After unveiling its updated iPhone 5 BookBook case, Twelve South has announced BookBook for iPad mini, Apple’s smaller tablet. The case sells for $70 and is available now online.
Weighing 7.5 ounces, this newest BookBook is made with genuine leather and there are dual zippers on the top and bottom to allow full access to ports. The case comes in three colors: Vintage Brown, Classic Black and Vibrant Red.
Orders can be placed on the Twelve South website.
Press release from Twelve South:
BookBook also has an interior support frame to securely hold your iPad and showcase its amazing display. Lift the support frame and fold down the built-in kickstand to angle iPad mini for typing and for use as a secondary touchscreen desktop computer. BookBook angles iPad mini perfectly on your desk for using productivity apps like Calculator, Reminders, and Notes while you work on your Mac. Stay focused on the big screen while iPad mini and BookBook handle the small, but important tasks.
This clever case also works as a viewing stand for watching your favorite movies and videos, or having FaceTime chats. It adjusts to the best angle for glare-free viewing. Another handy feature is the hand grip that is created when you fold back the hardback covers on BookBook for iPad mini. Why is this important?Compared to iPad, iPad mini has a very slim outer bezel. So, the “handle” on BookBook keeps your fingers from getting in the way of what you’re reading or watching on iPad mini.
As with other Twelve South BookBook cases, this version also protects your Apple device from the eyes of would-be thieves. Resting on a coffee table inside your home or on a counter in a coffee shop, BookBook looks like a vintage book rather than a valuable iPad mini.
Andrew Green, Creative Director of Twelve South said, “The compact size and feel of our newest BookBook seems to just complete the iPad mini. Quite often, the only accessory you need for an iPad is a great multi-function case: When it comes to unique protection, functionality, and flexibility, we think our new BookBook for iPad mini accomplishes this better than most with a style all its own.”
