    Is it a tight fit? Will it accommodate an ipad with a skin? And is it sturdy? Is it firm when tapping on the top corners?

    Was there really a need for a unboxing of an ipad dock? What next, unboxing your lunch later?

    I think his main point was to show the fit and show how a smart cover will not fit inside. Calm down...

    no there is no real need for unboxing. I wasn't really showing the unboxing being that its just one item in the box. more of showing how tight the fit is with ipad2. showing people who wanted to purchase it a real life picture.

    it should fit with a thin skin on the back. def not with a plastic back cover.

    pic of back coming in a minute

    What do you guys think about this dock? I see a lot of them shipping from Hong Kong on ebay right now. It looks like you might be able to let the Smart Cover rest in the extra slot/groove behind the docking slot. I'm guessing that the intended purpose of the second slot is to lay the iPad in landscape mode but I'm not sure.

    I get wanting to be able to dock with a case on, but the smart cover is a different story. It was designed to be able to be removed and put back on VERY easily, so I don't get why it would matter if you could leave it on while it docks. I don't use the smartcover, or plan to get the dock, so maybe I'm missing something.

    I like an uncluttered desk and for me it's an issue of where am I going to put the darn smart cover if I have to remove it to place the ipad on a dock.

    Just placed an order, will post pics when it arrives.

    Cheaper than the "official" iPad 2 dock so may cancel that!

    YES. You can and it works fine.

    My iPad 2 dock arrived today and if you simply fold the smart cover into a triangle before docking it works great still attached.
