    Interesting, so the Smart Cover is also a battery that charges the ipad? How do you charge the cover lol

    Rumor was it was the way Apple would introduce wireless charging. For some reason they couldn't include wireless charging into the iDevices themselves, so they opted for doing so via the accessory.

    Again. Just a rumor. Might have read on Engadget or BGR? Maybe even here. Whoever remembers?

    Hmm, a cover that charged a retina mini could be a bodge to keep the battery at 10hrs.

    I wonder how much a Smart Cover with these features would run.

    Smart Covers are an OK idea. SmartCases are five times better (for the obvious reason that they enclose and protect the entire tablet).

    i think we'll see new shaped smart covers for the redesigned iPad 5, but i can't see these patents working there way into a product this year. All guess work of course

    It’s not Apple’s fault you’re a fussy eater.

    With a price like that I'm sure people will be buying covers for their Smart Covers.

    Don't some people do that too? Have one of those wraps on their devices and a hard shell too.

    I suppose, but that sounds absolutely brutal to me.
