Seems easier to just not buy at launch and wait for more accessories from third parties to be available if you don't like the launch covers...
I may have to wait to get my iPad 2 anyway--I'm a college student in the middle of nowhere without easy access to an apple store (not to mention im waiting on my tax return). Hopefully third party devs pump out some cases similar to the apple V1 case quickly.
I am still looking at potential cases, but I noticed tonight on Marwares website, they have a case that covers the back, that says it's compatible with the Apple Smart Cover...
I've got a iPad 1. =(.

I'm surprised that no one in the Internet mention about the metal part of the cover scratching the iPad's left side with frequent on and offs. That clicking sound from attaching the pair together, to me, sounds like a metal rubbing sound. Am I the only one who's concerned about this???
If the back, or rather side of iPad 2 is of the same material as iPad 1, then it will be almost impossible to scratch it with a non sharpOriginally Posted by josun
edge. The cover has rounded edges!
My thoughts are this...
Zagg or OTHER protector for the back.
smart case for the front.
Possible 3rd party "cover" for when I don't need the camera.
Stick it in my net book bag for when I'm doing whatevers...
But the simple coolness of the case means it's a given I'll get one, even if I'm not thrilled with the color selections.
That said, there have been reports of scratching to the back of the iPad units - so don't be surprised if you get a ding or scratch on the back slapping that cover on and off and on and off.
