    Anyone have any favorite case for the iPad2?


    I like this one-http://www.speckproducts.com/pixelskin-hd-wrap-ipad-case-blue-1607.html but they don't seem to be in stock now.

    You may want to shift this to the iPad Accessories forum. ;)

    I love my Portenzo. Shipping did take awhile honestly, but it was well worth the wait :). Here is the link.

    Shrug. I glanced thru the video and an looked at the pictures. The case looks fine to me except that I've ruled out cases that leave the edges unprotected. It looks like the top, right side and bottom are all unprotected. No thanks.

    BTW, what's the proper method to get this moved to the proper area? Are we supposed to flag them, PM a moderator or hope one of them sees this?

    For me, switcheasy canvas is the best! it's folio case; it almost fully cover the back and the sides, plus ON/OFF function (i don't care about the standing)

    This! It's a really great case. Protects everything and it does it in style. According to every review I saw/read, currently, this is the iPad case to beat.

    Protect them from what??

    Do you want this with a zipper around the three sides??

    I guess that would protect it somewhat from dust, but not sure what else.

    Mine shows up today and I'm looking forward to trying it out.

    Leather Apple Smart Cover. - cover, stand, sleep function.

    Bestskinsever back only skin. - keeps the back naked and scratch free, adds a nice bit of grip.

    STM Jacket for iPad - great little carrying case with handle, attachable shoulder strap, doc pocket, zippable power cord/iphone pocket. Great for carrying around. Holds iPad with cover on. Can be slipping into a larger laptop bag or backpack but offers some extra padding then.

    I have the Yoobao Ipad2 leather case. It's nice but has it's flaws. I would like to get the Marware Folio or the Ion Carbon Cover, but look what is coming out next month from Yoobao.

    Leather top with leather cover that doesn't cover the bezel. NICE!

    The rep told me mid July so I am waiting to see the price.

    I have the Yoobao rev2. Its a black leather cover but has its faults with the magnets and the flap that supposed to hold it in the cover.

    They have a rev3 coming so I started to look at similar styles. I like the Marware Folio but I here the magnets aren't that good. I really like the Ion Carbon Cover but it's a little too pricey for me.

    Here is what the Yoobao rep says will be out in mid-July.

    It looks great. Doesn't cover the bezel. I am going to wait for this one.

    Melko

    After much trial and error, shattered bamboo, and lots of wasted money, I finally settledo on the Melko. Relatively lightweight, high quality leather, protective, smart cover, sitting positions similiar to smart cover.

    Another vote for Portenzo! I got my case this week and the quality of it is extremely impressive. I think they're getting over the hump of all the initial orders, so hopefully shipping time will go down - I just ordered another case, and I want it now :p

    Another cool company is TwelveSouth (http://twelvesouth.com/). They shipped right away and extremely nice. The BookBook case is good because it zips all around while providing a certain level of disguise.
