    "Yes the entire skin is being redesigned as we speak, so that it is compatible with the keyboard dock. As for the keyboard dock we will be posting the listing on our page in the next 2 weeks. We will offer all forms of skin for the dock so keep your eye out for the listing to apperar. I hope this is helpful and have a great day!"

    Seems good to me!

    Just bought this sleeve off ebay
    [​IMG]eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

    [​IMG]


    Overall the product is nice. Well built, metal zippers and an internal flap to hold the device and protect it from the zipper. External pouch with zipper which is a nice touch for HDMI cable, stylus etc. Neoprene inside and out.

    The product was described as an Asus Transformer Prime sleeve. It is actually more of the iPad form factor as evident because of the extra 1/2 inch in height in landscape position. I'm going over to a friend’s house for the games tomorrow and check it with his iPad 2. The description did say it can accommodate the dock and the tablet but since I don't have a dock (will get one eventually) it may be just enough room for the hinge.

    [​IMG]

    This is a shot of the protective flap. The Prime fits but there is a lot of space between it and the top of this flap. Again I think the dock will take up most of this space by adding the hinge and thickness.
    [​IMG]

    The last shot is the Prime sitting inside the sleeve on top of the internal flap. You can see how much bigger the sleeve is.

    Overall it's an eBay hit or miss special. There are probably a lot of better fitting sleeves out there but for $16 and free shipping (not to mention I received it in two days) it's not a bad sleeve. I just don't think its Prime specific, it's more of a generic sleeve. The most negative thing was a plastic business card holder inside where the screen would be in contact with. I didn't like the way it felt so I cut it out. It came out easily. Made in China so we'll see how it holds up.
    Hope this helps.

    I just got my roo case in the mail today, and I must say that I love it. Its kind of like my dad's iPad case, but actually puts the tablet at a somewhat good angle for typing. I do have to say though, the case smells a little odd when it comes inn lol. But overall it's a good case and feels pretty well made.

    I bought this hard case:

    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    Internal dimensions now that I have it in my hand are:

    Case: 26.8cm x 19.1cm x 3-4cm
    Prime: 26.3cm x 18.1cm x 2cm

    As you can see, it's a pretty close fit in theory. Have to wait 5 days before I get my Prime to confirm it's a good fit.

    I have the Roo case and it's OK. Only drawbacks are the power button is a little difficult to press because the edge of the case gets in the way and as someone else mentioned you can't plug in the charger while it is closed.

    the one you ordered was made for the Original Transformer. Amazon now have one made for the Prime.

    Amazon.com: MoKo(TM) Slim Cover Case with Stand for Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime Android Tablet (TF201 Sleeve) Black: Electronics

    I ordered this one:

    Amazon.com: Poetic(TM) StandBook Stand Leather Case with Angle Adjustable for Asus Eee Pad Prime TF201 Black: Electronics

    Looks to be very similar to the Blurex and Vertek case except for the color of brown vs the Blurex/Vertek blue. Still waiting for it, but a user on Amazon took pictures of the case with shipping. It has a charge port so you can use with the case on. I know some don't. Personally I would have rather had the blue lining but I would much rather have a case period. The Blurex and Vertek have been out of stock for a while and I stumbled on this while looking for those. It's also $20.

    EDIT: Poetic lining is actually a light grey and the Amazon picture looks light brown.

    huh... the item description says that it's for the TF201. but, regardless, it fits my Prime perfectly. and, the case i got is different than the one you link to, at least in design (my case doesn't completely encase/surround the Prime, which i like, because the case doesn't interfere with me using the screen edges, and it has a port for charging when the case is closed). anyway, i really like the one i ended up with.

    I received the case today and the color on Amazon's website looked light brown to me and it's actually a light grey. I'm either suffering from crappy laptop, color blindness or could be in a wacky geek accessory dream!? Anywho, haven't put it through the paces yet (as I haven't even opened my Prime box yet), but it looks and sounds almost dead on with specs and layout of the Blurex and Vertek.

    Also, the felt lining seems a little "hard". I am coming from an Acer Iconia A500 with the Targus (Monster thick) Truss and the lining/foam was much softer to the touch. Seems like this would soften over time, but putting something that "solid" next to that beautiful screen seems a little scary. Any comments on that texture question to the owners of the Blurex or Vertek?

    I got my parents this case for their iPad and it's by far the best quality folio type case I've seen -much better than the Moko, Verteks, Poetic, Blurex, etc. It has a very classy carbon fiber look and a cool hand strap as shown in the video. It also feels a little slimmer than the Poetic case I have for the Prime.

    If you'd be interested in this case, please post in the Facebook thread posted below. If there's a big enough response, they've said they would make one for the Prime.

    https://www.facebook.com/marware/posts/10150415346661829

    FYI, they make them in different colors and a different type of finish too.

    Carbon Fiber, Black, Brown, Red and Pink

    I prefer the carbon fiber look but it's nice to have a variety.

    I've been trying to get a case for my prime since I 1st ordered in on 1/12. I first ordered 2 Vipertek cases (Premium Slim Leather Case Folio & Multi-Angle Leather Folio Case), but never arrived even though the vendor claims they shipped it, they refunded my money. Placed another order for an "Acase - Acase(TM) Leather Case Folio with Multi View Stand for ASUS TF201 Eee Pad Transformer Prime 10.1-Inch 32GB / 64GB : Asus Eee Pad

    Hopefully this will arrive in the next day or two...

    It just arrived. It does everything that I wanted and looks decent. Even though it is not as bulky as some I still wish it were thinner.

    so many choices I can not decide!!
    What I would like

    -speaker area to have a cut out not holes
    -multi angle support (hoping one of the angles makes it easy to type on the screen)
    -switch from portrait to landscape
    -not funny smell
    -protect the sides
    -cant cover the charging port when closed
    -openings for ports power and volume rocker
    -it would be cool if it had a sleeve in the inside
    -protection obviously important ( I am used to using otterboxes on my smartphone, I have got one on my galaxy nexus) I would like to keep this tablet with a thin profile I am looking to just being able to protect it from dings, bumps and being able to keep in my briefcase not worring about it shifting around in there.
    -Going for a nice looking leather finish good quality work in a business environment

    Hope I am not to picky lol
