    Sleeve case, probably from Waterfield. Possibly the Smart Cover as well.

    Initially I'll see how well it fits in my iPad 1.0 slip in case. If that fails I'll keep it naked and store in a 10" computer bag until some worthwhile cases come out. I'll buy a $2 matte screen protector on eBay.

    I just can't pay $40 for a couple magnets and sheet of plastic that leaves 75% of the iPad unprotected. There will be less expensive knock offs. I might consider that in combination with a Zagg knockoff for the back.

    Pink cover and just ordered a ISkin Summit case in purple. Lots of padding when not in use :)

    I got this for temporary coverage. I'm waiting for reviews of cases or for a dodo iPad 2 case.

    Smart cover and a gelaskin.

    Also another top tip to protect your iPad 2. Don't let anyone but you touch it :rolleyes:

    I look after my stuff so don't need to waste money on plastic screen protectors that cost pence to make, yet you are happy paying thousands of percent extra... The only time it would go into any kind of case is when I take it out of the house, which is not that often because I have an iPhone 4 that takes care of mobile activities.

    I'm waiting for the Vaja Case which will hopefully be released soon. Their iPad1 case was awesome!
    And it won't be with the Apple cover! Does anyone realize how much dust and dirt the microfiber cover is going to attract when folded into a triangle on the back of the ipad? The outside of the cool triangle is what goes against the screen when unfolded...NOT cool! :-(

    That's pretty much what I did on my last iPad... although it was just a sleeve and not a smart cover.

    thinking I'll give the smartcover a whirl this time though.

    The green smartcover. I'd like to get the red one, but I'm worried about how ruined it will get knowing my awesomeness around liquids. I can also think of better ways to spend an extra $30.

    Custom designed gelaskin to protect the back from scratches and personalize it, and I'm hoping it will fit nicely in a netbook neoprene sleeve I have sitting around when transporting it. If not I'll buy something similar to carry it in.

    I'll probably take my chances with the screen unprotected in normal use.

    For the first-gen iPad, I used an InCase Convertible Book Jacket, which increased the size and weight substantially. So, this time, I made the decision to go the exact opposite direction.

    I was always intrigued by the Belkin Grip Vue, but never tried it. Needing a case for the iPad 2, I decided to try iLuv's Flex Grip. It arrived today and I'm very impressed with the material. It's not a "grippy" silicone, and not a hard case... it's a good middle ground. And, it's definitely very, very thin which is great.

    It'll provide protection against scratches and dings, and it won't attract dust and lint like rubbery silicone. If I decide I need something more substantial in the future, I'll purchase something then. But, for right now, I'm a happy camper.

    And, with the slim form factor, I'll finally be able to use my TwelveSouth stand.

    So, definitely recommended. And, don't too much faith in the picture on the website... not very representative of the final product. In person, it looks much better. Case&category_cd=t44&cat_lev=1
