iPad 2 Smart Cover is Brilliant!

by on 03/11/2011 in Gadgets, iPad 2

I know many new iPad 2 owners just love the new innovative Smart Cover for iPad. The Smart Cover protects the iPad 2 display very effectively and it looks really cool. The Smart Cover doesn’t add any bulk like some may expect.

The Smart Cover comes in one flexible sheet that measures (9.5-by-7.3-inch) and is only a mere 0.1 inches think. There are two types of construction – polyurethane or aniline-dyed Italian leather and both have a soft microfiber lining that lay’s against the iPad’s display.

iPad 2 Smart CoverIt gets even cooler! When you place the cover over the display the iPad automatically goes to sleep and when you lift the cover it wakes up the tablet. This feature can be turned off by going into the iPad setting menu, but I think it’s too cool to shut this feature off.

The Apple iPad Smart Cover is absolutely innovative and almost flawless in every way. Apple claims that the microfiber lining erases all finger prints magically. I would have to see this in order to believe such a claim. In the event it doesn’t have magical powers, you can get a cleaner for the display from your local Best Buy store. You can use LCD cleaner on the iPad display with causing harm.

I am very impressed with Apple’s iPad and being an avid PC guy, it’s hard not to make the switch to Apple products.

Today the iPad goes on sale and I am sure the lines are long, but well worth the wait. Did you get your new iPad 2 today?

    The iPhone is indeed an aspirational piece of equipment, but sadly too expensive to my taste.

      Its amazing…you could ditch your computer if you absolutely had to and survive on the iphone. I did it for about a month…you adapt pretty quick. Hard to find a computer for $300 bucks or so…well, plus the monthly data feed :)

        I am not sure about that. What about productivity suites? You can find a PC for $299 with a lot more power than a iPhone.

          Ya I guess it depends on what you are doing…if you have to do a bunch of spreadsheet/word processing stuff then it probably wouldn’t work.

          I wouldn’t want to do it for the long run, but you can definitely get by without a computer if you had to.

      Rocket Bunny,

      I wish I was 20, so that I can see the next 40 years of technology while still being young enough to understand and enjoy it.

    It’s crazy to think that just a few years ago the Ipod was coming out and everyone was making such a fuss out of it. Now look at us, we’ve got the Ipad. Crazy to think what’s going to happen after the Ipad or what it’s going to change into. Where do you go from here?

      Michael,

      Technology moves so fast that none us can guess the next wave of new things.

    So, it’s not about the gadget, but the accessories! Sometimes the accessories can cost as much as a real gadget…lol!
