    SureGrip, ClickStand, Smart battery and full glass guard for the screen. I dont know much about their cases, but looks like a great overal package for the iPad's protection. Anyone ordered one of these yet?!

    I'm looking for a case myself. I went to their site:

    http://www.ivyskin.com/ipad-cases/ipad-smartcase.html

    and found the description of the case wanting. I can't really tell whether or not it has all the pitched angles as the apple case.

    I like the battery charger component of it. And I like the overall look and feel. But I want the two fundamental angles that that Apple case allows.

    It's "in stock."

    AND, it's "shipping in July 2010."

    Still in search of the best iPad case

    Eye cancer?!!! What do you mean ;)

    Anyway, I'm still searching for the perfect iPad case. Between all the plastic/hardplastic/silicon cases, I like the SmartCase but today I came across this leather case from Vaja that caught my attention:

    So far it's between SmartCase and Vaja case

    The case looks interesting but when I go to buy it, Firefox warns me the site is not trusted. Too bad.

    i never thought anyone could need MORE battery life on the ipad :p

    i get 2-4 days of use out of mine on average. it would be cool to get an external battery that works with both ipad and iphoen though.

    Would be interesting, if it wasn't so ugly. I'd wrap my iPad in tinfoil before I'd use this case

    went with the T5

    Just ordered the Quattro-T5 version of this case, which is the same thing as Smartcase but without the battery. They told me the battery pack is an option that can be purchased later if I decided to go with it. But for the case, i didnt find any other case in the market to cover the screen with a solid glass like the T5. I absoluitly hate those film protectors, no matter how you install those films, you'll get a bubble.
    I'll post a review when I recive the case. Just ordered the Quattro-T5 version of this case, which is the same thing as Smartcase but without the battery.

    Looks ugly really. I really don't need any back up batteries for my iPad.

    And now your light iPad weighs more than a MBP or MBA.

    I had one of these for my first iPhone. Generally liked it until I dropped the phone 2 feet onto a tile floor onto the corner of the case. The glass shattered and I noticed a scratch the plastic film I had under the glass. I was using an Incase iPhone, so I kept a Powersupport plastic screen protector on the iPhone.

    I could have scratched the plastic screen protecter while removing the case. But the point is the case was a little dangerous to remove once the glass shattered into great long shards. The glass is really thin by the way. I suppose in order to make it work with the touch screen and keep the weight down.

    The case did its job though. Just be careful if you get into a situation where the glass shatters.
