    Do you think Apple will offer a magnetic Smart Cover for iPad 3?

    I think so. It was a big seller. My wife loves hers. It would be nice if the same cover fit both the 2 & 3.

    lol it would be dumb not to.
    companies make more money on accessories than on anything else. That $69 cover you are buying costs the apple stores less than $5. You can have them shipped from chinese websites like dealextreme for $14 including shipping charges.


    Its the same with all accessories, When I worked at best buy the $60 Monster video cables were like $4 with employee discount witch is 10% above cost. Those heavy duty $100 metal DVD cases were about $9. $40 Network cables are under $5. Yet the items like iPods and iPhones they only make a few bucks on (apple still profits)

    I think they will consider smart cover. It look cool, but users who had smart cover for longer time had some serious complains.
    They will make some new type of cover/thin case or improve smart cover.

    I got a full leather smart cover for less than Apple's plastic'y front cover...better protection for the unit and better looking IMO. Ordered 3rd party online.
