Have you guys seen Pad & Quill's new case for iPad 2. It's a book style case AND stand. I just preordered. I have an Octavo and love it. The folks at P&Q are awesome. Check it out.

I like it and own a P&Q now - terrific case. But I need a bookcase style that allows a better typing position like the old ipad1 case or the smartcover. Also this has no stylus holder which I have to have now. I applaud them for moving the style of the bookcase forward.

I enjoy my P&Q so much I had to by it. I had been looking for a book style case at doubled as a stand. This meets all my requiremens.

Not sure if you should cancel your portenzo order, but I think this case is gonna be awesome.

This looks really great. Please post a review when you get yours, Jasmynsway!

I've already got both a Portenzo and a Dodocase, and like both very much-- but I would love the stand feature this one has. I agree with glen-- it's nice to see some innovations in the bookcase style.

the other nice thing about P&Q is there is no need for emails and drama - they ship in a very reasonable time....once released, like 2 weeks or less is my experience...

hmm, is it me or do the covers look thicker than the octavo?

I looked at that. I'm also wondering about the material that binds then case edge closest to the volume toggle. I figured I'd get it and if I didn't like it return it. I'll post pics and videos when it comes.

never understood the appeal of carrying a slim tablet in a wooden box shaped like a book.

because in many business situations it looks a lot better....

I agree. It protects the iPad as well as adds a professional and distinct look. It doesn't work for me to keep the iPad naked.

I think this is true. Not everyone cares or wants to see how cool you are depending on the type of work you do. There are always tons of meetings to go to and staying low key and productive can be a good thing.

I don't have the book like case but may consider one.

it's not - it's a known company here with a new product..and he did not use the word AWESOME or BEST CASE in the title and publish some link to a POS foreign pacific rim company...

I'm not a spammer. I figured I'd mention that P&Q had a new case out since this is the accessories sections of the forum and I've learned of new products through similar posts by others. It might also be helpful check a member's other posts before making such an accusation.

hmm, I hardly think Pad & Quill is some new "unknown" brand around here.

I see that shipping begins on 6/23. I would love to hear reviews of this case once it's shipped out.
