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

    Thanks

    Keep an eye out a few weeks after launch. I'm sure companies like Speck will make back only covers that will work with the smartcover (there's a bunch out there for the iPad 2, guessing they will make versions for the new one).

    This is the case I'm ordering as soon as it becomes available. It served my iPad 2 very well:

    I loved the back only Zagg Invisible Shield and plan on getting one for the 3rd Gen iPad as well.

    Anyone know if the Speck SmartShell for iPad 2 will fit on this? I have a smart cover already, so I'd like a back cover that has a little magnet on the back to hold the cover in place when it's folded back. Are there any other back covers that will do the trick?

    I just bought a XCase TPU snap-on case that accommodates smart covers from XGear on Ebay for $16.29 that works fine. Shipped from California it took only two days to arrive in Maryland.

    The iPad 2 version works well on the 3 also. So that's always an option. Of course one designed exactly for the 3 would be better.

    I ended up ordering one of these, the Incipio Smart Feather case for the new iPad. It's pretty much perfect for what I want, with the exception of it having an extra magnet in the back for holding the smart cover in place when folded back. However, I think I'm just going to buy a small rare earth magnet and superglue it to the case for this purpose.

    I loaned mine to a buddy to test on his 3rd gen iPad... it fit with a little "persuasion" and then it happened... one of the little tabs on the back cover snapped off... now it won't stay on my iPad2 or his 3rd gen iPad. #fail

    Yes, that would be a fail. Most of the reviews on the Belkin case say it's not very durable, so I suppose if you needed that persuasion, it was bound to fail. Mine snapped on pretty well. Obviously there must be a bit of a variance when it comes to the production of the Belkins, even if it's minuscule.

    That is a great case, ordered mine this morning. Also the plastic resists dulling unlike a lot of other plastic covers.

    There is a back cover that works with the smart cover. It assists by locking down the smart cover to prevent it from coming off. iMore either mentioned it on a podcast or on the web. I just can not remember what the name of the cover was. A little help please for this old man.

    It's probably the Incipio Smart Feather. I linked to it in my post up above.

    I just got the Targus Vuscape from BB. Love it! No issues with the magnet not putting the New Ipad to sleep. I like how it fits in, the edges are flexible, but when you shake it, the Ipad doesn't go anywhere, its very secure. I like the multiple viewing angles too. Simple in design.

    So are you saying it does not have the magnet on the back to secure the smart cover flat to the back?

    Correct, it does not have a magnet on the back to hold the smart cover in place, which is something I wanted. However, I really like the case otherwise, and I have an order on the way from J&K for a nice strong magnet to glue onto the back for it. Should work perfectly.
