360 Shield: Now this is a sexy iPad 2 case!

Folio-style but übercool design! The top is clear polycarbonate, assume the base is too but not sure from the photos. I might just pre-order just to have one. Not sure how scratch resistant it will be, but definitely a head turner.

They made one for the iPad 1, here's a YT vid of the case. Seems to be polycarbonate on both halves too.

Yeah, after seeing the video it lost it's luster a bit, but it does look pretty tough. I was imaging, by looking at the flat top of the newer design, that it would be like glass. The hinge appears like it should be solid and smooth, but seems to be creaky. It does have looks going for it, though I'd have to honestly see it in person now before buying it.

I'm a huge xgear supporter and own their excellent carbon folio and carbon back for the ipad1 - but this hinge makes this thing look like crap....
