We give you a first-look at the new Apple iPad Smart Case in this episode. The iPad Smart Case is similar to the Smart Cover, except that instead of just covering the front display of the iPad, it actually covers the entire body, front and back. It's available in six colors for $49 from the Apple Store, and we give you a look at how it works. Also be sure to read our iPad Smart Case review, and check out the iPad Smart Case photo gallery as well.
When Apple launched the iPad, they knew that users would need some sort of accessory to use with the device that would make it easier to type on and use as an entertainment consumption device. That said, they released the first-party Apple iPad Case in the hopes of providing that relief. The Apple iPad Case serves three purposes in our minds—first, it provides a layer of protection. It’s soft, and it keeps the screen covered when you are transporting it around. It isn’t the most protective cover you can get, but it serves the purpose. Secondly, it acts as a stand that lets you comfortably type on the iPad. In fact, it’s so comfortable that we wrote our entire 4,000 word iPad review on the iPad itself, using the case to prop it up. Lastly, the Apple iPad Case also let’s you stand the iPad up vertically in the landscape orientation. This lets you use it to view content like videos and such, without having to hold onto the device.
We give you a look at the iPad case, and give you our opinions as well, in this episode.
