Could the Origami Folio in fact be the slimmest iPad case on the market, as its manufacturer IPEVO claims? Quite possibly: with its super thin, lightweight microfiber exterior, this tablet case is just 4mm thick. And the origami-style foldout makes this case ideal for tablet users needing quick access.

Similarly to origami-style tablet cases by Ozaki and iLuv, the IPEVO KA-01 folio can be unfolded along the creases in just a few seconds in either portfolio or landscape positions for viewing. The microfiber material, however, sets the KA-01 apart: this tablet folio case’s exterior not only feels like a soft organic fiber, it also provides excellent protection from moisture, smearing and staining. The IPEVO Origami Folio also looks great with exterior available in four colors. On the minus side, the slightly mushy feel of the stand we experienced during the first few uses was worrisome. This will certainly improve over time, but then the sturdiness of what seems to be an extremely small magnet for the sleep function comes into question. While the Origami Folio will certainly make an excellent tablet case in the short- to medium-term, it’s doubtful this is among the longer-lasting cases out there.

            Overall: GOOD

            The IPEVO KA-01 Origami Folio is the best case scenario for tablet users on the go and frequent video viewers. The reasonable price and sleek minimalistic design will be absolutely irresistible for many.
