    I like it. Tablets are already big (unlike my Kindle that I keep in a case) so I'd rather use them without a case.

    I don't care that much about scratching the back. I figure if I'm careful with it and put it in a neoprene sleeve (with smartcover over the screen) when I'm putting it in my briefcase etc. it should be fine.

    Though I did have the same worry about the cloth side of the case that touches the screen picking up things. But I haven't had much issue with that with my Kindle case and I often have it folded over and sit it down with the clothe side that touches the screen on a table etc.

    I personally don't like the new covers and that is the main reason I'm not upgrading to the iPad 2...I got my Saddleback cover and the new design wouldn't fit in the case...I usually use cases to cover my iPhones or iPads because though I love the look I do like keeping them pristine incase I need to possibly sell them to upgrade if I need/want too...

    I like the cover but I'm kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place with it. That's because I like to have a grip case ("shell", if you want to call it that) on the iPad like I have now, which gives it a nice grip and looks nice (I have the MacAlly clear Flexitpad case, which I compared closely with the clear Belkin GripVue but found this one to be a bit better). With that, it wouldn't be possible to attach the magnetic cover unless because the grip case wraps around the edge of the case and about 1/16" onto the bezel. Perhaps, I could cut out part of the grip case to accommodate the magnetic contact points?

    I like it but, I am also worried that it leaves the back vulnerable.

    I'd wait to see it in person before making any decisions. (Accessories are important decisions.)

    No reason they shouldn't.

    Well the magnets may not be strong enough to work through it if it's a skin that covers the back or side (but that's probably not an issue) or the skin could stick out and make the magnet edge of the case not snap flat on the side of the iPad 2 (though I'd think you could trim the skin back around the attachments if needed).

I'm interested to hear thoughts because as far as i've heard, everyone is in love with the cases.

    The magnetic attachment just happens to offer quick on/off... slick IMO. Also the triangular stand is clever and effective. Accommodates the camera adapter which provide and SD slot ... great for photo transfer.

    Since iPAD2 is a Xmas gift to my bride ... Blue works for her $39

    The cover protects when you set it aside ... No one wants scratches on the case ...perhaps a thin adhesive armour films on the back would work.

    On a slightly different note, do you think Apple will have any other cases for sale at the launch besides the smart cover? I am very impatient about such things LOL, and like to have something right away. I didn't use my Kindle for over a week after I got it, until I could get a cover and skin delivered.
