Apple Designed iPad 2 Magnetic Cover
During the Apple iPad event this afternoon (here in the Midwest), Apple featured their iPad 2 magnetic cover. This iPad 2 accessory was promoted much more that any iPhone or iPod case made by Apple in the past. This case is specificaly designed with the magnetics built into the iPad 2 (I wonder if iPad case competitors were tipped on this) to enable an interesting way to protect your investment. I have used an iPad case for the majority of my experiences with my iPad, and having a cover will likely eliminate the need (at least for me) for an iPad 2 DODOcase.
Non-Apple accessory makers are likely scrambling to develop a case to take advantage of the iPad 2 bezel magnets, and were likely not in the loop on this enhancement. Even a simple case like the DODOCase or Powis iCase could merely add a slim magnet to the edge of the book flap to take advantage of the new iPad 2 capabilities.
I am personally going to order an iPad 2 on March 11th along with an Orange magnetic cover...I may also pick up a leather cover and the HDMI-out, but am still on the fence for those.
Cool part is the iPad will automatically "wake up" when the cover is lifted!
