On the day before the iPad was released in the U.S., I placed an order for a DODOcase for my soon-to-arrive iPad. I was attracted to these cases because they look just like Moleskine notebooks and I wanted a case that would both protect and “camouflage” my iPad for use in public and the DODOcase looked like it would be perfect. I received the case just over a week ago and have been using it regularly and I love it, though I do have a couple of minor issues with it. Read my full review of the DODOcase to find out the details and see up-close-and-personal pictures of it in action.
If you follow me on Twitter, you probably saw that I talked about ordering a DODOcase case for my iPad on the day before the iPad was released. I love the look of Moleskine notebooks and wanted at least one case for my iPad that provided a bit of camouflage while using it in public. The DODOcase fit the bill and I placed my order right away. It arrived today (well within the 4-6 week delivery window) and I’m just starting to use it and wanted to post a quick video of it to start off. I will write a full review of it after I spend some time using it regularly.
- The case is well-made and doesn’t feel flimsy at all.
- It fits the iPad very well and the pictures and description of it at Dodocase.com are accurate.
- It makes my iPad look like a large Moleskine notebook from afar (or even up close if someone doesn’t look closely at the edges to see the cut-outs and the sides of the iPad), which is exactly what I was hoping for.
- My only durability concern revolves around the four foam pieces in each corner. These serve to hold the iPad in place and they could compress over time and fail to hold the iPad in securely enough. I won’t hazard a guess at how long they’ll hold up, but I’m not extremely worried about them now.
WOO HOO! Only a 47 hours, 43 minutes, and 10 seconds until the iPad is released! I will be at my local Apple Store bright and early on April 3 to pick up my pre-ordered iPad. I think I’m going to shoot for being in line at 7:00 am or so to ensure I’m somewhere close to the front of the line and can get in and out quickly to get home and play with it as quickly as possible.
Yesterday I mentioned that I could envision having 2 cases for my iPad – one silicone skin-type case without a cover for reading and other casual use around home and another one with a cover to protect it while I’m traveling with it. For the latter, I’ve come across one contender so far – the Cloak by Quirky.
I succumbed to the allure of yet another case for my iPhone – this time it’s a selection that’s perfect for Halloween, to boot. It gives my iPhone teeth. Yes, teeth! It’s the Demon silicone case from Ideal-Case and you can see my review of it here.
