Miniot Cover for iPad exploits iPad 2's case magnets

updated 01:25 pm EST, Fri March 4, 2011

May be first third-party case to do so

Accessory maker Miniot has unveiled the Cover, its first product for the iPad 2. Like the company's iPhone and iPod gear, the Cover is made out of wood. Significantly though the Cover takes advantages of the iPad 2's built-in magnets, which can hold and align cases and help automatically lock or unlock iOS.

The Cover should ship by the end of March at a minimum cost of $69. Smoked oak, walnut, cherry, padouk, or mahogany is available as primary material; microfiber lining faces an iPad's screen. Also, while the Cover doesn't protect a tablet's back, when it is rolled up it can serve as a stand at two different angles.

The product may be the first third-party accessory to rely on the iPad 2's magnets. Apple itself is only selling Smart Covers, the foundation of Miniot's design. These cost $39 in polyurethane form or $69 in leather.

    and

    With these covers, how soon before people start suing over damage from not having a quality case that can actually protect your device, rather than just the screen?

    You just have to take proper precautions. :-P
