Hermes iPad 2 cases cost more than the iPads

Would you consider paying a heart-stopping $1,400 for an iPad case? Well, OK, but it is leather.

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.
