Fleurya, yeah I am still not too terribly psych'd about the corners. But overall the cover looks phenomenal. I am pretty sure if I gave it more time I'd be able to install the corner pieces properly... I might give them another shot later and update here.

I still don't think it is anything that the StealthArmor company could've done better. It is just the limitation of the hardware's shape.

MacLicious, One of the added benefits of the StealthArmor that I am noticing is the nice texture on the back of the iPad 2. It isn't as slippery as before which makes it much more comfy to hold for readying. I think you will have the same advantage with the GelaSkins though. Please post pictures when you get them installed.

Cheers,

Oh that sounds great - a mini review would be appreciated too as mine jsut shipped but will take 3 weeks to get here. So comments on how they fit the iPad2 and how easy they are to install as well as any other comments would be great.

since i was already posting in this thread, I thought I;d say both my Gelaskins arrived here in Blighty.

Not sure which one to go with first. Plenty of time to make my mind up though . no stock in John Lewis of iPad2 which is where I need to get mine from (got a lot of vouchers).

Sorry, busy with work. I received my Gelaskin 2 days after I ordered it. However, I live close to Toronto. Anyway... I found it really difficult to put on straight and kept having to lift it up and realign it. This was just before I had all the similar difficulty getting my SGP screen protector on (and not without lots of bubbles, dust and plenty of frustration). SGP replacement is on the way and will be up for sale on Kijiji as soon as it arrives.

Anyways, I will post pics of the gelaskin. I am not happy with the end result, but if you don't look too close it is ok at a glance. However, I will probably not buy one again due to this. I have an Invisible Shield on the way. I have installed tons of these with little difficulty and always with good results. And it might be of note that the invisible shield has a better grip feel than the Gelaskins. This is not to say the Gelaskins don't give you a bit of a grip feel, but the Invisible Shield is much grippier and far less likely to slip from your hands.

Once again, personal preference.

I am glad I stuck with my StealthArmor. It wasn't that har to put on, plus when I had to remove it to adjust it it went back on still looking pristine.

Hope you have better luck with the Invisible Shield.

Cheers,

It looks like it works great with the Smart Cover Video!

Yet Another Video!

And unlike some of the other skins I've seen, it comes with separate corner pieces and covers all the around the iPad.

I'll post back when I get it on hand and install it... I am actually very psyched about it

Cheers,

The back protection is as close to perfect that I have seen. I don't like anything over the display however... IMO it degrades the performance and Gorilla Glass is super tough. The film degrades the clarity and the touch sensitivity. Yes they work, sorta ... why not delay in putting on the display cover and see how it goes. You can always add it if it is to become a kids toy as well. Your choice, just my opinion.

Yes it works with the Smart Cover, but the film does degrade the holding force of the magnets as any spacer would.

I actually didn't install the Screen Protector at all. I agree with you there.

The StealthArmor didn't really affect the Magnetic strength of the Smart Cover. It still works like a charm!

Maclicious - did you get a carbon fiber one from Gelaskin?

I REALLY like the carbon fiber design but I cannot locate one on the gelaskin website - I too am in Canada so StealthArmor is not in the cards
