    In the brick stores, not apple.com.
    Both BBs I went to had most colors but not the blue or red leather.

    The red cover is only at Apple stores. All the poly covers were in low supply at the store I was at today. (Even the pink.) A lot of leather covers though.

    I was going to go for the leather but they do seem to wear out faster from early reports. I'll go for the lime green, and hopefully snag a white iPhone 5 + green bumper to match.

    2 of the local Apple stores are out of blue, a little bit of everything else left, but not much.

    All colors in stock here @ the apple store. Even had a few iPads left this morning.
    I went in and bought a new MacBook Pro so I looked around.

    Blue and red leather appear to be the top sellers at the two Apple stores in San Antonio. All the other ones were readily available today.

    Transparent.

    Joking aside, unlike the iPads, these are things that can be manufactured and restock pretty easily and quickly. So... worry not.

    Checked with two apple stores and three best buys to get an orange one. Finally found one.

    They had all of 'em at my local Apple Store this morning.

    I remember when the iPhone 4 launched, they had no bumpers at all and it took awhile to get them in stores. I think this time around, they wanted to make sure they had plenty of covers. Although, it seems now they have more covers than actual iPads available!

    Im sure the margin o profit is much greater on the smartcovers than the ipads. so they would love it if you bought one for every occasion, like Jobs said. lol

    Blue was sold out first at my BB, then pink. They had plenty of the grey.

    I was torn between orange and green. Still not quite sure, but I think I'll prefer the green.

    From what I have seen in 3 Apple stores and 1 Best Buy, orange has sold out the fastest. It was the only one not available at the time I bought my iPad 2.

    Amen..but keep buying those covers! Stock has dipped recently due to japan and these covers with HUGE gross profit can only help my position. Like the I4 bumpers we are hoping you'll "collect them all"....as steve directed.....


    Yes i have one...that's ONE.....no use having more than that when it's a cover not a case....at home I use a grey cover and icarbon back, for business meeetings, it'll be a portenza.....
