    I like the design. Seems like one of the thinnest of the leather folios. Also, it appears that when in horizontal mode the strap used to close it slips into the same holder on the back to keep it secure (just guessing since there is no back photo).

    I just hope I quit before I get as many iPad cases as I have iPhone cases. Which are all out of date as of the iPhone 4 :rolleyes:

    I was also looking at the new Yoobao executive with the clips but I don't like the way it stands horizontally. The PS seems perfect.

    Just noticed--the ivory color has more photos at the site

    FYI, if you look at the Ivory color they supplied a lot more photos than they did for the other colors. It does look pretty interesting.

    Very nice. A great alternative to the Yoaboo and Vaja ones (I know they are extremes in regards to pricing).

    Judging by the pictures it's EXACTLY like the macally bookstand. It looks like the hinge is of the same poor and loose quality as well, my guess is that it will sag quite a bit in the typing position....

    It does look exactly like the macally but I am hoping it is of better quality....someone has to bite the bullet and give it a review.

    But right now i have the Noreve that sucks in typing position. This would be a substantial improvement.

    I like it, I have the PS antiglare screen protector on my ipad and several iphone power support items I like too.
    Only issue I see is the almost white interior, when folded out will possibly get dirty looking.

    I wish I could tell how the gray ext looks, could be a very nice color.
    I wasn't crazy about the original Macally bookstand gray color I had, so I just got the black Macally Bookstand...but it's flimsy, even moreso than the grey one.
    the PS leather folio looks more like what I wanted all along.

    Does it turn into a typing stand like the Apple case? Wish they had more pics at the site...

    I called Power Support to find out when this case would be available for order again. They said there had been quality issues with the first batch and that they changed manufacturers. I was told it would be about 3-4 weeks before it would be available again. Not sure what this means for the people who are apparently having theirs shipped now.

    good to know that they are watching the quality control, for the cost it better be high quality. makes me wonder tho. I could see changing materials for better quality but manufacturers? it's just gluing and stitching.

    My impression was that they were not sending out the bad product. Please give us a review and post some pictures and you receive it. I am very interested in this case.

    I didn't think the PS cases were available? :confused:

    I signed up to get notice when they are. I'm looking for a thin case as well. The Incase I have for the time being is a little thick to carry around everyday.

    I saw that notice a week ago and it has never changed. It just means the Post Office was told they were getting a package. I have not received.
