[prMac.com] Sunnyvale, California - The KA-01 Origami Folio has added some color to its roster. IPEVO, a technology company which makes products and accessories for education, business and consumers, has increased to five the number of available colors for its KA-01 Origami Folio with Fold-Out Stand. These colors include Black, Azure, Lemongrass, Honeysuckle and Tangerine. This ultra-slim case for Apple's new iPad 3 as well as iPad 2 is available at a retail price of $39.00 and is sold exclusively through IPEVO's online store.
KA-01's original inspiration comes from origami, the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. The folio's cover can be pinched inward to form a triangular support which acts as a stand. Depending on orientation, the triangular support offers either a 20 or a 70 viewing angle. No buttons, Velcro, straps or similar devices are required for the stand, which can be folded into place in a couple of seconds.
The paper inspiration might also explain the fact that KA-01 is among the lightest and thinnest iPad cases on the market, at only 4 millimeters thick. Its ultra-slim profile is ideal for users who prefer a lighter and less bulky companion for their iPad which nonetheless still offers protection from scratches and daily wear and tear.
Both the iPad 3 and iPad 2 fit snugly into KA-01, and all ports and controls are accessible while the device is in the case. This includes both front and rear camera lenses, the charging port, speakers, and volume control. Also included with KA-01 are smart magnets which cause both models of iPad to enter Sleep Mode once the case is closed. This results in better power management and generally longer times between battery charges.
KA-01 is constructed with microfiber, which provides sturdy protection while being soft to the touch. This material is moisture-resistant as well as stain-resistant, including fingertip acid. In the event KA-01 is soiled, it can be spot cleaned.
"KA-01 is ultra-slim, which our customers had been asking for, but it is also functional," said Royce Hong, CEO and big head of design of IPEVO. "The fold-out stand is a fun and very easy solution to support the iPad at either a gentle slope or a more straight up-and-down angle. And the fact that a built-in stand comes with such a thin case is a welcome surprise to new users. With our complex new colors, we wanted to give users even more of an opportunity to express themselves with a folio that already makes a bold statement."
