Question Yoobao Leather Case for Galaxy Tab

Does anyone know where this type of case can be purchased in the UK?

I had one on my iPad and it was an absolutely stunning case so it would be nice to get one for my Galaxy Tab.

Not seen anyone selling these in the UK.
To be frank, I don't like these type of cases which to hold the Tab in place you have to slide it in.
I have the Executive case and not only is it a pain getting the Tab in and out of the case but the leather around the edges of the screen get in the way. I'm always catching my fingers on the leather and it spoils the actions when swiping.

I much prefer the Noreve case which has a 'clip' method to hold the Tab in place.
Not only is it much much quicker to get the Tab in and out of but it does not restrict the Tab's screen.
It is sold in the UK by MobileFun here.
However, if you go to Noreve's web site you can customize the case and get it in many different colours and leather types here.
Noreve ship to the UK and are very good with email requests.
I have bought quite a few customized cases from them in the past and love their designs and excellence.

Found Yoobao now available for Galaxy Tab on eBay and by Googling - bought one in Brown Tan - its stunning.

re Beards advice above - sorry but tried Noreve and in no way do they compare to Yoobao for quality, value for money or security of the device (corner clips on mine became loose and eventually lead to device slipping out).
Also the price for Noreve at Mobilefun is way, way too high.

Each to their own ziffos.
I personally do not like the cases where you have to slide the Tab (or any other phone) into the case. It either gets in the way when you are swiping across the screen or hard to insert/take out from the case.
Also the Yoobao cases don't look too safe on the corners.

As you say Beards "each to their own" and I see your point about the corners but I would much rather the corners be "uncovered" rather than the Tab slipping away totally from its case and onto the floor - no protection at all then eh?

And as for getting in and out - well I bet I can get mine out as quick as you can yours
