As I mentioned last week, my Vaja Agenda 2 case arrived recently and I’ve now spent a few days using it. I recorded a video today going over the case and my initial impressions of it:
I am far too excited about this case and wanted to do a quick blog post about it. The Vaja Agenda 2 case I ordered in early August arrived today and it is absolutely fantastic. I do plan to make a first impressions video of it soon (over the weekend at this rate) so you can see more of it shortly.
In terms of functionality, it’s essentially a leather version of Apple’s own iPad case. A far more expensive, luxurious, and nicer smelling version, that is. (Why is the scent of tanned dead cow skin so wonderful? There must be something wrong with me.)
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.
I ordered the Vaja iVolution Dockable case for my iPhone 3G a little while ago, expecting it to be like the Incase Slider in functionality but with a little more panache. Unfortunately, the case did not fit well at all, putting constant pressure on the volume buttons, rendering my iPhone unusable (or at least unpleasant to use) while in the case. I recorded this video for Vaja’s customer service department to show them what I meant in addition to describing it in my email. I admit I didn’t make this video for macgirl.net, so it lacks the amount of preparation and polish (and I would have done my nails, dammit!) I would have attempted in that case, but I thought I’d put it up here for your viewing pleasure anyway. 😉 For the record, Vaja promptly issued a return authorization, so this case is on its way back to them for a refund…
Just a quick update since I need to dive into work and not come up for air for the next week or so. I received the Vaja iVolution Dockable case late last week and it doesn’t fit well. In fact, it fits so poorly that it’s not even usable – it applies constant pressure to the volume buttons and causes the volume indicator to appear constantly on my iPhone’s screen. *Sigh* I’m going to contact Vaja’s customer service department soon, and everything I’ve heard to date about them indicates it may well be a long process to address this. I’d be fine with a replacement, though I’ll also opt for my money back if possible, since it was a bit of a frivolous purchase to begin with, I must admit.
