    TUAW has a story today about a new iPad case from Pong Research, which the manufacturer claims is designed to boost your iPad’s 3G signal, which is the opposite effect that using a case would normally have on the signal, as according to a story on Ars Technica, also quoted by TUAW, a normal iPad case would, as a rule, weaken the 3G signal emanating from the iPad, and mean a slower data rate. As far as the Pong Research case is concerned, it ensures that your iPad 3G signal will not be weakened by being covered, by placing a small hole right next to the proximity sensor, which has been installed on the iPad in order to protect the user from exposure to radiation from the 3G signal, by weakening the signal if the user gets too close to their iPad. TUAW says that the case has also been fitted with an integrated circuit board, which redistributes any excess radiation away from the user’s body. According to the Ars Technica report, the case actually does work on both counts, so if you like the sound of it, click here to order: Pong Products - Pong™ Case and Cover for the iPad 2

      love the case but way too expensive for what it gives.

      Interesting. I don't care for cases with screen covers, and my 3G reception is generally fine, but I like the idea of better radiation protection. Of course, there's no way I could tell whether that feature worked as advertised.

      Someone gave me a Pong iPhone case, and it's well made as far as I can tell.

      Gimmicks. As if any consumer agency was going to make them verify their claims. I'm sure there are fools out there who will shell out $100 for this.

      It states how it doesn't decrease the 3G signal, but not how it increases it.
    5. Kaykaykay
      Yes, it's supposed to help preserve the signal, unlike other cases, not boost the signal.
    6. tlbaker
      Yes I saw that and it's probably not guaranteed.
