Oberon Design Siena case provides a classic look for your iPad (gallery)

Oberon Design makes some high end leather cases and their new Siena case provides a classic, traditional hardbound book look and feel to your iPad. I have been using a blue one for a few days and love the way it adds character to my iPad.

The Oberon Design Siena case comes in 13 available color schemes. As you can see, I have the black spine with sky blue one for evaluation.

The spine of the Siena case is one of the most distinctive features of the new case. The spine gives the case a look of older hand bound books.

Britannia pewter is used by Oberon Design and on the Siena case you can find it serving as the front securing clasp.

The three leather straps do a great job holding the iPad securely in place.

The small flap on the inside of the top cover is used to hold the long elastic bungee for landscape usage.

The long elastic bungee pulls out from under your iPad to hold your case in place.
