Tired of hearing about Apple’s Smart Cover line for the iPad 2? Want your new tablet to standout? Consider buying the new Miniot Cover for iPad 2 made from wood, which was first spotted by the folks at TUAW. Created by Holland-based Miniot, the €50 cover looks similar to the Smart Cover. Like Apple's cover, open it up, and the iPad magically wakes up. Close it, and the iPad automatically goes to sleep. There are two differences, however: First, it is made from a single piece of “certified” wood, which can be personally engraved for free. Second, rather than folding into a triangular tub, the Miniot Cover rolls into a cylinder, when you want to support your iPad 2 for viewing videos or typing. Check out this video: According to the Miniot website, you may begin placing orders for its Cover beginning tomorrow, March 25. What do you think? Leave your comments below.
