    Hi guys. So I pre-ordered the new iPad today and was woundering if you guys have any suggestions on which case to buy. First question is, will the old iPad 2 cases fit? I like to type a lot so I was woundering if you guys can recommend me a keyboard case. Thanks in advance.

    If you're after a keyboard case, I'd strongly advise you wait for a iPad 3 specific one or await confirmation that existing ones work. Looks like looser, simpler cases will work fine, but more complex ones might struggle.

    The existing iPad 2 smart covers will work with the new iPad. I got this confirmed by Apple's phone support while I was preordering.

    Yeah, that's good news. It would have been a stinky trick if Apple had moved the magnets a little!

    I've searched on Amazon and other sites...Nothing yet. I'm waiting for the Griffin clear rear case, and the leather full body one. They will be released shortly. It's not like they didn't know this was coming!
