Personal mobile devices of today are a unique combination of style and substance. The expensive range of i-devices from Apple sport ornamental customisations to go with specially designed accessories that simply add a touch of glamour to the already sleek devices. The iPad is one such popular device that has been really spruced up in recent times to cater to the classic tastes of the rich and creamy layer of society. Have money? – Do not hesitate to flaunt it on a custom iPad or its accessories, be it for personal use or an impressive gift. Here is a selection of the most extravagant iPad variants and accessories that may just be a perfect class and style symbol.
Strut Launch Port Line
This neat ensemble of a wireless pedestal and an exquisitely hand-crafted iPad case has a universal appeal. The neodymium magnets on the reverse of the case snap on to the wireless dock, automatically triggering an inductive charging system that powers the device. The pedestal offers different viewing angles, while the case is fitted with an audio waveguide system to channel sound from the speakers forward. Priced at £880, the Strut LaunchPort Line will be available this September with a choice of standard designer finishes, such as sparkle pink, leopard print, walnut burl, carbon fibre and select custom finishes.
iPad Case by Dolce and Gabbana
An ubercool fashion statement for women who breathe style, this iPad case made of black leather with generous embellishments of gold hardware and a star chain strap, doubles up as a spacious handbag. One among the expensive iPad cases, this one made in Italy is priced at £740.
iPad Case by David August
If the D&G case was not classy or pricey enough, then the iPad case from the Cosa Mesa boutique brand, designed by David August, may well please the style and budget of those lounging in wealth. Part of a larger exotic leather collection, this £4,350 iPad cover comes with a range personalisation options to suit preferences of the buyer.
Alligator skin iPad case from Tod’s
Another tempting accessory on this list would be the £3,100 alligator skin iPad case from Tod, priced almost 10 times that of the 16 GB basic iPad. Available in brown, tan and blue shades, the cases are hand-made in Italy. A less pricey calfskin variant is also available at £310.
Swaovski Crystal Covers
Simply stylish and sophisticated in their looks, crystal black covers neatly accentuate the sleek iPhones and iPads from Apple. This crystallised range of covers from Swarovski is more of a visual extravagance. Classic docking systems such as TonSchreine, AeroPad Two at approximately £580, twice as much as a basic iPad version and Phonofone III, are also equally extravagant choices.
Several versions of customised Gold iPad variants have become increasingly popular. The exclusive iPad edition from Camael, made of solid gold, is available for a handsome sum of £93,150 and can also be embellished with gems of choice.
The iPad2 Gold History Edition by Stuart Hughes, priced above the £5 million mark, is a collector’s pick with just 2 pieces being created. A rich history indeed, especially when the device sports a 24ct gold back, a diamond Apple (12.5cts ) logo comprising 53 white flawless diamonds, a front frame coated with a Canadian Ammolite layer spruced with flakes of T-Rex thighbone, and the precious home button-studded with 8.5ct flawless diamond in platinum setting, and bounded by 12 smaller diamonds.
We are talking extravagant iPad customisations and accessories over here. However, for a real taste of luxury, why not check out the multiple concept versions of a £3.8 million Gulfstream G550 Private Jet makeover or the Adastra catamaran superyacht that can be controlled using an iPad?
