Smartphone cases can be used for political advertisement.
If political smart phone cases are too conservative for your taste, try the following:1. Cloud Pillow lap desk for $49 - The ad says “It’s like reading on cloud nine. You and your book will both stay cool and cozy” with the help of this canvas beanbag cushion that hoists your book, notebook, iPad or e-reader as you read or study. It comes in denim blue with poly-foam beads inside. (Available at Levenger.com)
2. Lakota International Phone Pocket Briefcase for $69. A bison leather phone case with a passport holder, pen holder but no pen, and a 3X5 notepad for ‘on-the-go jotting.’ If you want the pen, the price jumps to $88. That’s a $19 dollar pen-- must be a good one. (Available at Levenger.com)
3. TUMI Ballistic Snap Case for iPad 2 for $95. This protective case for the iPad 2 acts as a portfolio-style case cover, and folds into an easel so you can work anywhere. The cover has “hidden magnetic activation,” so it puts the device to sleep when it’s closed and wakes it up when the cover opens. The case comes in leather, or “ballistic nylon with faux suede interiors”- sounds fancy, eh? (Available at Tumi.com)
4. Moleskin Digital Folio for $55. The famous paper notebook brand now makes a digital folio--aka an iPhone holder with a notepad. “Moleskin brings together the best of the digital and pen-and-paper worlds with this unique iPhone case, which also contains a side-loading notepad.” (Available at Levenger.com)
5. Kate Spade “iPad Folio Hedgehog Case” for $85. Yes, for only $85 you can have a case covered in green hedgehogs. Spade’s products are known for their bold colors and catchy phrases. For example, another $50 iPad sleeve reads “Play Hooky.” How precious.
