    just yesterday at my local Best Buy store. Bought one immediately to protect the back, and it snaps on perfectly. Have an STM Skinny on order but needed something else in the meantime.

    I know some folks here have used the Belkin for iPad 2, so fyi that the new/3 is in.

    This. Even Belkin isn't selling them on their own site yet.

    Did not even check b/c all I was looking for was the snap shield since I had a similar Belkin about 2 years ago for iPad 1 (not snap tho, soft mold), and I needed something for the back protection.

    Please provide us with the Bestbuy SKU from the receipt for the item (assuming they are different from the SKUs for the Belkin Snap Shield for IPad 2). This would give us a chance to possibly track them down. Thanks

    Again, for anyone who has "picked one up"...if you have, please post the item number/SKU so that we can attempt to find locally.

    Good to know, THANKS! I have one pre-ordered from Amazon but it isn't suppose to ship until April 1st! :( The back of the iPad is SLIPPERY and I'm worried I'm going to ding it before the new case comes here... I need to hit the local BB...

    Pdawg, the SKU is the seven digit numerical code (Bestbuy SKU format) that precedes the product description on the receipt from your purchase. The code you provided is a Belkin identifier.

    Providing SKU or maybe even receipt scan?
