    This case looks amazing!

    Miniot Wooden iPad 2 Cover Is Gorgeous

    has all the functionality of a smart cover

    (my only concern is that it looks wobbly when used as a stand)

    but read the article, watch the video - it's incredible!

    Yeah. I'm definitely returning my smart cover. I'm not sure I'll buy the Minot cover(70$). But something similar. When I use my iPad at my desk I just don't think that the smart cover raises it enough for me. Would like to buy something that raises it a bit more.

    I fold the smart cover in half, flat behind the iPad when reading. This cover doesn't appear to fold In half flat, and it puts hard wood against metal when flipped behind. Certainly would require a cover on the back to prevent wear.

    Good point!

    Although I don't think I will get this or the Smart Cover.
    Instead I will get one of the folio cases (but one with a small pockets for a camera connector kit and a few 32GB SD Cards so I can put films on them)

    miniot cover

    I watched the video clip. looks great. only one question... what does the right hand edge of the cover fit into to keep it from slipping. Being a circle form, if the edge slips so does the support. Not so with Apples triangular shape. This is less of a problem in the landscape orientation for watching movie, vs the lower position wherein pressure on the virtual keyboard might cause it to slip. The only way to know is test it. Weight could be more ... Does look nice ... clever idea ...$70 too much for my budget, but your choice.

    So I just got the iPad 2. Would you have to jailbreak the iPad 2 to view movies stored on the sd card? Or along as it's in mp4 format it will pay from sd card? Also when converting movies which format should be the final product so you could play it on the iPad? And one last question. Any good programs you recommend to do this?

    oh yeah forgot to ad - depends if you are using Mac or Windows. On my mac I convert to itunes format by using Any Video Converter Pro - not sure what the EXACT format for itunes HD is but you can just click on the iPad to convert to iPad :)


    If they are in a quicktime format they can be stored on an SD card although without Jailbreaking the iPad you can only copy the files instead of just viewing them (I would find that pointless personally!)

    but If you jailbreak it then install iFile you can view the files
    you can view them even if they arent in a quicktime format by using something like CineXPlayer/OPlayer

    Currently there is no JB for iOS 4.3 for iPad 2 (they are saving the JB for iOS 4.3.1 which is due to be released in a couple of weeks)

    Just so you know, I meant it in a jokey/sarcastic way - didn't mean it in a vulgar way (I actually quite like the smart cover!)

    Huh? What did I do wrong? I started the thread. I noticed the title was changed. Did I have a freudan slip or something?

    Really just a great design.
