I looked long and hard to find a pad folio style iPad 2 case and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the Booq Leatherette Booqpad. The white leather version coordinates nicely with a white iPad 2 and the access port for the 30-pin connector is appropriately sized.

For those who complained about the lack of hole for the rear facing camera, I have to ask why would you want one? Its not like you would hold up a 16-inch wide open Booqpad to take pictures. It only takes a few seconds to pull the iPad out if you really want to use the rear facing camera.

I bought this case because I like the blending of an old school notepad with the new school iPad. The iPad can do just about anything, but sometimes all you need a a piece of paper for a small note. It is also one of the slimmer folios that offers both a stylus/pen holder and a place for business cards.

I wasn't worried about the lack of camera hole. I don't see where I'll use an iPad as a camera too often.

The only problem I've had is the notepad itself. The binding is weak and has fallen apart in less than a week. Fortunately, a standard 6x9 notepad fits just fine.

UPDATE:

I originally rated this case 4 stars, and if it were well-made and durable, I'd stick to that rating.
However, after owning it 1 day, the seams inside came unglued. I contacted Pivot Gear, and they had me go through Booq to get a replacement - both companies provided fast and good service. The replacement I got had little tears and rubbed off sections on the synthetic leather, exposing yellow foam material in one spot. The seams were glued, but on closer inspection, I could see that they might quickly come unglued as the previous case had with a little use/wear. In reality, this doesn't affect the function of the product at all, but it looks bad and unprofessional, which is one of the reasons I wanted this case - I wanted a professional look. However, the case does not seem very durable in regards to these small details, and I fear it'll look quite worn rather quickly. I can't speak to the other booqpad options (leather, nylon, etc.), perhaps they're better quality. This black synthetic version, however, I can no longer recommend. If I were to buy another, I'd buy directly from Booq, as their prices are the same and they don't charge for shipping if you need to send it back to replace. Pivot Gear will accept returns, but deducts shipping costs both ways. Their service and communication, however, was very good, so I recommend both sellers.

**********************************************************************************************
This case is designed to hold your ipad securely, look professional, and have space for a notepad. It can be customized for left-handed or right-handed use.
It is well made, and does all of the above as claimed.

I agree with other reviewers who lament the lack of a camera hole for the rear camera, and it lacks any kind of stand function, but then again, it doesn't claim these features.

The materials are nice, it fits the ipad 2 well (which I was concerned about before purchasing since I read it fit the ipad 1 better, but the ipad 2 fits snug, and can be used with full body film protectors installed if desired), and looks good.

The nice thing about the design is that it's compatible with either iPad version, and will likely work with the next ipad to come out, giving the case longevity not offered by many of the ipad2-specific case designs.

If you're looking for a business-worthy case that lets you keep a pen and notepad in with your ipad, this one should be on your short list.

Likes:
* compact, lightweight
* all about the extra paper pad!
* extra slots are useful

Gripes:
* For the price, it could be a little better quality - especially on the interior.
* would love an outer pocket
* would love a way to stand up the iPad side
* needs a cover/strap for the paper pad to keep it from opening up
* needs corner protection for the iPad. Corners are totally exposed.

I could not say enough good things about this product. I chose this case after reviewing about 20 other cases. It has all the features that I was looking for in a case. I was looking for a case to carry my i-pad and make it look like a note book for teaching Sunday School class with. I teach older adults and didn't want to stir up trouble by using a computer in church. Second, I still wanted the ability to carry hard copy notes and this case has the ability to do that if I wish. yes you would have to fold the paper but with the snap on the front the pages won't fall out. Thirdly, I wanted a case that would hold the case tight and it does just that. once you have the i-pad in place there is no room for it to move around the case is secure.

I guess if I had to say a bad thing about this product is the fact its not leather but, you get a lot of elagent design without the cost of leather. there is deffently nothing wrong with the strength of the case.

Recent bought this I-Pad cover. The missing camera hole isn't a big deal to me. I was somewhat disappointed with the product. The sleeves or pockets are very tight. I can barely get two business cards in each. And trying to get them back out is another matter. Maybe as they are used they will become a little less difficult to use. The softness of the cover is very nice.

Great idea, I loved the written pad and pen/stylus holder so much I bought 3. When they arrived the cover of the case is sticky and the sticky wont come off. I tried water at first, then water with a tiny bit of detergent. I then tried using armor all on a different one. None of these things had any effect- they all still feel exactly the same. I would only suggest you buy this if you like the feeling of cheap synthetic leather peeling off your skin in hot humid weather, otherwise steer clear.

I love this item, it is very well designed and good construction for the price. Just note to use the camera you will need to flip the camera to the screen side, otherwise you will need to take it out of the case. There is no opening for the back camera lense, some people complained about that but it would look weird if it did (that's my opinion anyway). So except for that it's great. I would recommend this anyone, as protection and for having a nice place to write and keep notes.
