Leather cover for the new iPad

4 March 2011

Apple, one of the most sought after and iconic brands have announced that their new iPad 2 will be available with an optional leather cover. Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs unveiled the new version of the iPad on March 2, and said that the device would be ready to ship on March 11, sooner than the April availability expected. The machine is priced the same as the old one, despite plenty of new bells and whistles.

Jobs said Apple was keeping the same price range for the new devices, ranging from $499 for a 16-gigabyte model with only WiFi connections, up to $829 for the 64-gigabyte model with 3G. Jobs showed off a new cover, in leather and cloth versions during the launch, that attaches to the iPad via magnets, and that can be peeled back to automatically ‘wake’ the iPad.
