    Well so far from what i have seen, OtterBox is promoting 2 cases for the new iPad: Defender series (fitting iPad2 and new iPad) otherwise Utility Series Latch. So as for the corner i guess it's a good remark to them for the next generation of iPad... like 4th one?! too sad cause i do agree!

    In my opinion Gumdrop\Otterbox\wardmaster offer great protection.

    But for style, there are far better things out there, but then again, that a question of taste :-)

    As for the length of use, I cannot guarantee or further comment as so far I have got the cases for a week now so it's a bit too early to give you impression about that. But my overall impression as regards design, concept, protection is quite nice.
    OTTERBOX and survivor style case claim full protection for your iPad, like it would bounce if you drop it. I do not think iCoat Slim-Y series cases will do the same, or even claim it! And i surely won't dare trying the 6 feet drop with it^^
    They are a nice front and back protection, including a handy stand with the option of landscape AND portrait modes. Meanwhile they are slim adding no extra weight to your new iPad (as it's heavier than iPad2). Well they are closer to the basic full protection with option of 2 viewing modes and some personality/difference from what you have on the market.

    Hope that helps!
    As regards the users review, i guess it may come shortly. I saw a pre-view on iLounge news end of February and otherwise have sen their banners, gif on MacRumors.
    As for product reviews, i believe medias are busy right now working on it as well as they are working on the other brands new products should be a matter of time!
    I heard they are starting shipments and so i believe distributors will get the products on their rank within a short period. We stay tune!
    What are those loose/spare things in the 2nd picture? This case really looks great!

BUT got the chance last week to get a sample from the new case OZAKI is launching on the market. Quite similar to smart case but a lot more options as positioning... offer both landscape and portrait mode. So you got a versatile protective smart case with the extra of design, personality and add-ons (stylus included).
    => check their website ozakiverse.com

    I received the iCoat Slim-Y+ samples. Colors and patterns look quite attractive...

    They also propose 2 other products but different options: leather skins, color charts and extra (Stylus).

    Overall product is nice, colors are bright and the leather covers attractive.
    Couldn't make my mind as regards which one I should get at first...

    Slim size vs. iPad weight - Here’s one reason you do not want to choose the wrong case for your third-generation Apple iPad: no matter how the new iPad blows everything with its latest features and technologies, it has surprisingly gained weight! And so you just want to find the best solution to avoid adding extra-weight to your iPad while you are on the move.

    Portrait/landscape mode - I definitely can’t imagine how much time I have spent to play with case since I have it on my desk! Perhaps needed something to make my hands busy while thinking!
    Apart from allowing you to quickly create a handy stand like any smart cover does, it exceeds the limit and gives the freedom to stand your iPad either in a landscape or portrait mode, and that in just one simple motion, one simple flip.
    -> Portrait mode for any presentation, documents, pictures viewing, …
    -> Smart cover mode
    -> Landscape mode: four different angles – four different ways to display your iPad

    Stable platform. If you are a fast writer, heavy touching game player,the iPad doesn't move an inch even I did try the heavy typing! Their new case provides you the freedom to display, view, work on your content – just to name a few things - easily, effortlessly and i should say with some comfort !

    Add-ons: detachable stylus holder, slid-in/slid-out extra stylus
    Given how often I used pen for presentations, reports prior to the arrival of iPad into my life, it was almost impossible to imagine ever needing a stylus for my iPad. Meanwhile it’s also a way to give my fingers a rest!
    As business person, I’m always on the move, and so what I was missing in any smart case available on the market was one which would include a stylus but having thought it has to be placed with strategy, in order not to take too much place, or to be annoying as apart from the case and occasionally embellishing the case.
    Well here you got a simple concept of slid-in/slid-out stylus in the back, with the option of interchangeable add-ons, depending on your mood, use and need. Simple as it looks but makes a big difference to me. Got my tools with me anywhere anytime!

    Design/personality: 8 different patterned leather covers for their product called Slim-Y+. As Apple fan, I want some difference, unique design, i don't want to sit there and see the same case next to me!
    It comes in eight unique patterned leather cover, each coating delivering a rich feel, unique edge with durable protection. The inner cover is also patterned making the display look like a beautiful colorful landscape! Each cover has its own personality, tuning a light smooth color with a unique pattern. Kinda piece of Art!

    Overall is well thought and conceived. so far so good.
    I used OtterBox defender... as for the durability of Slim-Y compared to OtterBox, I would not further comment... i guess their targets are very different, one claim long term use, the other one claim concept of multi-angle and personality. so if you want something durable to time, heavy use, regular travels, etc. you may consider another product. Slim-Y is more an response to needs of having handy stand with option of landscape & portrait modes, with a touch of personality/denotation.
    Hope that helps!


    Thank you for the review and photos. Do you (and/or others) know where I can buy one in the UK or US? Perhaps I need to wait a tad longer but I've not had any luck thus far. Thanks in advance.
