    I dunno if you're interested or if they fit, but the Green and Red ones for the iPad Air (1st gen) were $19.99 at Bestbuy. I'm buying one later and I'll report back.

    I bought this case from microcenter (they listed it as Air 2) and while it fits perfectly the side button is misaligned and the camera hole doesnt align. I'm thinking about just cutting the divided part on the side where the volume rocker is (since the second hole on the side is made for mute switch).



    Is that the only option right now?? I really don't like the smart cases as it doesn't protect the back and the landscape mode cant be adjusted.

    I'm just reusing the Smart Cover from my original Air because it fits perfectly, and the Belkin back shell, which is a little loose and partially covers the rear camera, but it'll do the job until a proper one gets released.

    I gave up after searching the internet and store for awhile, and just went ahead and bough the Smart Case from Apple. Waiting for a keyboard case to come out. Will probably go with Zagg or I saw another one online that I may consider, if I can find it again. Amazon had dates of expected release posted on some of theirs. A few of the cases were supposed to come out yesterday, but I haven't been back to check yet. I would much rather buy one from a place where I can see it and hold it first, to be sure that I like it.

    $19.99? Best Buy.com shows $37.99 and no store stock on the red. I have one on order. I will price match when I'm able.

    Bought a black smart case from the Apple Store. It was also the first and only time I used Applepay.:apple:

    I really like this case. I am not sure I will be changing it out anytime soon.

    We bought 2 "iPad Air" cases from Staples today for $25 total, just went in with my wife's Air 2 and kept trying until we found ones that fit. They are the Case Logic Snap View and Targus Triad. Both fit, camera hole is a little misaligned but doesn't cover the actual lense. Neither have on/off functionality but for the price it'll work until manufacturers ramp up the good designs for the Air 2.

    Have you received it yet? How does it fit? I was considering purchasing this one but a few reviews say that it fits loose and falls off. :/

    Got that (Poetic Apple iPad Air 2 Case [GraphGrip Series]) for my wife she is not very happy with it granted there is nothing wrong with it other than the color was not the one shown on the picture (Lavender) it looked like a hot pink instead it was a not so nice light purple.

    Also makes the iPad A2 very heavy and she doesn't want to keep using just because of that. She still understands it will protect the device very well but I personally will look for some lighter solutions IMHO :D

    I'm personally waiting for the Tech21 ones to come out. I absolutely love their cases.

    I personally buy most everything for my electronics on amazon or ebay. Sometimes the things on amazon ship from Hong Kong, which takes forever in the mail, so I just by them on ebay. Check both!
