Don't know why folks would want to spend >$40 for an OEM smart cover. Other than the 'KHOMO' logo on the front, which is visibly subtle, this cover is just like the Apple brand and does what it should do.. The cable was a bonus.
This case is KHOMO brand. It is not made by Apple but it is exactly the same case Apple sells for over $40. Probably from the same manufacturer. This case is so much more than a case, the Smart Cover was designed alongside iPad 2 to be its perfect match: a thin, durable cover that magnetically aligns for a perfect fit. It automatically wakes and sleeps your iPad 2. Its a handy stand for reading, watching, and typing. Its microfiber lining keeps your iPad screen clean. And its a way to make your iPad as personal on the outside as it is on the inside. THIS LISTING ALSO INCLUDES A FREE 6FT USB SYNC CHARGER CABLE, TWICE THE SIZE OF THE ORIGINAL ONE.
