Let DODOcase Protect Your iPad 2 from Extinction

The Gadgeteer has featured DODOcase covers in the past; they make covers for iPads and other devices that look like the iconic Moleskine notebooks.  They are now announcing the DODOcase for iPad 2.  It’s made with black Moroccan cloth and traditional book-binding methods.  Inside is a bamboo casing that holds the iPad 2 securely in place and leaves all the controls and connectors accessible – but you will have to remove the iPad 2 to use the back camera.  And just like the Moleskine notebook, the DODOcase is held closed with an elastic band.  The DODOcase for iPad 2 has a bookplate on the inside front cover, and it is lined in your choice of red, charcoal, sky blue, or green for $59.95, or purple, orange, pink, or dark blue for $64.95.  The cases will ship in 2-3 weeks.

    WARNING–My personal experience is that this a defective product. I purchased two of these and both have warped and cracked within one month of purchase. Whatever glue they use to bind the bamboo to the backing, it DOES NOT maintain adhesion.

    Sad because it is a beautiful cover…but I wouldn’t waste my money.

    I bought the original Dodocase when I got my original iPad 3G at release. Absolutely beautiful case that I adored, but with one major problem. It flat wore out in less than 5 months. I use my iPad 10 hours a day opening and closing it probably a hundred times daily. The paper outer martial just wasn’t up to this level of use and just wore out at the two lines where it bends. Ends of looking terrible with only the inner cloth holding it together. I just don’t thing that traditional book materials are up to this level of constant use. I now use the Mophie case which has a similar look and isn’t quite as classy, but it’s faux leather material is much more rugged and shows no signs of wear after a comparable period – plus it props the iPad at any angle.
