The Apple Pad was only unveiled this week, but Griffin Technology is already launching a range of cases to protect the new slate PC.

The Elan Passport is a one-piece case that opens and closes like a book, allowing users to reveal the iPad's multitouch display.

It features a micro suede lining, is held shut by a tab closure and includes inner pockets for storing items such as your credit card.

The Elan Sleeve has a stain-resistant synthetic outer shell with a smooth micro suede interior and allow users to slip their iPad straight into the sleeve.

Alternatively, the Griffin FlexiGrip is a silicone case that wraps around your Apple iPad, yet still allowing access to the audio output jack, dock connector, display and controls.

It's available in blue, white, black and purple.

Finally Griffin is also offering the Jumper - a soft and stretchy neoprene sleeve with integrated pull tab tucks to completely cover the iPad.

"The iPad marks an exciting step forward for consumer electronics," said Paul Griffin, Founder and CEO of Griffin Technology.

We are committed to producing devices that enhance the technological experience, and these new accessories for iPad are a great addition to the Griffin family."

Prices and availability details have yet to be released.
