Jotting down quick notes on a smartphone will do in a pinch – especially since it’s always handy – but it’s not nearly as intuitive or as practical as writing on real paper. DODOcase’s new DODOnotes offers a convenient (if slightly unconventional) solution by strapping your iPhone 4 or 5 (and soon Galaxy S3) to a notebook using an elastic plus a secure indented tray that nestles neatly around your phone. The notebook itself holds 30 tear-out sheets of Mohawk Superfine paper, sports an exterior bookcloth fabric, and comes in red, blue, or black.
