If the iPad is a success despite Apple’s usual premium pricing then it makes sense that its accessories can be luxury goods, too.
I haven’t seen many cheapo iPad cases but plenty that are over £40.
Apple’s own iPad case (£30) is non-slip and slim but marks too easily.
The Incase Convertible Book Jacket is smart with its Moleskine-like elastic closure and multiple viewing angle, but is pretty chunky. The faux-leather finish gives a satisfactory level of plushness.
If you want your iPad case to be both smart and luxurious go for one of Sena’s genuine leather cases.
Both the Sena Folio and ZipBook iPad cases are reassuringly expensive, at a cool £69.95.
The super-smart Sena Folio (available in black, brown and red) offers not just real leather but an interior soft velvet lining.
It’s really like a giant snap-shut luxury wallet, with four credit card slots, a transparent ID card pocket, and even space for a chequebook. Behind that there’s further space for storing your papers.
While it doesn’t boast as many viewing angles as the Incase Book Jacket the Sena Folio does feature a back stand that offers firmly supported display view.
All the iPad’s slots are accessible, as you’d expect.
