    The company SGP is coming out with one very soon. Looks to be pretty nice if you like the slider style cases.

    Check it out here.

    They also are going to have a really nice natural leather folio coming out soon.

    Just thought I would pass it along.

    It looks nice. I like the thin minimal look. Doesn't seem to add much bulk to the iPad.

    The naked iPad is so beautiful really want a case that dissent take away from that.

    I love my Incase slider for my iPhone but I'm not convinced that this design will be as convenient on the iPad. First, the purpose of the slider on the iPhone is so that it can be docked. Since the dock runs the width if the iPhone, a slider works well. The iPad dock is much narrower than the iPad itself and removing the entire bottom of a case is not necessary.

    Second, removing the bottom of a slider on an iPhone is rather easy. The iPad is much larger and I'm having a hard time imagining how to take it on and off.

    There was a case posted by someone a week or so ago that, instead of removing the entire bottom, just the lower middle area came off for docking. That seems like a better option for the iPad but I admit that I don't have experience with either one yet.

    I wonder how the material feels like..Looks like it would be soft like a matte or suede material?

    I asked them what material it is made of

    I am waiting for reply

    I hope it is the same soft touch matte silicone used by InCase for their slider

    I have found it to be perfect for comfort, grip and appearance

    wonder why they needed to put the slider up so high from the bottom. It's just that much more surface area to scratch when removing/replacing it. couldn't they have done at the 1/3 mark like the iPhone?

    what about this from ifrogz, thankfully they took away the back connector knob that is on the iphone and iPod Luxe case. Comes in all black, red/black, grey/black, teal/black, brunt orange/black, pink/black or blue/black.

    This SGP looks a little sleeker and not as rounded as the iFrogz but I can't wait so I just ordered the Luxe from Amazon. :)

    I have the Incase slider for my Touch, and cases like that make so much sense for iPhones and Touches. But a slider case for the iPad doesn't seem practical whatsoever. I would hate to hinder the beauty of the iPad with a case that doesn't have any real functions.

    I hope you got as great a deal as I did. I only paid $18 plus $5 shipping from a secondary merchant on Amazon. I love my Blue one. The texture is so awesome.
