Hi all. I'm new here as I'm getting an iPad 2 in a couple of weeks. I'm familiar with Zagg products and while I have concerns about the manufacturing of the Zaggmate, I've been comforted by how well Zagg stands behind its products.
Before I give my ideas publicly, let me say how impressed I was when I emailed the president and got a response from CAMERON LEISHMAN of his/her office at least acknowledging my ideas. Although I'm pretty sure the iPad 2 version is in production, I want these ideas out there publicly so Zagg can get feedback.
Frankly, I could do each of these without Zagg, but it would probably be more "professional looking" if done by the manufacturer. I'm sure I could find, cut and place a magnet. I'm also planning to use a Helostrap (google it) to hold the iPad 2 in the case, screen up in the instances where I can't just put the case away. Also, I can't decide whether to skin the case bottom or get better silicon feet.
- Since the iPad 2 is relatively flat, it should be possible to fit the iPad 2 in the case screen-side up. This, along with a simple way to prop the iPad 2 up to use the software keyboard would MAXIMIZE flexibility. Not worried about access to ports, but that would be a nice bonus.
- Add magnets to the appropriate place so iPad 2 goes to sleep when placed in case.
Do these, fix the aluminum wrist rub, tighten up manufacturing (insides peeling, power issues, rubber feet) and we'd be close to perfect.
BTW, I for one wouldn't trade much weight for speakers.

You see, I told you they are a great company and support their products.
Well done Zagg.
I'm just new to the Forum. I bought a Zaggmate recently and love it. I agree with other posts above that it is a great design - the suggestions for improvement are also good - especially about an eject button. Maybe imporving the quality of the pop-up stand as well?
I hope they can support people who are outside USA also

I haven't seen the new iPad or the new ZAGGmate, but this already exists for the current iPad and ZAGGmate. You just open the iPad support as normal and instead of placing in the notch you lay the bottom edge of the iPad against the aluminum at the front corners of the keyboard. This works great in landscape mode but in portrait mode the iPad is narrower than the cutout is wide and you are relying on the stiction between the back of the iPad and the neoprene inside the case to hold the iPad in place.
