    for EU/UK owners: Smart Cover compatible shells

    Just starting this thread since availability of many of the shells is only in the US. Sure you can order from the US, but a lot of the time it'll get taxed and the shipping costs don't help either.

    I've been using my new iPad2 in a cheap eBay 6 silicon sleeve- the thing doesn't even have a cut-out for the mic. Actually found that for around the home, it's perfect and hence why something compatible with the smart cover would be nice. Put it on for typing/going out. Take it off when at home.

    No news on the Enki Genius Case or Joy SmartFit2.

    I've seen the Xgear Enhancer for 29.90 available on the 21st of April.
    - Personally I don't trust the slit design around the corners, even despite the [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6l_jvDPVH5A&feature=player_embedded"]2 product videos [/ame]on YouTube.

    I also found something pretty similar to the Enki & Joy cases; the Cool Banannas SmartShell Case for a more acceptable [ame="http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B004V2XS20/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&m=A3AYPRJMARBIYK"]17.95[/ame]. Expected to ship from the 14th of April.

    I've already pre-ordered the SmartShell Case in transparent since it actually comes up around the bezel to provide better protection. I also ordered a customised Gelaskin because well, the back of the iPad is boring and it'll also serve to protect the exposed aluminium where the Apple Smart Cover attaches

    I just got a cheap gel skin that I might take a knife to and cut a strip out of so the smart case will work.

    Worked out quite well the smart cover doesnt stay shut well on its own but considering it cost me 3 i dont really think i can complain.
    i did originally cut a line so the smart cover would just slot in but it wouldnt close very well and the side of the case just flapped about so i just cut it off

    it probably would be alot better if the gel was more ridged and black.

    will keep me going untill all the case manufacturers catch up.
