The surfaces of the electronic devices cannot be dirtied, scraped, or damaged. Users can feel more comfortable when operating their electronic devices, hence, the worthiness and the usability of the electronic devices are greatly enhanced.

Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • The present invention relates to a protective cover, and more specifically to a protective cover that adheres onto an electronic device to protect the electronic device.
  • 2. Description of the Prior Art
  • Now a days, electronic devices, such as notebook computers/laptops, digital cameras, mobile phones/smart phones, Global Positioning Systems, MP3/MP4 players, portable media players, and PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants), are widely used due to their portable characteristics. However, when they are in use or are being carried, the electronic devices often collide with other objects. Moreover, the surfaces of the electronic devices can be scraped, or, the electronic devices can be damaged. Hence, the appearance of the electronic devices are badly affected, and the inside electronic elements of the electronic devices may be damaged.
  • Hence, the inventors of the present invention believe that these shortcomings above are able to be improved upon and suggest the present invention which is of a reasonable design and is an effective improvement based on deep research and thought.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • An object of the present invention is to provide a protective cover for an electronic device, the protective cover adheres onto the electronic device. Hence, the surfaces of electronic devices are prevented from being dirtied, scraped, or damaged, and the appearances of the electronic devices can be well maintained. Moreover, the inside electronic elements of the electronic devices cannot be damaged. The worthiness and the usability of the electronic devices are therefore greatly increased. Users can feel more relaxed about the safety of their electronic devices because that the outer surface of the protective cover is made from leather.
  • To achieve the above-mentioned object, a protective cover for an electronic device is disclosed. The protective cover comprises a leather layer, and a backing layer. The leather layer comprises an outside surface and an inside surface and the backing layer integrates with the inside surface of the leather layer.
  • The advantages of the present invention are: the protective cover adheres onto the electronic devices, hence, when it is in use or is being carried, the electronic devices are well protected. Other objects are obstructed from colliding directly with the surfaces of the electronic devices. Hence, the surfaces of the electronic devices cannot be dirtied, scraped, or damaged, and the appearances of the electronic devices can be well maintained. Also, the inside electronic elements of the electronic devices cannot be damaged. Moreover, the protective cover having a leather layer is tactile and pleasing to touch and enhances visual effects. Users can feel more comfortable when operating their electronic devices, hence, the worthiness and the usability of the electronic devices are greatly enhanced.
  • To further understand the features and technical contents of the present invention, please refer to the following detailed description and drawings related to the present invention. However, the drawings are only to be used as references and explanations, and not to limit the present invention.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • FIG. 1 is an explored isometric view of the protective cover of the present invention;
  • FIG. 2 is an isometric view of the protective cover of the present invention;
  • FIG. 3 is a cutaway view of the protective cover of the present invention;
  • FIG. 4 is an isometric view (1) of the protective cover in use of the present invention;
  • FIG. 5 is an isometric view (2) of the protective cover in use of the present invention;
  • FIG. 6 is an isometric view (3) of the protective cover in use of the present invention.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • Please refer to FIGS. 1-3, in which a protective cover for an electronic device is shown. The protective cover adheres onto portable electronic devices such as notebook computers, digital cameras, mobile phones, or PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants), etc. The protective cover includes a leather layer 1 and a backing layer 2. The leather layer 1 is made of leather. The shape of the leather layer 1 is designed according to that of the electronic device and the adhering position. In the present embodiment, the shape of the leather layer 1 is a quadrate type.
  • Two opposite surfaces of a leather layer 1 are an outside surface 11 and an inside surface 12 respectively. Surfaces of the leather layer 1 can be plain and simple, or, the outside surface 11 of the leather layer 1 can be set with a picture 13 via pressing line, printing, or punching, etc. The types of the picture 13 are unlimited, and the picture 13 can include letters or paintings, thereby providing advertisements or decorations to the surface of the electronic device.
  • The backing layer 2 is adhered on the inside surface 12 of the leather layer 1. The backing layer 2 is a kind of glue and can be repeatedly adhered. The shape of the backing layer 2 corresponds to that of the leather layer 1. The backing layer 2 can cover the entire inside surface 12 of the leather layer 1, or, the backing layer 2 can cover part of the inside surface 12 of the leather layer 1. Hence, the protective cover of the electronic device of the present invention is formed by the structure.
  • The protective cover of the present invention can be adhered on the surface of an upper cover 31 of a notebook computer 3 by the backing layer 2 (refer to FIG. 4), or, can be adhered on the surface of a keyboard 32 of the notebook computer 3 (refer to FIG. 5). The shape of the protective cover corresponds to that of the notebook computer 3 and the adhering position. The protective cover of the present invention can be adhered on the surface of a shell 41 of a PDA 4 by the backing layer 2 (refer to FIG. 6).
  • The protective cover of the present invention can be adhered on the electronic devices such as notebook computers/laptops, digital cameras, mobile phones/smart phones, Global Positioning Systems, MP3/MP4 players, portable media players, and PDAs, etc. Hence, when in use or when it is being carried, the electronic devices are well protected. Other objects are obstructed from colliding directly with the surfaces of the electronic devices. Hence, the surfaces of the electronic devices are prevented form being dirtied, scraped, or damaged, and the appearances of the electronic devices can be well maintained. Also, the inside electronic elements of the electronic devices cannot be damaged.
  • Moreover, the leather layer 1 and the picture 13 of the present invention is tactile and pleasing to touch and enhances visual effects. Users can feel more comfortable when operating their electronic devices, hence, the worthiness and the usability of the electronic devices are greatly enhanced.
  • What is disclosed above are only the preferred embodiments of the present invention, and therefore it is intended that the present invention not be limited to the particular embodiment disclosed. It should be understood by those skilled in the art that various equivalent changes may be made depending on the specification and the drawings of present invention without departing from the scope of the present invention.
