Apple is trying to patent a Smart Cover for the iPad that has an embedded secondary display. Or in other words: eat it, Surface.
The new iPad is a lot like the old iPad, except when it comes to Smart Covers. Apparently some old Smart Covers and third-party cases aren’t working with the new iPad. The reason? Polarity matters now.
When it’s finally available, Asus’ Eee Pad Transformer Prime will be inevitably compared and reviewed against the iPad. And one feature that will certainly help its cause is this Smart Cover that takes a more intricate folding approach to Apple’s original design.
