“We’ve been seeing supposed iPad 2 cases for about a month now, all of them with the same telltale cutouts: a camera hole in the back, a camera hole in the front, and a big ol’ speaker hole,” Paul Miller reports for Engadget. “Today’s find beats them all, however: we just found a [Dexim] case with a machined aluminum iPad 2 mockup inside.”

Miller writes, “There’s certainly a consistent iPad 2 make that these Chinese manufacturers seem to be designing against, and while there’s always the off chance that their info is wrong, it seems odd they’d go so far as to actually make the cases if they were unsure about their sources.”
