I am awed by it and think it will look amazing with my black iPad 2. I have the black leather Smart Cover and love it. Life is too short and therefore must have it. Wondering about the so called "bleeding color" and "easily stained" stories. I recognize it is leather, can stain, age, scratch and so forth. To me, that is all a neat part of a natural material and goes with the territory, with time. I just don't want it to have it look like crap overnight for $69.
