    As the novelty of the smartcover wears off more and more each day, I find myself missing my original iPad case.

    Anyone try to make this work yet?

    I'm curious if you could just carefully cut out holes for the camera...eh?

    I had a portenzo so my old case was a no go. I dug around and found a sleeve I bought from boxwave. I pit my iPad 2 with the smart cover in it. It is working fine. So I don't have to make rash decisions about cases right now. I'll more than likely return the smartcover next week.

    Search youtube for "iPad 1 case iPad 2". There is a video of it fitting. The issues are size (it's a bit too big) and accessibility (ports don't fully line up).

    I picked up the Targus case from BestBuy for $39.99 and it's made for the new iPad 2. The leather is nice and the light blue interior is mostly hidden and looks light gray in the light of my desk.

    Hard Candy has an Apple OEM like case for the iPad 2. I saw it on ilounge though I'm sure you can go to their website and take a look too.

    Just ordered the Hard Candy case. I think I am the only one who actually liked the original iPad case from Apple.
