    I was just wondering if anybody knew of somebody that makes a carbon fiber case for the back of the iPad 2. I've seen those stickers but I don't want stickers. I want an actual carbon fiber case cover for the back of my iPad 2. Thank you in advance

    I emailed moncarbone (I have their 3GS and Ipad 1 cases) and they said they will make one, but didn't give me a date. I'm reluctant to try anyone else, their fit and finish is fantastic.

    Nice. Never heard of them before. I'll be interested to see what they come out with.

    I've been looking for something nice in real CF. Here's my search results so far ...

    DRO Concepts
    http://droconcepts.com/
    Notes: Nothing for P2 yet, but they use real carbon fiber and made folio and shell cases for P1. Price guess: $99.

    monCarbone
    http://www.moncarbone.com/
    Notes: Nothing for P2 yet, but they use real carbon fiber and made shell case for P1. Price guess: $75.

    Mach 3 Composites
    http://www.mach3composites.com/
    Notes: iPad 2 shell case will be out on May 1. Made of real carbon fiber. Pre-order price is $60, and will be $70 after May 1.
    They also make a neat real carbon fiber iPad briefcase that can be used with P1 or P2. Cost is $130 and in stock now.

    XGearlive
    http://www.xgearlive.com/
    Notes: Folio style real carbon fiber case will be available on March 31. Price is $300. They made several real and simulated cases for P1, ranging in price from $30 to $100, so I expect they will have several for the P2.

    Aazzo
    http://www.aazzo.com/
    Notes: They have real carbon fiber P1 case listed for pre-order, so maybe they will eventually have one, but doubtful.

    AutoTecknic
    http://www.autotecknic.com/
    Notes: They made a nice real CF P1 which is on sale for $75 now. Hopefully they will make one for the P2.

    Scosche
    http://www.scosche.com/consumer-tech
    Notes: A couple of fake carbon fiber cases (foldIO P2) coming out any day now for about $45.

    Carbon Fiber Gear
    http://www.carbonfibergear.com/
    Notes: Reseller of carbon fiber gear. They have a good CF blog, and are a good site to keep an eye on for new iPad CF cases. They sell several cases for the P1.

    Infinity Carbon
    http://www.infinitycarbon.com/
    Notes: they made numerous very nice real CF cases, in a variety of CF colors and weaves, for the P1. Site is offline now, and don't know if they will be back. Check their facebook page for updates in the meantime. Also check their facebook photos page for pics of all of their cases.

    Marware
    http://www.marware.com/
    Notes: Fake CF folio style cases planned for P2, will be out any day, and has MSRP of $50.

    Ion
    http://www.ion-factory.com/
    Notes: Real CF sleeve available for P2 now, for $70. They made real CF sleeve and jacket for P1, so I expect a jacket for the P2.

    Element Case
    http://www.elementcase.com/
    Notes: Only made a real CF stand for the P1, but they make really nice stuff for the iPhones, so I hope they will make something for the P2.

    iKit
    http://www.ikit.com/
    Notes: Currently sell a fake CF case for the P2 for $30. Appears to be a plastic/rubber shell with a CF skin glued on.

    eBay
    Notes: Assorted cheap domestic and asian fake CF, with prices from $15. Nothing seen there to date looks appealing to me.



    I'll probably buy the Scosche foldIO P2 next week for about $35 when it comes out. Then, I'll wait for a quality real CF front-back shell or folio. I don't like the folios that convert to a stand (crease in middle looks bad).

    icarbon.com - an excellent, quality cut - white and black. I know you asked about stickers but these are done so well, they should be considered....
