    . I have spent the past hour googling around and I can't find any bootleg smart covers anywhere. When the iPad 3 came out I got one for $12 no problem. I don't want a case just the cover. Is there any place that sells just a cover for less then $30-40?

    Hopefully they work for you. I know they mention they can be separated, I wonder though since I haven't really seen any postings here with examples of them separated. I know it's only $10-15 to get one and see but I'm trying to reel in my accessory addiction. Don't even want to tell how many cases I had for my iPad 2.

    if you are worried about price you can get apple branded ones for less on ebay.

    I looked a ton for a off brand that was similar, but they all seem to be junk. eBay can be dangerous because they sell it like its the real deal and its a cheapo knockoff. I am going to order an Invellop from Amazon this week, they seem to have the best reviews, and I buy with confidence since it ships from Amazon.

    I'm going naked save for a skin and Smart Cover. I'm addicted to the lightness

    The Besdata Ultra Thin Cover & Case from Amazon will does come apart. It was the one case I figured I'd try. Came today. The cover and the back case are two separate pieces. Fit and finish isn't same as my Apple one for my iPad2 but for $14 I'm not gonna complain.

    Thank you for this I think I will order the same color. I will be damned if I spend $40 on the Apple version

    Do these work well with skins over the back?
    I tested an Apple Smart Cover (non Air) and it didn't work at all. Are the side magnets in different areas now?
