Just an OK Case
When I picked up my iPad Air on 11/1, I didn't want to take it home without a case, so I bought one of the new cases designed to c When I picked up my iPad Air on 11/1, I didn't want to take it home without a case, so I bought one of the new cases designed to cover both sides of the iPad. At $79 I expected it to be a gorgeous leather and very functional, but it's not. It really does not feel like leather at all, and I just have not been able to prop the iPad up on a table with the case, the way that I expected I could.. I am thinking about returning it for a refund. …

Great case; really adds to the iPad Air
I decided to get this case after asking an Apple employee if I could see one 'in action' so to speak. They brought one out from t I decided to get this case after asking an Apple employee if I could see one 'in action' so to speak. They brought one out from the back that had an iPad Air in it. I immediately decided to get it. I have prior experience with the Smart Case for a previous iPad (3) and didn't like it because the lip at the top seemed wide, clunky, and bulky. It could be that the new smaller form factor of the iPad Air allows it's Smart Case to be more pleasing. The top lip is narrow (like the bezel) and you hardly notice it. For my previous iPad I had both the Smart Case and a Smart Cover which I used in combination with a Belkin Snap Shield Secure. The Belkin case is a low profile shell (for the back) that was designed to accept the Smart Cover. I bring this up because it was my intention to use both setups and alternate them but since I disliked the older Smart Case so much I ended up never using it. For this new Smart Case, this is the only case I intend to get as I really like it. It's pricey as leather is the only choice, but if I had gotten the less expensive Smart Cover, I would have gotten an additional shell for the back so there would be extra cost there. I don't mind paying a little extra for a good solution like this. …

Hate the colors
I have been waiting on getting one of these cases for my iPad Air. I can't stand the boring colors. I had the red for my iPad 2. I have been waiting on getting one of these cases for my iPad Air. I can't stand the boring colors. I had the red for my iPad 2. But when I upgraded, I was hoping more colors would come out. They are still the same boring pastel colors. What about some nice Bright colors- blue, purple, pink, etc.
Will those ever be coming out or are we stuck in the pastel land. …
