    Here is the condition of my Portenzo Alano case. I throw it in my pack back and after 6 weeks it looks like it's taking a beating..

    Looks like a nice, well-worn book

    Did the place smell like awesome? I can only assume it did

    It smelled like old books and rich leather. I can't imagine why.

    That's an awesome anti-theft device - disguising your tablet as a book.
    This guy was robbed and the thief left his tablets alone.

    I just noticed that those of you with embossing got "Nexus 7". I'm just curious why not your name or initials?

    Didn't really want my name on the cover in the event I wanted to resell. Not sure how much I can get for the portenzo case now since I dropped it and the wood Splintered on the corner. I wonder if Portenzo can put in a new wood piece.

    Good to hear you are okay.

    Wanted to add; I have been carrying my Nexus with the portenzo Alano cases to family events. And everyone was asking me why I was carrying a bible... Hahaha. I should have gotten the embossing in red.

    Contact them and see what they say. They seem like a very good company. I would be interested in what you find out.

    Are you referring to the video I posted? That's not me.

    Mine is just going to be a BookCase. Judging by their production schedule, I'll probably receive it about the week of Thanksgiving. I hope to get it before Thanksgiving, then I can show it off at my parent's house.


    ... and thank you for the explanation on the embossing.

    With as cool as Portenzo is, they might replace your case. Never hurts to try

    Portenzo links in this thread seem to be broken. Just googled it and got on web site but the only options I see are colors, intellistand, and stylus. Also I see no pics or info on what the difference is between the regular and the intellistand. Just not clear on the web site. Nor have I seen a clear explanation in the thread.
    Someone enlighten me!

    The Intellistand option will allow you to stand the case so that you can view video at different angles, etc...

    What color scheme is that? Is that's sky blue, if so, it looks a lot lighter on their website. Might get that same combo of colors.
    How easy is it to clean and does it get dirty easily?

    The color scheme is "Green Apple" on the outside and "Dark Blue Linen" on the inside. I took the photo outside (obviously), with my Droid Razr, so I'm not sure on the white balance (auto).

    They provide a microfiber cloth with the case. According to the website, a slightly dampened cloth should be all that is needed to clean the case.

    Thanks for the info.
    I was thinking of green but thought maybe the bright color would lose it's appeal and also it won't be as incognito anymore.
    It's screaming look at me! Haha

    I felt the green was close to "Android Green".

    Just ordered the Indiana journal on 11/9 any idea how long it takes to get these things? I've heard anywhere from 10 days to over a month.

    About 10 business days for production and then they have to ship it for you. I guess the total production time also depends on what was in the queue before your order.

    That's an ugly *** case. I would rather have someone steal my tablet then have to walk around with that case.

    I'm wondering how the smart cover function works on this with the Nexus 7. If I have the lock screen set to Face Unlock, will the case open up directly to the Face Unlock screen, thereby allowing me to just look at the device to unlock it before using it?
