Apple iPad 2 Smart Cover clone lands

First iPad 2 Smart Cover imitator surfaces

The first clone of the Apple iPad 2 Smart Cover has arrived in the shape of the PixelSkin HD Wrap case.

The third party iPad 2 add-on which is available from Speck, shares more than a passing resemblance to the official accessory shown off with the iPad 2 at the beginning of the month.

With a 'stylish matte finish', the PixelSkin case enables you to fold for prime viewing and typing, just like the Smart Cover. Notably however, there's no sign of those magnets, but in its place you'll find micro suction to keep your next gen Apple tablet tucked away snug.

Priced in at $49.95, it's cheaper than the leather Smart Cover ($69), but more expensive than the polyurethane version ($39).

If the PixelSkin HD Wrap case doesn't take your fancy, you can always check out our round up of the best iPad 2 cases and accessories here.
