    Switcheasy has just released their smart cover compatible case called the Cover Buddy. It's $24.99 + 3 s/h. Looks like available now and I just ordered the clear.

    http://www.switcheasy.com/products/CoverBuddy/

    I will update the smart cover compatible list.

    Very nice.

    I have always been happy with my service from Switcheasy and have liked many of their products.

    I wonder how "grippable" these will be. The Clear looks nice, but how prone to scratches?

    I'll likely order one.

    kicking myself a bit...

    Saw this on iLounge, I think. Kinda kicking myself now for pulling the trigger on the Belkin back cover over the weekend. I still have the packaging...hmmm...

    Anyway, thanks for the heads up! Might be a black one and a pink one (for my wife) in my future.

    I was about to start this thread too.
    Looks good the CoverBuddy.

    I am torn between the CoverBuddy or the Canvas from Switcheasy. Which would you guys recommend?

    I'm in the process of looking for a back cover and like the look of this one. Wondering if it will work with the iCarbon skin. I saw one on another thread that looked nice with the carbon behind it.

    I hope someone that gets this will post a mini-review soon. I just picked up the belkin snap shield for my wife's ipad. I'd swap it for the pink version of this if it's as good. I really like the "soft" touch feeling of the belkin snap shield.

    Thanks for sharing. After looking at the pics on their site, it doesn't cover enough of the part where the smart cover hinges for me. I think I'll stay with the Belkin snap case for now although the color options are tempting.

    There are a lot of these types of cases on eBay now for around $12.

    Thanks

    Just got an email back from their customer service stating; "hope to get our replenishment shipment very soon. Hopefully at the
    end of this week or early next week".

    I'm down with trying one of these, in black to compliment my Belkin snap shield.

    Seems strange that they are sold out so quickly and not one member here seems to have purchased and talked about it, but I guess stranger things have happened.

    Like a nightmare I had last night about Enki! Ya had to be there!

    My Clear CoverBuddy is shipping today. Unfortunately, I will be out of town next week and won't be able to post pictures/impressions until I return.

    I ordered mine on the 3rd even though they were backordered, hoping the backorder wouldn't be long. I got my shipping confirmation yesterday afternoon!

    They are now listed on European Store, nearly ordered but I'm not going to pay £10 delivery from Germany to England so I'll wait for them to me listed on amazon uk. £25 + £10 ripoff .

    35 Euros about £30 doesn't seem to bad for the Switcheasy when considering an XGear Smart Cover Enhancer is £29.99 alone from mobilefun in the UK.

    Shame we haven't got any feedback or close up images yet.

    Just ordered the black one.
    Does anybody know if they have the rubber/silicone feeling or it's more like plastic?
