    The pictures on that page are not of the Acer A500. It looks like a Xoom or GT 10.1

    I'm guessing since it's not available yet, they don't have pictures for it.

    The image on the screen is from an Acer, note the Clear.fi icon? The hardware doesn't look right though.

    The hardware definately not an A500. Note that there is no USB on the side and the corners are rounded.

    I just picked up the Targus Truss Leather Case from Best Buy. The case is pretty solid. It is pretty heavy, but that is what you get with leather. Over all it is a good case, the only thing is the head phone plugin gets semi covered by the case and the band used to keep the case closed gets in the way of the camera, so you will have to move it out of the way. Otherwise it is pretty nice.

    Targus - Truss Leather Case/Stand for Acer ICONIA TAB A500 10.1" - Black/Gray - THZ07002US

    That is one NICE case and all my local Best Buys have it in stock.

    The one the OP posted had it's release date moved up from July 11th to June 30th. I've been waiting on this one to come out due to the cost and it looks great but now that I've seen the one at Bust Buy I might end up buying it as I can't stand the POS Acer brand one any longer.

    A week ago I sent the rooCase seller an email asking about openings for all the ports and access slots and have never received a response. I also started a discussion on the product page ... no dice there either.

    I bought and received the Navitech case. Though there's no opening for the SD card slot, I'm happy with it. If I hadn't bought the Navitech already I'd be all over that one at Best Buy!

    Bean, thanks for the tip on the case, just picked one up, typical targus quality.

    I resolved the closure strap obstructing the camera by not flipping it all the way over, it just rests on top of the device instead.
