    I think so - only .6mm thicker. All other dimensions are the same and the port locations look identical. Have an expensive iPad 2 case, and shame to waste it.

    I doubt the snug fit, snap on cases will work.

    hows that so? the case wont fit because its thicker, if it was THINNER most should work fine but its the opposite here. the ipad 3 is Thicker.

    Yes, but only .6 mm thicker. So soft cases that have a little stretch to them will probably work (leather, vinyl, etc.). Form fitting hard cases probably not.

    I got a really nice looking all leather case on eBay for $17. From what I've read iPad3...or whatever we're calling it...should fit nicely. We'll see.

    Casecrown is already advertising that their iPad 2 cases (very highly rated) will work with the new iPad. Snap-in type cases will most likely no longer work.

    I was wondering the same.

    We have a Targus Truss case and am hoping it will fit.

    I have the Zagg aluminum case with the built-in Logitech keyboard. It "closes" by putting the "face" of the iPad 2 into the keyboard. This type of case should work find for my "new" iPad, but I still went to Zagg's site and got a fancy new carbon fiber case that has a keyboard. I fly a lot, and this is a great airline tray table setup.

    Any polycarbonate snap case will probably not fit.
