Tech-Savvy iPad Covers

The Padova iPad Case by Orbino Features Smart Cover Technology

— March 14, 2011 — Business
For those looking for something a bit more ambitious than your average run-of-the-mill iPad protection, the Padova iPad Case by Orbino offers something a little bit more tech-savvy than what you'd normally expect.

In addition to its handmade leather exterior, the Padova iPad Case by Orbino also features technology that is fully integrated with the iPad 2's smart-cover technology. In this way the Padova iPad Case by Orbino turns your iPad screen on and off whenever you open or close the case's flap.

Although the standard handmade model is being offered relatively modest price of $200, the Padova iPad Case by Orbino is available in models made out of crocodile, snake or ostrich skin for those looking for something slightly more luxurious (if, albeit, less animal-friendly).
Trend Themes
1. Smart Cover Technology - The integration of smart cover technology into iPad cases presents an opportunity for tech-savvy accessory companies to enhance the user experience.
2. Handmade Luxury Cases - The demand for handmade luxury iPad cases made from exotic materials like crocodile, snake, or ostrich skin creates a market for high-end accessory manufacturers.
3. Tech-enhanced Protection - The trend of combining stylish design with innovative features, like the ability to turn the iPad on and off, opens up opportunities for companies to differentiate themselves in the competitive iPad case market.
Industry Implications
1. Technology Accessories - The integration of smart cover technology into iPad cases presents an opportunity for technology accessory companies to innovate and provide added value to customers.
2. Luxury Goods - The demand for high-end iPad cases made from luxury materials creates a niche market for luxury goods manufacturers to cater to affluent consumers.
3. Fashion and Design - The trend of tech-enhanced iPad cases presents a chance for fashion and design companies to merge style with functionality, appealing to fashion-conscious consumers.
