Default Vaja's Libretto Limited Edition iPad 2 Case: Gorgeous!

<p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/l_CwHeRYpoU&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/l_CwHeRYpoU&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" /></object></p><p>This is my review of the <a href="http://www.vajacases.com" target="_blank">Vaja Libretto Limited Edition</a> leather cases for the iPad 2. The leather colour/style is "Mamut", and yes, it's as gorgeous as it looks. Ringing in at $190 USD, this is a premium-brand, luxury case. It's designed for someone who cares as much about how good the case looks as what it actually does. Thankfully, the Vaja case delivers good functionality along with the distinctive look. It lacks a second angle, but is otherwise similar to many other cases out there - it's basically the leather materials and hand-made approach that sets Vaja cases apart from the mass-manufactured cases you're probably used to.</p><p>The biggest thing to be aware of is that a case made of leather is going to wear and get "character" over time - nicks, scratches, tears, etc. It will look worn in a matter of months, so you don't buy a case like this expecting it to have the "looks the same as it always does" durability that a synthetic case does. As long as you're aware of that, I have no hesitation recommending this case - it's beautiful, unique-looking, and has the basic functionality you want in an iPad 2 case.</p><p>Interested in the DecalGirl skin? <a href="http://is.gd/OrS9Nk" target="_blank">Here's the link</a>.</p><p><em>Jason Dunn owns and operates </em><em><a href="http://www.thoughtsmedia.com/" target="_blank">Thoughts Media Inc.</a></em><em>, a company dedicated to creating the best in online communities.
