    Originally there was black and red in the regular covers, but it appears that they did not sell that well. I was at the AT&T store and they still had a new one left over in their odds and ends drawer. If I had not just bought one, I would have tried to bargain for it.

    I found some smart cover seller on eBay. They get good reviews for $12.79 shipped. Generic of course. Worth a try or should I go for official?

    How about a link?

    Ok...I found a seller on the main page. I ordered a purple one. At $11.50, it is worth a shot to have different colors. These are synthetic, but that is fine.

    I originally got the the black leather smart cover and that was a big mistake. The leather ones get dirty, scratch easily and just look like crap just after a couple weeks. Cannot clean them either. The non leather ones are great. Clean easily and look like new for a long time. Go with the non-leather ones. I agree the colors for the leather ones are better but I just went with the dark grey one. Looks great.

    I just ordered a red PU leather from the seller I pasted earlier. We shall see, if it doesn't work out all I paid was $1.04 out of pocket.

    And we can compare notes to let others know if these "cheap" SCs are worth the considerably less money relatively to the Apple SCs.
