    Guys ano tingin nyo mas ok, iPad in leather case or naked with silicone, grip vue or that switch easy like poly case? I'm wondering if using it with leather case can make it thick enough like notebook and defeat the thin form factor of the iPad. Ano prefer mo and why?

    IMO:

    leather: makes it too bulky

    silicon: can gather dust inside. and moves it around, can scratch the metal back.

    polcarbonate: nice thin and shows the beauty of the ipad's industrial design. switcheasy nude is a great example. wish it was available here locally.

    here's a link:
    http://www.calvinshub.com/2009/07/invisibleshield-now-in-sm-megamall/

    though the ipad is not listed im sure meron yun. sila magiinstall for you.
    ill have the back of the ipad protected with invisishield. they say the material is too "rubbery" kaya di recommended for screen (your finger does not glide). i plan to pair it with an anti glare screen protector. then have the whole package in a switcheasy nude case, carry it in an incase neoprene sleeve. great overkill combo that does not make the ipad bulky... it does blow the wallet.

    my take on the case issue...

    the apple case is perfect if you're concerned with the thin form factor and screen protection. not so much protection from drops tough...

    marware makes a very fine leather case that protects from drops but makes the ipad thicker

    silicone cases ase great to prevent slippage but does nothing to protect the screen

    my solution?

    for around town: apples case plus neoprene sleeve

    for around the house: a silicone case

    for business meetings: a leather case

    I think for business meetings, the best case is the one made by Griffin. Very elegant looking.

    I know someone who's selling switcheasy. What's your email add and I'll tell him to email you. Better yet, give me your cell# so I'll give it to him. I'm not sure kasi if he wants to give his # without permission.

    Ano kaya mangyari if mahulog iPad in silicone case or enclosed in the belkin grip view. Ma protect kaya screen since part of the back cover enclose the front edge too kaya no contact naman between screen and concrete in case mahulog

    If you will use switch easy on the back, no need to use invisible shield for the back, Hindi ba redundant na yup, the belkin grip vue is so tight the back can't be scratched anymore

    thanks iRalph!

    my experience with "hardcases" - i had a belkin polycarbonate case for my first gen iphone (metal back) i noticed that dust can get trapped inside and from micro scratches. i wanna prevent this with invisishield.

    @dr. manhattan, I'm thinking of going a similar route which is put the invisibleshield full body. Why only the back though? Would the capdase screen protector be better for the front?

    Also, does anyone know if I should be worried about liquid damage if I have an InvisibleShield or a Wrapsol installed?

    liquid damage is not an issue. unless the one applying it would be too gun hoe. just avoid the dock port. the invisishield has a rubbery consistency. i dont want that kind of texture for my touch screen. i want my habds to glide, thats why i think the matte screen protectors are better.

    I was able to buy a jelly case in greenhills for only P330. Other stalls were selling it for P700-800 but I found one stall that was selling Jelly / silicone cases for P350 and hard cases for P400. I just made tawad and hey gave me the jelly case for P330.

    It fits well, there is no play at all. its glossy on the outside and textured on the inside giving it a frosted look. There are cut outs for the speakers, hold switch, dock connector and headphones. Sleep and volume buttons are covered but have raised indentations. No opening for the sim tray.

    It was stall no XC10.
