Yes.. color doesn't change the physical characteristics of the product.

I feel the Apple one is overpriced. I'm thinking of getting a generic 3rd party one from ebay around $14-$15 to hold me over until I find a better case that is released.

You should do that. I have a friend that got the $70 leather one and it's worn and pealing! For $70 it better last for 2 years.

I love apple but yes the smart cover is crazily overpriced. Go for the generic! I have one that covers the back also for only 19.99! And the cover does everything that the apple one does, plus protects the back. The apple geeks even complimented it. When products are made from the same material and does not require 150IQ to assemble then generic doesn't matter :D

PM me if you want a photo!

Why wouldn't the friend have Apple replace it if it's worn and peeling within the first year? Seems that'd be a no-brainer if my $70 leather smart cover were failing within the one year warranty period! It is genuine, right, not one of those scum 3rd party sellers on Amazon passing off fakes as the real thing?

I know there are people who had problems with them, but my year old black leather cover is doing just fine.

I had a hunch the 3rd gen ipads might work with the smart covers, so took a gamble and kept it when I sold my iPad2. Glad that paid off. :D

Yes it was real apple smart cover! B/c it wasnt bad enough that he'd go in and do an exchange, he's not the sort who care about that as much.

Good for you! ;) Saved some money !

No, it will not work on the new ipasd. You should really think about buying the new ipad though, heard the smart cover still work pretty well on it.
