Belkin ( has unveiled two new cases for the iPad 2, the Snap Shield Secure and the Emerge 024. Both cases are part of Belkin’s Snap Shield lineup and are designed specifically to work with the Apple Smart Cover.

The Snap Shield Secure (US$39.99) is a thin, translucent case that snaps to the back of the iPad 2 for streamlined protection that shows off the Apple tablet’s design elements. The integrated steel strip holds the Smart Cover flat against the case when it’s open. The soft-touch material is designed to shield against wear and tear without adding bulk.

The $39.99 Emerge has a perforated pattern and comes with colored inserts. The case snaps onto the back of the iPad 2 and works with the Apple Smart Cover.
