    Anyone know if the Smart Cover's magnet works on the rear of the iPad? Meaning, when flipped completely open and back onto the rear of the iPad, does the Smart Cover stay magnetized or does it flap around?

    I would really like to know this as well. None of the Apple videos or hands on clips from YouTube show the cover fully opened around the back, they focus on the triangular stand mode.

    The Macworld video review shows that it does. You can even fold just half of it back so that the rear camera is still available.

    Yes, don't know if it magnetically attaches on the other side too though.

    Hmmm so if I have a silicon case and a smart cover, the smart cover may be flapping in the wind. Maybe these 2 don't go so well together.

    but thats exactly what Jason Snell implies in his video - that it does attach when it's half folded.
