Just received the gel case for my zoom yesterday and its crap.
Its so thin that when I sit it down on my counter I still worry its getting jarred to much. The only thing it offers is to keep the back of my xoom from getting scratches.
OK. I got mine from verizon yesterday. And while I don't think it is junk it is not ideal at all. But I figure it will at least protect my Zoom from bumps not much more. But I hated the folio case it was marking up my Xoom and I wanted at least some sort of protection on it. Now them wanting $30 flippin bucks for a piece of rubber is ridiculous... but there is not a lot out there right now.
I got the motorola gel case and its not bad. I figure it will protect the back. the only problem I have had is the headphone Jack won't fit all the way with the case on. I have to pull it back to plug it in.
What other case do you carry your Xoom in? I found an ipad case with handles (Targus) it fits fits the xoom and has 3 pockets. Got it at best buy.
I actually got an after market gel case and happen to love it. Doesn't add too much but just enough to make it feel a little more solid. I like how the Xoom remains totally usable. I have the portfolio case as well and think it's great for protection but I don't like how it flops around when really using the Xoom and portrait mode is a bummer.
I like the gel case because I can easily use the dock, I can use ,a more sturdy than the portfolio case, tablet stand and I can easily lay it on it's back without a problem or without thinking about it. Also, I have the keyboard and the get case lets me prop it up anywhere because it's kind of sticky and that's been working out pretty good so far, especially at work.
I just picked up mine. It seems like it is going to get the job done done as far as protecting the back from scratches. I really like that the device + the gel case fits into the dock. I plan on doing a nice low profile mount for my car and can't wait to see how it will turn out.
