You may have already seen the Smart Cover for the iPad 2 and the new iPad. While extremely intelligent, it’s biggest flaw was that it only covered the display on the front while leaving the back open for scratches.
Apple has now announced the new iPad Smart Case that not just covers the display but also the back. It behaves similar to the Smart Cover, where the top folds back and forms a stand to place the iPad in various positions. It also has the magnets that make the iPad automatically go to sleep when you place the cover over the display. But the new part is a complete coating for the back that ensures full protection for your iPad 2 or the new iPad.
The iPad Smart Case is made out of polyurethane and is available in six colors. If you order it online from the Apple Store, you also get the option to get it engraved. The iPad Smart Case is priced at $49.00 and is now available on the Apple Store.
