    The Kensington iPad 2 Keyfolio is 50% off today as part of an Amazon Gold Deal.

    The problem is, not sure it fits the new iPad.

    Kensington has a model that does fit the new iPad. While many are saying that most iPad cases are interchangeable, I don't want to trust buying one of these a week prior to release and it not fitting.

    The model # on Amazon is K39357US (the new iPad model is K39336US)

    Any thoughts?

    Send it back for a full refund if it doesn't fit?

    The new iPad is 0.02" thicker. Do you think the case will stretch that much?

    If truly interested then buy it and see if it fits. They have such a great return policy that I wouldn't hesitate to buy and return if need be.

    Thanks for posting that great deal. I had to jump on that for $40. I'm 99.72646% sure it will fit. It's probably discontinued b/c the packaging says "iPad 2" and the new model will say something like "For iPad 2 and iPad (3rd gen). But it will otherwise be the same case.

    If for some odd reason it doesn't fit Amazon has a great return policy so worst case I'm out $5 for return shipping.

    Just occurred to me: the new model might have a "dictation" key like the new iPad 3 virtual keyboard.

    I just ordered it. I think 99.9999999999% sure it will fit too b/c it's not a perfect form factor case. It's a "sleeve" type case where your ipad slides into. that difference is almost like having a zagg invisible shield on the back of the iPad. So thanks for posting! Great price!

    The big difference will be having a BT 4.0 keyboard that greatly reduces battery draw for both the keyboard and iPad...
