Don't be fooled by the name: Simplism's Leather Smart Shell for iPad 2 ($45) is neither real leather nor a shell -- it's actually a faux leather, folio-style case. The iPad 2 fits into the right side, held in place by curled-over corners and curved clips at both the top and bottom of the device. On the left, there are six business card pockets that double as rests for the iPad 2 when the case is used as a landscape stand. All of the buttons and ports are left exposed, as is more of the edge than we would like. Magnets in the front cover activate the iPad 2's automatic locking feature. Navy, orange, and chocolate black versions of Leather Smart Shell are available.

Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
