New Orleans, LA — Not that there's anything wrong with Apple's Smart Cover, but its tri-fold design is kind of limited, especially if you want your iPad to stand by itself vertically. To help your iPad stand up on its own in virtually any position, Moshi has unveiled the Versa smart cover here at the CTIA show.
Is your iPad looking a bit 2010-ish? Do you envy all those people who stood in line to get an iPad 2 with its fancy pants Smart Cover? Well if so, here's a simple hack that lets you add a new smart cover to your hideously old and outdated iPad 1.
"Have you seen the lines at the box office!" exclaimed Roger De Bris, the FAB-ulous director of the play-within-The Producers, Springtime for Hitler. "It's an avalanche! It's a torrent! It's the biggest hit on Broadway!" Well, not Broadway literally, but the iPad 2 is producing lines, sell-outs and now shipment delays in the face of nearly unprecedented sales. When I sauntered to the Apple store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan at around 4pm last Friday afternoon to buy mine, I was shocked to find the line had snaked completely around the block. Why was I shocked? iPad was available in literally 10 times the number of locations than last year's original, but the lines were still longer this time. Why the avalanche and torrent? I have a theory!
Yesterday, an enthusiastic and somewhat healthy looking Steve Jobs unveiled the long-awaited and rumored iPad 2 to much applause. He also showed off the iPad 2's "Smart Covers." Problem is, the covers don't really protect the thinner tablet from the bumpiness of daily life.
