    Does anyone know of a case that has the same functionality of the Apple case? I'm just tired of this casing getting so dirty.

    Try this guy on eBay, the case is similar to the Apple case, but made out of portfolio-type leather with white stitching, very Coach like.

    Search eBay for PDair

    If money is no object, Piel Frama makes one that is awesome. Extremely sturdy and stands up well.

    The incase Book Jacket is NOT LEATHER. While it doesn't explicitly state that on their own website, it does state the following on Apple's site:

    # Durable faux-leather construction with secure elastic band closure

    Don't get the incase convertible. Nice to have multiple angles, but it won't stay in the position for long. :mad: That, and the ipad keeps sliding out the opening when it is sitting at an angle.

    Is this the right name? This is someone in China with 14 feedbacks, nothing for sale, and the last feedback was months ago.

    I just got one from Marware. It flips up and has a stand that closes with a magnetic latch. I haven't spent much time with it yet.

    Only $28 bucks, much more cheaper than others. I think I will get one

    If you'll consider non-leather, the MacAlly Bookstand has been getting great reviews and has the same functionality as the official case.

    hmm. that could definitely be a problem, especially with leather which will loosen over time. think I'll steer clear of this one. they seem to have specifically omitted any angle that might show what's holding it in place.

    I disagree. I could be wrong, but if you look closely at the white stitching at the top, you can see that it curves and disappears as if it's following the same type of "tab" that tucks in behind the iPad to hold it in place. :confused:

    Whoever gets one needs to let us know how the iPad slides in and what (if anything) holds it from sliding out. Shipping time of 2-3 weeks is a bummer.

    I like my Marware Eco-Flip a lot. They are a bit difficult to find, but there are some sellers on Amazon Marketplace that have them in stock.

    I love the look of this! I will be waiting for your review. Please post when you can, and let us know if there is a flap that tucks under the iPad, in the same manner as the Apple case.
    Thanks!

    Y'all are not worried about the magnet closures?

    There's no magnetic disc in this thing, and its not using a CRT. So no.
