    Thanks Lunch. I like this cover but hate spending $22.50 for it (shipping is $7.50). Wish it was offered with free super saver shipping.

    I'll do a little more looking but will probably end up getting it.

    It's STILL not here [Navitech case]. I think someone said it ships from the UK, so that may 'splain the delay.

    Oh.. :( That makes me sad because it looks like something I want so very much. Your combo is pretty damn perfect to me, and I wish I had it. :(

    Looks like the same soft/rubbery silicone case that Verizon sells for $30. You can probably find it elsewhere, but that's up to you.

    Well, that's mainly what I want to know if it is a hard shell with that soft rubber coating or a silicone/gel case. I absolutely loathe those cases on phones. I feel like they make them feel extremely cheap and just unprotected.

    Personally, I gave in and picked one up from Verizon. My wife gets a corporate discount, which brought to $24 something after tax. Plus, I have 30 days to return it.

    As far as the style, I too LOATH this style on a cell phone. It makes it terribly difficult to get out of my pocket. But on the Zoom, its not so bad. In fact, it provides a bit of traction. Not sure if ill return it and get one of the more rigid ones. Hard to say because I have a Folio case coming in that will likely negate the need.

    I agree, I cannot stand it on a cell phone either, however the traction is a big plus for me, esp when standing in my case.

    THIS. I want this. It's like they read my mind- I've been saying I wanted a portfolio leather case, but I can't stand the ones where the cover is attached and I have to hold it. Also been frustrated with my gel case attracting cat hair lol. That's perfect- nice slim leather case to hold, it inserts right in the portfolio case, and acts as a stand! Too bad I have to wait til the 11th. *pout*

    I didn't notice when I ordered this that it was coming from the UK. I ordered it on 3/22, got a notice the same day that it was shipped. That said it would arrive 3/28-3/31. Now it's 4/6. Hope I get it soon....I've just been keeping the Xoom in it's box!

    So I just received the Waterfield wallet that I ordered a few days ago. Their customer service was great! Responses to my questions were fast and they worked to help me with a custom request. I wanted a handle instead of a shoulder strap and they happened to have something in stock. They took a pic of it on the wallet and sent it to me to see if it was what I wanted. That's service!!

    I got the wallet today and here are some pics. The keyboard is a tight fit (lengthwise) but fits in the separate pocket (made for the keyboard) nice and snuggly. I can then fit the Xoom in my portfolio case into the separate "Ipad" pocket and it fits perfectly. I'm sure you could fit it into the pocket with a leather case on it also, but I don't expect to get one so it's not a huge deal to me. It would be a tight fit. But the other option is to simply put the Xoom in the middle and zip it up.

    This is a great option for my Xoom, keyboard and there's also a large pocket to fit in cables, a phone or other things you want to pack in there. Obviously, the thicker the accessories you pack, the more bulk you'll add. But I'm extremely happy with the quality and it's exactly what I was looking for to carry my Xoom with keyboard around. It's slim enough so that if I wanted to throw it into another bag, it could easily fit.

    Check out the pics below:

    Anyone receive the navitech yet?

    That's my favorite looking of all the cases so far. Zoogue looks good, but I'm not a huge fan of velcro. Would love to hear a review of the navitech and see a bunch of pictures.

    Not yet. Hate to say it, but I'm beginning to get a little worried. Seems perfectly legit, but the wait time is starting be a bit unsettling.

    Well, the Navitech delivery estimate is 4/7 - 4/15, so they are not overdue as yet. And they did send a shipping notice a day after ordering. UK post to the US is probably via The Titanic.

    Edit 4-18. Titanic must've gone down. Still no delivery.

    I just sent the vendor a "where's my stuff?" email.
