Description



FIG. 1 is a front perspective view of a protective cover for an electronic device;

FIG. 2 is a bottom view of the protective cover for an electronic device;

FIG. 3 is a front view of the protective cover for an electronic device;

FIG. 4 is a left-side view of the protective cover for an electronic device;

FIG. 5 is a right-side view of the protective cover for an electronic device;

FIG. 7 is a top view of the protective cover for an electronic device; and,

FIG. 8 is a rear perspective view of the protective cover for an electronic device.

The broken lines immediately adjacent to the claimed surfaces represent boundaries of the claimed design. In FIGS. 6 and 8, a broken line boundary delineates a substantially rectangular, unshaded, central region that is not part of the claimed design. This broken-line boundary is directed only to the underlying exterior surface of the case; it is not directed to the raised surfaces of the rib structure, shown in solid lines which is part of the claimed design. All other broken lines depict unclaimed environment. The broken lines form no part of the claimed design.
