That was one of my favorite features of the original case, that you could fold it back out of the way nicely.

I didn't see any pictures/video where they do this. In fact, they just remove the case.

Has anyone seen any pics/vid where the case is folded back like the iPad1 case?

I would like to know this also. Dont like the thought of my iPad sliding around on a table on its bare back.

I'm more thinking about holding it. I don't want to have to take the cover off every time I want to use it.

How often does your iPad slide around a table? I've yet to see mine actually slide around:confused:

From the looks of the video on here it does fold back like the first one.

Do you use you iPad on a desk without a case regularly? Or do you set it down ever so gently every time and make sure that it doesnt move at all while you use it?

It moves

This is what I really want to know too, from the Gizmodo video it does look like it folds back but it's not very clear. Hopefully some better video of this will come out.

I liked that the original case had some padding for the top/sides but it did feel rather bulky. I was considering for the iPad2 going with those clear protectors and just being careful (I'm not one to drop things in general).

This looks like a nice compromise. The only thing is potentially scratching it while sliding it around with the cover closed. Probably go with one of those clear protectors for the back with a camera hole for piece of mind.

It looks pretty clear to me. The ipad was flat on the table and i didnt even notice that it had the case on it. And she picked it up and flipped the case over.

Just saw the video again and yes you're right! Great news.

I'm sold on the cover now that I see that it folds back all the way, but a little hesitant to get the leather one becuase of the note on :apple: site...(*The leather Smart Cover is crafted from high-quality, naturally treated material that gets its color from a rich aniline dye. Some color may rub off during use.)

I wonder what this will be like/what kind of affect it will have..

Ever own leather boots or shoes or belts?

Personally if I were going for an ipad2, I wouldn't pay the premium for the leather cover and thus I'd never have to worry about the question in the first place. ;). (while a fine machine, im in no hurry to upgrade as the major changes aren't iareas that are of significant importance to me.)
