I really do, Sippy.

The Smart Cover is going to go down in the record books. Mark my words, Sippy.

Anyone know a similar case like this? They've been out of stock for a while and I need a case to go with the iPad as a gift. I really need a case with supported stand/typing.

I have had a handful of mini cases and just ordered The Ridge by Devicewear, there's so much positive feedback on it, can't imagine it not being great: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o00_s00_i00

I currently have a Joy Factory case which is great, but pricey and I'm also looking for a little more protection and better hold in the "keyboard" angle (which The Ridge seems to have).

Has anyone seen a case like this from Scosche?

http://www.scosche.com/consumer-tech/product/2676

I haven't found a case like this referenced in this thread. I got the black leather version, and I discovered it does not support the iPad's Auto Lock/Unlock. So I'm looking for others like it with the smart cover feature. I really like the way this case folds, as opposed to the other cases here.

Thanks.

i am not so confident with the quality the one of $12. I bought this $39 one for my iPad Mini and another $59 one for my iPad. both are made of durable materials. they have great pakage--wrapped with a beautiful box. i prefer the genuine leather one. You can go to amazon have a check.

I've seen many cases can be folded like this, even can be folded according to your creation. You can have a look below, are you fond of any of these?

Picked up a clear back from bestbuy made by rocketfish. $19.99. I use it with the smartcover.

Provides decent enough protection if you have it in your hand and bump it into something. I carry line around all day so this is what I was looking for. It doesn't add hardly any bulk and can be easily removed. I didn't see it on best buys website so I don't have a link. I can post pics if anyone's interested in seeing it.

I also ordered The Ridge for the same reasons. Fingers crossed--it arrives next week from eBags.

Include prices

If everyone could include prices in their posts/reviews, it would be really helpful. I'm looking for the less expensive cases before trying the "premier" cases.

Thanks!

You won't be disappointed. I just got the Ridge last week and it's awesome!! It has perfected on all the other attempts to make an ultra slim folio case. Might be the best $27 I ever spent.

I have been looking into the leather case for the new ipad, and this one seems to lack the sleep/awake cycle but overall top notch according to the review i read today. Kind of pricey, but it does all it could offer for an ipad case.

I just received and installed two Ridge cases, one for the mini and one for an iPad 2. I wasn't quite sure I got the 2 case on all the way, but I dangled it from the front cover a couple inches over a bed and shook it a bit...didn't fall out so I guess I'm good. The mini on the other hand installed with a satisfying "click". The Ridge replaces a Cygnett folio case on the 2, and it is about a 1/4 inch thinner, takes off a 1/2 inch of length and a 1/4 width. Makes the 2 much more svelte. Looks to be very nice protection without adding much weight or bulk!

Don't get the 6-8 dollar case. Mine is wrapping already and I've asked for a refund. It was made by mini suite. Next one will be a Snugg case. They win.

So true. But you know ,, my rational was I also wanted to be sure it would fit. Remember everyone buying cases before we even knew the specks. Now I feel safe getting one

I am looking for a combo case/bluetooth keyboard. There are a few available, but I'm wondering if there's a decent one that is cheaper than the $80 Belkin wants. Thanks!

Wow, that looks sweet. I was wondering who was going to come out with one. I'll have to read more and see how you use it without the keyboard.

Be careful, the Ridge, although a great case in many respects, among the best in my opinion, does NOT PROTECT your iPad corners. Does a great job of protecting every other part, and works great in enhancing the handling of the mini, but after a few weeks of the case and one minor fall of less than one foot I have dinged and scrapped ipad corners, and damaged glass. The magnet is not that strong and the flap easily looses connection after a few weeks. Wonderful design for handling the mini. Feels great, and generally a niece bit of kit. But it's not a case for offering great protection out in the world.

In my opinion it's an 'inside case' not an 'outside' one.

Wish apple made more robust stuff. It's all beautiful, but almost ephemeral. My 2 year old Nook Color looks in better shape than my 2 week old iPad mini.

Same goes for all my Apple products, and I've owned a few. Next time will buy a used pre dinged idevice.
