I purchased a platinum case at BB for 35 bux, it has a cheap kickstand built in that serves its purpose but as you already know you can't charge it while in kickstand mode. I also bought a ZAGG screen protector. DO NOT BUY the smudge proof model. I have always like the way this one feels compared to the standard ZAGG but on the EVO3d it looks horrible. I am going to have to remove it and put a standard one on it. Let me know of any of your real world experiances w/ aftermarket products.
