The case also has the wake/sleep function built-in, which is why it's called "smart."
Alas, the only downside is that the Smart Libretto is pretty pricey at $119.
What's interesting is the G-Form Extreme Sleeve is actually soft and flexible. G-Form says the secret is RPT-Reactive Protection Technology that's "a combination of Poron XRD material and proprietary G-Form design."
The company says its version 2 model, which looks the same as the original, has additional RPT edge and zipper protection, as well as a slightly larger interior to accommodate the iPad 2 with Smart Cover.
It also comes in black and costs $59.95.
The Axis line also has built-in sleep/wake detection so when you open/close the cover, it'll put your iPad 2 to sleep or wake it up.
Most of the Axis cases list for around $50 and can be found online for closer to $40. The one pictured here is the Poppy Axis.
Note: Though we've highlighted this case, Joy Factory also makes a few other iPad 2 cases
This one lists for $69.99.
All this protection comes at a price. The Otterbox Defender is $89.99.
The system pictured here incorporates the iPad 2 Cover Stand ($29.99). As you can see, it's a hard cover that folds into a stand.
It lists for $149.99 but can be had for $140 on Amazon.
The Rivet Leather Portfolio sells for $80.
Weird as that name is, SGP does make some of the nicest iPad 2 cases we've seen made of high-quality soft leather. At $94.99, the Argos costs a $10 more than its sibling (see next slide), the Stehen.
This Timbuk2 retails for $39 and comes in multiple colors.
