While the original Apple iPad case didn’t win any design awards, the newest accessory from Apple might just turn heads, during the presentation of the new iPad 2 Apple introduced a new product called Smart Covers.
The case will come in five colors in both polyurethane and leather — the poly costing $39 and the leather $69. The cover is more like a cover flap that leaves the back of the iPad exposed. It’s held on by magnets, which are said to help auto-align the cover with the iPad. It has a microfiber lining that will clean the screen.
As we speculated in the past the cover will wake the iPad when you peel it back, and put it back to sleep when you close it.
