I have been using that for the past few days... I must say it is a very creative design. If it is not so expensive, I will probably buy few more colors and use it depending on the mode of the day...

I hope they will make one for the old iPad soon.

I don't see how they would (product phasing out) even if they could (ipad 1 no magnets)

not possible due to iPad does not have the Sleep Sensor

look at step 4

The sleep sensor. This is the little sensor that reacts to the Smart Cover's round magnet for turning on/off the iPad 2's screen.

not when u really want it to be Light. no matter what case u use, it will add on bit of weight to it.

I was using a case for the iPad but after awhile, i decide to take it out. I have a skin guard on the back of it. I wish they have something similar (iPad 2 case) for iPad 1.

if i own a ipad 2.. i will go for the magnetic case and again, put a skin guard at the back.

very nice skin leh! but does that skin have the leather feel? synthetic leather would be nice still.

I wouldn't mind the smart cover with a nice skin guard behind.


Edit: oOoo.. just checked SGP's site.. it does give a leather feel to the guard. Thats great ^__^... I know what I'll be getting for my ipad 2 now.
