With the demand for iPad 2 growing by the minute, Apple’s very own Smart Cover has gained some buzz all over the world. Right now, the verdict is pretty mixed as some users like it (thanks to the magnet & auto wake/sleep function) while some hates it (no protection on the back).
For those pro-Smart Covers, we have come up with a list of iPad 2 cases (and skin) which works well and designed specifically for Apple’s second generation case.
As the name implies, XGear made this case to improve Apple’s Smart Cover by filling in the back of your iPad 2 with a snap-on cover. You can find more particulars on XGear’s official website though it is priced at $34.99 and will be available by 1st week of April.
If you are looking to complement the Smart Cover, then this slim polycarbonate shell from Marware is definitely worth a look. Never worry about scratches or bumps on the back of your tablet when you put this stylish case on. This elegant one-piece cover has a rubberized finish which you can snap easily on your iPad 2. You can pre-order now on their official website for $39.99.
The Joy Factory has come up with a super-thin design (0.9 mm) case which matches well with Apple’s new cover. It is durable and made from polycarbonate material for utmost protection. This snug fit case provides full access to all ports and buttons. You can place your order now on their official site for $29.95 and it will ship by mid-April.
Made from 100% authentic bamboo, this 0.25” thin skin can be customized, laser engraved or can be had in plain amber or natural bamboo. The surface is hand rubbed to enhance its natural look. It leaves no residue or sticky glue as it is backed with 3M adhesive. It is available on their homepage and price starts at $29 and usually dispatched within 2-3 weeks.
Though it is priced at $69, it offers more features and value. With this case, you can slid your wireless keyboard effortlessly into the main compartment.
