iSkin is now shipping its Vu and solo Smart cases for the iPad 2. The Vu, which debuted in our iPad 2 Buyers’ Guide, is a hybrid case made from TPU and polycarbonate, featuring embedded Microban antibacterial protection, an integrated multi-position stand, protection for the home and volume buttons, integrated covers for the dock connector and headphone ports, open access to both cameras, and a two-tone design with a clear rear center area. It is available in one of three color combinations and sells for $60.

Features include integrated covers for the headphone and dock connector ports, push-through protection for the volume and sleep/wake buttons, open access to the speaker and rear camera, embedded Microban antibacterial technology, and a feature called CoverLock that features integrated brackets meant to make the connection between the iPad 2 and the Smart Cover more secure. The solo Smart is available now and is priced at $50.

I bought 2 of the Iskin Vu for Ipad2. The charge/sync cable does not fit in the opening so it has to be opened in order to sync/charge your ipad 2. All other openings and covers line up properly. Also, the rubber feet are glued to the bottom of the stand with a weak glue. The shift around and one fell off right out of the box. Normally, i would just ask for a replacement but 5 of the last 6 Iskin covers i purchased for ios devices have had fit or alignment problems.
