I googled "Belkin Grip Vue iPad 2" the other day and got a hit. I go to the page and there it was. The next day it had been removed from the site.

Will there or won't there be a refresh of the Grip Vue for the iPad 2?

I looooved it for my iPad 1 and would like to carry on the tradition for this year's rendition.

This is probably what you found: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:vxNCFbNTKdEJ:www.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process%3FProduct_Id%3D543063+/search%3Fhl%3Den%26q%3D%2Bsite:belkin.com%2BBelkin%2BGrip%2BVue%2BiPad%2B2&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&source=www.google.com

At last years iPad 1 launch there were several offerings from both Belkin and Incase in the store, and none of these items were mentioned on the companies websites beforehand. One of those items was the Belkin Grip Vue which I plan on using for the iPad 2 as well.

I am hoping that both Belkin and Incase have some options this time around as well.

I would imagine that the Grip Vue will be available, but not sure about launch. Belkin has been making the Grip Vue for other devices, so its safe to say they will continue with the iPad 2. I really hope they don't try to price it at $50 again, especially if the Targus TPU skin is available at launch is anywhere near as good at half the price.

Cool, but I don't suppose they gave a time frame?

Nice. Can't wait.

Though I may be led to keep iPad 2 naked if what they say about the aluminum back is true.

This just showed up on the Belkin UK site! It describes it as "clear" but it looks purple....

I was also very pleased with the Grip Vue for the original iPad. I came across this thread after locating and purchasing a Grip Vue. Thought I'd share.

I also considered the Targus cover, but was concerned with the Amazon user review that claimed the Targus cover would peel away the screen protector. I'm sure I could work around the issue, but never had this issue with the Grip Vue...

I found the product page for the Grip Vue for iPad 2 on Belkin UK...
http://www.belkin.com/uk/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=543641

I found that the product had been discontinued in April 2011 on this CDW page...
http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/BELKIN-GRIP-VUE-TPU-F-IPAD-2-CLEAR/2356339.aspx

I used the model numbers listed on the Belkin UK product page (F8N614cw, F8N614cwC00) to search for the Grip Vue for iPad 2 online and ended up buying it here for $32.02 USD with Royal Mail + USPS shipping to Missouri,USA...

I'm sure hoping that the new Grip Vue was designed the same as the original Grip Vue. The cut outs worked well, the raised bumps for the buttons were great, and the BELKIN logo was small and non-intrusive.

I'll try to remember to post feedback when it arrives in 10-14 days. If I haven't posted anything by 08/09, bump this thread for me. :)
