Carrying Case for a Tablet Computer

      Disclosed is a carrying case for a tablet computer, including
special provisions for carrying a number of accessories permitting
the use of the computer as a mobile communications terminal and as a
regular workstation.  The carrying case is composed of a nylon
fabric, reinforced with vacuum formed plastic inserts and
high-density foam to provide rigidity and shock resistance.

      Fig. 1 shows the carrying case as seen from above, in front,
and to the left.  Fig. 2 shows the carrying case as seen from above,
in front, and to the right.  Fig. 3 shows a frame structure used
within the carrying case, as viewed from above, in front, and to the
left.  Fig. 4 shows the carrying case as seen from above and behind.

      Referring to Fig. 1, carrying case 10 includes a central
portion 12, to which a pair of pivotally attached end portions 14 and
16 are closed by means of zippers 18.  When each zipper 18 is opened,
the associated end portion 14 or 16 may be swung into an open
position.  Opening left end portion 14 in this way reveals a molded
phone holder 20 having a cavity 22 for carrying a portable telephone
(not shown).  End portion 14 includes a foam cushion 24.

      Referring to Fig. 2, right end portion 16, which can be opened
in a similar fashion, includes a molded electrical equipment holder

cavity 30 for holding cords (not shown).
