I saw the price somewhere -- I think around $40.00.

It's already been stated by Apple to cost 39$.
Here's a source who asked Apple, http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/reviews/entry/apple-ipad-case/

The case looks alright, but I think I'd prefer a rounder case. Plus I'm already stretched thin justifying the extra 130 for 3G.

Honestly, I think I'll just get a sleeve for it, I don't plan on using it anywhere buy sitting, and in that situation I'll take my chances with dropping it.

Yeah sorry about the lack of a poll for sometime. My internet went crazy on me. Thanks for the info.

Confirmed by several sites to be $39
Keyboard Dock - $69
Dock - $29
Camera Connection Kit - $29

The case looks kinda cheap/flimsy in these pictures, though:

Just the way the construction comes into that point..

I might hold out for an incase or the Griffin Elan Passport

I don't like the look of that construction either. Luckily, like with all Apple products, there'll be no shortage of case options available.

I need to see it in person, especially since (if I get it) I will keep it in my tapper keeper.

I thought the Apple case looked nice... The utility of it looks decent as well. Nice and slim, two ways to use it as a stand, screen cover, folds all the way around for handheld tablet use... Assuming a magnetic latch and decent construction, it looks like a good buy to me. Saying it looks cheap or flimsy is a little shortsided without actually seeing it in person.

How much did Apple's leather iphone case cost? It will be more than that.

I'm not feelin' the love for Apple's case. I'll buy the keyboard attachment, though. Hopefully Speck or some other company will make a pretty case that has a flap.

How do you figure? It's being widely reported that Apple reps have given that price.

Apple made an iPhone case? Pics?

Eh, that case doesn't look so hot. In the pictures of just the case on a white background, it looked nice, but those pics make it look overly bulky and not that good dimensional-wise. I think I'll wait for something better or possibly find out how to make my own.

I think he means that $99 leather ipod case from a long time ago. It was about the time when they came out with the $500 ski jacket.

The ipad case is stated to be $39

Admittedly that sharp-ish ridge round the perimeter looks very un-Apple, but it likely serves as a 'sacrificial' shock absorber (like a car's crumple zone) if you drop the thing on it's edge.

$40 is low enough to get folks to buy them for protection, but I can't imagine they cost anything near that to make.
