    My "New iPad" should show up by next Friday, Thursday if I'm lucky! I have never owned an iPad or tablet of any kind previously. I have seen a mass variety of cases for the iPad 2, and I know most soft cases will work with the 3rd gen. iPad.

    So I'm curious, what case are you going to use on your shiny new iPad? If any? Do you currently have an iPad 2 case you're going to try on it?

    I'm looking into those cases that have the bluetooth keyboards built into them. I'd like to be able to take notes during meetings without losing some of my screen to the on-screen one, but I'm also not sure if I want a thicker, clunkier case like that? A nice leather folio would be good for day to day use I think.

    Please share links / video reviews of cases you're suggesting if you know of any.

    Back in 2010 when the iPhone 4 came out I ordered a bamboo case from http://www.grovemade.com . They're an Oregon based company that makes some seriously good quality and beautiful bamboo cases. The original case I got I'm still using on an almost daily basis and it's still just as good as the day I got it, even after a couple drops.

    I was thinking of ordering one of their new iPad Sleeve cases.


    A co-worker of mine has this case for his iPad 1st Gen. It seems like a decent case.

    Wow those are some awesome looking cases, I may have to look into getting one myself.

    I will be very picky. Those cases that the iPad snaps in the case can damage it over time. I had an iPad 2 with dented corners from two different cases. Remember just because it looks like it fits does not mean it fits properly.

    Ordered the new dodocase! Easily the best looking option for the iPad.

    I'll be getting the STM Skinny once they start shipping the new version. Used it for my iPad 2 and liked it.

    Me too and I agree, they are the best! I ordered the Lake/Meadow case from their new Spring/Summer collection.

    Beyza Executive II expected to be my main case, but I couldn't resist trying the new Switcheasy Canvas.

    Both expected to be delivered next week.

    In the mean time, I'm using a clear Speck Smartshell for the iPad 2 and a Smart Cover.

    +1, I'm going for dragons in red again. I was blown away by the one I got for my iPad 1.

    I have a black Marware micro shell on the rear of the iPad and a tan Apple Smart Cover on the front. Keeps the overall package as slin as possible while still offering decent protection of the iPad.

    I got the STM skinny 3 today, it is labelled as for the iPad 3 instead of new iPad, but the case is a perfect fit.

    I got brown, and it looks sexy on my white iPad.

    As soon as I can find the STM Skinny somewhere in the UK, or somewhere hat will ship to the UK relatively soon, then I'll be buying that.

    Looks great, good protection, but without the bulk and weight of the Switcheasy Canvas I have with my iPad 2.

    I love the Marware Microshell Folio I have on my iPad 2, on back order for the new iPad at the moment though so will have to wait.

    Got the Belkin Tri-fold Folio for now.
