Yoobao leather iPad 2 case (Smart Cover sleep/wake function)

Decided to create a new thread so the iPad 2 cases do not get mixed up in the original Yoobao iPad thread. This looks like the first iPad 2 case from Yoobao.

The white stitching kills me. Why do they do that? Wonder if I could use a Sharpee....

Sharpie works perfectly on white stitching. Use a fine point, but not the finest point or you'll be painting all day. Touch the tip of the pen to a single stitch and the ink automagically bleeds onto the fibers, making it black instantly. It took me about 20 minutes to do my last Yoobao case.

They would have it in red color as well, which looks great with white ipad。Is yoobao popular among apple fans, I might be thinking of bringing in if there is a strong demand.

I have had the original Yoobao leather cover for the past year, wherever I go people ask me where I got it. It's lasted incredibly well through VERY heavy usage. I think their products are incredibly well designed, and they really listen to their customers when they update their covers with new design details.

This eBay seller will have the iPad 2 version of these, in real leather, at the end of March, (i've been in email contact with him the past 2 days):

Sort of weird...these pictures all are branded "Yoobao" but the seller lists these as "Bear Motion (TM)" iPad2 cases.

I ordered one just to see whats up.....Amazon is very good about refunding your money if it turns out to be a ripoff.

Hmmmm.........my Yoobao case has their Brand name on the cover, I wonder if yours will have some sort of name stamp? The pictures do look identical to the upcoming Yoobao case.

White stitching = super tacky.

These cases also add so much bulk to the iPad. If I ever considered one of these body cases it would have to be really thin.

I'm sure there will be a couple variations of the Yoobao cases. Look at the iPad 1 cases, they started out so-so, then eventually became even better than the iPad case from Apple.

Update on my brown Yoobao iPad 2 case. After confirming availability of brown case I received an email stating that brown case availability was delayed to unknown date. I agreed to take black if brown is not available by March 26th.
