Does the Smart Cover stay magnetized to the back of the case when holding in book mode?

Perfect solution for me
I dare you to put your iPad face down on a table and slide it across. The iPhone and iPad use the same exact glass and the iPhone is known for easily being scratched. It's the same with the iPad. So don't feel too comfortable without screen protection.

I just got mine on eBay. I got the front smart cover and a back cover for $19.99.
Fits like a glove on the iPad 3. They had a lot of colors to choose from!

So does incipio smart feather have magnets to stick smart cover on the back in place? does it prevents ipad from sliping out of hands?
If not, does ZUM SC have those features? How about other similar back covers?

THere is no magnet on the back of the smart feather, although there is a little bit of magnetic force when you fold the smart cover back. It's very weak and not enough to hold the cover up in any practical manner.

There's no way that 3m strips will work for the back of the incipio, will it?

Got this for my Ipad from Luton Airport. Paid about 17 cause I really needed it for my Ipad at this time.

Saw the same one on Amazon when I got back for a fiverr DOH!



Frosted back cover


Clear back cover

Does anyone know when Speck will be releasing the smart shell for the new Ipad. To me, they strike -by far- the best balance between protection and style. And the smart shell achieves all of the "wants" outlined in the OP, no?

With the addition of the extra (positional) magnet, the smart shell would blow everything else away (though, it would likely add a bit of weight vs. Zum, iblason, luardi).

The 3M strips stick to the inside of the case so I would assume that they'd work with the Incipio. I put one of the strips on the inside of my Zum case and it works perfectly.

See thread on Zum + 3M strips here

You've missed the point. I only use my iPad at home, since it's just way too big and heavy to carry around outside. I just leave it in the NGP case face-up around the house and pick it up when I want to use it. No case flapping around and annoying me, and the rubberised grip is definitely an improvement over the iPad's harsh pointed edges. As I said, if I needed to take it anywhere, I'd get a slip cover for it.

This is the direction I'm leaning. I'm beginning to feel that the way to go is a case that helps you get a comfortable grip on the iPad but when you want to take it places, keep it in a real sleeve or something that will protect the screen, etc.

3) made of durable, comfortable "grippable" material (because the naked iPad can be uncomfortable to hold in book form.)

4) secures to the smart cover

5) covers the iPad, including top and bottom, with sleek cut out that don't prevent docking...

6) this is more optional: metal thingee that allows you to keep your smart over folded over.
Ironically, Apple's Smart CASE is "supposed" to address 15 (2 and 4 being N/A).

I'm thinking of trying the SGP ultra thin

http://www.spigen.com/tablets/apple/...in-series.html

Just a bit worried if finger prints show badly or not, would go for the black myself.

OP, have you thought about using a skin type material for the back of your ipad?

Sticker Boy has some great skins. They protect the back of the ipad, make it easy to hold, and work great with a smart cover.

Take a look.
