If someone told you they’d just bought a Filofax, you’d probably picture a leather binder full of notepaper and diary pages. But the brand has quietly expanded from personal organisers into the world of tech, and today they announced that they’ve just launched “the world’s largest collection of tablet cases.”
I’m not sure if there are Guinness records for tech accessories, but Filofax reckon as far as the number of design options goes, they have the biggest selection. They’ve put the claim all over their website, so presumably they’ve done their research.
If we asked 100 people which brands could theoretically make that claim, we’re pretty sure Filofax would not have made the list. But then they’d all have lost the Big Money bonus.
While there are indeed many, many designs, it’s worth noting that Filofax only covers the Big Two tablet brands: Samsung and Apple. Cases are available for the iPad Pro 12.9 and 9.7; iPad Air; iPad Air 2; iPad 2, 3 and 4 and the iPad Mini 1, 2, 3 and 4 on the Apple side. For Samsung, they offer the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 and 8.0; Tab S 10.5 and 8.4; Tab Pro 10.1 and 8.4; Galaxy Note 10.1; and Galaxy Tab 3 & 4 10.1 and 8.0.
Across all those models, the total range comes out to more than 600 options. This is why it’s tricky getting accessories for anything other than the big brands!
The cases come with phone and pen/stylus pockets, and can hold paper as well as pixels. Price-wise, unsurprisingly it varies a lot but the majority are in the £35-£45 area.
As the proud owner of a red patent Filofax organiser with actual paper and no tech at all, these are right up my alley. If you feel the same, you’ll find the whole (massive) range on the Filofax website.
