PixelSkin HD Wrap for iPad 2 is one of the newest Speck iPad accessories. It is inspired after Apple’s Smart Cover, but it is more than a simple cover: it’s a full case. There will be many iPad 2 owners who will welcome this case, because we all fear getting our iPad scratched.

Slim-fitting and protective, PixelSkin HD Wrap for iPad 2 features a very nice glossy-mate finish and bright colors which will surely attract looks. The front cover uses micro-suction to stay closed. It folds into a stand when needed, exactly like Apple’s Smart Cover. The case has not been released yet, but as far as we can see from the photos, there will be openings for all ports, controls and camera, so the iPad will be fully operational while inside the case.

According to Speck, the PixelSkin HD Wrap for iPad 2 was inspired by the CandyShell Wrap for the original iPad. We believe both of them were inspired after the original Smart Covers from Apple, but we can understand there’s no point in reinventing the wheel. Speck’s iPad cases come with several improvements such as the rubberized inner lining and the hard-shell design.

    A little bummed out. I have to be honest. I ordered the cover because it looked cool. But that coolness wears off, when the fallacy of protection and false assurance kicks in. Protection is limited to cosmetic scuffs and annoying fingerprints. But not drops. Not sure that the cover is any better, much less smarter. It does not offer much in protection. I was skeptical about the cover to begin with. Nevertheless, if your looking to protect your investment with a simple cover, we run the risk of inflicting some damage from a simple accident. I had to reassess my needs after a near fatal drop with the cover. I ordered a few days ago a leather Mivizu iPad 2 case called the Sense, and I also ordered an Otterbox hardshell. Best, the Mivizu folio is affordable priced at $26.99 against apple’s not smart price of $69.99 http://www.amazon.com/Mivizu-Sense-Leather-Feature-ciPD2mvzSMRTblk/dp/B004V0CCQK
    Anyways, for real protection look elsewhere.
