Description

    CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • [0001]
    The following application is based on and claims the priority benefit of U.S. provisional application Ser. No.: 61/890,826 filed Oct. 14, 2013 currently co-pending; the entire contents of which are incorporated by reference.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    Cases for electronic devices are provided. The first case for an electronic device has a first unit and a second unit wherein the second unit is a removable back portion having a storage compartment which is secured in a flush manner with respect to the back of the first unit. Alternatively, the second unit (or “third layer”) is a removable securing layer which is temporarily secured to the back of the first unit of the first case and wherein the second unit may be carried by a lanyard or strap. Finally, a second case for an electronic device has a protective cover which rotates from a first position to a second position wherein in the first position the protective cover covers the electronic device and wherein the second position the protective cover allows access to the electronic device.
  • [0003]
    Attempts have been made to provide useful cases for electronic devices. For example, U.S. Pat. No.: 6,754,344 to Kohli discloses a case for a folding-type mobile telephone which is divisible into two sections, each section having a room. The room of one section is for the body of the phone and the room of the other section is for cover. Each section has elastic portions and the sections snap together so that the case can fit a wide variety of phone models, regardless of size. An antenna fixing strap is also provided so that the phone will not easily fall out of the case.
  • [0004]
    Further, U.S. Pat. No.: 6,454,146 to Alis discloses a cell phone holder having a fixed, substantially horizontal, phone pocket with an open end, the phone pocket sized to firmly hold the phone at the waist of a user when not in use, yet quickly release the phone through the open end when needed.
  • [0005]
    And, U.S. Pat. No.: 6,934,517 to Fujihashi discloses a cellular phone holder, which can hold a standard type cellular phone as well as a collapsible type cellular phone having different sizes, respectively. Thus cellular phone holder is comprised of a lateral case capable of holding cellular phones of different width, and a longitudinal strap belt attached in a manner so as to intersect with the lateral case. Thus lateral case is formed of a single trunk member in which the trunk member is bent into a cylindrical shape and secured by Velcro tape attached in plural portions. A ring couples thus longitudinal strap belt to a plurality of strap belts and thus, a portion of the longitudinal strap belt is structured by an elastic material.
  • [0006]
    However, these patents fail to disclose cases for electronic devices which have a unique removable back portion. Further, these patents lack a removable second unit having a lanyard or strap which is easy to use and efficient. Accordingly, a need exists for improved cases for electronic devices.
