One of the coolest things about iPad 2 is that Apple actually bothered to create a screen cover specifically for it.
Sold separately, Smart Cover protects the slim iPad 2's screen without covering up its rather attractive aluminum back. Smart Cover magnetically attaches to the side of the new iPad and perfectly aligns itself to the screen for a perfect fit.
But Smart Cover is more than just a screen protector. It also folds up and transforms into a stand for your iPad 2. It even lets you tilt your device for a more comfortable typing position.
Here's how it folds up to become a typing stand:
The magnetic hinge holds iPad 2 in place allowing users to type comfortably and quickly.
Smart Cover also keeps your iPad 2 ready to use wherever you are. Close it and iPad 2 automatically goes to sleep. Open it and iPad 2 instantly wakes up!

Smart Covers are made of either polyurethane or aniline-dyed Italian leather. Polyurethane cases come in Orange, Pink, Gree, Blue and Grey. The leather ones are available in Brown, Tan, Black, Navy Blue and Red. Poly covers sell for $39 while those in leather cost $69 a piece.
We're still awaiting word on iPad 2 and Smart Cover's availability in the Philippines.
