Marware Microshell Folio for iPad 2 does not fit new iPad

Corners won't click in. Guess I'm on the market for a replacement then.

I'm having the same problem with their new Microshell Folio (http://www.marware.com/microshell-fo...r-the-new-ipad).

I can click the new iPad into either the lower left corner OR the upper left corner, but not both at the same time.

Not only that, the lid's sleep/wake function doesn't work.

I like the potential of this case, so hopefully Marware will offer some options. I've contacted Support.

Same problem here. Sleep/awake function works, but it doesn't fit in the bottom left corner.

I got mine in today and it went in okay. A little tight on the last 2 corners but nothing major.

I got the shell only (not folio) from them last week and it fits the IP3 perfectly.

I finally got it to snap in! It's a super tight fit.

Still can't get the sleep/wake function to work, though.

I just got the Microshell Folio and it fits my New iPad perfectly. The magnets work well too. No problems for me.

I am guessing those that have had success are using the updated "new iPad" version rather than the iPad 2 version.

Mine is supposed to be for the "new iPad" according to the box.
