    I really want it too, but I doubt it.
    It must have some magnets inside the iPad so they align perfectly, also, the shape is really different, it's a gimmick to make you buy the new one.

    The shape doesn't look that different to me. And surely the magnets could stick to the metal rim around the edge.

    It's aluminum. You try using a magnet with aluminum.

    Sure. With JB Weld.

    Without? Not so likely.
