Booq Folio full review
As the name suggests the Folio from Booq, a specialist in premium laptop bags, backpacks and iPad carrying cases, is a folio style iPad case. Handcrafted from, what the company claims is 100 per cent natural fibre, the Folio has a nice, tactile and quality feel about it. Designed for iPad 2 and the third generation iPad, the case features a tri-folded cover design which acts as a fairly sturdy and accommodating iPad stand. This can be manipulated to create a suitable viewing angle for which ever task you might have in mind - viewing video, reading and more. The Folio comes with Apple Smart Case style built-in magnets, making it compatible with the iPad's automatic sleep and wake functions.
By design the Folio does add a little bulk to your iPad, although little in the way of weight at just 0.30 kg. It isn't the easiest case to remove in a hurry although we are pleased to say access to ports, controls and the camera works well despite the snug fit. Currently the Folio comes in a choice of colours, although these perhaps with a nod to business, are all fairly muted, and with the exception of purple, all rather masculine. Booq are clearly a premium brand and that's reflected in the price, which despite the quality feel, is still an investment to be considered.
