    Stealth is right of course, the hinges attach to the iPad 2 magnetically.

    yea thats an intense price to have multiple colors, but that is so cool that it goes to sleep or unlocks. More add to the list activator
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

    Meh.... waste of 39 dollars IMHO. Much better cases around that ACTUALLY provide protection for your iPad.

    Why wouldn't it? It sticks to the side of the iPad and if far enough away to use a protective film.

    So let me get this right dose it not protect the whole unit?

    I wish I had a miniature elephant that fit in the palm of my hand. I would pick him up and he'd lift up his trunk and stand on his back legs and say PRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPHHHHHHHH and I would say yes little elephant i love you too.

    The only thing I don't like is there is no protection for the back of it...

    I actually like this thing. I wouldnt want a case for my iPad so this is perfect and awesome but $39 seems a little too much for something this simple. I think third party companies are going to make cooler looking ones for cheaper prices with the same technology so I would wait.

    Brilliant scheme to sell Apple brand iPad 2 covers as opposed to 3rd party stuff, and we know what Steve thinks of 3rd party stuff!!

    It might slide around on that ridge a little.

    Wonder if this will work with the original iPad? I don't see why not unless the magnetic part won't work....

    I agree that it's overpriced. But what "doesn't" seem that way about Apple products when they're first released? and I wonder how long after launch date that 3rd parties will be selling these types of covers for around $5. I'm not big into 3rd party stuff for apple products (especially not chargers or cables), but when it comes to something simplistic like screen protectors or cases..... I'm /all/ for it!!

    I'm not even the slightest bit of knowing what type of technology is used to have it power on/off with that cover. I am however VERY excited about it. Just wondering if perhaps A future Cydia tweak could allow my now "old school" iPad to do such a thing...... I myself am pleased with the new features of the iPad 2.
