Miniot, based in the Netherlands (Holland), recently (03.25.11) started accepting orders for their beautiful wood iPad2 cover. The cover is functionally similar to Apple’s own Smart Cover, featuring a magnet array that wakes the iPad2 when the cover is rolled back.
The Miniot iPad2 cover is carved from a single piece of sustainably harvested certified wood. Various patterns are available, and for a limited time you can have a message, or logo engraved into your Miniot iPad2 cover for free. The cover is rolled back, unlike the Smart Cover, which folds into a triangular tube. A black ultrasuede microfiber lining protects your iPad2 from scratches.
Miniot put together a video demo. If you like what you see, you can place your order here. At a price tag of just €50, about the same as Apple’s own Smart Cover, you can expect to wait for yours. I think I’m going to get in line for mine.
