Good show! You will not be disappointed. I have made a few purchases in my life that I regret. The price of Apple products always makes my stomach churn a little, but I have never regretted buying something from Apple.

Hi Paul. Hopefully, it won't be too long. My putting the NICOT/NT on a 12-month plan six months ago has put a crimp in my budget. One of our church members told me last night (and he's the IT guy for his company) that they just received a bunch of iPads for board members and upper level staff, so he would be bringing his to show me within a week or so. That may push me into so creative budgeting!

I know that feeling too!  That's a great resource, and I hope one day soon you get the chance to read it on your new iPad.

Thanks. That's something to look forward to. I have this idea, perhaps just part of the ongoing attempt to justify getting an iPad (!), that I will be able to do more focused, less distracted, study on an iPad than on my notebook computer.

All I can say is that I am wowed with the nice size font when reading my Logos books and the page size compared with what I was used to with the rooted Nook Color. I find it a joy to use the new iPad. Sell something and get one is my thought!

I will let you know more when i have my iPad tuesday at the latest.if you are talking about using it as a stand the leather strap secures it well for a stand in  either viewing positions. as for in bed i will let you know by wednesday...

thanks, Dan.  I am noticing the price, about 3 times more than others I am looking at on amazon.  that may count me out right now.  but I would still be interested in your first hand report.

I am very pleased with my iPad and BOOKBOOK case. it works well and protects the iPad well, I am not sad to have purchased this case although it is pricey i am very happy with it. I did take a small rubber/felt pad with a a small magnet from a pair of magnetic earrings, and now when i open the BookBook it turns on automatically and stencilled on a cross.

I'm with alabama on this.  I didn't realize they had a cool cover like yours.  I assume they have several choices?  I'll have to plan for a Christmas gift request, maybe?!  I ended up with a cheaper "INVELLOP" brand.  It was recommended and had good reviews (save for several with ipad3s that didnt work so well with it).  I was a bit disappointed in the quality of the one I received, but it is not bad.  just not as nice as I expected.  But it'll serve a purpose.

Just 2 basic designs Red and Black, although I believe being hand made they are each a bit unique i.e.. each one is hand finished so the distressing is all different. My spine is not nearly as distressed as the red one on the website. The black version is a bit plainer but i think it  has a more elaborate spine design. The BOOKBOOK looks like a very worn journal or similar book. the black one is marked as volume XII, a nod to the company's name Twelve South. But it is very strong but has the feel of a comfortable favourite old volume.

The iPad cover Lock/Unlock setting is the same on the New iPad as it is on the iPad 2, both have the on/off option.

Not exactly. Apple changed the polarity of the magnets, so if you have an iPad 2 case it may not trigger the wake/sleep function of the new iPad.

Something else to consider for anyone undecided between iPad 2 or iPad 3:

iPad 1st Gen has 256 MB ram and crashes often on apps needing lots of memory. Using Tabs in the browser, pages need to keep downloading all the time.

iPad 2nd Gen has 512 MB ram, as does the iPhone 4S (unsure on other models).

iPad 3rd Gen has 1 GB ram, and apps that used to crash on iPad 1 now seem fine. Maybe less Logos crashes, but too new to know yet. Of course the new HD screen makes text way better. Speed is faster than Gen 1. Browser sessions way better, and less page refresh / re-downloads, due to increased ram.

Bottom line: The iPad 3 has more going for it than only the new  display.

So then when I turn the feature "off" it should lock and unlock with the old covers, right?! Wink  Because when I have it "on" it doesn't work right...so it's just that all the bits have been flipped?!
