Accessories: Booq launches new Folio for iPad 2

updated 08:45 pm EST, Tue November 22, 2011

Smart cover functionality, stability bumpers

Accessory maker Booq has launched a new line of full folio-style cases for the iPad 2 that replicate Apple's Smart Cover functionality while also providing full protection for the back and sides of the device as well. Offered in four colors, the simply named Folio case features rubber stability bumpers to keep the iPad in place when using it in presentation or video-watching mode.

The Folio features a durable leatherette exterior in either "Lava rock," "Arctic ice," "Red tide" or "Blue storm" along with a matching plush suede interior. The iPad retains access to all ports while in the case, including the rear-facing camera. The front cover has embedded magnets to trigger the automatic sleep/wake functionality of Apple's Smart Cover.

The Booq Folio for iPad 2 is available now and sells for $40.
