As awesome as the Booq Boa Push is, an iPad bag just might not be in your sights. If you'd rather have a case with the same stylish elegance of the Push, you should take a look at the Booq Boa Folio.
In many ways, it mimics Apple's slimline iPad sleeve in design. You slide the iPad into the container, with its edges enclosed and its ports accessible via cut-out windows. The flap can fold completely or into a stand for tabletop use. Booq, however, has seen fit to throw in a few extras.
The Boa Folio's 10.75 x 8.5 x 0.75 inch frame includes a wide pocket space on the inner flap, allowing you to slip notes, calling cards and cheat sheets within easy reach. Outside, it keeps a front pocket, where you can throw your iPhone or some other small thingamajig you want to take when working with your tablet.
Elegant in looks, it's sewn from genuine Nappa leather and Twylon. The inside bumper frame is molded and rubberized for securing your iPad in place. Body is padded, as well, giving your slate extra protection from bumps and nudges.
You can get the Booq Boa Folio in a range of neutral colors, priced at $89.95.
Do you love your iPad to death, but can't get rid of the netbook form factor for on-the-road use? Slip your tablet inside the KeyCase iPad Folio, a carrying case with a built-in Bluetooth 2.0 keyboard that lets you type on your iPad as if you're using a regular laptop.
As awesome as the iPad is, all that fancy multi-touch is no match for a notebook computer when it comes to getting heavy typing done. This "keyboard case" creatively mimics that, giving you a physical QWERTY keyboard, along with propping the slate at an adjustable angle. When not in use, the flap holding the keyboard can be folded right under the iPad, allowing you to use the tablet the way it was meant for.
The Keycase iPad Folio is a book-style protective case that holds the iPad on one flap and the keyboard on the other. A magnetic fastening secures the device when you close it shut, with the durable exterior protecting it from the rigors of regular handling.
Keyboard has a built-in battery that it can juice for up to 45 hours of active use on a single charge. It's dust-proof and spill-proof too, making it ideal for on-the-go use. Features include an auto-sleep mode when the keyboard is idle for 10 minutes and a dedicated pairing button for quickly reconnecting.
Availability of the KeyCase iPad Folio appears to be restricted to Gear Zap (for now), who are pricing it at £59.95 (including taxes). The case only comes in one color (black) and includes a one year warranty.
