    Hmm.. This case is awesome looking. I'm not sure which case I like/what I prefer. I'm thinking about the rooCASE here: Amazon.com: rooCASE Executive Portfolio (Black) Leather Case Cover with Landscape / Portrait View for Motorola XOOM Android Tablet: Electronics which has the stand and case for the device, but it's not as nice a stand.

    Then this has an awesome stand, but it's just not that much of a case otherwise. I guess I can always find a portfolio that fits the device + case and a BT keyboard.

    Thanks for posting the review. I think I will be getting this case because I am extremely dissatisfied with my current leather case.

    Nice review Raffy. I ordered my zoom case based on your ipad2 case review. Glad to know they maintained their high quality!

    This is the case I am currently using: Motorola XOOM Genuine Leather Case - kevikevdottcom

    I don't like it because the Xoom is too loose in it and sometimes it even slips out.

    Yeah, I saw a pic of a xoom in one of those, and it was definitely 'saggy'. I opted to not go with that one, after I saw that. I have a zoogue on order, but it'll be a couple of weeks until I get it. I may just make a ghetto case out of duct tape while I wait, to go with my world's cheapest stand! :)

    Same. I ordered my ZooGue case yesterday and I won't be receiving it until the end of the month at the earliest.

    I got my ZooGue case today. The previous review nailed it. This case is perfect. I am very confident my OEM case will be joining the IPhone living on the toys of misfit island.

    So. I just got this new ZooGoo case in the mail today and I am very happy with it. The Xoom fits very snug in the case with no slipping anywhere. Plus the adjustment ability to adjust this to almost any angle make this very nice for typing and watching a movie. Also its easy to set it up at a nice angle to just browse or read.

    The only minor flaw I have with it is the case bows out a little at the top front around the front facing camera. Its really minor and does not impact it negatively at all beyong the slight visual aspect. Still, very happy with it and would not return it.

    I will update this if I come across any other issues to share.

    Just got my ZooGue case today and I am also pleased with it. Much better fit than the previous case I was using.

    I also have the same minor flaw with the case bowing out at the top front bezel.

    Overall, excellent case and I will be using it for as long as I have my Xoom.

    zoogue here!
    glade to see everyone is enjoying there case. We are aware of the issue with the top lip of our case bowing up and are currently working with our factory to solve this issue. The solution is a simple one. The leather just needs to a minor break in. it should solve the problem with time, however you can accelerate it by taking out the xoom and pinching down on the fold at the top part of the lip. It has been very effective so far.

    If you have any question or comments don't hesitate to post or send me a private message.

    Got my case today, love it, but like others have that small issue with the lip at the top. Not the end of the world, glad I can carry it in my bag now without worry of destroying it.

    So - here is how minor the flaw is: taking the xoom out to play with the case is more effort than it would be worth. It really does not bother me enough.

    But thanks for tip though!

    Just unboxed mine. Poor fit and bad quality.

    Corners not so form fitting, so power button get recessed by like 1/2" and is difficult to access. Velcro on top closure also came unstitched and unglued after one use.

    Going to return the case and go back to my silicone skin.

    Pics online to demonstrate: Picasa Web Albums - Mike Krupit - Xoom ZooGue case.

    Does anyone know if I have to take my Xoom out of my Zoogue case when going through security at the airport?

    Just flew with mine in my NaviTech case. Not the same case, but for all practical purposes, looks very similar (leather folio-case). Can't imagine you'll encounter any problems.

    But then again, I DON'T work for TSA.

    I don't know why they would need to do that - I would be curious if they ever do that and why.

    But I am curious why this would be a big deal?
