DODOcase ( is announcing its limited first edition iPad case. Hand built and designed in San Francisco, CA the DODOcase takes the best of the traditional hardcover book/journal and brings it to an iPad case with inspiration from the Moleskine writing journals we all know and love, says Patrick Buickley, founder and CEO of DODOcase.

The DODOcase’s protective cover is constructed using traditional book binding techniques. The iPad is held in place by a carved bamboo piece with foam inserts for added protection. Lightweight, strong and eco-friendly, the DODOcase design enables easy access to your iPad on the go with a fold around cover and a simple lift out for when you want to take the iPad from its case, says Buckley.

Orders are being accepted now at DODOcase online. Due to high demand cases will ship in 3-5 weeks. The price is normally US$49.95, but, for a limited time, there’s a 20% discounted price of $39.95 (USD) when using the discount code “iPadLaunch.”
