    I saw one (made by Rocket Fish) at my local best buy and boy is that thing ugly. I think the best alternative to Clamcas is the Crux 360 Case for iPad

    I think we just talked about this (except the iPad was shown in the vertical), and some (myself included) felt that it compromised the small size purpose of the iPad. What do you think makes it look "military?" It certainly isn't ruggedized!

    this probably sounds stupid, but it looks like the bomb activators on call of duty!

    Blech... yeah, I saw one of those and they are really ugly. Since everybody likes to bitch about anything that adds an ounce of weight to the iPad or any extra size, I can't believe anybody got this past focus groups and into production.

    Assuming they actually focus-grouped it... To me, this is taking a huge step backwards, design-wise.

    Didn't the Zaggmate keyboard case just win an award?

    Weird. It won a CES 2011 Design and Engineering Innovations Award, 2011 MacWorld Best of Show, and Beatweek Magazine's Keyboard of the Year. It also seems pretty well-liked by the people that have purchased them on the forum. I've never handled one myself...

    Speaking of Zaggmates, does anyone have a "discount code" for it? On the Zaggmate "checkout page" there is space to put a discount code in for some sort of deal. (sorry to hi-jack the thread)

    Yeah it is what I am using now, it is a bit clunky but you get used to it and if I want to not use keybord I just take Ipad back out, it isnt hard to do. I do like it tho works really well.
