    Hello there
    It was with surprise and delight that I opened my birthday present yesterday morning to find a new iPad 2 and smart cover... I had wanted one for at least a year! Anyway about six hours later I had it sitting on the kitchen table resting on smart cover.... Anyway I picked it up with my ten month old daughter in my other arm! The rest is history ....it was like a slow playing car crash...I had to choose between my daughter and my new iPad....needless to say there was a smash.... Followed by a shreek of disbelief! Anyway I'm guessing this isn't covered by warranty??? The guy in the store told my husband that the smart cover can support the weight.... But he wouldn't advise it....I guess I should have listened more closely ,

    Sorry to hear but I would try to return the damaged iPad, I've heard a lot of people having some luck in having it replaced.

    sorry to hear about your bad luck and listening your story makes me happy I did an insurance for accidental damages like the one you had.

    I would have laughed my a** off if she chose the iPad, it would have been like a foreign advert!
