Folio Digital - Combining digital devices and paper pages in a new analog-digital portable workstation

Moleskine is pleased to announce two new digital cover sets for smart phones and tablets, compatible with iPhone™ and iPad™. This adds to the existing e-Reader Cover (Kindle compatible) to create the Folio Digital Collection.
All pieces in the Folio Digital Collection are designed to seamlessly combine paper pages and digital devices.

Tablet Cover
Black tablet case compatible with iPad, featuring Moleskine classic smooth cover, rounded corners and elastic closure. A contrasting padded suede lining interior surrounds the tablet protecting it against impact and scratches, still providing the best flexibility. Inside a tablet frame with black leather details, and a reporter-style Volant notebook with 96 plain pages and a soft cover that flips open at the top.

Smartphone Cover
Smartphone case is designed to combine analog and digital devices, complementing paper, voice, and internet, for a compact portable workstation. It features Moleskine classic smooth black cover, rounded corners and elastic closure. A contrasting padded suede interior surrounds the smartphone protecting against impact and scratches, still providing the best flexibility. Inside, a black leather frame holds the smartphone, while a suede pocket contains a 56-pages Volant extra small plain notebook. Bluetooth headphones use is recommended. Compatible for iPhone 3G and 3GS.

A new step in analog digital continuum.
Moleskine notebooks are the heirs of the pocket size black notebooks used by avant garde creators of the past two centuries who sought portable and convenient tools for writing, sketching and painting from life in the streets and in the cafés and in other extemporary situations. Proud of this heritage, Moleskine likes playing with the analog digital continuum. The long debated issue about digital tools possibly overcoming analog ones is far away from being resolved. Everyone has their own answers, often shared with others over the internet. Many Moleskine users feel completely comfortable using both analog and digital devises, if not merging them together in new hybrids. New experiments in this direction are to be announced in the near future.

Available in October 2010 in online stores worldwide and selected bookshops worldwide.
