Physical Stores/ Market in Mumbai/ Bombay Prefer Near Andheri for iPad Cover/ Case?


Physical Stores/ Market in Mumbai/ Bombay prefer near Andheri for iPad Cover/ Case?

Currently I just got a 2nd hand Original iPad for trial purposes. I am assuming that it will end up coming handy in my usage and within few months I will be going for the New iPad 3.

So, "cheap" covers that are for original iPad and/ or iPad 3 covers that can manage the original iPad also are what I am looking for.

I can buy Cases/ Covers from Amazon/ Newegg / DX (Deal Extreme)/ Ebay.com/ Ebay.in etc. etc.

But, until I find which is the best cover out of that entire catalog, I'd like to know where I can buy a decent TEMPORARY cover/ case for the iPad.

I'd prefer a PHYSICAL LOCATION close by in Bombay, preferably in/near/ around Andheri Area.

I want some variety and LOW pricing, that is available close by.

I am familiar with Alfa and will be going there in person as its not far.

I am thinking Lamington Rd but its a bit far and wondering if its worth going that far.

If not, I will end up doing the online purchase and wait thing.

Again, please suggest LOCAL/ Physical Locations / Shops.

Thanks.

I don't think any of the cases that fit the original iPad would also fit the iPad 3.

You have to get a smart cover design case with the iPad 3. Front smart cover and back protection which is compatible with the smart cover, is a great combination.

You have to get a smart cover design case with the iPad 3. Front smart cover and back protection which is compatible with the smart cover, is a great combination.
Also, that iPad 2 & iPad 3 ..CAN BENEFIT from the Smart Cover 'magnetic automation'. You don't have to get a Smart Cover design for iPad 3, but a smart cover helps go on & off faster without needing to use the buttons.

I know that the size of the iPad 3 is slightly thicker.

Then again, there are several covers/ cases which are not made to FIT LIKE A GLOVE.

If some of those File Folder type (Stitched/) of cases (not casted/ Moulded to Size Plastic/ TPU/ Gel) can ACCOMODATE an ipad 3 I am sure an iPad 1 will fit in. Maybe, a little loose and maybe with a little padding behind it.


The Smart Cover may not do any magic for the iPad 1 but it will cover it? I guess.. ? Unless I am missing something here. Do enlighten me please?
And then it can be used when I get the iPad 3.

OR

I get a plain cover that can remain with the iPad 1 that I give to my parents.

Smart Cover won't attach onto the iPad 1 as it has no magnets.

Shape is wrong for the smart cover to work as well.

Well, there is a hack for that. Also, magnets are needed for Smart Cover, not if its a Folio type cover, I think.
