I know the front screen will, but do any sites have a side-by-side photo of the backs of the devices? I have a brand new iPad 2 shield and I'd rather not pay another $40 for the same thing.

Yes, I am actually quite curious about this myself. I had sent in for a new shield because the one for my 2 was a bit damaged, and they sent me a new one. In the midst of this, Apple came out with the New, so now I am curious it will work with the New iPad.

I know this, the new iPad is about a half of millimeter thicker, which doesn't seem like much, but also, the claims are it is much more rounded on the edges than the 2. So this could imply just slightly the shield may not cover the edges completely, maybe leaving a 1/4 of a millimeter around the edge bare.

I can probably live with this than dropping another 25-35 for a new shield.

My guess is the camera could have been moved a little too. If it has, it is possible we could cut the hole just a little bigger to make room, since I am sure it is not that different.

I just installed the iPad 2 back shield onto the New iPad. Fits great. It was actually easier to install. Because the 3rd gen iPad is slightly bigger, the skin shield isn't trying to overlap the edges like it did on a iPad 2 installation. I should say that my product is an ExtremeGuard. It's the same thing as InvisibleShield, but only seven dollars on eBay. :p
