    Does anyone have any suggestions for a ruggedized case for the Touchpad?

    Worst case, you might be able to find one for the original iPad and use that. The iPad2 is thinner than the TP so probably won't work. :D

    Agreed. I've got both an iPad 1 and a TouchPad. The form factor of both is amazingly similar. Like almost identical. I was able to get a leather case with a bluetooth keyboard that's an iPad 1 products. It works really well with the TouchPad.

    I'd imagine if you found a rugged case for an iPad 1 that has silicone or foam rubber inside the Touchpad would fit nicely.

    I am going to assume that the holes and button indentations don't match up with the iPad.

    I would LOVE to get an OtterBox Defender specifically designed for the HP Touchpad.

    Actually, I think they're pretty close.

    I love Incipio products. I have one on the wife's iPhone and I have one on my NS4G. I just found this:

    http://www.myincipio.com/HP-TouchPad-Cases-Accessories/Incipio-HP-TouchPad-KICKSTAND-Nylon-Case.asp

    It's no Otterbox (which I also have experience with on older phones), but I can vouch for the quality.

    There isn't much to it now, but you might want to follow this thread on XDA. The OP has info on what fits and what doesn't fit so much...

    Hope this helps.

    joker920, colchiro is right - its incredibly close. i am typing this right now on my TP which is inside an iPad leather case with a kickin Bluetooth keyboard . the buttons are so close a match it works great.

    i have both an ipad and a TP and the form factor isnt 100% exact, but its damn close enough.
