Product Description

Apple's Smart Cover is great. It protects your screen and allows you to stand your iPad 2 up for typing and viewing. It's very useful. But the one thing that the Smart Cover doesn't do is protect the back of your iPad 2 from scratches and dings and daily usage. This is where Speck's SmartShell comes in. If you're using Apple's Smart Cover for the front of your iPad 2, Speck's SmartShell has got your back. This lightweight, ultra-thin hard case covers the back of your tablet, and coordinates seamlessly with your Smart Cover for complete, streamlined protection. Plus it has a soft-touch finish to give you a secure, comfortable grip! Smart Cover sold separately! There is even a spot that coordinates with the Smart Cover's magnet that will keep the Smart Cover attached and out of the way while the iPad 2 is in use. Founded in 2001, (with cases for the original iPod and the iSport, an iPod fanny pack with blinking lights) Speck has grown to become a worldwide leader in cases and bags for iPhone, MacBook, BlackBerry, iPad and tons of other personal electronic devices. But they're not a monolithic corporate entity: they're gadget geeks. Speck makes the sort of fun, functional, stylish cases that they'd want protecting their own gear-or, for that matter, their kids' and grandparents' gear. This product has no front cover. The Smartshell snaps onto the back of the ipad 2 and integrates with the Apple designed and separately purchased Smartcover.

It fits perfectly and protects the iPad very well.
Prima
This case is very thin- but adds nice protection to the back of my iPad2 as well as making it a little more tactile & easier to hold.

The other day I removed the cover because I noticed a little bit of dirt trapped around the edges of my ipad.

Two weeks after I got this I had a stupid attack. I was getting in my car and was distracted by a phone call and drove off with the iPad in the roof. As I was getting on a curved freeway onramp at 40 MPH the iPad went flying. Skidded a ways and came to a stop in the breakdown lane. When I retrieved it the iPad was was still in perfect condition. The case had the crap beat out of it but it still works.

I bought this for my third-generation iPad knowing that that model was 0.6mm thicker than the iPad 2, for which this case was actually designed. Good news -- it fits! Great companion to Apple's Smart Cover, and the metal strip on the back for holding the cover in place when the iPad is in use is a must-have for this kind of case. The soft touch feel is comfortable and "grippy," and the slots for ports are precisely formed. If you don't mind adding a millimeter or so of thickness to your iPad, this is a great Smart Cover companion.

My only minor complaint is that the SmartShell makes no attempt to secure the Smart Cover hinge in place, as do some other cases of this type. While it certainly doesn't make accidental Smart Cover detachment any *more* likely, it doesn't protect against it either. And perhaps that feature wouldn't be worth the additional width it would require.

I got this as a gift for my mom's birthday. She loves her iPad 2 and the Apple Smart Cover is an excellent product. She has the matching blue Smart Cover and always wishes that there was a nice looking case that protected the back from scratches, as well as working with the Smart Cover. This product went above and beyond all of my expectations! It feels great, it is smooth but not too slippery. The SmartShell is thin, lightweight, and protective. The SmartShell works beautifully with the Smart Cover. I got my mom the matching light blue, and the Smart Cover and SmartShell blend flawlessly and are clearly made for each other. I highly recommend this product over any other for the IPad 2. It "snaps" on quickly and easily and can also be removed without too much effort, but would never come off on its own by mistake. Her iPad still slides easily into her InCase brand iPad sleeve even with the SmartShell and Smart Cover on it. As usual, Amazon.com has the best price and Prime shipping, so this product was the best birthday gift I have gotten my mom in years for me and her. It was exactly what she wanted and it did not break my bank! I believe the photos on Amazon of this product are highly accurate according to color, shape and size; you can see the apple logo through this color case as shown in the stock photo. I was impressed by this product when I found and ordered it, and even more impressed when I actually got it! The iPad "breathes" well in the case and does not seem to overheat. The SmartShell is made with a very high craftsmanship quality, it does not feel flimsy, I do not think that it will break or crack easily, and I truly believe that it will last for years. I have always trusted SPECK products to protect my Apple products.Read more ›

This is one great product that I actually got at gleemobile cause Amazon states a 4-5 week shipping date, what???? Why???

I ordered mine on Wednesday from gleemobile and had it on Friday! NOw that's service!

None the less if your looking for good solid overall protection for the back of your Ipad, look no further!

I have tried many and the only other case that comes close to this one is the Belkin Snap shield.

The Speck is a substantive protector for your Ipad's tender aluminum back, its thick, too thick, very durable, and very easy to take on and off, unlike other cases currently being marketed.

Most importantly it is also skin and screen protector friendly, so no issues there. If you already have these on don't worry about having to take them off, it fits like a charm!

All the Ipad functions are totally accessible and line up perfectly.

It just naturally adheres to the back of the Ipad so seamlessly, its evident that Speck engineers put a great deal of time and effort into the design of this product.

Also an innovative part of the design is the conductive strip that allows the Apple smart cover to hold itself in place is a real bonus, kudos to Speck on that one, no one else seems to have figured that one out.

What this protective case does is allow you to use the wonderful Apple Smart cover and not have to worry one bit about the back of the unit getting scratched and this is a GREAT thing!

I highly recommend this if your looking for a good sturdy all around protective shell for your Ipad 2 especially if you already have some sort skin protection on it.

And don't wait for Amazon go right over to gleemobile and pick it up right now, they'll ship it out priority mail for FREE!

Can't beat that!

After looking at many different types of covers, I decided on the Speck because of it's thin design, compatibility with the Apple Smart Cover and the metal strip on the back to hold the Smart Cover when folded over. The Smartshell has met all these expectations. I particularly like the metal strip on the back to hold the Smart cover in place. It was becoming a little annoying having the cover flop around on the back while holding the iPad, especially since I like to have the Home button near my right thumb and volume rocker in the left corner.

A nice surprise for me was the "feel" of the cover. It has a slight "rubbery" texture which I find comfortable. It feels like I have a better hold on the iPad verses the very smooth metal back, which sometimes felt like the iPad was going to slip out of my hands. I read in another review that the back is prone to scratching, I hope this is not the case, but I will try and provide an update later. Right now, I am very pleased and would recommend this cover.
