When Apple held their official iPad 2 event earlier this month, it wasn’t just the next generation tablet that caught the eye of Apple fans. Not only did Steve Jobs officially unveil the iPad 2, he also introduced us to a new and innovative case called the Smart Cover.
We’ve already provided you with a brief video that shows the Smart Cover — which as Alan Ng previously noted comes in two different materials: leather or polyurethane — in action, and now we have a video review, courtesy of Sean P. Aune over at technobuffalow.com.
As the video notes, the leather Smart Cover will set you back $69, while the polyurethane case will cost you $39. The Smart Cover, which attaches to the iPad 2 via two small magnets, will automatically wake your tablet when the case is opened and resume sleep mode when closed.
Another great feature is the microfiber lining, which will clean your screen as you use it. Besides serving as a screen protector, the Smart Cover also serves as a stand. You can either prop the iPad 2 up to a typing position, or turn it round to a landscape position for watching movies etc.
Because it’s quick and easy to remove the Smart Cover, it allows users to change to a different color and material if they choose to. You can also view an iPad 2 unboxing video in a recent pcworld.com article by Edward N. Albro. You can read more about the Smart Cover at apple.com.
