Taking a bit of a survey. If and when you receive your new iPad, please test it with your iPad 2 case. Let me know what case you have and if it fits.

I purchased the Otterbox Reflex case from the EverythingiCafe store.
It was advertised as a case for the iPad 2. It will fit the 3, HOWEVER, it is such a tight fit I think it would peel a screen protector off the screen!
Took me at least 5 minutes to get each half off and there is a bit of marking left on the back. Nothing terrible though.

We will call it some light marring, not scratches.

I had the Belkin Snap Shield...no dice. The iPad Smart Cover works fine, but no to the Snap Shield. It's going back to Best Buy. Scratches horribly, as well...doesn't hold up well at all...

I had poor luck with the Belkin snap shield with my old iPad 2 anyways. I bought the shield and put it on but then took it off because some crud had gotten underneath the shield and it just snapped. Luckily I was able to return it to best buy for a full refund, but I then decided that a colorful skin would work better.

As for the iPad smart cover from my iPad 2 it fits perfectly on my new iPad.

I used the Apple smart cover and I got from Amazon the Smart cover snap on case. It only cost $4 and it fits perfectly.

When I heard that the new iPad could be larger...I' ll have to admit, I was a bit worried that it might no fit the "ole case" (which is what I call it). Happy to report no issues whatsoever.

Hate to tell you that I think the new iPad sticks out a bit in that old case of yours. I would be worried that it would fall out and break.

Double-sided heat tape bonds it to the lid. Functional and beneficial. The wife doesn't care much for it in bed, but its perfect when sitting in a chair. The airlines hate me...

I never bought a regular case. I use the SmartCover and a Targus neoprene netbook sleeve, s they've easily transitioned to my new toy.

BoLo ... Thinking about doing the same. Where did you buy your Mareware? Did they make a new case for the New iPad or is it the one I see on the net for iPad 2? Cost?

Thanks!
