    Very cool looking, but really, really hard to get on! Once on, it fits like a glove giving a good grip and adds almost no extra thickness. Thanks CIMO!:)
    Two things, and I know that CIMO had no real ipad to make the mold from, the alignment of the applelogo/wifi in the back is "slightly off" and the headphone port could use a millimeter extra space to allow the headphones to be plugged in without force. But that might just be me being a little OCD! lol!

    Nice!

    Regarding the headphone jack. I have the same thing on the Apple cover. The hole needs to be just a tiny bit larger or aligned better.

    I ordered the Silicon version of their case so I'll be able to do a review soon too :)

    Thanks Max for the review and pics.

    I have the TPU cases and would not buy another one based on fit (my original post was edited now that I have tried other cases with a perfect fit). I had to make some minor adjustments because the openings did not match up properly. I also have the screen protector which works very well. Highly recommend the protector. It just takes more patience to skillfully work out the bubbles on a device of this size.

    I'll check out other accessories as they become available. A girl can never have too many accessories, ya know!

    Has anybody come across a nice silicon/rubber case that fits snug and aligns perfectly with all the buttons and headphone jack?

    Just got my contest case from cimo too. Very nice-I got the same one as Max, so nothing new to report, but I do recommend the case... Also, it fits nicely in my belkin vie case with the cimo on, so that is a big plus.

    I'am trying to learn from past experiences not to rush and buy the First Case I see and like, have a drawer full of such cases for the Touch and Classic ipods.......but's it hard.
