Griffin’s IntelliCase for iPad 2 Makes Apple’s Smart Cover Look Kinda Dumb



Smart Cover? IntelliCase? Yeah, there’s no product-naming rivalry going on there. And just like its name, Griffin’s IntelliCase, is a cooler version of Apple’s ubiquitous iPad 2 Smart Cover, because it adds something sorely missing from Apple’s version: a back.

For $60 ($20 more than the Smart Cover), Griffin’s version, which ships today,  has the snazzy magnetic wake-on-opening trick and foldable stand brilliance, but turns into a folio case for when you want the iPad’s gorgeous derriere protected during transport. The only downside is that it’s only available in black.
