Thin, minimal design.
The slim, yet sturdy Smart Cover protects your iPad screen without covering up its durable aluminum back. So your iPad still looks and feels like an iPad — just with a little extra protection.
An aluminum hinge magnetically aligns the Smart Cover with iPad for a perfect fit. While magnets inside help it stay put.
The Smart Cover does double duty as a keyboard stand. Fold it back to tilt iPad into a comfortable writing position.
The Smart Cover now comes in five more vibrant polyurethane colors with a soft, color-matched microfiber lining that keeps your display clean.
Wake on open. Sleep on close.
Open the Smart Cover, and iPad magically wakes up. Close it, and iPad automatically goes to sleep.
FaceTime and movie stand.
The Smart Cover folds in just the right places to become the perfect FaceTime and movie-watching stand.
Choose a beautiful, aniline-dyed Italian leather cover with a soft, color-matched microfiber lining that keeps your display clean.

Great cover - great design
After much research, I decided to purchase the black leather cover for my iPad 2.
+ look and feel of the leather is great
+ metal hing and magnet look great
+ magnetic attachment is great - easy to remove and re-attach
+ soft liner is great against the screen
- folds only in one direction (microfiber out)
Overall, I'd only remove less than one half of one star for it folding the the liner side out. Highly recommended if you need business black! …

The Smart Cover is a fairly standard concept, but when I had to choose, the black leather was best, because...
A: It isn't some ugly color.
B: It is flexible
C: Its kind of pretty.
However, my two problems with it, are...
A: The cover is easily scratched.
B: The inside becomes really dusty.
Overall, it's a good case, and thats why I'm typing on it now. :) …

iPad 2 Black Leather Smart Cover
Brilliant accessory for your iPad as it makes it even more magical to use. The automatic lift to unlock feature is brilliant as y ou don't have to slide to unlock once you have lifted the cover flap. the auto align feature ensures that every time you attach the smart cover it fits perfectly. The leather material is both soft and smooth and the black cover goes very well with both black and white iPad's. …

I love it...
I have an iPad 3 with the previous generation plug. I love to dock my mobile devices in the Apple docks (no longer made) when I g o to bed or when I'm syncing my devices. This way I can see the screen easily if I look from my bed. This cover either opens slightly so you can dock it with the cover on or you just pull it off and set it aside at night or when you're syncing and it's easy to attract back on. The leather is the quality choice in these covers and is felt on the screen side. I love the leather case. I will always go leather rather than plastic or faux leather. …
