What’s the Fuss Over IPad 2 Cases?

Apple calls it the “Smart Cover” as any other company does on a product that seems to function beyond imagination.

The world’s most coveted tech company has recently rolled out ad hoc the iPad 2 cases for iPad 2 alone. The Smart Cover has built-in magnets that draw the gadget for protection. Not only that, the iPad 2 cases also wake up, stand up, and brighten up the iPad 2.

The Smart Cover protects the iPad screen without covering up its durable aluminum back, making the gadget look and feel like an iPad still, but “with a little extra protection.”

“Even better, the Smart Cover doubles as the perfect movie-watching, game-playing, web-surfing, do-it-all companion,” Apple stated.

Smart Cover folds in “all the right places”, which create a stand that holds iPad upright for hands-free video calling — or watching by leaning the iPad against the Smart Cover.

The folding could also be done in a way that lets users tilt iPad into a comfortable typing position. Its magnetic hinge holds iPad in place so users can type quickly and comfortably.

Apple added: “If you prefer to hold iPad, the Smart Cover flips back and out of the way like a page in a magazine. And if you want to shoot some HD video on the fly, the Smart Cover folds in half to expose the back-facing camera. Now that’s something to smile about.

“When the Smart Cover and iPad get together, you can’t help but notice an instant connection. That’s because we designed iPad to work with the Smart Cover — and the other way around.

“For starters, iPad has magnets built right into its frame — magnets that align perfectly with the Smart Cover hinge for an effortless fit. On the opposite side, magnets inside the Smart Cover help it stay put. It’s ingenious yet simple. Secure yet easy to remove. In fact, the Smart Cover and iPad work so well together, it’s easy to think of them as one device.”

What’s more, the Smart Cover turns the iPad 2 into a sleep mode when it closes, and resumes the gadget when it opens without pressing any button.

The iPad 2 cases are available in ten bright colors — five in rich, aniline-dyed Italian leather.
