Love the iPad 2 Smart Cover but Long for Backside Protection
The iPad 2 is a very svelte lightweight tablet the draws attention from any crowd. It is so thin that you worry that it may break easily. In reality it is pretty durable and can withstand normal everyday use. Apple designed a very interesting Smart Cover for the Apple iPad 2 that works very well to protect the screen from scratches.
However, the backside of the iPad 2 is left uncovered and vulnerable to scratches. Would a scratch on the back of an iPad 2 effect its performance? No, of course not – but it could affect your psyche. Why take the chance when there is an inexpensive and easy to use solution? The Great Shield Smart Cover Buddy retains the look and feel of the iPad 2 without adding much bulk and does not detract from the great looks either.

Accessories Not Compatible between iPad and iPad 2
One thing learned from buying the first generation of any gadget is that you will not have the option to migrate the accessories to the second generation models. The iPad 2 is a great example of this phenomenon. Cases for the iPad allowed for a thicker body which the iPad 2 does not have. Stands may have more leeway between the two models but some will have snap-in type corners that are not shaped correctly for the iPad 2. Docking stations – although the pin connectors are the same are not compatible due to the location and angle of some ports.
