The sound really IS amazing for such a small speaker box. Bass is full and treble is crisp. And the volume can get surprisingly loud. It's a well made, classy looking device. It's rubber coated with a distinct grill on the front. Seemed durable, highly portable, and the battery holds a charge up to 8 hours with constant use. It could also be used as a speakerphone device (a high quality one at that). As far as ease of use, it has a simple interface with only 3 buttons on top.
Drawbacks I can think of:
Bluetooth in general is not the most reliable connectivity method. Reviews online stated no problems losing connectivity (Jawbone says good up to 33 feet), but had some minor issues when it came to pairing different devices which were resolved with re-pairing.
Low quality audio sources (low bitrate music) sound worse on the Jambox, but conversely, high quality music sounds just as good as the bigger speakers.
$199 price tag. It's a premium item for that price, but looks like Jawbone hasn't cut any corners in terms of quality. I'm trying to decide if I should plunk down my money for this or a heavy duty case and a BT keyboard + apps...
Added Tucano products.
The Vedo and Magico cases have a magnet on the back. So if you're sick of waiting for the Belkin snap shield secure to be released... Its a good alternative. Vedo is TPU and Magico is the hard plastic version like the Belkin.

The Yoobao case is proper soft genuine leather, infact they even supply a small leather sample in the box, it smells the real thing too. I've already bought a few folio case both for our iPad 1 and 2 so far for my new iPad 3, so what makes this case dfferent from the others.
Well the quality of the leather and stitching is very good quality indeed, I like folio type cases because they tend to give decent protection, but they can be a little bulky, I have a couple of Belkin cases like that. This case does not add much bulk to the iPad 3 at all, I also like the fact the front and back are stitched right along the edge all the way round which serves as a buffer in the event the iPad ever got dropped. Therefore the whole of the iPad is covered except for the area where the access cutouts are, meaning all of iPads vulerable edge is covered completely. The cutouts are accurately done too, with all of them smack on in the right places.. the actual back has been slightly stretched during it's manufacture so the case follows the iPads contours perfectly.
There are a few Ebay sellers still selling the iPad 2 version of this case, so beware, and make sure if you want this case to work with the iPad 3, that the seller is indeed selling the latest iPad 3 version. The seller I ordered off confirmed it was the lastest version, as he stated in his listing, and I can confirm that the auto sleep function works every time.. no probs at all. Price BTW was £29.99 inc free 1st class delivery. I received mine next day.
The stand when the case is folded is pretty stable too, so the fact it's well made, good quality real leather, which offers good protection without adding much bulk really ticks all the boxes for me. So much so, I'm going to see if they do one similiar for my wifes iPad 1.
So as you may have gathered.. for once..I'm actually very pleased with a purchase from Ebay, though I believe these cases are sold at retail outlets too.
Pics below don't do the case justice...

It looks very nice. Reminds me of the Bear Motion case. I would order one but it is rather pricey.

It seem that here in the UK anyway.. one can discribe something as being genuine leather as long as it has one tiny bit of real leather somewhere, or it contains a tiny percentage of leather.. which is mis-leading IMO.
One of the problems I've found having bought quite a few, you can't tell what their really like until you actually see one. I left a seller on Ebay a negative last week, because the cheap so called genuine leather case he was selling for £10 turned out to be a type of sprayed on black plastic film on top of cardboard, it really was utter rubbish. I can't sell it on as I would'nt like someone to do it to me, I've wrote it off. I suppose I could have put a Paypal claim in, & returned it.. but just not worth the hasstle. It was the 1st negative I've ever left anyone.. though the sellers attitude had much to be desired. :-(
I think everyone has their own personal preferences when it comes to cases like everything else, it would be sad if we were all the same..lol but I think when one spends £659 on a iPad 3 it justifies spending a little on the case.
Occasionally Play.com have some superb deals with free delivery when they are clearing stock, I bought 2 Cygnett iPad 1 folio cases from them recently for the wifes iPad.. superb value, @ £3 each, just because it was such a good deal (I didn't even need them..lol) so total cost inc delivery £6, BTW they normally retail for £34, so a excellent deal.. sadly no such deals on iPad 3 cases as yet..lol

Thanks for the pics lunar! Looks like a solid case from the looks for it
I did however saw the pictures on amazon from someone. I question the quality of the leather material. Check out the pictures that have notes on them

Got to pay to play if you want to go with eBay that's always a risk when it comes to generic cases.
I was looking at yoobao's website. They got some nice stuff. I'll get them added later on today!
