    I ordered a clear iPad 2 back cover from Amazon for less than $5 including shipping. It arrived yesterday and fits great. I am using it with my SmartCover until I figure out exactly how I will use my new iPad.

    Yup just make sure you get the right one. They have on that says for the 2 and one that says 3rd generation. The packaging is completely redesigned.

    I used the Belkin snap on for the back of my 2; had to buy a second one as as first cracked horribly despite normal use. My second one has a crack on the lower left side; cracked within 2 weeks of use; very annoying as I really like the concept of the back shield and the look of the Belkin one. I'm using it on my new iPad until I get a back shield made specifically for it. The fit of this one is a little loose on the new iPad. I also use a smart cover.

    Just got my Incipio Smart Feather back case in yesterday. It fits perfectly, and the iridescent grey color goes great with my dark grey smart cover. I also really like how it locks the smart cover in place so my six-year-old can't accidentally pull it it off during use. Once I get my magnets in and mod this thing it'll be perfect.

    You will get regret if you buy an iPad 2 smart cover for New iPad 3, for ipad 2 smart cover will not work on iPad 3, the auto sleep/wake up function is not work...we test this and it don't work..
    Hmm, not exactly. With third party smart covers, yes, there have been some issues with some of them not working. However, the official Apple smart covers work just fine with no problem on the new iPad.

    So I got my magnets in today. You know, it was a great idea in theory, but in execution... not so much. At least, not in the way I managed to execute it.

    Protip - If you get too much superglue on your case, DO NOT TRY TO GET IT OFF WITH ACETONE! It will eat the finish right off of your case. That said, though there are now a few cosmetic blemishes on my case, the magnets work perfectly to hold the smart cover in place where it needs to be, so functionally it's exactly what I wanted.

    So i got one yesterday, made sure it said 3rd generation on it, and it seemed to fit ok. After using the ipad tonight though for an hour or so, the sides of the ipad got kind of annoying. Sharp edges from the belkin case basically. Especially if held in landscape.

    It doesn't feel at all like the ipad 2 did with that belkin case. It's been a month or so since i sold it so hard to remember. But i don't remember sharp edges or it being this uncomfortable especially held in landscape view. Maybe i got a bad case or something.. I feel like i'm using a giant palm pre. Got ridges in my palms.

    Anyone else having problems with this?

    I agree. After 2 days of use, I'm not liking it. I will keep it until hopefully the Incase snap comes out and then I'll return it.

    Do you have any advice on what back covers would work with the Apple leather smart cover?

    Thanks
    Search for Luvvitt on Amazon (make sure it says compatible with iPad3). They are pricey @ $30, but well worth the money. It fits BOTH iPad 2 & 3 just fine - it is of a flexible plastic material but very durable. It was so good, I ordered 3 more for other iPads in the household. The best design I've seen that works with smartcovers.

    The official Apple iPad2 smartcovers work just fine on new iPad. We have 3.

    I got my Incipio Smart Feather case today. So far I am loving it. No, it doesn't have magnets, but I will get one with magnets when they come out. For now this case is perfect, and it wasn't that expensive either.

    You are only 50% correct. I have a smart cover from the iPad 2 and mine works fine on the iPad 3. If your smart cover from the 2 was purchased earlier rather than later, you may have the magnet issue. Apple changed this sometime during the year.

    Well, As to protect your expensive device from damages like scratches or from dust there are many skin covers as described here. I am looking for the Ipad Skin Covers for my new Ipad to protect it.

    I grabbed another Belkin Snap Shield hoping i might have better luck. Smoke colored this time instead of clear. This is much better than the last one. I think i can lay that case search to rest now. Though i might keep an eye on iSkin Solo Smart reviews. I'm not sure how i'd like having the smart cover locked in though or the ports covered.

    So smart cover, belkin back, stm stash for when it leaves the house with room for accessories.

    Belkin going back. I have a Incipio Smart Feather arriving tomorrow. Reviews are excellent. Can't wait to try it.
