    Good shell case for iPad 2?

    Look for a good iPad 2 shell case.

    So far this looks ok:

    Not really impressed with these smart covers from Apple (returned mine).

    Uwe,

    I've been using a Dodocase for my first version iPad. I'm not sure how you define "shell case," but I really like it. They're made in SF, and now make an iPad 2 version. (http://www.dodocase.com/)

    standard cover is fine for when the iPad 2 is being carried inside something else.
    dodocase looks good. i'm waiting for the moleskine ipad 2 case, I like moleskine notebook design.

    I'm not getting 2 but just looking at the cover I was a bit concerned about using it for other than in another carrier, as Godfrey said. I did think it was very innovative, esp. the fold back to make a stand. I mostly use the original Apple case (for about 11 mos now so it needs spruced up occasionally LOL) which is very utilitarian and works very well. I can stick it with Apple case on into a very funny looking but really useful, for me, holder from a little startup called Propup. Great to read with or type in my lap. I carry the Ipad in a messenger bag with camera too (Tenba) so the cover for 2 would be fine for that but there seem to be better covers. There was lots of activity with case makers before 2 came out so there should be nice ones out there.

    I have ordered a ZaggMate for iPad2, sight unseen. It looks good though on the photos.

    >I mostly use the original Apple case

    That is what I used for the iPad 1 and had no issues. Look for something like it but for iPad 2 (means openings for all the new ports and cameras).

    I look for something like these:

    I don't have an ipad yet, but I'm considering the ZooGue case when I get one. I like the way it lets you tilt the ipad at almost any angle.
