iPad Smart Case 2

Here’s a lovely little fella that didn’t manage to get a mention at Apple’s WWDC 2012 keynote event yesterday. It’s the brand new iPad Smart Case, released yesterday by Apple with little or no fanfare.

It builds on the existing Apple iPad Smart Cover and adds some features that many users have been looking for and using other 3rd party cases for. Here are some of its main features:

— Automatic Sleep/Wake Feature – just like the smart cover, the iPad Smart Case automatically sleeps and wakes the iPad.

— Full coverage. Now the back and sides of the iPad are protected as well.

— Like Apple’s case for the original iPad, this one serves as a stand too – in viewing and typing positions.

It comes in a range of six colors and I polyurethane only (no leather version like the smart cover) – and is priced at $49. You can see details and place an order at Apple’s online store page for the iPad Smart Case or look for one in your  local Apple store.

I picked one up at an Apple Store this morning and I’ll post some first impressions on it very soon.

    1. Yikes – sorry to hear that. I’ve always liked using just as ultra-thin skin on the back of the iPad to avoid that sort of thing.
