    Well, I finally received the smart case from Khomo (Price: $9.85 + $3.98 S/H)

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OKSMA6A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    • First let me tell you it's much better than what I was expecting. It's actually very nice case for the price. I found zero defects granted I have no idea how long is going to last me and I have never owned an iPad/smart cover combination.
    • Material wise, it looks of a very nice rubberized material but not to the extreme. I would called semi-rubber. Perfect if you ask me.
    • Fits perfectly fine. It snapped with perfection.
    • The openings for the buttons, plugs, etc, are right on.
    • Magnets are just perfect. I would have love it a tiny bit stronger but again I have no idea how the original Apple smart cover feels like.
    • Look and feel 10/10 for a $10 smart case+cover.

    Here the pictures::D

    It feels like TPU. Rubberized but not very sticky. More like TPU or semi-rubberized plastic surface. I hope I got it right :)

    It's a hard shell BTW

    It feels like Batman's iPad LOL!

    Lol.. that's the material I like. I just got the Incipio feather case for the 6 mainly because of that rubberized surface. I just have a hard time describing that texture to other people in words.

    Need a favor.

    I want this case for it's back shell, I want to use it with the official Apple Smart Cover. What I need to know is if you think I can cut off the Khomo cover at its attach point and use the Apple Smart Cover in its place.

    What I need to know is if when that thin attach point gets sliced off of there is an indent in the plastic back shell to which the Apple Smart Cover magnets can attach. The indent would look like the photo above. It's a cutout along the left side of the back shell.

    Please let me know. I'll order one tonight if that's the case. Thanks.

    do you have an apple smart cover that u can check if size of the cutout is the same? Or maybe we can measure the size of the hinge on the smart cover.

    I actually don't have a smart cover to measure with me, so maybe boltjames can measure it.

    I don't have a Smart Cover but I measured the opening and it's exactly 8" wide

    Khomo.

    It's glued to the shell. It seems like you could take it off with a heatgun :)

    could be just the angle or lighting. Should be the same.

    I have the Besdata and will have the Khomo tonight.

    I can tell you that the Besdata is half the thickness and will absolutely not wear well over time, it's just too flimsy I'm returning the Besdata to Amazon, even if the Khomo doesn't work out I'm not keeping it.

    So I decided to just rip off the front cover on the Khomo and use my new Apple smart cover so that I can just yank it off (so cool how the cover magnetically adheres) whenever I wanted too.

    Couple of reasons why I did this:

    * When holding the iPad, it's much comfortable to not have the front cover folder around the back.

    * Just got my cover so I wanted to put to use.

    * The Apple Smart Cover is made of better quality and has a better feel to it. Magnets are also much stronger.

    Had to sand down the sides of the Khomo hinge opening a little bit so that the cover can sit fine.
