Over the years there's been an unhealthy ethos surrounding cases for tech which is that design hasn't always been at the forefront. We think that should change, as products such as the Apple iPad 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab have shown, tech can be both beautiful and brilliant. So why shouldn't their cases? We've already counted down the best Apple iPhone 4 cases, now it's time to look at the higher end of the market. Here's the most luxurious cases for your beloved gadgetry...
Out Of Print
T-shirt designer and literature fan Out Of Print has collaborated with Speck to produce a range of book-inspired covers for the iPhone 4, including the Lolita case, which is not suitable for Fathers' Day.
Ettinger Fashion Case
Prestigious British brand Ettinger has produced this exquisite, red leather envelope that comes with a couple of extra slots for all your business whatnots.
Jivo Executive Zipper
Only the finest Brazilian buffalo skin has been used to create this snug-fitting cover. A non-abrasive interior swaddles your precious MacBook Air from all that rough cow hide.
The legendary German – no, not French – pen maker has crafted a suitably minimal case for your iPad. The pouch is made from full-grain German leather for a super-smooth finish.
