Incipio Flagship Folio

Anyone know when this case is coming out? Looks like it has all I'm looking for... carbon fiber, slim, doesn't cover the bezel. Emailed Incipio but haven't heard back...

Been through all the alternatives (even ordered the Scosche, which doesn't fit, and they've since taken it off the site for the new iPad ) and I'm praying that this one is the one finally...

Thanks!

Haven't heard of this one before, but it looks really nice. I'm still waiting to find my perfect case. I was hoping Speck would come out with something that meets all my criteria. This is definitely intriguing. I'll be checking for updates on this one!

Why isn't there any information on incipio's website? Will they offer it as well or are they using alternate distribution methods?

Message(S) from Incipio

I got two messages from Incipio's customer support yesterday... one in response to an email I sent, one in response to live support.

One person said end of April, early May for the Flagship Folio, the other said early May.

I can't wait. I think this case meets all of my needs. (Fingers crossed!)

Incipio Flagship Folio

Just started seeing early reviews of this case, and lo and behold, it appears to be in stock at Amazon. I ordered one and will update when it comes in

They added the Flagship Folio to their website.

Was going to order this but it looks to add too much weight for my liking at almost 13oz that's over 1/2 a pound.

Looks like the STM Grip's rich uncle.

At 12 oz, definitely. I weighed the STM Grip in another thread, and it was around 8 oz.

I imagine it's the hinge mechanism that makes it heavier. It actually looks like a nice case, but I remember how much I hated the rigid clasp on the front of the Grip poking into my hand in book mode. Looks like this'd have the same problem.

BTW, hitting Google Shopper shows one five-star-rated merchant with it at $41, if you're willing to wait for their shipment to come in. Looks legit to me.

semi tricky method of setting up ,but excellent typing position
gets looks, being nice simulated CF
great drop protection
minor overweight, but possible "perfect" case 4 me...

Just an update on this case...after using it for business this weekend, I am sold on this unit. it gets looks, has the best protection I have had yet and offers great positions for the pad. If the alum hinge holds out and once you master how it sets up, it beats the other 15 cases I own for every situation I can put the pad in; business, travel, personal and home....a winner here.

how do you feel about its bulkiness and weight?

Doesn't bother me in the least ....I see no difference between 8 ounces and 12 oz when using it.... I'm not going on a hike with it....

I agree with you. I've only had this case for a day, but I think its the one for me. I've tried about 15 other cases including the STM Grip, Switcheasy Canvas, multiple backs for smart covers, The various Targus cases, ect. This one addresses all my issues. The only downside is it is a little heavy, but all these folio style cases are.

Book mode doesn't bother me. Each side has a bump when the case is folded back, one for the hinge and one for the clasp. The case will lay flat because the bumps are about the same size if you follow me.

Typing positions are excellent. The case has a lot of angles, because if you examine the picture above you can see that the hinge mechanism is actually two parts. Depending on which way you flip that little part you can get a different angle. The lowest angle can be adjusted about a half inch up or down just by flipping that thing over. Hope this helps.

How does it matter as long as it "gets looks"?
