    I was wondering if people could suggest me some of the best iPad2 Smart Cover alternatives. I want protection on the back, along with purchase in English Pounds (if possible).

    Post links, and state your point.

    Yep OK! If you still like the smart cover and you want somthing that covers the back, buy this Enki | We've got you covered ; i oringinally didnt like the smart cover because It didnt cover the back and i was going to buy the macally dualstand2 because it covers the back but I found this just about a week ago and i love it. It works great with smart cover!

    I've been very pleased with my smart cover in combination with a Gelaskin. http://www.gelaskins.com/ I sent them a drawing that my partner had done of one of my RPG characters and they made a very nice skin from that.

    An excellent case/cover leather and smart closing and a 2 position stand, £13 or $19 from Amazon. Not sure how to get a link in here but search Amazon for
    CaseCrown Apple iPad 2 Bold Standby case (Black) for the Apple iPad 2 Wifi / 3G Model 16GB, 32GB, 64GB

    Mmmmmm for a cover it's kinda sexy, but a bit pricey for imitation carbon fiber.

    I'm trying to figure out if the inside of the cover is microfiber. Might be worth it then. No worse than a leather smart cover at any rate.

    Two weeks till payday, and I'm tired of using my iPad bare, so the research has begun.

    I like it, if I saw it in person I'd probably be tempted to pay the bucks for it, very tempted as it is.

    [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Toblino-Leather-Folio-Convertable-Multi-angle/dp/B004TM1JBE/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1303296861&sr=8-5]Amazon.com: Toblino 2: Napa Leather iPad 2 Case (Folio Convertable Case Multi-angle Stand for Apple iPad2): Electronics[/ame]

    Protects front, back and corners ... when open quickly setups up as a stand. Looks nice, add just a bit of weight and thickness ... but all covers do.

    I really like the magnetic on/off feature. So nice.

    Cost is great.

    I like the carbon cover, but im not convinced still. I want a case where the cover can be removed, like a smart cover. could someone recommend a back-protection case that works alongside the Apple smart cover?

    Enki | We've got you covered
    but its in US and im in england, could take ages + shipping could be expensive.

    Looks like a nice cover for the back while still using the smart cover. Preorder and you also get a neoprene case. I'll have to consider this case as well.

    I ordered the Xgear clear back cover and should have it by Fri. I like the Apple Smart Cover, so this combo should give me all-around general protection. 

    I have got a full skin from www.bestskinsever.com and just use that with the smart cover, they ship to the UK and delivery is fast.
