"If you like the Smart Cover but don't like its propensity to fall off or the lack of protection it provides the back plate, you'll love the Choiix Wake Up Folio for iPad 2."
The Choiix Wake Up Folio for iPad 2 is just like Apple's Smart Cover but includes a back plate to protect the aluminum backing of your iPhone. That extra back case also means it won't fall off the way Apple's Smart Cover often does. In fact, the iPad 2 snaps right in and fits snuggly and securely enough that you can lift it by the cover, something impossible with Apple's original.
Since the Choiix Wake Up Folio includes the back case along with the cover, it is heavier and bulkier than Apple's Smart Cover, but there's always a trade-off between profile and protection. Like Apple's Smart Cover, magnets in the iPad 2 and in the case allow it to turn your iPad 2 on when you open the cover, and off when you close it again.
Also like Apple's Smart Cover, you can fold the Choiix Wake Up Folio's cover up to work as a stand in either flat mode for typing or stand-up mode for watching videos and movies. It's perhaps not quite as bendable as Apple's, but it's close enough not to matter. The cover is polyurethane with a soft, plush inside to protect against scratches. It comes in just about every color you'd expect -- white, gray, blue, green, orange, pink, and black.
Cutouts provide access to all the usual ports and while most won't cause a problem, they are cut close enough that some of the chunkier media cables or automotive chargers might have a tough time squeezing in. There's also a grid over the back speaker and while minor, the more sound sensitive among you might notice the difference.
