    Just like the iPhone, I'm sure we will have a HUGE selection of cases for the iSlate. This thread will be dedicated to all case reviews! So post your pics, thoughts, opinions, questions in here.

    Looking forward to a lot of activity in this particular thread. Cases and covers are what distinguish an owner and make a personal statement. If Apple history has any bearing, it should be a real winner. I'm anticipating some awesome products being introduced here! :) cuskit

    Yeap,

    this one will be really interesting. Cases have to cover the back of the iSlate,
    have to somehow cover the screen, though providing full functionallity.

    WIll fun to see if Seidio does some!

    Indeed. :) Cases and pouches and the like are all what distinguish those who love their devices to those who just have devices. Those who love their devices know. :D

    I like the look of the case shown at the announcement, but have a question I haven't seen answered... I know the cover flips back to form a stand for either watching video, etc. or to elevate the back for easier typing and such. But... Will it fold flat against the back so it's not a major pain to hold like a book?

    Has anyone found anything on this, or seen photos that would clarify?

    Will definitely be buying a case to protect my iPad. It will have to be something real cool but not too expensive. The bad thing is that sometimes when you buy something online it doesn't look anything like the photo or review. So hopefully the Apple store will have some cases that we can check out.

    Ipad case delivery time

    Far as i know , at the launch you will have only the apple if they have enough, yet i have 7 models for Ipad under registration in the Apple store (online & brick and mortar) but due to the production time and delivery they will have nothing in shop , i just discuss this point with the chief buyer of europa and we both agree, we cannot catch the first timing :)

    while i can't say for sure, i would be willing to bet a TON of money that it will not be a problem. Apple is not the type of company that would not consider that. That is what makes them great.

    It's funny that shops from all over the world already claiming they have the best cases for the iPad already, when well, I dunno, I aint seen one released yet, I thought it would be like pre-order now, and receive it early April or something.

    Makes me wonder about the fit of the cases, when they're out so early, even before the actual device.

    I mean they get some conceptual measurements on the website, but still, without the actual real device, it's kinda gonna be a little off in fit right?

    Not bad design, but i think they need to spend a little more to understand the use the customer will have with the Ipad ....

    in the coming few days i will publish in exclusivity for our member some of the bag and accessory we are developing , i believe many will like it

    wouldn't the big companys have been aloud to test it? like belkin or whatever, they make a lot of cases and apple prob wouldn't mind them testing cases out before they ship, they have already been anounced anyway

    I bought a Vera Bradley mini laptop case for my preordered ipad. I know this will send the ipad purist into orbit, but it is quite cute. According to apples specs, it should fit nicely. It has a hard shell,but has velcro bars that adjust for a proper fit. It was about $40-$50.

    The first thing to mind when I saw the official Apple protective case, was it reminded me of those old school 3-ring notebook binders, the ones that were made of plastic and the more you opened or closed them, eventually the edges or folds started to tear.

    [​IMG]

    Hopefully this case ( I pre ordered one from Apple) will stand up to the daily use and not be a cumbersome one to use. I ordered it more as a stand for viewing or watching video when the keyboard dock is not near, rather than as a protective cover.

    I'm one of those who likes my iPhones native in my hand and carried them in holsters on my belt, which most often wont work with a protective plastic case on the phone and still fit into your carrying holster. Plus I think the iPhones were sexy and thin enough of a design already without adding some form of bulk to them by using a protective case. I saw someone say earlier, that those who "love" their device know it and will use these covers for protecting them.
    Sorry, but that made me laugh, I have seen numerous users bring in iPhones or Touches which were ruined from dropping, stepping on, or drowning their device. Nothing most cases or even using natively would have curbed most of the time. It's more rather how you think when using it, and not being side tracked or paying attention, almost like the more you worry about damaging your gadget the more apt you are to achieve it.

    I think it's more of a personalization of the device or a statement, other than actual protection for most people. If you "love" your device so much you will know how to take care of it and use it responsibly without the need for such protective coverings. Are some stylish?, yes, but so is the original design all by itself.

    Im also more apt to use a carry tote or sleeve than I am to use something that would form fit the device and make it more bulk than original, especially some of the cheap looking yet expensive coverings out there.

    This site has some good close-up pictures of the Apple ipad case.

    AbblePC, I think you might be right; looks like the 3-ring binders we use at work. :D

    All the best.

    I think it would be a good idea to get the official binder case regardless of whether you plan on getting a courier bag or sleeve for it.
