Asus demos Smart Cover/Origami-like sleeve

ASUS has lifted the lid on a video demo of its Transformer Prime Sleeve. The sleeve looks and functions similarly to the iPad 2 Smart Cover. It is also reminiscent of the InCase Origami iPad case that folds in a way that allows that props the device up for easy typing. Asus has given a video demo (embedded below) of the cover in action using its Facebook page.

The sleeve slips into the slots that are used to support the Transformer Prime's keyboard dock. Although it uses an aluminum binder, like the Smart Cover, it is not magnetic, and is therefore much more complicated to set up. It also folds in two different ways that does not seem completely intuitive, but also allows users to prop it up for viewing videos.

The cover is expected to retail for around $39. [via The Verge]
