Many people following the iPad 2 announcement knows about the new Smart Covers for the iPad 2. These flap-like covers attach to the iPad using a magnet and have an accordion-style look. The covers, divertingly enough, also resemble a type of Japanese bath tub lids! .
The similarity is so unearthly that the introduction of these new cases caused a fuss of bath tub lid comments among Japanese Apple fans (our Rick Martin points to Asiajin's note that the caption above translates as 'Completely Identical,' a common Japanese web meme similar to the English 'Separated at Birth'). Causes you to wonder how many unsuspecting Westerners will be whatever target of quiet snickering when they whip out their Smart Cover-adorned iPad 2 when they are in Tokyo.
