I was just wondering if anybody had seen any cases yet for ipad 2?

and does the ipad come with its own dedicated charger or do i have to plug in to my MBP everytime?

Probably not given the fact that the iPad 2 isn't out yet.

Amazon has a couple of the Targus cases in stock right now. With Prime 2-day shipping you could have the case a full day before you get the iPad. :D

I also just found that Handhelditems.com has some TPU and Silicone cases available for the iPad 2. Shows in stock and ready to ship.

$10 for a TPU case, and I bet there is a coupon code out there somewhere.

Just ordered the Targus 360 case. I just don't want to start out with nothing on the Ipad 2. This along with the iChair case should be all I need.

It comes with an adapter for the USB so you don't have to plug it in to your MBP everytime.

I ordered an Incase Sleeve via eBay last week and it arrived yesterday. I'm satisfied with that until I see more cases.

Picked up the TPU case! $10 shipped isn't too bad. Gives me something to start with at least.

This may be a stupid question, but are we sure of the fitment of these cases? Does Apple let some case manufacturers have a sneak peak in order to design a case that will fit?

I don't want to order it and then it not fit. Even at $10.

Yes, http://colcasac.com already has a few sleeves compatible with the Smart Covers as well.

I bought the Targus 360 Stand/Case from Amazon on Saturday and to my delight, with 2-day shipping, it arrived yesterday (Monday, March 7th). It looks like it's going to be a great case. The rotating mechanism seems to work well and I really like the blue interior.

Excellent, mine should be in Thursday. I feel much better having a solid case option for day 1.

Ordered mine Sunday night. Still waiting for shipping notification from Amazon :(. On the positive side applied my points to the purchase and only paid $25 for it ;)

I've been looking around and I'm thinking I'll go with this one:

The last iteration (for the original iPad) was highly praised:

I like the idea of thin (not bulky), professional, and flexible.

That seems to be a really popular design for iPad cases, but I don't like it. I just don't like the cases that have half of the back come off in landscape view.

It looks like DODOcase just released (for pre-order) their iPad 2 case.

Does the case fold flat, for handheld use? It doesn't show in any of the pictures I've seen online.

The Grove Bamboo Case (www.grovemade.com) has a lovely bamboo casing, & smart cover! I'm definitely considering it. I have one for my iPhone. The only problem I have with it is the lack of protection. It's beautiful, but breaks easily.

I have to say those started to grow on me. I would assume that you could pre-order now and then customize later once they have that part of the site working. Would like to see more pix. Tough to get a complete picture of the design.

That's what they do. Or that's how it worked for the iPhone, at least.

If you're really interested in it, I'd suggest pre-ordering.I preordered my iPhone case, & it still took around 10 weeks to get it in. It's not a product for the impatient. :rolleyes:

If you don't like it, you can always sell it. I'm sure someone on here or eBay would purchase it.

I LOVED the one I had for the iPhone. I used it for a good two months. Unfortunately, I dropped my phone & the bottom piece doesn't fit perfectly anymore. It's a pain, so I rarely ever use it.

Overall, I think it's a remarkable product. I love the fact that they're all handmade.

Just FYI the TPU cases for the iPad 2 are now 6.99 on handhelditems.com and also work with the coupon code ipadcases20. Super cheap!

Ordered one for my mom's ipad2.
