Will it be compatible with an old iPad?

My instinct is no it will not - get the impression it also needs magnets in the iPad. Happy to be proven wrong.

No. There are no magnets in the original iPad, plus it's designed to fit the new curved edge of iPad 2.

No it will not.

Usually I'll be pissed if Apple makes a cool accessory that's only compatible with their latest products, but in this case, it won't work because magnets and aluminum don't stick together. The iPad 2 has its own magnets inside.
