iPad 2 Smart Cover

This time around Apple, along with the release of an amazing product has also released a nice piece of accessory for the product. Yes, we are talking about iPad 2 and the [easyazon-link asin="B004QKJU56"]Smart Cover[/easyazon-link]. Is it really as smart as Apple claims it to be? Here is a small review looking into it. Both the positive and the negative points will be talked about.

The smart cover comes in two kinds of material, polyurethane and leather. It also comes in a decent variety of colors as shown in the ads.

Here are some positive points.

The smart cover is very slim and light. This makes the iPad 2 retain it’s slim and sleek look when the smart cover is put on it.

The material used, especially the leather used is of good quality and has a nice feel to it.

The Smart cover also gives you a good grip on your iPad 2.

The magnets on both the smart cover and iPad 2 seem to be made for each other. The smart cover attaches itself to the iPad 2 as soon as they are brought close to each other.

Another amazing ability of the smart cover which is also one of the feature which makes it smart is it’s ability to lock or unlock the iPad as the cover is put on or taken off. This simple ability of the cover makes a lot of difference and is also my favorite feature.

The other nice feature of the smart cover is the many smart ways in which it folds itself. It can be folded half way around or it can be folded to become a nice stand for the iPad, keeping it standing at that perfect angle which makes typing on the iPad effortless.

And now, the negative points.

The negative points are indeed very few. The fact that Smart Cover is just a cover and not a case is in itself a minor let down. Also the smart cover is not much of a protection if your iPad falls down. It mostly protects the screen from scratches and spills and nothing much.

Overall, I still feel [easyazon-link asin="B004QKJU56"]Smart Cover[/easyazon-link] is something to have with your iPad 2.
