    My iPad 2 Case Round Up: which cases have smart magnetic covers?

    Lots of iPad case manufactures are coming out with their cases for the iPad 2. What I find shocking is that, so far, very very few of the available cases support any of the smart case technology!

    I do expect this to change, but frankly I find the fact that great case designers like:


    Fail to use magnets in their cover to turn the iPad on and off. Magnets could also be used to hold the iPad inside of cases more snugly. Even cheaper no-name cases like this one lack this obvious feature.

    I have pre-ordered a case from Grove, who say they will support the smart cover technology, but that's going to take months I think.

    Here are some other cases that use the smart cover technology:




    Do you know of others?

    What case are you using now?
    Would you buy a "non-smart" case in the future?

    I'm using the Targus VuScape cover and I like it. It covers the back and kindof latches over the front. Not magnetic but I like that the cover doesn't just swing open freely. The latch mechanism itself leaves a bit to be desired, it doesn't always stay shut but it is one of the best cases on the market at the moment, and reasonable at $40 from BestBuy.

    I have a Targus case for my iPad 1. They do make good cases. The iPad seems very safe inside of it.

    The octavo for iPad 2 made by pad and quill.

    I would tell you how it works but it looks like I will have my case before the pad.

    Has anyone seen any cases or shells that will work with the smart cover? I have only been able to come across one.

    I pre-ordered Grove as well. To my knowledge, they may begin taking orders, according to priority, within the next two weeks. I am anticipating receiving that case by Mayish.

    However, I'm looking for something casual and cheap to covert baby with when we go to school. I need serving with a stand because I'll be typing notes and what not. I just want something like 40 or less. I plan on buying a 2 year replacement warranty and not upgrading until it's out. Therefore, I do not mind spending money on multiple cases.

    Any cheaper ideas, not Targus or Belkin tho. Don't want the leather or black look. Something colorful.

    I too would love something to either add on or better than this crappy $40 polyurethane flap! Don't get me wrong now, I think it's a really cool concept, but I want protection for all sides. Seeming how much I paid for my 16gb 3G ipad2! Lol

    I think I'll wait and get one of those keyboard cases. They let you use the iPad like a laptop. Nice.
