Of all those iPad 2 or New iPad 3/4 owners who might enjoy the Moshi Concerti folio case, none will appreciate it more than the left-handed. Why? The Concerti appears to be something of a standout in the tablet case universe, with its reverse design that opens left to right. Though the case feels a bit floppy, Moshi has still managed to get the most of the folio-style format in terms of functionality.
A best case scenario for lefties? The Moshi Concerti folio case may be just that for these iPad users and in general makes a pretty good accessory for all users – at least for a decent amount of time. The exterior of the Moshi Concerti folio is done up in soft microfiber that looks and feels like suede. A tough, thick elastic band serves as the lock and seals this case notably tightly. Perhaps a bit too tight, as the cover does warp a bit which in turn sometimes fails to put the iPad to sleep. A little extra material pads the spine of the folio, but otherwise the Concerti is very thin with minimal protection provided. On the plus side, this case’s weight is just 200 grams (7 ounces), making it a dream to carry in a tablet bag or carrier. Opening the Moshi Concerti (from left to right, remember! ) reveals a fairly typical folio case interior, though well equipped with handy functions. A silicon rubber frame on the left-hand side holds the iPad Mini in place with access to all buttons, ports, etc., provided. A magnet is embedded on the inside cover to activate the sleep/wake function and an integrated foldout stand gives two viewing angles in landscape mode. The bonus function in the Concerti is the built-in hand strap, which allows for a more comfortable hold of the iPad. But that old bugaboo – the thinness of material in this folio tablet case – arises again. When using the hand strap, the user may find that the tablet's weight causes the Concerti to become a bit floppy.
- Nice suede-feeling microfiber exterior
- Very good lock and display hand strap
- A design for lefties!
It’s all about the plusses and minuses in the Moshi Concerti iPad folio case. Pros include the left-handed design, good strong locks and sturdy hand strap. List among the cons the lack of protection and the warp-able material. In the end, those iPad users in need of a decent quick-fit folio solution may certainly consider the Concerti a best case scenario.
