    Our local Staples got their deliveries in today, but they have to wait until next week to sell them. They are selling the protective case now though.

    I notice the Best Buy circular for this week says "Exlcusive" for the Iconia, so maybe that is why Staples has to wait until next week.

    That's very good to hear. Hopefully that means they will have that case/stand combo for the Iconia in store around that time as well!

    They have the cases in stock now and are selling them. Three in stock at my local store. $40 seems high though....

    I got my A500 from Best Buy. I ordered the case from Staples online because my local Staples does not have them in stock. I think the price is kind of high too, but there are not many alternatives except for generic cases.

    $30 would have been better, since at $40, the build does not seem worth it.

    This would be a good case study for pricing elasticity.

    Exactly which case are you talking about? I cannot seem to find any specific for the Acer Tab on the Stpales site.


    doh!....I found it on the Staples site.

    Yeah but I think most cases for tablets are expensive now. I have the smart cover for my Ipad 2nd gen and offers no protection at all for the same price as the Acer case which I intend to pick up today.

    Just so you guys know the case that staples is selling is now on the Acer site and here's the kicker its only $19.78.

    Type in "Iconia" and it shows up.

    I bought one at a local Staples today and posted a review in the Accessories thread.

    It is certainly better than nothing, but is only worth $20. Staples is marking up far too high, since Staples would buy from the same supplier Acer is using for branding (better volume deal).
