Apple today released a new case for the iPad 2 and new iPad offering the same functionality as the existing Smart Cover, but it covers the back of the iPad as well as the front.

The iPad Smart Case covers your iPad — both front and back — yet still retains the thin, light design of iPad. Like the Smart Cover, it folds easily into a stand for reading, typing, and watching video. And it automatically wakes and sleeps iPad on open and close. Made from polyurethane, it’s available in six bright colors. And you can personalize it with free laser engraving on the Apple Online Store.

The new Smart Case is available for $49 on the Apple Online Store in Light Gray, Dark Gray, Blue, Green, Pink and Red.

I gotta see this in person. Hard to tell quality and feel from CGI stock art.

I never bought a smart cover because it didn't protect the back of the iPad, but I'm now considering purchasing one of these for my iPad 2. Looks quite nice imo (except some of the colours, like the green one!). I'd probably get the grey one.

It doesn't look like too different from other third party companies. It looks more like copying their product although those product were made based on Apple smart cover. What do you think of the price? I have seen those cases from online, but I don't know how much those are. Is the price of Apple Smart Case beatable in the market?

You can get something cheaper for sure, but not very often do you find something that beat the quality of something made by Apple.
