    Default Cases compatible with the Smart Cover?
    Along with many others, I love the Smart Cover's functionality, but don't like the fact it doesn't protect the back.

    Does anyone know if more case makers will consider making their cases Smart Cover compatible? I particularly love Incipio products, but it doesn't seem like this idea is in their plans.

    I did find this one, but it isn't available yet:

    I like it. I plan on doing the same kind of thing. get a smart cover but also want something to cover the back that doesn't add a lot of bulk to it. I already bookmarked this for future purchase.

    Came across this old thread after a Google search, though I'd share my findings for a compatible case for 15 dollars on Amazon.

    I just bought one from XGear and it arrived in the mail today,

    it's not bad but pricey! $36 for a piece of plastic on the back.

    Here's the link:

    whoa this one looks nice,

    wish I got this one instead, no price tho.

    EDIT: After using it for a while, I actually advise AGAINST buying the xgear black one... it's a finger print/oil magnet

    Here is what I ordered... I bought just the back for $19.95 plus shipping. And it works well with the smart cover also! Real easy to apply.

    I added a gelakin to the back of my iPad 2. I think it's a perfect combo with the smart cover. It only offers scratch protection but that's all I need.

    I just got my microshell case from Marware. I like the way it fits but the two ridges down the back kinda bug me, when I ordered it I thought that it looked like grooves in the back. But I just saw that Incipo is coming out with a feather case that will work with the smart cover.*

    Here is the feather link.

    And here's the microshell link

    No clue what the ridges are for. Grip maybe, but imo in would just sand them off my case.

    I am going to order one of these also... the main reason is because they offer the colors of the smart cover...

    The Smart feather® for iPad 2 allows full coverage of your device while in use with Apple's Smart Cover. We have designed our feather® color selection to match your Smart Cover for a classic look. If you prefer to mix and match, an array of 11 colors offers plenty of selection.

    yeah I was looking at that one too. I want something that is going to be low profile and not add bulk to something that is already thin. Just something to protect the back from scratches so if I decide to sell it later for the iPad 3 it will be in good shape.

    Think I will get this and the smart cover.

    ion-factory CarbonCover for iPad 2 here something that comes with a smart cover of it's own. I like this slot I may just replace my already dirty smart cover.

    I got the back for my iPad and I am in love with it! It matches the smart cover color and texture. They did a excellent job on it and I am VERY pleased with it! Makes me want to order another color to have on hand now.. lol

    It also comes with a screen protector!
