    Under "Book-Like Case", you should include Treegloo, Portenzo and Pad and Quill.

    Under "Folio", you should include Oberon Design (one of the few which are actually handmade-to-order using genuine leather.)

    And if the pictures on Dodo's iPad2 case are any indication, it is missing the rear camera port (i.e. epic design fail.)

    It'll be good if we could have some pictures to go along with them too. ;)

    I bought one of the Belkin ones - the slim folio stand. Not happy with it. Looked like they just took the iPad 1 cover and cut the holes for the camera and speakers. It doesn't fit in properly.

    The only issue with adding pictures is it would double the amount of scrolling to get through the list. I tried to use the html feature to put it in a table but it didn't work. not sure what I was doing wrong but that would have allowed me to put the pictures on the right and not effect scrolling.

    It's not released yet either, but the Ottterbox Defender for iPad 2 should be added - perhaps under "other".

    Great Job!! But VERY limited for the person (me) who wants something like Treegloo, DoDo WITH the option of using my Smart Cover. But hats off to you for the great job of compiling all of the available options.

    I'm guessing companies probably think the smart cover would be redundant in a book-like case since it protects the screen already.

    Your best seems to be grove who is innovating the smart cover with a detachable bamboo backing, sexi journal look if you ask me.

    Yes, you are right, BUT I purchased it already and I LOVE IT!!! In my twisted little world that I reside in, it doesn't seem right to purchase "second best" (their smart cover versions) when I already have the best (the original) the one that was made specifically for my baby. But again, I'm the only occupant on this island :)

    Treegloo and grove are getting awesome first hand fb reviews. Do know that grovemade does offer a full warranty.

    Sorry I wasn't as descript as necessary. I was texting in class. Shh

    Grovemade has a great product N the guys seem to work very hard. However, I guess because they are still little, they only offer 50% credit towards next item. It's more like a membership gimmick. That was a slight turn off for me. I know that it's a special product but I believe one should stand behind their products.
