I bought two smart covers the day they came out,both leather versions along side the iPad 2. Been using them since with 3 newer iPads,they hold up great and feel good in the hands. Excited about the air and the lightness but I don't understand why apple would only release the newest version of smart covers in plastics only, and as far as i can tell pretty ugly bright colors. IMO a "full"cover is only going to weigh down the air and add thickness but i can already see i'm most likely going to get one of those because it will just feel better and the leather versions usually have more upscale color options. I really consider the smart cover a piece of the iPad. A smart case, not really feeling it.
