    I'm surprised I never heard of it either.

    I found this review of the first version for the ipad 1. It looks really good and nice. I was looking for something like this but I was hoping someone would post a review before I commit to buying it.

    I changed the title to hopefully attract more people to this thread. I'm really REALLY intrigued by this case since it seems to have all fo the features I want but I was hoping someone had more info on the case. Looks like the reviews for the previous Toblino case are overwhemingly positive.

    Looks good but I think they should have included one more slot for angled use. As it is now there isn't an angle to type on it.

    The typing angle is the only angle that I really don't care about in just about any case since I don't see myself ever using it but I can see why it's important to some. That being said, the review seems to show that you can put it that way.

    This looks like a really interesting case though. It stays shut and uses the sleep wake function.

    Why can't Marware just release their cases! Ugh. I wish we at least had an actual date that they would ship.

    Thanks for the heads-up about the case. After reading the reviews (including the reviews for the Ipad 1 version of the case), put in an order. I tried the Targus vuscape, which has an almost identical design (without the sleep/wake feature), but it was so poorly made, my Ipad 2 wouldn't fit. I suspect it was rushed out before the Ipad was available for Targus to test.

    Getting tired of waiting for Portenzo, Treegloo, and Marware to ship me ordered cases; looking for something (anything) to give my Ipad a little protection. Hopefully, this will do the trick.

    I'm still trying to figure out why no one is talking about this case since it has everything that a lot of people seem to want.

    After looking for a case for a long time, thanks to my wife finding this case for me in less than 5 minutes. I guess we are focusing on more known brands and miss the other good cases. I will have mine next week. It has everything I want and the price is right.

    Cancelled my marware microshell folio for this. Hope I like the bezel not being fully secured.

    I'm torn. I really wanted to see the Marware CEO case cause I love the strap that you can put your hand through on the inside. Damn them. I'm on the fence about ordering this one and returning the one I don't like.

    Does the front cover fold back flat on this case? For holding like a book /magazine..?

    it would be nice if it could have one more angle for the almost flat typing.

    Again, the case is capable of that angle. Watch the YouTube review posted above.

    this seems like the best case i've seen so far.
    slim, folds back, auto sleep/wake, made with leather.
    i think im going to order one.

    Looks nice, like that it is small and the iPad appears to slide out pretty easily if you want to use it without the case. Anyone know if there are any issues with sliding the iPad in if a screen film is in place? Also, whe it folds backwards does it have any magnets that keep the cover from flopping around?

    Honestly it seems that this case is a complete mystery. No one on the boards seems to have one of the previous ones. It looks like a couple of people ordered them though so I'm hoping that they can provide some feedback on the case. It looks pretty good and it's definnitely got me intrigued but I'm still waiting for hear more before I order it.

    I have the Targus Vuscape and I wanted another for 2nd iPad arriving Tuesday, but they have been hard to find. Then I saw this and it seems exactly the same but leather and has sleep/wake function. Amazon has it for same price as Targus. I placed my order. MSRP is $49.99, Amazon $39.99. :)
