Some more rumours are coming out of iLounge via their editor Jeremy Horwitz. The latest is Apple has plans to release a Smart Cover inspired ‘Smart Case’, similar to the concept of the Incase Magazine Jacket:
(1) The iPad Smart Case. Apple apparently has been working on a Smart Cover-influenced case of its own for the upcoming iPad. Said to be similar to Incase’s Magazine Jacket (and a host of subsequent alternatives that have appeared for the iPad 2), this new case has a folding magnetized Smart Cover on the front, and a rear shell made from fiberglass covered with PU/bicast leather. It’s unclear whether this case will be solely for the thicker new iPad or include backwards compatibility for the iPad 2.
Apple tried the full body case for the first iPad, which did not stir up the same passion and love people have towards the innovative magnetic Smart Cover for the iPad 2. We know Apple doesn’t like to hide the beautiful design of its products in cases, so I can see this as an additional case to be sold alongside the Smart Cover. The market is definitely there for full body protection.
