LifeProof-nuud-iPad mini-release-announcement-01Popular smartphone and tablet protective case maker LifeProof has just dropped a brand new nuud case for iPad mini. The case is now available for $120 with free shipping from LifeProof (which is about the street price for their bigger waterproof iPad cases).

Like its previous nuud cases, the iPad mini version will bring the company’s Screenless Technology that uses a compression lock system to keep your device protected from water, dust particles and shock damage, without the need of obtrusive screen covers etc. The case is built to survive a drop of up to 4 ft., exceeding military specifications for shock and vibration protection, according to LifeProof. As for water damage, your device can be submerged underwater at up to 6.6 ft. for one hour.

nüüd protects iPad mini from plunges and fumbles while keeping the screen open for direct touch. That’s right, you can touch the touchscreen — because touchscreen should be touched! And, the barely-there design is so slim and sleek, you won’t notice it’s there, until you’re glad it is

Even with all that protection all the buttons, ports and other functionality are completely accessible. The rear camera is protected with an anti-reflective optical glass lens to ensure protection and picture quality. Additionally, there is a shoulder strap included (seen below) and a portfolio cover is now available for it in black and gray at $40. Other accessories LifeProof will be launching soon include a floating LifeJacket for $60 and a mounting cradle for $50.
