The folks at Cooper Cases are apparently quite proud of this tablet folio case: After all, it’s described as both “Infinite” and “Universal” in its lofty name. And in a few aspects, Cooper’s pride may be justified. Unfortunately, too many generic features (including the look) detract from the overall product.
Beyzacases Executive II Apple iPad 2/3/4 Leather Folio Case in Black
The Executive II by the Turkish company Beyza Cases integrates the functionality of Apple’s Smart Cover with increased protective features in a fashionable black leather design. Use the handmade case for typing or for viewing—either way it will look great and keep your Apple iPad2 safe from unexpected damage and general wear and tear
- Custom fit to your iPad2
- Integrated stand for high functionality
- More protective than Apple’s Smart Cover
- Cannot stand up in portrait mode
- Expensive price tag
- Must replace with next iPad model
Your iPad2 slides securely and easily into this snug, hand-stitched black protective leather case from Beyza Case. All external features of your iPad2 (recharge, front and back camera, headphone jack, power switch) are easily accessible in the case’s custom designed multiple openings. The inside cover features Alacantra lining along with magnetic fasteners to assure closure, prevent scratching and dust collection. The front cover folds similarly to Apple’s Smart Cover and allows two tablet stand viewing positions: keyboard typing and movie or FaceTime position. While being versatile and highly functional, The Executive II unfortunately only benefits landscape mode.
- Designed for perfect fit with iPad 2
- Access to basic functions (multiple openings)
- 2 multi-purpose stand positions
- All-leather and handmade
- Hidden magnetic closure
- Hand-crafted for ultimate protection
- Soft lining and protection against scratching
- Sleep function support
- Opening for recharge
The Executive II does all the basics, and does them well. The design provides auto sleep/wake function and clear access to all iPad controls and features. And the smart cover-like folding stand makes a solid base for typing or for viewing your favorite YouTube clips. The lack of use in portrait mode is remedied by integrating the case with a tripod stand.
The magnetic fasteners make sure that the front cover won’t detach in your briefcase or backpack. It is durable and rugged, giving you exterior and interior protection. The case however does not protect the tablet against dropping or other significant damage.
The hand-stitched black leather is robust, durable and protective so you won’t have to worry about replacing this case or your iPad anytime soon.
The $190 price tag is way too high for many. But of course, some will find the sublime quality construction and genuine leather feel to be too irresistible.
The Apple iPad is a lifestyle investment in quality and design. Likewise so is The Executive II and a best case scenario for those who want to spoil their most cherished device.
"Luxury for your iPad 2"
This is a best case to make a positive impression at a business meeting. Your prospective partners will surely notice the exquisite leather case by your side. I speak from personal experience, this baby helped me turn a couple of jealous heads.
The luxurious aspect of the Executive II is not the only great thing about it. It’s also highly functional: Smart Cover capabilities, stand options, access to all ports – everything is here.
