And practical too. However, it must be noted that the idea is not very original. Granted, Apple enthusiasts would claim revolutionary technology if the company released a bluetooth headset for the device. But the truth of the matter is that RIM has had been using the magnetic sleep technology in its cases for almost 11 years now. Kudos to Apple for seeing a great idea and capitalizing on it. Boo for claiming it is new and original. 😐

I still had not found a thin cover that did what I wanted and still left the face of the iPad exposed. I bought the green one and am very happy. I also worry about scratching the back, and will look at some of the thin sheet type of covers for the back. For now I only put it down on paper or magazines to keep it looking good.

I just pop the iPad 2 with the Smart Cover on in the neoprene sleeve when I’m going to put it in my bag or take it somewhere, and I just take it out when I’m using it and lay the sleeve under it if I’m going to expose the back to type on it. When I’m at home, I just lay the iPad face down on the Smart Cover, or fold it and stand it up in landscape so the iPad doesn’t touch my desk. All in all I really like it, and the additional sleeve isn’t an inconvenience at all. It’s extra protection, and it has a pocket on the front for my headphones and my Pogo Sketch stylus. I didn’t get the Smart Cover to be a full-on case, I bought it as a simple stand for my iPad that’s worked out GREAT. The addition of the neoprene sleeve is a solution that’s really worked out well and destroyed any worries I had about the Smart Cover not providing enough protection.

Which doesn’t do as well when competing against the keys in my purse as the amazing glass. Honestly I’m more worried about the back as I am the front. I’m thinking about getting a Zagg body cover to protect the back and using the smart cover for the front. Also I have found that rolling the smart cover backwards makes more sense. I don’t like the idea of the soft microfiber inside touching that sticky Starbucks table or whatever else I may put it on. It seems to work well and it also seems to be keeping the glass cleaner.

It simply works. It is thin and has multiple uses. So I love it! As far as not covering the back this is less of an issue with the aluminum which doesn’t scratch as easily. And remember one of the points here is the cover tries not to completely hide the product. I think this will allow a whole new generation of accessories. Not just covers but other things that utilize the magnets within.
