Was just wondering how it actually fits, feels, etc. The recent independent test got me thinking about it, but the price is a little steep...

I'm curious about this case, too. I travel extensively and need my iPad to stay reliably connected for work. Anything that helps in that regard, even slightly, is good. Ars Technica just did a review and Pong's claims (re: improved 3G signal strength compared to other cases) held up. It's the first I'd heard about the iPad having a proximity sensor. Wonder if other case makers are now going to start leaving that area exposed. Interesting stuff.

Edit: Here's Pong's site (http://pongresearch.com/ipad2.html).

I'm wondering about this case as well. I really like the multiple folding angles. Does anybody know if there are others on the market like this? I'm not as concerned with the rfi shielding as much as the multiple folding cover.

Thanks

It looks interesting. However, i wonder if when folded back and against its self if the magnates in the cover put the ipad into sleep mode. If that's the case I would not be interested in that case @ $99
