I want a back cover WITHOUT Smart Cover integration.

For those of us who aren't worried about Gorilla Glass scratching but are worried about the aluminum scratching, there simply aren't any TPU or plastic back shells that don't have the whole left side exposed like an open wound.

The only one I've seen so far without Smart Cover consideration is the SwitchEasy NUDE and it isn't certain that they'll be making it for the The New iPad. Spoke to Jordan yesterday, he doesn't know what their plans are for now.

Anyone know of another company or cover that gives complete back coverage without any front cover in the mix for those of us who like our screens exposed 24/7?

I like the Switcheasy Nude. There isn't an iPad 3rd generation version right now, but according to customer service we could see it in a couple weeks.

Here is the iPad 2 version.... Link (http://www.switcheasy.com/product.php?product=NUDE_iPad2)

This looks like the best one of the rear non-smart cover compatible cases.

The material looks very pliable, very loose. Am looking for something with more rigidity.

Anyone come across a form-fitting back case that offers left-edge protection instead of an opening for those of us who don't use Smart Covers?

Good News:

Turns out the SwitchEasy NUDE for iPad 2 does indeed fit The New iPad. Thanks to another forum member for the tip, got mine in the mail this morning and it fits great. Finally, a clear back case without the large side opening for the Smart Cover I don't use.

Info here for those looking for complete back protection and a visible Apple design.
