The one thing I don’t like about Apple’s Smart Cover for the iPad is that the magnets in the hinge sometimes let go of the iPad. One of the things I don’t like about most folio style cases is the frame that completely obscures the bezel of my iPad. Not only does the frame obscure the nice white bezel, sometimes it can interfere with using the touchscreen. Case-Mate has a new folio-style cover that eliminates both those issues. The front of the Ultra-Slim Textured Tuxedo Case is a Smart Cover-style cover with magnets to sleep/wake the iPad. There’s no frame for the iPad; instead, you attach the back of the Tuxedo Cover to the iPad with the built-in, reuseable Magic Tape. (Removable without leaving sticky residue behind.) The Tuxedo has a soft-touch, textured exterior and a microfiber interior. It’s available in gray, black, orange, hot pink, and turquoise blue for $60.
