    I bought a new Smart Cover for my The new iPad. I feel like its a lot softer, and keeps the the screen more clean. I was thinking about buying a leather Smart Cover just to try it out and see what they are like. If you have one, are they more like the 1st or 2nd generation Smart Covers as far as the fabric that lays against the screen?

    Pictures - The dark grey polyurethane i bought just a week or so ago, and the blue polyurethane I bought when the iPad 2 was released.

    It's nice to know Apple had improved them. I certainly had noticed a difference.

    I was going to buy a leather cover for my iPad3, but I know from the first generations of leather covers, they weren't very good and they never held together for very long.

    Well that explains it. I read a lot of reviews of the Smart Cover saying that it didn't really clean the screen but I decided to pick one up anyway as I liked the overall function and was surprised by how well it did (it wasn't perfect but it was much better than advertised). I just couldn't beleive how high the standards were.

    Yes of course, but my 1st gen smart cover will stay on my iPad 2. I needed a new smart cover to protect my new iPad


    How exactly did they fall apart? Please be detailed! I am very interested this may affect me buying one or not.

    How can you tell if you have a second generation smart cover? Are all smart covers in Apple stores today 2nd gen? Or do they try to sell out the first gens?

    Anyway to tell with the product number or model number?
