    Apple's Smart cover for iPad2?

    Having read lots of opinions, reactions, and frustrations with Apple's Smart Cover. Is it just possible Apple had some specific intentions only?

    Apple wanted the following:
    1. a thin protective cover over the display with EZ on/Off... this feature is so very nice.
    2. Could provide support of the edge for EZr typing (15 degree angle)
    3. Landscape support for hands free vertical support (105 degrees) for watching movies, or viewing photos. etc.
    4. Thin and light weight in keeping with the 33% thinner and 15% less weight of iPad2
    5. Strong magnets on the cover will support the weight of the iPAD2 on refrigerator, for example.

    Owners of course want more just in case of accident drops, scratching and abrasions of the bottom.

    I think you're johnny on the spot. Apple wanted a functional cover that they could show off at keynotes. It's cool, it's new (even if it has problems) They figure that third party devs will (and are) making cases similar to the iPad 1. I'm disappointed they didn't offer an additional, alternative case similar to the v1 case, alongside the smartcover. (obviously it would have to fit the 1/3 thickness reduction, but they could have easily done it.)

    The reviews weren't very good.

    You've missed my point. To me, the smartcover, at its price, is poor value for money; the fact that it's manufactured cheaply overseas exacerbates it. I'm sure many owners who have simple requirements for a protective case love it and don't mind the price, but there are also other case designers coming out with I think will be better value in terms of cost, design and functionality.

    Seriously! Really! Glue magnets to the side of a 829.00 device. Then chisel and tap lightly with a hammer! Either buy iPad2 or be happy with the still great ipad1. At this point I don't know of a whole lot that can be done with 2 that can't be done with 1. IPad1 has some really cool cases. It is what it is dude. This sounds like an ideal my 14 year old son might have.
