In order to keep the cool factor alive for the BlackBerry PlayBook® tablet computer, BlackBerry contacted a slew of designers excelling in the field of inspirational design to lend a hand in creating some quality cases for their product. Among others to be chosen, was Canada’s own WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie designs. The company ended up creating two sleek cases — the Bishop Portfolio for Playbook® and the Cartier Sleeve for Playbook®. In addition to being made from natural grain first-grade calf leather, both items feature functional designs that are geared for customers looking for a minimalist approach to the tablet case. They both retail seperately for $265.
