    What case do you recommend for the new iPad 3?

    Can you share the experience that you are having with your case?

    Cheers!

    I purchased a Incipio smart feather case for my iPad 3. Fast shipping and it fits well. I like how it fits with my smart cover. Back is a bit slippery since its smooth and it shows every finger print, but so does the iPad. There is a discount code available. Search google for it.

    Question is... What kind of case are you looking for? A folio? Back cover? Sleeve? Pouch? Hard case?

    I wonder if you could put a skin on the back cover to give it a little bit more grip, padding and reduced finger prints?

    I used to be all thumbs now I'm all gums I love dictating my posts!

    No expert here; however, I did answer a question about the Clam Case in "case" anyone is interested. The new IPad works perfectly in the Clam Case for the IPad 2. Just received it today and it is as functional as I hoped. It may only work a day for all I know but right this moment, it is outstanding!

    Anyone with experience on the new Otterbox Defender for the iPad 3? Seems they've really improved on the design, but still pretty pricey.

    As with my iPad 2, I use the Cimo thin TPU case, black (they also have an "S" version, but it's more flexible material). Nothing fancy but looks good, works great and is inexpensive. For iPad 2, it's $6 shipped, for iPad 3, it's $13 shipped, though they're really the same exact thing except for 1) allowance for thickness and 2) slight movement of rear camera hole. The iPad 2 case DOES fit, albeit a bit tightly. Either way, gives just enough grip and comfort for handling plus fully compatible with the Smart Cover without adding bulk.

    Vaja - Leather Products

    I have used a Vaja Case on my iPhone for several years now. Love it.

    I just purchased the Vaja "Smart Grip for New Ipad W/Smart Cover. Black with the Caterina Rosso interior. The same as my iPhone Case. :)

    I purchased the new otter box case for my new iPad. It is a excellent case and offers extreme protection. One of the draw backs is the amount of bulk it adds but if that doesn't bother you and you want the best protection then get the otter box. One other issue that I noticed is that for some reason the cover is suppose to lock and unlock the iPad it doesn't work.

    The reason the OtterBox magnet doesn't work is because Apple on the iPad 3 made the magnet unlock switch polarity sensitive. Apple didn't tell the manufacturers of aftermarket cases this. So, since they randomly placed the magnets in them you have a 50-50 chance that they installed it with the polarity correct. If you can gain access to the compartment that houses the magnet on the OtterBox and you flip the magnet around, it should work. Either that or take it back and get a new one under replacement warranty and get one of the 50% that do work.

    I like the 360 cases design, but do they make one that will snap in place to make it not swivel or stay in one orientation. The 360 is great when it sits on a desk....but when I am holding it in my hand it flops all around.
