    I don't think ordinary wear and tear of any product is covered under any warranty, but you've got nothing to lose by taking the cover to an Apple store for examination. They might decide it's defective and give you a new one.

    Tell Apple that, chances are they will give you one more.

    Much like the iPhone4 "bumpers" these colorful pieces of plastic barely cover the device and afford very little if any protection but look beautiful and retail for 400x's what it cost to make. They also begin to look tattered and dirty after about a month of normal use...needless to say, I bought two of them (Baby Blue and Orange)...:D

    I got the baby blue also, with the white iPad, and let me say it look beautiful, but once the smart cover started being put to use they start tonwear out..

    The cover doesn't protect it AT ALL if you drop it! If it lands on its corner, it will shatter, and AppleCare DOESN'T cover it. Buy a $15 padded case WITH CARRYING HANDLES from AT&T's web site. ;)
