Apple Smart Cover for iPad 2

Apple's iPad 2 Smart Cover easily attaches and detaches from the iPad thanks to built-in magnets. When attached the Smart Cover has a thin profile that protects the iPad 2 glass screen surface. A microfiber lining helps clean fingerprints and dust when in transit.

Folding the Smart Cover results in two different configurations that make a typing or viewing stand. This accessory can also be folded completely out of the way behind the iPad 2 like a book cover. When the back camera is needed, no need to remove the Smart Cover. It can be folded in half to expose the camera lens.

The iPad 2 was designed for perfect integration with the Smart Cover. Opening the cover will wake up the iPad 2, and covering the screen puts the device to sleep automatically. The Smart Cover will run $39 for polyurethane and $59 in aniline-dyed Italian leather. Each material comes in five different colors.



A little bummed out. I have to be honest. I ordered the cover because it looked cool. But that coolness wears off, when the fallacy of protection and false assurance kicks in. Protection is limited to cosmetic scuffs and annoying fingerprints. But not drops. Not sure that the cover is any better, much less smarter. It does not offer much in protection. I was skeptical about the cover to begin with. Nevertheless, if your looking to protect your investment with a simple cover, we run the risk of inflicting some damage from a simple accident. I had to reassess my needs after a near fatal drop with the cover. I ordered a few days ago a leather Mivizu iPad 2 case called the Sense, and I also ordered an Otterbox hardshell. Best, the Mivizu folio is affordable priced at $26.99 against appleā€™s not smart price of $69.99
Anyways, for real protection look elsewhere.
