I have made a few comments already about the iPad 2’s new and innovative Smart Cover announced this morning at the Apple Media Event. I will be the first to admit that this is very innovative case and the magnet idea is very clever. Adding microfiber to the screen side of the Smart Cover to keep the iPad 2 finger print free is also very smart. Another very cool feature is that the Smart Cover will put the iPad 2 to sleep when “covered” and then wake the device up when “uncovered”. Landscape and Portrait kickstands are an added bonus and this case has become very functional indeed. Priced at $39 for the polyurethane version and $69 for the leather version, there are lots of colors to choose from. But am I the only one that needs to have his device completely covered? I know Apple didn’t want to cover what they are calling a very innovative design, but I am for keeping my very innovated designed iPad 2 scratch free. Someone send out the bat signal to OtterBox.
