New Release IPad 2 – Inside Look On IPad 2 Cases And Covers
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Apple have finally launched there second generation iPad and it quickly became apparent that it followed firmly in the footsteps of its older brother. Most wouldn’t notice the subtle differences, 33% thinner and a touch smaller in length and width is the most noticeable, whilst increased relative screen size and improved battery life is a little harder to notice. All in all Apple have just upgraded the iPad, making it just that little bit better than the first generation, its quicker and can do more tasks. If you have bought your iPad 2 then congratulations, you are the proud owner of what is undoubtedly still the best tablet on the market and if you haven’t, follow the link at the bottom and snap one up, because they are going fast.

This brings us on to more pressing matters now you have purchased your much coveted tablet. How to keep it safe? Because this marvel of technology does not respond well to being dropped or bounced around, which is sure to happen at one point. The screen is glass, and is easily scratched or scuffed, let alone broken.

We have done some research on the consumer’s behalf and had a look into the best available products on the market. There are two main contenders in terms of product innovation and usability here. Apples own Smart Cover brand is quite exceptional and Proporta has a range of functional and usable covers to suite even the most discerning iPad owner.

Smart-Covers are a quite excellent bit of innovation, with inbuilt magnetic strips and magnetic clips, designed by apple to be one with your iPad 2 and maintain the sleek and slender design of your iPad 2. It simply clips on when held near to the tablet, and then you can fold back to awaken the ipad 2 (the magnetic strips power down the tablet when all folded down). If you keep on folding you will see that the strips fold neatly behind the iPad 2 to create a raised typing stand or a vertical watching stand. Clever huh.

The Proporta range is built more around protection, with the aluminium reinforced leather bound case my favourite. It’s as sturdy as you would expect and about the best protection you can get for your iPad 2. The Aluminium plate is concealed neatly out of site and the Leather Exterior is about the best quality you can buy. Proporta have similarly designed models on the same blueprint with leather substitute, eco leather and high gloss finishes, and most noticeably the leather sleeve with tartan or pin stripe lining.

I personally love the Smart Covers, I can’t get enough of their functionality and they come in a great range of colours, and they are available now whilst the Proporta range comes at the end of the month. iPad 2 Cases and Covers exhibit the full compliment of covers talked about here at great prices.

To onclude the review, its down to two broad choices, two brands, and two great options, but ultimately the only choice here for me is what colour to get your iPad 2 Case Smart Cover in
