    I didn't like the Scratcher- er, Portfolio case at all, but didn't want to have my Xoom naked, so I bought the gel case instead.

    I figured I could do better than $30, so I checked on-line and ordered this one instead for $7 (+3 USPS shipping).

    I got it today, and it's identical to the stock gel case. Save yourselves $20+tax, folks!

    Interesting. I thought maybe they used a cheaper silicon to cut cost. Makes you wonder how much Verizon overcharged for theirs.

    I got the bright pink Gizmodorks one on Amazon. :) Fits very nicely, and great price!

    Uh, yeah- that's how I was able to make the comparison :) The ONLY difference is the official Moto one has their "M" logo on the back. Other than that, EXACTLY the same- same gauge of rubber, same fit, same static-electricity issues, everything. Took my Moto one back to the VZ store the next day.
