    iPad 2 Smart Cover Review And Overview

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4IS3JZu0tA[/ame]

    With the release of the iPad 2, Apple decided to go with their new tradition and add a little extra protection to our new tablets. Like they did with the iPhone 4 and the Bumpers, Apple released the Smart Covers to protect the from of your iPad 2. These are either made out of Polyurethane or Leather, but you're going to have to dish out a bit more cash for the leather. The outside of the cover is smooth and feels nice while the inside is like a microfiber cloth. With this you can clean your iPad 2 screen if you ever get any fingerprints on in, we know you will. The smart cover can act as a stand/dock, as well as a heel for your tablet while you're typing, pretty neat. You can pick one of these up in many colors starting at $39.

    I ordered a 'red' leather smart cover to go with my 'white' IPad 32gb wifi unit. I noticed that the 'red' leather smart covers went into the 2-3 week wait and then into the 3-4 week wait status on Apple.com before any of the other covers did.

    I predict that the Red and White combination is going to be popular here in Indonesia too (Indonesian Flag)

    I really like the Smart Covers, and am trying to decide between black, tan, or navy.

    My wife wants pink.

    Good thing they are interchangeable!

    I bought the first gen iPad on release day and got the black Apple protector with it. I found a thin microfiber cloth that fit the screen size and just kept it under the folded lid. It was great for quick screen cleaning but I always had to keep tabs on it. When I bought the iPad 2 on release day I sprung for the dark blue leather smart cover and kept the original microfiber towel under the cover. The smart cover magnet was barely strong enough to stay closed with the cloth underneath.

    The first time I tried to use the microfiber that came on the bottom side of the smart cover, the iPad 2 kept going to sleep and waking up as I tried to wipe the screen and it didn't do a very good job. I found folding the smart cover into a triangle and then wiping the screen to work a little better. I haven't decided if I want to get rid of the original microfiber towel just yet. I imagine after a while the smart cover microfiber would get dirty.

    I'm noticing 3 faint horizontal stripes across the face of the display apparently from the hinge lines of the smart cover. They do seem to wipe off, but I wonder about the long term effects.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Is a microfiber cloth the best way to clean the screen?
