I’ve seen cases that combine a paper notepad with tablet storage, but the Carezza Phone Pocket Folio from Levenger is the first I’ve seen that has storage for a smart phone. Carezza leather is buttery soft but strong, and it’s available in the black or purple shown in the image (click for a better view). Inside the folio, you’ll find one of Levenger’s ruled 90-gsm Freeleaf Notepads with the wide annotation margin that’s perfect for showing action points or to-dos. There are also slots for extra papers, cards, and a pen inside. The folio is held closed by magnets; the closure “flap” is the smart phone case. You’ll be able to fit a caseless iPhone 5 or a Samsung Galaxy S3 and still have room for your ID, some cash, or even some 3X5 cards. The Carezza Phone Pocket Folio is $169.00.
