    Smart cover

    Agreed. Apple probably won't, but as mentioned 3rd party ones are slowly coming available. Below is a link to a list I have been compiling and trying to keep up to date. Hope it helps you find what you are looking for...

    Macloveworld iPad 2 Cases

    Glad things worked out! A user in another forum received their Viscount and their take was not as positive. The pics posted were similar to what Maclove was advertising, but it just sound like he was not happy with it in person.

    It's been a couple days since I last updated the list. The list now includes the SGP Griff and Simplism case.

    Marware Microshell for iPad 2

    There are probably other threads about the Microshell, but the one you linked is regarding the CEO which is a completely different case. :confused:

    Overdid ordering accessories - what a pain!

    Incase has something like what you are describing, Origami Workstation for iPad and Wireless Keyboard : Products By Incase. I saw it at Best Buy tonight, so there is at least one local store (if you are in the US or where ever else BB is).

    Hard-Shell Back cases that work with smart Cover!

    As far as "Brand Name" hard shell cases compatible with the smart cover there are only 3 available now... XGear Enhancer, Joy Factory SmartFit2, and some Macrumors members are reporting finding the Belkin Snap Shield at their local Best Buy. Some of have stated they have had luck calling and...

    Macloveworld iPad 2 Cases

    End to my Maclove Jumper dilemma I wrote "Jimmy" about the wrong color I was sent and the horrible fit of the case. He did not once address the color issue, but had a response about the fit: Jumper case is suit and design with smart cover .That's technical problem . Because if it's not tight...

    Joy back cover - a real joy!

    I don't have the XGear, but others that I know that have it, have reported no issue with the case easily coming off or having any type of corner support issue. My original opinion that the XGear is a better case based on coverage still stands, but that may be moot once the Enki case comes out...

    Joy back cover - a real joy!

    Not sure which video you watched, but it sounds like the very first one which featured a prototype. A few of us at Macrumors made fun of that video because not only did it look like it was popping off, but that they had to hold the iPad in the case. Whatever it was, they appeared to fix it, new...

    Joy back cover - a real joy!

    Thanks for the info. I was only speculating since I haven't tried the case yet. Not long after I posted this did I discover Enki updating their facebook page with a full back pic of the Genius case. They have managed to do what XGear, and Joy Factory failed to do... Provide full protection...

    Best Smart Cover Alternative?

    Enki updated their facebook page with a full back shot of the Genius Case. The pic displays FULL COVERAGE (minus cut-out for smart cover), meaning top and bottom! That is very promising and as long as there aren't any negative surprises, this could easily become the best Smart Cover compatible...

    Smart Cover Compatible Cases List

    I updated the list to include the XGear Flexible Shield case. It recently popped up on their site, and appears to be another TPU smart cover compatible case.

    Joy back cover - a real joy!

    No, it's a polycarbonate hard shell similar to the SmartFit2. I don't know why they have the crease/cut in the corner, but I imagine it helps with the overall cut allowing them to provide more coverage than the Joy Factory. If you go to XGear's site they have youtube videos where they show how...

    Looking for case that works with following already on iPad2

    Guess I misunderstood. When I think "case" I think of something that goes on the iPad. To me, and envelope style, something the iPad goes in, would be a sleeve. If that's the case (no pun intended), then as previously stated, there are a ton of choices because usually iPad 1 sleeves are...

    iPad plus MacBook Air 11" carry bag

    Tom Bihn Ristretto for 11" MBA. I either saw a video, or read a thread somewhere of some one that uses this bag exactly as you described. I have the iPad version and it's a great bag. Ristretto for 11" MacBook Air: TOM BIHN

    Looking for case that works with following already on iPad2

    I have a Smart Cover compatible list on this site and below are three cases from the list that are leather. At this time, it's unknown whether or not they will fit over an iPad with a skin on the back since all three cases have not been released yet...

    Macloveworld iPad 2 Cases

    Ok, I got my Jumper today... I was pretty surprised that it showed up so quickly, but eagerness soon wore off when I opened to discover they sent me the wrong color. I had requested several times to confirm they were sending me Navy, but he never answered that question and just gave me my...

    Carrying Bag?

    Do you have a price limit you are working with? I am using the Tom Bihn Ristretto for iPad/Netbook. It's a bit pricey, but not as much as the Muzetto. It's a small bag, but still large enough to hold several items. On a regular day I carry my iPad w/case, Kindle 3 w/case, Sprint Overdrive...

