    For those that really like cases. I never thought about case shortages. I have the hex code folio preordered now. Next launch I will preorder a case way ahead of time. All the good cases sold out the first day.

    Yes. I'm highly annoyed that there are not more cases to choose from now.

    I prefer a folio type case.

    I am very particular. Don't like the portfolios that cover the front bezel and those are the ones that fit ipad3. I prefer the form fitting cases.

    The good ones all sold out. I looked pretty hard. There are a bunch of crap ones left.

    Hard to pre order a case when it seemed as though most manufacturers weren't aware of the slight design change. If you're preordering then you're lining up for a product that doesn't even exist, which would be tough. You could be waiting longer than you would if you just bought a case today.


    There are many options out there today. May not be as many as there were for the other iPads but you're just over a week past launch so what can anyone really expect?

    What he ^ said. How can anyone pre order a case when the newer(s) iPad next year is unknown to anyone or what it will even look like until launch ? :confused:

    I think most of the new iPad cases were actually iPad 2 cases that were re-labeled. Tekserve had a selection of iPad 2 cases that they said worked with the new iPad. I bought one, but it simply didn't well at all. I took it back and ordered Lexington from Incipio. I hope it's ok.
