    One of the reasons I have waited to get my 300 is so far there are no cases. The TF201 cases will work, but they headphone jack and a few other cutouts are off. Just curious what others are buying.

    Thanks

    I'm currently working with BobJ, who's made silicone cases for the Toshiba Thrive, and is currently developing silicone cases for the new iPad iPad2, Transformer Prime and Transformer T300.

    These are very high end, food grade silicone cases, with access to all of the ports.

    The case for the Asus will fit both Transformer Prime and the new T300's.

    He's estimating a release date of end of May, early June.

    I'm working with him, and have a prototype of the Transformer Prime/T300 case.

    If you're looking for a quality silicone case, that will provide excellent protection, this is a great option! Silicone isn't for everyone, but I've really enjoyed it... provides protection and better grip.

    You can go to bobjgear.com to check out what they look like. You can also see the great reviews his Thrive cases have received on Amazon!

    Looks similar to the one I just ordered:

    They all seem to cover the speaker when not in "triangle mode", don't they?

    I purchased the official cover for the eee pad transformer that actually clips into the hardware slots on the bottom of the tablet. It fits like a charm but I had to do some slight filing to ensure a snug fit for the charger while the case is on. Not necessary though. I found the case at office max. I can send a few pics if anybody is interested in seeing the cover.

    Here are some pics of my setup. Despite the 50/50 negative and positive reviews, I have found the case to be exactly what I'd hoped it to be. It keeps the case thin and protects it when not in use. It also folds to allow the tablet to be propped in multiple positions. I also purchased the skinomi carbon fiber skin. The skin is excellent, but the included screen protector is sh**... It has been installed for weeks and there are thousands of microscopic bubbles under the screen that make it impossible to use in good lighting (go with a zagg if you're looking for a good one). Here is a link to the case on amazon (I got mine sitting in the clearance section at Office Max for $15).

    Has nobody tried this case yet?

    http://www.gumdropcases.com/asus-transformer-pad-tf300t.html

    I've been a fan of the otterbox cases for my phones for quite a while, and this tablet will be riding in the the truck with me a good bit...I'm seriously thinking about getting one. Just not sure if its really necessary.

    The poetic hardback has a cutout for the speaker. I might remove stitching for hand strap, it adds bulk.

    Interesting, it uses the dockingholes to hold the sleeve. Is this the exact case you got, cause it does not really state that it's compatible with a TF300.

    Yeah, I bought it in store so I was able to actually take it out and try it. It fits perfectly

    I have this one: caseen SKINNY Genuine Leather Stand Case (DESIGNO Series Purple) for ASUS Transformer Pad TF300 TF300T

    It's a nice one - it can stand the tablet up different ways, there's a stylus holder, and there are holes for all the ports and buttons.
