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. French luxury brand Hermes is cashing in on the popularity of the iPad 2 with cases that cost more than the tablet itself.
The Hermes Swift (left) is a slipcase made from calfskin leather that costs a whopping $820. It comes in 10 different colors. The Hermes Station (right) is a book-style cover, made from the same material as the Swift, that doubles as a stand. Available in four colors, the Hermes 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.
