    Question for the iPad1/2 vets here: how long will it take Zagg to come out with a IP3-specific folio product?

    Some company's may get early access to the new iPad's dimensions to have cases ready. Apple makes them sign non disclosure agreements so that they can't leak any info before the announcement.


    Apple also by now has already had iPad 3 units in the hands of select media publishers and tech news bloggers. They force non disclosure agreements and require a real high level of secrecy. However, by the time of apples announcement they would have had the device in had for at least a week or more. They will all have their reviews of the device ready and waiting for the selected date that apple says it's OK to publish. There was a report last week about 2 books already being in the amazon app store explaining the new features of the iPad 3. They of corse are not available for purchase until after apples announcement.



    If apple likes how you cover their products, they do things like this to give you early access. In return for giving you early access you get to cash it on the huge rush of people looking to purchase the how-to books or whatever it is you're selling and you will be the first on the market.

    Thanks for the info...I am definitely going to snag a Zagg folio for iPad 3 on the day of release. I love how you have the option of removing the bluetooth keyboard from the folio if you wish!

    I have held back getting a Zaggfolio for my iPad 2 because I ended up getting a keyboard for my iPad 1 and like having a keyboard but knew I was going to get an iPad HD/3 and decided to save the $100 for it. I currently use a bluetooth keyboard with my 2.

    I wouldn't be to worried. As others mentioned, I'm sure there are cases being made already. As long as there is an ipad3 coming ;-)

    Hi there. Hope you don't mind me piggybacking on yer thread. I ordered an Ipad 3 last week. Also last week I noticed Zagg had put up a Zaggfolio on their website for the New Ipad. A note below it said shipping expected 3/26-3/29 or something like that. I assumed that meant they were waiting for the Ipad to release and be sure of fit before they started selling their new and slightly larger cases. Imagine my surprise when it arrived in the mail today, then imagine my surprise when I opened it and the box said, "for Ipad 2"!

    I called Zagg immediately and they told me that it was because they didn't have any boxes that said New Ipad, but the case inside had definitely been designed for the New Ipad. Now I don't have an MBA, but wouldn't they get the boxes ready much sooner, then wait to find out what the dimensions are before selling the new cases? Of course if the Ipad fits I won't really care a whole lot, I was just wondering if anyone else smells a rat.

    A LOT of folio cases designed for the iPad 2 should work for the 3. We're talking such a small difference in thickness between the two. I scored a Beyza Executive II designed for the iPad 2 after Cases.com confirmed it would work with the three. They listed a lot of other folio type cases as well on their site as being compatible.

    I've got a pile of iPad 2 cases nearby to use on my 3. The Exec II is being mailed from Germany. I never expected it to arrive by the 16th, but I'm covered, so to speak. ;)

    I think the plastic "snap" type rear protective type cases will be the ones that don't work well with the iPad 3 because they're usually a pretty tight fit, and plastic doesn't give like leather does.

    Yeah there is no way my folio case (can't remember its name..) won't work with the iPad 3. It might be a little snug, but thats not necessarily a bad thing anyway.

    Given you can find iPad 2 cases cheap now on Amazon I'd probably look to those first rather than paying full price for a just released iPad 3 one.

    I ordered 2 of these Zaggs and I hope they did adjust them a little because when you watch almost any review the reviewer usually has a hard time getting the iPad 2 out because it's a really tight fit. If the iPad 2 was tight the new iPad will be next to impossible to remove! I plan to use the Zagg case Mon-Fri for work and a slimmer non keyboard case for the weekends.
