So today I walked into a local retailer just browsing for some cables and a case caught my eye. The clerk told me it was an iPad 2 case but we could try and see if it worked on the new iPad, and it did. As you can hopefully see on the pictures it's a exact copy of the smart cover (material even feels a bit nicer, the colorful part at least) but it's connected to a hardshell plastic back. The material almost fully wraps around the back giving me the impression it's very well connected to the plastic. It's very thin and seems to offer very decent protection, without covering the bezel at all. Magnets work perfectly and so do the stands, it has the exact 4 folds a real smart cover has. Cutouts are very nice and everything is perfectly accesible, with only the mic 'cutting it close' (but still fully usable, I tested it). Personally I'm not to crazy about the white plastic, but it's fine. Also it has edges that a very similar in sharpness as a bare iPad has. Enjoy some pictures and please ask if you have questions. The brand is Choiix and I paid 24,95 ($33) for it. This is my third case, I have the Marware CEO iPad 3 thing and a GeckoCover hardback folio (which is pretty much is that Poetic hard back one rebranded) and I think this will be my go to case for a good time to come. As always, third time is the charm.
