I am wondering what happened to the iCoat Slim Y+ review that was posted earlier. I asked some questions about it and now the thread is gone!I've only seen a German Wholesale site advertising these cases and it says 'coming soon'.
Have you seen the iLuv origami folio? I like that they have solid colors but based on the photos I've seen, it seems thicker than the iCoat-Slim-Y+ and covers the front of the iPad a tad more than I fancy. I could be wrong...it'd certainly be nice to see both of them in-person or at least a product demo...soon.
Reading this sent me off in search of one, it looks like exactly what I had envisions for protecting my iPad. But, like everyone else, I haven't been able to find anywhere selling it in the U.S.Anyone know where/if this is available online anywhere? I can't find it anywhere. Their website lists some US dealers but I still can't find it on their websites. It looks pretty nice!
I'm sorry to hear that...wonder if it's a one-off or a design flaw. It would still be nice to test one out in-person but I've yet to hear back from Ozaki about when people could expect to see them in the UK and US and my online searches have not been very successful .I bought one today (I live in Singapore) and the smart cover function wouldn't work at all. The fitting is really good and I like it a lot but had to return it because of the cover. The magnet isn't strong enough to keep the cover closed when I turned it over
Based on what people are saying here: http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/ipad-sanctum-311/any-luck-ozaki-icoat-slim-y-smart-cover-new-ipad-3652603.html, it seems to not work well with the new iPad. Hopefully Ozaki will fix this very soon and have it available in the UK and US.Watched the video on their site and was very impressed. I'd been considering the Incase Snap Case if they updated it for the new iPad since it gave additional viewing angles and secured the Smart Cover but I'd love to give a Slim-Y+ a try since it seems to fit all my needs in one design.
Hopefully the issue with sleep/wake was a one-of or was resolved after the previous poster. Anyone have any info on buying one in the US?
I emailed them too and this was their response:Finally! Found a non-Wholesale and U.S.-based company that sells the Ozaki cases. I sent an email asking about the sleep/wake function as it seems that some people have had issues with it on the new iPad (apparently no problems with the iPad 2) and have been returning them. I'll post what I hear back from them.
Slim-Y: With stylus onlyI emailed them too and this was their response:
"I have also read that the magnets do not work correctly, but have tried a few and the ones that I tried worked fine.
As for the difference between the Y and the Y++ they are the same model just from different suppliers.
As for the Y/++ models being from different suppliers, I am not sure that alone would account for the price difference. There must be a difference in the materials (not evident on the website, but they are different colors). Anyone else know the answer to this?
I bought mine last Sat and smart cover feature work without issue.I bought one today (I live in Singapore) and the smart cover function wouldn't work at all. The fitting is really good and I like it a lot but had to return it because of the cover. The magnet isn't strong enough to keep the cover closed when I turned it over
Awesome! Thank you for sharing. I can't wait for this to be available in the US. Where did you get your case from?Just bought Slim-Y and wanna share some opinion
1. Really love the touch feel of the case
2. Very easy to fold in Y-shape (internal or external)
3. Stand firm either in landscape / portrait mode (touch the screen with some force in both mode with no issue)
4. Thin enough when i just hold it and flip over the cover to back.
Some images as below
Hi, thanks for the link. I hope you have luck in getting the case. That site seems to have really negative reviews with buyers saying the never receive ordered items (seller's response is that it is OOS), or that shipping ends up taking weeks vs. the 8-10 days they indicate.http://www.gimmedigi.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=4227
If you are looking to buy one but couldn't find it in the US. Try this site, they ship from hong kong for free.
I have been looking for a while too, finally find a place that I can order online. Tried to ask them on the ozaki FB but never get any respons. :-/
Anyway I am also looking for the stylus R from ozaki. Anyone know where I can get one? Thanks!
Hi, I bought it from Hong Kong last week, and they just release the Slim-Y series while Slim-Y+ and Slim-Y++ will be release on early Apr here.Awesome! Thank you for sharing. I can't wait for this to be available in the US. Where did you get your case from?
Just to clarify,Slim-Y: With stylus only
Slim-Y++: With stylus PEN
that is a plastic to cover the slot that you could slide in the stylus holder. Unfortunately my adonit Jot Pro couldn't fit into that stylus holder because the jot pro is slightly too thick.Just to clarify,
The black part at the back cover of my Slim-Y is not actually a stylus (just pull it out and can't write! >_<)
So, only Slim-Y+ and Slim-Y++ come with Stylus pen~~
