I started searching on Amazon for a solution. However, due to the new thickness, and magnet changes, there just wasn't any choices available in the short term. For a while, all the folks who "think in advance" who bought back or front covers for the NEW iPad, with assumption iPad 2 accessory still works, ran into various issues.
No more. This one IS made for the new iPad. I ordered it almost the first day it become available on Amazon, and through Prime,Overnight. I put this on today, it fits perfectly. I do feel a bit of the weight with this and the smart cover, but now I feel safe to take this baby to everywhere.
This also comes with a screen film and a cleaning cloth.
As of today- 3.27.2012, there is only black available on Amazon. I believe Incipio website directly sells various colors, but you can't beat Prime's fast delivery.
Note: if you get this black one, and want to match same color on smart cover, you have to buy the black leather smart cover, since Apple doesn't make black Polyurethane ones.
My biggest issue with the Apple Smart Cover was that I had a tendency to pick it up by the cover on occasion. The magnets are not designed to support the weight of the iPad. This case is notched to cover the spine of the smart cover, where it attaches to the iPad.
All cutouts for buttons, speakers, etc. are precise and present no interference with the operation of the iPad.
I recommend this case anyone with a smart cover that is looking for something to protect areas not covered by the smart over and to secure the smart cover in place.
Two things totally set this cover apart from any other, and a third thing is rare. FWIW, reason one and three were the most important to ME. YMMV.
1) It locks the Smart Cover in place by covering the center panel of the hinge. Now my Smart Cover doesn't come off as easily...a plus in my eyes....but should I want it off for any reason, it's easily accomplished. I didn't know it had this feature when I bought it and I know of no other back cover that has this functionality, but I appreciated it immediately, and on-going. It's a game changer.
2) It's a gorgeous shade of red....a "blue" red for those who care about colors in such terms...and a dead ringer for the Apple Smart Cover Red. All the other reds I've seen lean to the "tomato" or yellow side of red. For me, it mattered, (color is very important to me), but even I'll admit it's a "fluff" concern. I would have kept this cover had it been butt ugly. Mostly because of reason #1.
3) It allows the iPad to fit in a Logitech keyboard when in place. For some reason I've yet to read a single review that addresses this issue. The Logitech keyboard turns the iPad into a defacto laptop. I don't use it at home, but I use and appreciate it extensively on the road. Finding a cover that allows the iPad to still fit into that brand of (wonderful) keyboard is a rarity, and the other back covers I found that also allow it are unsatisfactory for some other reason. The one, small negative here is that I used to make an iPad sandwich that consisted of the back cover, the iPad, the smart cover and then the keyboard.Read more ›
One of my favorite features of the cover is that it snaps over the smart cover, keeping it in place. I have read that some people do not like this... I think it's great - but that's something to think about before you buy. The only thing that I would change if I could is to put a small magnet or metal strip in the edge of the cover, so that when you fold the smart cover back it would hold (like in my old Speck cover for my iPad 2)... but in my opinion it's really not a big deal.
All in all, it's a great cover. Feels great, looks great, and doesn't add but an un-noticeable difference in weight to the iPad

I had been under the impression that this case included a cover. It does not. Or at least the one I received does not. It's just a back case. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Charles M. Adams
Works well with IPad Smart Cover. It hooks over the magnet on the IPad Smart Cover so the Smart Cover does not come loose.Published 5 months ago by James P. Benassi

The product is fine, however be sure to read the description, it works WITH the Smart Cover, this does not have a cover for the front of the iPad. It is simply the back cover. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Greg Wartes
