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.

Ratings & Reviews
I got the red leather smart cover, firstly because I thought leather would last longer than the polyurethane and because I liked t he red color. In just over 6 months, the leather is splitting around the edge and it is so dirty and I don't seem to be able to clean it. Very, very, disappointed. …

I like how the smart cover itself works! Awesome! However, like others have said the leather cover is very hard to keep clean. Add itionally, it gets scratched easily. It can't take being in my purse, gym bag, etc. I've had mine since March 11 when the iPad 2 was released and it doesn't look so great. I paid more for this then the other covers because it was a (Product) Red, the color was unique and i thought it would be more durable because it is leather. I was wrong about the durability. I actually wasn't too upset about the scratches until I visited the website and was reminded of how expensive this thing was. I'd buy another smart cover but probably the less expensive one since I know what to expect. …

WORTH THE MONEY
I am very pleased with the (PRODUCT) RED Smart Cover. I have read other reviews for the leather smart covers that complain about retaining fingerprints, no such thing has happened with my use. I frequently use lotion and there has been no evidence of oil transfer. The case is holding up very well. I thought about getting other type covers but didn't want the bulk, this product keeps the slim design of the iPad and it is well worth the money. …

Not a good value
The Red leather is not a dark red as in the picture. The leather is extremely thin and does not clean well. It scratches easy and I am very careful with my iPad. In the future,
I will purchase something that covers the back of my iPad. This product does not. Overall, I would not pay $69 again for this product. It is not worth the money. …

Careful with scratches
I really loved my leather cover for the first months - great color, simple, well thought of objet, does what it should do. Yet, I' ve been annoyed by one thing that slowly became a problem : the suede surface on the inside, that becomes the outside once you open it, roll it up and use it as a stand. Things - dust, crumbs, whatever is on the surface you put it on - tend to cling to it, because it's suede, "hairy". It's difficult to remove little things that get stuck in there. Sure, you can clean the table/desk systematically before putting it on. But I use my ipad a lot, in numerous places. Things tend to get stuck in the suede, no matter how careful you are. And then what happens? They scratch the screen. Very fine surface scratches, sure, nothing overly dramatic, but it's really disapointing. I decided to get an Invisible Shield to protect it - which is a bit absurd : having to protect it from its protective cover... I recommend not taking the leather. The smooth surface of the other cases should avoid that problem. …
