    I don't think they are out in the wild yet.

    Yeash they are, I got one the first day! According to apple.com they werent supposed to be out until "late april" but they were sitting right there when I was lead to the register.

    Its a good case, snug fit and easy to set up for standing or typing! Very handy and gives great screen protection! I thought it was gonna be more plastic to the touch but it feels more gripfriendly than anything. Only one thing though, it stains r e a l l y easy so make sure you didnt pick your nose or had a cheeseburger berfore you pick it up!

    Definitly a good buy!

    I picked one up at the apple store Saturday morning when I got my iPad and put it on before I even turned it on the first time. It definitely gives a nice, secure grip. It may not be the best option out there for everyone, but I like it.

    I don't like the Apple binder cover. I will be replacing this one very soon. The sharp edges on the three sides where the seams are glued or joined bother me . right now it's better then nothing and t he only thing available. Of course, this will change very soon. In fact we are starting to see more and more selections commming out. I just ordered a gell cover for backup

    I ordered one with my 3G pre-order but my goal is to eventually get the same type but in leather. Now that the manufacturers actually have a real ipad to model there should be lots of options available by the time I get my 3G in "Late April".

    I bought the Apple binder cover also. At first I did not like it. It is cumbersome to take it out to set it in the dock-the Apple dock should have been designed to hold the Ipad with the cover on it. It is growing on me. The other critique is that it does not sit up like it is supposed to on a hard surface-that piece is not rigid enough to support it. I would not trust it to hold it up without it falling over and potentially hitting the floor (not good).

    It does everything I want it to do -- I'm sure we will see many third party ones with extra's to hold extra stuff but I have no interest in making the IPAD+CASE as large as my laptop or even my slate tablet.

    IPAD must have a cover like this to be usable IMO --- Just to hold on to it while Ereading etc... it gives you a place to put your finger (behind the cover). I'm glad that I did not pick up a dock because I would not want to have to remove the cover very often - its a tight /good fit.

    Check out the cases at SENA.Com. They are expensive, but I expect them to be well worth the cost. I have previously used there products and they are wonderful.

    I got the apple and it is fine. I am sure there will be better ones on the market soon. At least it is protected right now.

    I bought the apple case on April 3rd, the same day that I bought my iPad. I really like it. As others have said it is a very snug fit.

    You should get a case if you don't want any scratches on your ipad. Especially the back of it.
