Back in May we told you about
the world's most expensive iPad, a ludicrous solid gold
version priced at $188,000. Now famed Italian luxury goods firm Tod's
is offering world's most expensive iPad
case, which in this case is actually in excellent taste. The luxurious case, finished in genuine alligator
, is priced at $4,900 - almost ten times the cost of Apple
's un-embellished 16GB iPad itself. The one-of-a-kind accessory is handmade in Italy
from the world's finest grade alligator skin, and will be available in brown, blue and tan from Tod's boutiques worldwide beginning in November. If that's a little too rich for your blood, there's also a version in buff colored calfskin for $495. Meanwhile Tod's has also launched its first iPad app, called My Life Is In This Bag.
The app allows users to enter and experience the world of Tod's and browse the brand's collections, and also showcases virtual themed lifestyles. The app reveals the contents of six stylish and sophisticated women's 'D' bags, the famed Tod's model favored by the likes of Nicole Kidman
, Jennifer Garner and Jessica Alba
. Along with snapshots of each bag's contents, users can journey into the different lifestyles and personalities, including that of sexy socialite Lauren Remington Platt
, and discover tips such as the most spectacular destinations around the globe with an insider's guide to art
and entertainment. See more images of the luxe cases and the app after the jump.
