So like many of you I have been watching the iPad 2 shipping threads like a hawk the past few days, and i noticed something I find odd. Almost everyone seems to have purchases a smart cover! I personally just bought a dock along with my iPad 2 and will probably not get a smart cover. Anyway I can't figure out why everyone wants the smart cover so bad! Really when you think about it it is going to provide almost no drop protection. I mean sure it does automatically put the iPad to sleep when you put the cover on but I kind of feel like that is just a novelty at best. Lastly because it is just held on by magnets I can only imagine going to pick the iPad up off a table and only grabbing the cover and not the iPad. What that would leave you with is a smart cover in hand and a broken iPad on the floor if it is a hard surface. I for one am going to wait until some third party cases come out and save my money. I am interested to hear what everyones thought's are on this?