    Yeah, I'm in TX. I got my tracking number from them tonight, so it's on its way. I ordered from their site and at the time it was free shipping, not sure if they changed it recently.

    Joy back cover - a real joy!

    I had a pre-order for the Smartfit2, but cancelled when I saw the additional pictures that showed both the top and bottom of the case cut-out exposing those portions of the iPad. Even though I hate the cut-out of the speaker and dock on the XGear Enhancer, IMO, the XGear has a better...

    Smart Cover Compatible Cases List

    I've added the Melko Leather Snap Cover and a site to the manufacturer. It's available at a site called Carrymobile (link below) for $59 and is available in Black, Red, and a Carbon Fiber Blue. There are no pics for the Red and Blue, but you can get an idea of the color by checking out their...

    Smart Cover Compatible Cases List

    I have also noticed this... I'm no expert, but my guess as to why the bottom is exposed on most shells is due to how close the speaker is the the 30-pin port. As for the top, my guess for that would be that it has something to do with the 3G antenna. I don't know if these cases would affect 3G...

    Smart Cover Compatible Cases List

    Another option if you are looking for a shell case is the XGear Enhancer (link in the main post) It's got most of the coverage except a small section at the bottom between the speaker and the dock port. It comes in black and clear and is just a tad more than both the Joy Factory and Enki.

    Smart Cover Compatible Cases List

    I had a Joy Factory on pre-order but cancelled it at the last minute when I noticed that the top and bottom of the case is exposed. I have an Enki on pre-order, but there still isn't enough pictures of it to determine it's coverage. However,from the pictures they have available the bottom looks...

    Smart Cover Compatible Cases List

    Yup, so far the feather will be the only case on this list that will cover the smart cover hinges. I did not mention this because I wanted to keep this just an objective list. We can definitely discuss the pros and cons of each in the comments, but I did not want to impose my opinions of each...

    Smart Cover Compatible Cases List

    Macloveworld iPad 2 Cases

    I noticed the Maclove site has been updated to let you select color for your order (At least on the Jumper and Viscount, did not check others).

    Macloveworld iPad 2 Cases

    Got a reply from Jimmy! Jimmy from Maclove wrote me back... He apologized for the delay. He stated since they offer free shipping they normally ship via Singapore Post, but stated he will ship my case via DHL today. This might work out after all. I'll keep you posted.

    Macloveworld iPad 2 Cases

    I placed an order on Sunday, 4/17 for a Jumper case. I immediately emailed him and the email address listed on the Paypal account letting them know that I would like the Jumper in Navy. I have not heard anything back and my order is still "Preparing" as well. I sent another email earlier today...

    I wrote the "owner" back on the 13th in regards to the Jumper.

    iPad 2 Screen Protectors....Any suggestions???

    I think they are useful indoors as well, just depends on the lighting situation. My office tends to be bright and I have no control over it, so it came in handy. With that said, I'll probably be trying out the clear screen protector this time around.

    iPad 2 Screen Protectors....Any suggestions???

    Anti-Glare screen protectors will make the screen look dull in comparison, but they do have their benefits. As for screen sensitivity, that does not change. I always use some sort of screen protector on my devices, and even the cheap ones off ebay don't take away from screen sensitivity. I've...

    iPad 2 Screen Protectors....Any suggestions???

    I'm going to give the myGear screen protectors a try. I'm not willing to spend $20-$30 on a single screen protector from SGP or Powersupport. I'm not necessarily the best at applying these things, so sometimes the first one does not take without air bubbles or dust spots. I ordered 2 clear and 2...

    myGear Screen Protectors?

    I was wondering if anyone had any experience with their screen protectors before? I'm leaning towards these for my iPad 2 because they come in 2 or 4 packs for a decent price. I know most on here will say to get SGP or PS, but I almost never get the first skin right and they cost a pretty penny...

    Zagg or Ghost Armor

    Zagg is horrible on touch screen devices. If you just want to protect the back then it's OK, but there are better options out there. If you want to use one of these skins on the screen then I would recommend Phantomskinz, and have also heard good things about Ghost Armor and Wrapsol...

    For those that like TPU cases - Targus TPU Skin

    I received my iPad 2 today from B&H and have had the Targus case on for a couple hours now. The packaging is pretty basic and fairly easy to open and remove the case. So no need for excessive cutting and tearing, you get right to the product! I also like that it continues the tradition of adding...
