As well as announcing the new iPad 2 Apple also announced a new iPad 2 accessory, called Smart Covers. The Smart Covers clip onto the side of the iPad 2 to form a protective case for the iPad 2’s display.
The Smart Cover features built in magnets, which connect to built in magnets in the iPad 2 casing, and they snap together, and line up by themselves.
The Smart Cover and iPad 2 were made for each other. Literally. Built-in magnets draw the Smart Cover to iPad for a perfect fit that not only protects, but also wakes up, stands up and brightens up your iPad. That’s not just smart. It’s genius.
The Smart covers will be available in a wide range of colors, and will come in polyurethane and leather, and they can also be used as a stand to view your iPad in a range of different ways.
