iPad 2 Smart Cover Is Light & Airy, But Beware Greasy Streaks [In-Depth Review] | Cult of Mac
Well I was at best buy today and I saw a smart cover that had an open box so i got it for 20$ I would've never gotten it had it not been on sale.
There are a couple already out there, and as a very satisfied owner, I'd recommend Treegloo. Key features include: magnetic activation comes standard on all iPad 2 cases; camera port optional; have the most versatile customization options available, including having your own photos/pictures on inner liner; they have also made a number of design and material improvements with their Series 2 cases recently.Originally Posted by blessed
As for the other vendors, these were my reasons I ruled them out:
Portenzo -- has been having delivery problems recently, but also the only vendor actually offering genuine leather (cowhide and other exotics like stingray, etc) if that's what strikes your fancy. I emailed them with questions and no response, which nudged me to Treegloo. They were a close second choice.
Pad and Quill -- the only case so far which comes with stylus holder; but their material is 'bonded leather' which is a type of low-cost quasi-synthetic leather, which to me is inferior to the vinyl cover material used on Treegloo.
DodoCase -- probably best known brand, but also notoriously plagued with durability problems with frame and rubber pads (Google ’iPad falls out DodoCase' for YouTube videos) for months now; and their iPad 2 case has no rear camera port (epic design fail).
I am seriously considering Waterfield Designs IPad2 case. It has optional shoulder strap and accessory pouch. SFBags - WaterField Designs - iPad Ultimate SleeveCase - iPad Sleeve - iPad 2 with Smart Cover - TSA Checkpoint Friendly
Anyone tried this case yet?

bring snacks and your IPad 2
I have the Targus VHS ape which I love. Very protective and great viewing angles. I have been looking into the zaggmate for the iPad 2 once it is launched. It looks really sweet.
