    I figured this could be fun and might give users a few ideas for cases that aren't just a big block of black rubber. So post some cases that don't look like car tyres! :)

    I guess I'll start! This [shill links deleted - DM51]

    This is the handmade-to-order Oberon Design folio I have. Has been known to cause accidents.

    I don't think Oberon could price their items any lower, because of their business model: all their items are handmade to order using top-grain leather. This is the best quality of the hide, which takes the longest amount of effort and time to cure and dye in preparation for manufacturing. Each item is handmade to order, which means they do not have economies of scale or efficiency you'd find, say, in a factory production line which can ramp up or down quantities to meet demand - if a craftsman can make that many cases in a day, then he can only make that many. More orders arriving than that and there'd be a backlog. With Oberon, you are paying for and getting quality in the material and workmanship, and not just merely for the reputation of the 'brand' like, say, Kate Spade or Montblanc or LV etc.

    I am aware:) I bought one for the nook lol..I have the zagg,and two other covers.Oh I LOVE LV btw:) Kate Spade too but I chased Oberon cover over the Nooks Kate spade cover,it was made soooooooo much better.
    For ebooks I find Oberon to work for me,but the IPad I want something different.I watched the video and considered it.:)

    I have and really like their iPad2 case. The leather has a finish that will age and develop character over time.

    To be honest, the Oberon iPad 2 cover is a totaly non-starter for me, because it does not have the rear camera port or magnetic activation. No matter how great it looks, a case which inhbits the functionality of the device is a poor design - it's like driving a Mercedes but you can only get in and out through the sunroof. We also know that in this instance, Oberon were rushing to get the case out to market, in view of strong demand from customers who were willing for forgo the functionality for beauty.

    I agree with you,I wonder how they expect to sell the IPad 2 covers??
    I also prefer other methods of propping the iPad...their elastics do need replacing.I may try to trAde nook covers for a different design.....I traded my red roses n now miss it.
    If I wasn't sooo sick of black,I would order the new nook,get another cover for it.I think they arr the best dresser covers....beautiful work.
    I love talking accessories lol....and anybody see the Bella Borsa iPad bags ....and I think men should carry them too lol

    I think many of them are existing customers, whom I guess are happy/willing to sacrifice some device functionality to own another Oberon item.

    I put a colorful skin on mine--the pychodelic mushrooms from Alice in Wonderland--for the time being, lol. I am still looking for the perfect case. I had never seen the Oberon cases before. I want beauty and functionality with minimal weight. Of course half the fun is in the looking.

    I have a 'Yoobao', leather case for my iPad 2 and, to be honest, I couldn't think of any improvements that could be made to it.

    I think it looks great but I'd worry that the iPad miht slip out; doesn't appear to have something to keep it from slipping... Or maybe it's there but I'm just not seeing it?
