Mohawk develops notebook paper base for smart phones as it ‘rides’ digital wave

May 16, 2013 - 10:46

ALBANY, NY, May 16, 2013 (Local News) -The newest case for Apple's iPhone comes from the combination of a San Francisco startup and a paper mill in upstate New York.

The base of the newest DODOcase, released Thursday, is 30 pages of notebook paper from Mohawk, a Cohoes paper company that is anything but extinct. An elastic strap holds the iPhone in place. A version for the Samsung Galaxy S3 is coming soon.

It is the latest sign of the full-on digital revolution going on at Mohawk (a paper mill that dropped the words "Fine Papers" from its name last year).
