As its name implies, the Smart feather incorporates the Apple Smart Cover and is Incipio’s best-selling, lightweight, hard shell feather case for the iPad 2.The Smart feather has already been featured on many well known sites such as Blogosphere, Twitter, and Facebook since Incipio announced its plans to release the case last month.
However, iPad 2 users have been facing two major issues when using the Smart Cover and that is, scratching and accidental detachment. The Smart Cover only protects the screen of the iPad 2 leaving the back of the device uncovered. Also, the Smart Cover is secured to the iPad 2 by two small magnets by a small metal spine located on the edge of the cover, and these magnets can become easily detached during use. So to solve these problems, Incipio has custom-molded its feather case to fit the contours of the iPad 2 and accommodate the “spine” of the Smart Cover to protect the back from scratches while securing the Smart Cover in place.
In addition to outstanding functionality, the feather line from Incipio is widely recognized for its sleek look and feel. The Smart Feather is thick and just over two ounces, and offers style and protection without the added weight or bulk. The case snaps on and off the iPad 2 and provides full access to all ports and speakers. The new Smart feather product will be available in eleven colors which correspond to the existing colors of the Apple Smart Cover.
The Smart feather has already received rave reviews from those who have seen pre-production samples. Peter Rojas, co-founder of the website gdgt, said that “the Smart feather is amazing, and very light” after seeing the case at gdgt in San Francisco on May 2011.
In keeping with its commitment to provide high quality products at tremendous value, Incipio has listed the Smart feather with a suggested retail price of $34.99.
