Need an iPad case that you can take to work without feeling like you're a teenager going through an accessories phase? We understand. There's a glut of iPad cases out there, but few with the professional sensibilities of the Scosche FoldIO P1.
A minimalist folio-style case, it looks like the perfect companion when taking your iPad to work. While everyone else in the meeting rolls out their tablets dressed to look like battle armors and Etch A Sketch slabs, yours carries the dignified stance of a no-nonsense, low-profile protective casing. Makes you feel like the only real adult in the room, doesn't it?
The Scosche FoldIO P1 comes in two styles - a leather texture and a carbon fiber texture (pictured) for the exterior. Both have suede interior lining for enhanced protection of your iPad, along with an open design for unrestricted access to ports and controls.
Like any self-respecting case, it allows angled tabletop viewing too. You get three landscape viewing positions, one for typing and one for vertical, all on top of doing without the unnecessary childishness of many iPad accessories.
Early reviews say it's definitely a premium case - none of those lousy hack jobs that passes off for an iPad case nowadays. You can get the Scosche FoldIO P1 for less than $40 online.
Elan Passport iPad Case is perhaps one of the more sleek looking cases available on the market today providing a highly functional passport folio-style jacket for your iPad. You really can't ask for anything more appealing than this in an iPad case. We've seen them all, from the best of travel cases to the best of iPad skins and the Elan Passport brings something far more interesting to the table. Incorporating stylish design concepts and managing to keep things looking clean, simple, and extremely well defined Griffin Technologies have truly constructed a masterpiece with this one. We never though we would say that about a $50 case that shouldn't run you more than a few hours work. It seems the developers at Griffin were able to provide the Passport and one of the cheapest entry level prices that we have seen in iPad cases that are this high of quality.
You will find that the folio-style case easily opens up through a hook and loop type locking mechanism and conveniently tucked and secured nicely inside you will find your iPad. The multi-touch display looking exceptionally elegant in this particular case. If you are a fan of books of the left to right reading style, this case is surely going to appeal to your liking.

We saw this design tactic implemented by Apple, NewerTech, and now it seems iKit is entering the race to provide one of the most luxurious, functional and appealing iPad case on the market. iKit definitely shouldn't be underestimated with this one either because they've brought a whole new set of features into the mix. The case does look designed like something that is sure to catch the eye of anyone looking into a leather case for their iPad.
While iKit might sell several iPad accessories and products, they really took their time with this one and it showed to be a success for the outcome. Making more of an appeal to me and standing out from their other product lines, it's only natural that I come to tell you about it. Made from only the highest quality in leathers the iKit Leather Folio has a rich black texture to it that is smooth to the touch. It's real leather which is unlike other companies who try to take the cheap approach into making there so called “leather” products from fake and unrealistic leather materials. No worries with the Leather Folio however. What's great about this case and what we truly loved about other cases is the option to fold the top cover of the case backward and use it as a stand for propping up your iPad. This just seems like a wonderful invention to us and every time a new company adds this extra functionality to their cases, it provides a little more respect toward their products. It just shows that they take the time to implement features that are important to its users.
At only $40 it is by far a much less expensive option than other leather cases. Providing a screen protector and even a case cleaning kit with your purchase, we couldn't advise your more strongly to take a closer look at this case and really examine what it provides compared to other leather cases that are going to really put a dent in your pocket. Screen protectors normally rise up the cost of cases but with the Leather Folio, they managed to keep the pricing for their entry level launch at relatively low conditions. iKit is definitely going to be on our radar and we will be notifying you over their future products because they are definitely one to look out for. Check out the Leather Folio from iKit and you won't be disappointed that you did.
