Apple's Smart Cover is great. It protects your screen and allows you to stand your iPad 2 up for typing and viewing. It's very useful. But the one thing that the Smart Cover doesn't do is protect the back of your iPad 2 from scratches and dings and daily usage. This is where Speck's SmartShell comes in. If you're using Apple's Smart Cover for the front of your iPad 2, Speck's SmartShell has got your back. This lightweight, ultra-thin hard case covers the back of your tablet, and coordinates seamlessly with your Smart Cover for complete, streamlined protection. Plus it has a soft-touch finish to give you a secure, comfortable grip! Smart Cover sold separately! There is even a spot that coordinates with the Smart Cover's magnet that will keep the Smart Cover attached and out of the way while the iPad 2 is in use. Founded in 2001, (with cases for the original iPod and the iSport, an iPod fanny pack with blinking lights) Speck has grown to become a worldwide leader in cases and bags for iPhone, MacBook, BlackBerry, iPad and tons of other personal electronic devices. But they're not a monolithic corporate entity: they're gadget geeks. Speck makes the sort of fun, functional, stylish cases that they'd want protecting their own gear-or, for that matter, their kids' and grandparents' gear.
