    Don't really like cases like this, nothing ever seams to fit right. Also remember the power button may be hard to access on some cases. Have this problem with a car mount that I use. I now use WidgetLocker which enables the volume as a power button.

    I'm getting this one. I'm *hoping* that it'll fit the keyboard too, though it'll have to be slightly diagonal I think. If the keyboard doesn't fit at all, I'll return that one and get the same thing but the 10.1" netbook size.

    The keyboard is 12 inches by 5 inches so keep this in mind. I'm going with a 14 inch case logic which is like the one vzw sells.

    Going on a trip and will be taking Xoom in a carry on. Wanted something hard, but as it will be residing inside another bag, settled on something more form fitting. Checked out Target, Best Buy and Staples and every one I tried (10+) was way too loose. This is the one I choose, for its snug fit. Even has hidden retractable handles for later solo use:

    It was at the Staples btw.

    I was just in Best Buy trying to solve this problem of a snug fit sleeve. I was trying to keep minimalistic and I ended up with some New York Jets one for net books that actually fits amazingly. So if you see the sports or college ones at your local Best Buy, you might want to check it out. My store had it by the registers. Only $25

    Yeah that one is like .5" shorter than the keyboard so I *think8 it's fit if it's just slightly diagonal. there's a bigger size, too. I haven't actually got the keyboard yet, waiting til payday. ;)

    i have a bag to carry the xoom/keyboard and stylii in now. its one of those bags posted above.

    the incase is designed for 10.2 inch notebooks. the incase is a near custom fit. does not flop around and has room up top so the ziper does not mess up the top. i have the xoom in the silicon case and it stil has room around the sides.

    Does the Incase 10.2 carry both the Xoom and KB at the same time?
  12. marctronixx


    no sir! its just big enough for the xoom. youd have to get a bag.

    this is what i picked up:

    it fits the keyboard, stylii, charger, evo in the ballistic case, my first gen ipod touch (hush it!) usb cord, cleaning cloth PLUS it includes a cig and house charger. those items dont charge the xoom but they can be used as spares for your handset.

    the xoom also fits in the incase and both will fit in the padded slot in this bag. very worthwhile purchase...

    I just picked this one up at Best Buy...it was on sale for $24.99.:)
    The Xoom with the Motorola silicone case fits in it nice and snug.
    I really liked that it had handles and a small pocket.

    finally got this case in. it looks and fits just as you see it here. the leather is nice and smells like leather.. :D

    definitely a worthwhile purchase...

    further, when the xoom is propped up, it allows for you to be able to pop in the power plug. it raises the bottom of the tablet up whilst in the case.

    initial comments:

    the magnetic parts on the portfolio are not of much use, at least on the model i have. there is no snap with it like you normally see. i would appreciate others' comments on this as they receive. i could have a defective version. it closes like a book just fine and it does not flap around.

    be sure and loosen the flap so it sits nicely when the xoom is in "display" mode.. :)

    not much to it. no directions came with it and they ship usps priority.

    thanks for the pictures. i am mainly looking for a something to carry the xoom in not necessarly use the xoom while in it and that case looked the best out of what is available (the moto portfolio case is horrible) in a portfolio style.

    you said it closes like a book, does that mean no way to keep it closed?

    don't suppose we could get you to take a pic of it all closed up? :)

    It does say that it has a magnetic closure. Can you confirm this?

    so it does have two magnets up top at the ends. the attraction thru the leather is preventing the magnets from "snapping shut" like you see on coventional portfolios.

    i corrected myself. and if you go to the site i think they have a photo of it closed.

    thanks for the update, yea the picture on the site with it closed doesn't have a xoom in it though (wondering how thick the whole thing when carrying it) but mine is still scheduled to be delivered today so i will find out tonight, YEA!

    funny you mention this. I noticed that smell too. I love it... it smells just like when I get a new pair of leather Timberlands. :D
