    Thats great. I will be interested with your thoughts.
    Your right, for this money you can't go wrong. I was waiting for the Speck case backs to come out but when all said and done these are just plastic case backs. As long as they fit snug and the cut outs are right then all is good and if they don't all I have lost is the price of a cup of coffee!

    I do want to get a full case eventually anyway but it has to be slim like the OEM full case Apple offer. Just knowing how things work though I just do not want to plonk down $100 for something that is sure to be discounted in the January sales in a couple of months so this will do for now.

    I also ordered a full origami folding case with Smart Cover last week for .01 plus 4.98 shipping! This deal was also posted here via Amazon. That one has not arrived yet. In the meantime I am using the costly Apple Smart Cover.....$39!

    With every iPad and iPhone I have owned I protected it in an Otterbox Defender case. I know many say it makes the idevice too bulky but I like the protection it provides. As soon as they come out with one for the Air it too will get one

    I received the Fintie case in red today. Friday until Tuesday--decent shipping time. The case is certainly worth the $11 I paid with shipping. It will do just fine until I find the case I really want. I've had a number of other cases after 2 other Ipads including the Logitech ultrathin keyboard case but I plan to buy a light, very basic case this time with good viewing angles (not the folding cover), auto off/on cover and something other than black LOL. I looked at Targus, Griffin and Belkin Air covers today at Best Buy when I went to buy another USB to Lightning cable and they were all in black for now.

    So, I can recommend this case--all port openings are correct, auto cover works fine as well as magnet is strong enough to keep cover closed, it folds and is okay for 2 viewing angles--and its not too bad looking in red faux leather with nice probably microfiber inside against screen.

    Ipad air case

    I went ahead and ordered the rooCase slimshell origami from Amazon for $10 to tide me over until Native Union comes out with a redesigned Gripster. It hasn't shipped yet so for now I am using the Smart Cover, which should be compatible with Gripster if/when it comes out. I prefer a case that easily converts to a stand for portrait and landscape. The rooCase fits the bill, but does not offer as many adjustments as the Gripster. Come ON, Native Union... Hurry up!

    I'm looking at three rotating cases on Amazon (Finte, Ionic, and Khomo) thinking that the "rotating" feature would come in handy. The prices are pretty close and the cases look almost identical. Some of the reviews on all three state that the tablet won't stay upright in the provided grooves. This is my first Ipad and my questions are: is having the case "rotate" a worthwhile feature and are there any decent looking cases that hold the Ipad securely in the grooves. Thanks in advance for any guidance....

    My sister has one like that for her iPad mini and she says it does not stay secure in the grooves. Personally, I don't like how the cover sticks out from the bottom when you're using it as a stand. Have you looked at the origami cases? I think they are a better design, but it's all a matter of preference.

    That's the one I have on order for $4.99. Can't beat that price! I ordered it before I even got the Air when I saw it for .01 plus shipping. LOL

    I actually went with the Fintie soft or folio case and just got it yesterday. I really like it and it was under ten bucks to my door. Hard to beat that. It folds and sits securely at any angle which was my main concern. I tried a few expensive cases and was rather disappointed in both of them.

    Thanks for the input. The reviews on the Roo Origami look good and it looks like I can get it to stand in portrait or landscape without slipping out of the grooves as with the cases I mentioned. Looks like the winner....Thanks again!
