The dark gray polyurethane iPad Smart Cover for the iPad 2 and new iPad from Apple is an ingenious accessory that all iPad 2 and new iPad owners should own. This clever cover not only provides a way to protect the screen of your iPad 2 and new iPad, but greatly expands its use. First of all, even under the best of conditions, dirt, dust and other contaminants can subvert any viewing surface. The Smart Cover will protect your screen and keep it in first-rate viewing condition as well as help prevent any nasty scratches.

The Smart Cover is held tightly in place by the built-in magnets in the iPad 2 and new iPad's frame - magnets that align perfectly with the matching Smart Cover hinge for an effortless fit. When you don't want to use the Smart Cover, just fold it out of the way like a page from a magazine - or simply remove it entirely. However, it doesn't stop there as the Smart Cover will also wake your iPad 2 and new iPad from Sleep Mode - a real time and energy saving benefit. In addition, you can fold this cover into various formats that will make your iPad 2 and new iPad even more user-friendly. It can rapidly be configured into a handy typing stand for a more enjoyable position for your hands.

For added convenience, it can be converted into a neat little stand that the iPad 2 and new iPad can lean against for a far more comfortable reading position. Or if you desire, it can provide a "hands-free" upright position for your iPad 2 and new iPad during video calling. In either configuration, this will leave you free to take notes or "hand talk". Finally, if you want to shoot some HD video on the fly, this amazing Smart Cover folds in half to expose the back-facing camera of the iPad 2 and new iPad.

At an affordable price, the Apple Smart Cover will add even more flexibility to your already multi-functional iPad 2 and new iPad. The Smart Cover is available in a wide variety of colors to suit your preference and taste as well as in either a leather or polyurethane finish.

    Keeps the screen protected with one flaw

    The smart cover is made by Apple and is designed to attach magnetically to the left side of the ipad and the front flap covers the screen. It is extremely handy because it can fold into a triangle that allow you to set it in different positions: for typing, viewing, or as a photoframe.

    Here comes the flaw I found with this cover. The microfiber side directly touches the screen, and when you fold it into a triangle, the microfiber side is now external. This causes a few issues. When you lay it on any surface, it will eventually get dirty and transfer it to your screen. My advice would be to lay it on a clean surface that is not full of dust or particles. Or you can try cleaning the microfiber side with a vacuum with a hose attach or give the microfiber side a good slap with your hand to release the trapped dirt.

    It is too basic. All it does is cover the screen and provides only a slight upward tilt to the screen if using it on the top of a desk or table. The tablet has a very slippery back and is a bit heavy so the user needs a good grip to keep it from slipping out of her hands.
    Competitive iPad covers envelop the entire tablet and provide for an upright position on a table top for normal screen viewing or when using it with a wireless paired keyboard.
    I am going to shop around for a better cover.

    Nice cover

    Comments about iPad Smart Cover for the iPad 2 and new iPad (Polyurethane, Blue):

    Wish I had bought this sooner. I really like the slim design, auto on & off feature and angle options. Had a book style case before which I really liked, but it added too much bulk and weight to an already heavy ipad.

                          The only downside to this cover is that now I hate all other tablet covers. So easy to remove, wakes up the screen, doubles as a stand in two positions and I use mine to clean the finger prints off the screen. Wish I could get a smart cover for the Nexus 7.

                                      Expensive, but durable and works really well with an iPad. You get what you pay for.

                                            Its a decent cover - but it doesnt cover all sides of the product.

                                                  The new smart cover has a slightly different color from the first version. The inside (the part that lays against the screen) has the same soft feel, but is from a different material, and is no longer gray.

                                                  The color difference threw me off at first (I prefer the first gen color green), but the functionality (it's a cover and a stand) has not been impaired.

                                                  All in all a good product for the iPad that doesn't cover it up, except to protect the most essential part—the screen.
