One of the surest signs that an electronic product is successfully moving into the lifestyle of the rich and famous is that high-fashion brands start making accessories for it. The luxury leather-maker from Paris, Hermes, has launched two iPad 2 cases, which are more expensive than an actual iPad 2. The Hermes Swift, a sleeve type case for the second generation Apple iPad, is made in calf skin leather and available in 10 colours with a price tag of about $820.
The Hermes Station is a book-style cover, made from the same material as the Swift, that doubles as a stand. Available in a range of four colors, the Station retails at a heart-stopping $1,400.
The two cases are available from Hermes stores and, we suspect, are easier to get than the tablet itself.
