STM has release a range of Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note and Tab cases and covers.

I always felt deprived when shopping for a cover for my previous smart phones or tablets – let’s just say that if it was not Apple the choice was very limited.

Samsung have reached market penetration with the S4, Galaxy Note 8 and 10 and Tab 2 so Australian designer STM has released a new range of covers and cases.

The ‘Grip” for the S4 is available in lime, red, blue and black and provides protection against drops and a good solid grip surface (some reviewers have said that the S4 is slippery when wet). RRP $19.95.



The Note 10.1 and Tab 2 10.1 has a ‘Skinny” cover in berry and black. It adds 230g to the overall weight. It is made from 300D water resistant micro ripstop nylon with a micro suede interior. RRP is $49.95. 



The Note 8.0 has a ‘Cape” in grey or black and weights 150g. It is made from 300D velocity poly with a micro suede interior. RRP $TBA.

iTWire supports great Aussie companies like STM founded in 1998 in Bondi Beach, Sydney.
