If anyone is looking for a lower cost alternative to protecting the iPad2, I can recommend the Acase line at Amazon. I just picked up this one today for $15.95: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004QOULA0 Holes line up fine for the rear camera. It looks like the speaker would get blocked, but I found it helps resonate the sound more than muffles it. Not really a stand built in, but you can use the rear propped up tent-style for movies or books. Nice padding on the cover and a suede lining against the screen. They make a version with the elastic bands on all corners but I like the extra protection of the side pocket. I'm going low budget on my case this time around. For a screen protector, I'm still using the plastic wrap my iPad came in. Keeps the dirt and greasy smudge off which is all I wanted. Plus it wraps around the entire body of the device including corners. I was never happy with the screen protectors I used for my iPad1.
