So I've been trying to look for a good case for my 3; something that I can use for carrying around to class and just for daily transport...
I know a case for the 2 isn't going to work due to the dimensions of it. I have a Belkin Snap Shield and smart cover on my 3 which I don't want to take off.
So I got the Targus Z-case which is made for the 1.
Here are the dimensions of the 1 and 3
243 mm (h)
190 mm (w)
241 mm (h)
186 mm (w)
9.4 mm (d)

So it is pretty much a perfect fit. The difference in depth is nothing. It won't move around; since the "grippiness" of the polyurethane smart cover and plastic finish on the snap shield really clings to the suede-like fabric that is lined inside the case. The cover is held closed by two strong magnets.
Measurement photos I took is only depth. That was the only thing I was most worried about at the time of purchase.
Originally purchased from amazon for $20 shipped. But it came damaged.. the back has a giant crease in it like someone stepped on it. Didn't come in the original box either. Will be returning it.
However, a user in my accessories thread he/she bought theirs from tjmax.. So I went there and found a couple for $12. Game.
One last thing.. my NewTrent Limir stylus doesn't fit inside. I can't close the cover with it shoved inside of the case. Only bummer. Guess it'll go in my pocket.

Add about.. 3mm due to the bottom of the ruler.
Add about 3mm. Measured up to the inside edge of the case.
