New iPad (HD, 3, etc.) too big for bracket,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Twelve South (12-1114) HoverBar for iPad 2 (Personal Computers)
Unlike many iPad accessories, ones that say they are for the iPad 2 and work fine on the newest iPad (March 2012), the bracket that clamps onto the iPad doesn't work with the newest iPad. I think the thickness of the new iPad is just a few millimeters bigger than the clamp can snap to.
Also, although the goose-neck bar feels stiff, slowly over time, it starts to droop. Again, maybe this is because of the extra weight of the newest iPad.
The quality is excellent, and it is always a really nice touch when the packaging is high-quality. I think it is mainly my fault for assuming that this version would work perfectly for the newest iPad.
I would recommend to Twelve South, that they update their product description warning iPad 3 owners that this won't work well with this newest version...and that maybe an iPad 3 version is coming soon or something.
BTW, I also own the Twelve South BookBook iPhone/wallet. I love it, and I get comments about it all the time. I highly recommend this.

I've been able to get my iPad 3 into the bracket, but it definitely doesn't feel comfortable. I'm having the same drooping problem you reported. I can't really hold it against Twelve South, it's not their fault... but I like this setup so much I really wish it worked with the new iPad.
