    Anyone have any suggestions for a good protective case for the iPad 2? Not worried about bulk, because I have a 5 year old. I have heard of Trident and Otterbox, but wanted some opinions from the experts. Thanks

    I have a 5 year old and a 2.5 year old so I'm looking for the same kind of case. These are the ones I'm looking at. These are all made for the iPad 2. I'm just waiting to see some reviews or I can see them in person before I make a decision.

    Otterbox will be ur best bet in June when they come out. Until then maybe a body guardz zagg or stealth. Then some else else on top. Something thick n gelly. Leather won't have the shock protection you need.

    You are right. I need shock absorber for sure. I just wish that more options were available now. Thanks!

    I know dear. I haven't even gotten my iPad but I'm keeping my eyes out for secure and economic cases.

    The trident looks really protective but, it's rather large.

    Otterbox for iPad 2

    The developers said its coming. One reservation I have concerning the otterbox case is the lack of a flap. I find the undress of the otterbox for ipad1 so tedious. I was looking at a friends, and I was like whew, you have to do it just before bed because it's tiring. I hope to see new innovations in the otterbox ipad2. I know it can't be lighter and give the protection that it does, but hopefully, it can be more accessible. I would give them until june for their $100 case to drop. They like the summer time for some reason...;)

    The pop is tight so is incipio but I'm looking for that quality at a more economic price.

    They will most likely be cheaper when they become available on Amazon. The pre-order price for incipio is $32.
