Dodocase for iPad mimics Moleskine journals

Dodocase has introduced its new Dodocase for iPad, a horizontally-opening flip style case. Similar to the Incase Convertible Book Jacket, the Dodocase takes its design cues from the popular Moleskine line of notebooks and journals, including a black, faux leather exterior and elastic closing strap. Other features include a padded bamboo iPad holder, the ability to fold the front cover back for use as a horizontal stand, cut-outs for access to all ports and controls, and a fabric interior lining. The Dodocase for iPad is available now for delivery in 4-6 weeks and sells for $50.

Finally got my Dodocase and I really can’t say enough good things about it. I’m a Moleskin fanatic, and this was like a gift of manna from heaven.

One thing - the case didn’t really keep my iPad firmly fixed inside the bamboo frame and it fell out rather easily if I opened the case too quickly. I emailed the Dodocase folks and they mailed me a new set of rubber bumpers, which I just stuck on top of the existing ones. Perfect fit - this iPad ain’t going nowhere.

Bought the Dodocase back in July. Loved it at first and thought it was a well built product. After it slid off my lap in a reclainer, from a height of less than 2 feet in October, the frame cracked. I glued it back in place, and it never held tight again. Bumpers from the original came off within two months of purchase and the ipad hit me in the face one night while watching in bed. Ordered the replacements (four sets) and then the replacement bumpers (all four sets) came off by the beginning of December. Late December I fell while coming down the steps and the case dropped from three feet. Frame shattered. Needless to say, a replacement case (not from Dodocase) was purchased for me for Christmas. Loved the look when I first received it, and it did well for around three months. After that it was down hill due to bumper issues not holding the pad in place correctly. Agree with Dodocase that it is not meant to be dropped and is fragile, but they have to understand that things happen. Sadly the case went in the garbage last night.
