Apple Announces iPad 2 “Smart Cover”

The Smart Cover and iPad 2 were made for each other. Literally. Built-in magnets draw the Smart Cover to iPad for a perfect fit that not only protects, but also wakes up, stands up, and brightens up your iPad. That’s not just smart. It’s genius.

The Smart Cover can be used as a FaceTime or keyboard stand, and is available in both polyurethane ($39) and leather ($69). It has a built-in microfiber liner which cleans the screen while protecting it, and is available in 10 different colors. The integrated magnets wake the iPad automagically, much like the BlackBerry hip-holster.

Check out an interactive demo of the Smart Cover at Apple.
