    I'm interested in the Smart Cover but a little worried about how it's going to keep the screen clean. Apple says the inside is microfiber but doesn't the fact that rolling the cover into a stand mean that the inside of the cover picks up any dust/dirt on the table you're sitting it on? I hope Griffin or someone comes out with a book-style case with 2 sides and a magnetic hinge.
    The best protection that I had for my iPad was a TPU case on the rear and a neoprene netbook sleeve when it was in my bag.

    Yeah, you're right and I've thought about that too. Maybe buy a lint roller and clean it once or twice a week?

    To make it worse, the Smart Cover isn't even stable as a stand unless you fold it with the microfiber OUT. However if you're using it as a typing stand only, you can leave the microfiber part in and it works okay.

    You can roll the microfiber side the other way, like I do, so the leather/polyurethane is on the outside.

    As j-a-x said: you can't do this for the stand portion of the stand, otherwise it keeps falling down. :(
