    Hello. Has anyone seen a crystal clear back for the new iPad? I saw that Belkin has a foggy clear back. I'm looking for one that's completely clear.

    Thanks!

    I have a crystal clear Belkin Snap Shield on my phone. I'm hoping they eventually make one for the iPad. The only downside is that it shows scratches pretty easily. Also, the texture is pretty close to the back of the iPhone, so it doesn't provide any additional grip. 

    I'll be keeping a look out for a crystal back. I'll let you know if I see any.

    I think the Macally SmartMate is what you are looking for.

    Seriously. Case manufacturers start out like this:

    Launch new product for new shiny Apple device at outrageous price to test the waters.
    Offer coupon after realizing sales slow.
    Blitz social media in an attempt to garner attention. Test waters.
    Lower price to a semi-ridiculous point.
    Blitz again. Test waters.
    Clearance for $15 shipped.
    (meanwhile, the actual cost was like $7 to manufacturer)


    I just don't see the approach. Guess they figure we spent $5-800 and will just drop cash on overpriced stuff. IMO, only Apple can get away with this since their smartcover prices are rock-solid and hardly ever discounted.

    Oh well. I'm sure it's a nice product. Just not $89 nice. Never heard of them anyway. Best -

    TPU cases tend to lean on the cheap side since the margin for a tight fight is much wider. Hard plastic shells have to be custom molded to grip the bezel, but TPU cases just stretch on over the bezel, creating the large "lip" that runs around the iPad. Usually those lips are poorly cut, dig into your hands, and interfere with the smart cover. TPU cases can be found for ~$5 shipped.
