    Default Note 10.1 accessories?

    So I picked up my new Note 10.1 16GB at Best Buy yesterday -- it's about time! It sure felt like I was waiting forever for this thing! I do believe it was worth the wait, as I'm impressed thus far. Anyways... I'm coming to the Note from an OG Asus Transformer, and at some point will want a keyboard -- has anyone heard if there's going to be a keyboard dock made especially for the Note? Or will it work just fine with the one currently on the market for the Tab 10.1 or Tab 2? I just wonder if I should snag a BT keyboard now or wait for an official one.

    Has anyone heard an ETA on some of the accessories I've seen that are supposedly coming? (adapters, desktop dock, cases, s-pen holder, etc?).

    I also desperately need a TPU case for this thing -- my fingerprints are all over the back (d'oh!), but I imagine I'll be waiting awhile for one.

    Why can't they release their OEM accessories the same date as their tablet? That's one thing that has always annoyed me about Android. Even the Nexus 7 doesn't have all its OEM accessories out!

    I, too, am very frustrated at the lack of accessories. I searched today and while many cases and keyboards said they were for the Note 10.1 some mentioned iPads in the description and apple specific keys on keyboards. Even Samsung is confused! I went to their site today and under accessories for our model Note you get one page, a few items are just pictured with a model number and I don't know what they are! While the title of the page is Galaxy Note 10.1 in nice big bold letters, there are cases for the 7" Galaxy Tabs on the page. I'd like a case and a keyboard and I'm not sure whether to get integrated, or whether I should get a case and then look for a separate keyboard. What's your opinion of those? Is there any advantage to a usb or bluetooth keyboard or should I wait for Samsung to get around to selling something specific for the 10.1? Also, I had an iPad user tell me I should get a screen protector. Do I need one of those? My Note phone has gorilla glass and works better without a protector so I hadn't even thought of looking for one for the 10.1. Are there any other accessories I should consider? Please let's help each other find the right stuff for our wonderful new Galaxy Note 10.1s.

    Thanks.

    There is a desktop dock charger available on the Samsunb site. They are $34andI purchased 2 of them. They work great but dont come with power adapters. It is the same dock for the Tab 2 10.1.

    Thanks for letting me know about the dock chargers. Does that mean if I see other adapters, like a usb adapter, or a keyboard designed for the Tab 2, that it will work as well? I'd really like a keyboard but feel rather limited to bluetooth because I'm not sure what can really be connected to the Note 10.1. I don't always believe websites when they say something is compatible.

    I am hope that OB comes out with a Defender case for it? I had my GS3 for a month before I got my Defender. Does the Note 10.1 come with a slip case at least?

    No. There's no sleeve of any kind. I'm using a zippered case I had for one of my other tablets for now. I may check out the Belkin case too; another member said it was a pretty decent case. I'd wait for the Samsung official case but have no idea when we'll see it.

    +1 for the Belkin Tri-fold case. I got one yesterday. It could definitely be better - and I will be looking for something better - but it's WAY better than nothing. It's really not bad at all.

    Personally, I strongly prefer a case that my tablet stays in while I'm using it versus a sleeve that only protects it when I'm not using it. I use mine enough that a sleeve would just end up sitting empty except for when I'm traveling.

    There's a usb adapter for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Would it work with the Note 10.1?

    I can tell you the dock does because I have it and use it.
    The case likely will not work since it does not have the opening for the S pen.
    I see no reason the USB cable connector will not work - but I will not pay $19.95 for that little cable. I bought one on Amazon for $2.75 - it should arrive in the next few days.

    I bought the USB adaptor while I was in Best Buy ordering my Deep Gray 32GB Note 10.1. When I get home, I am going to order a case and a 64GB card.

    I went to Best Buy tonight to look at their accessories. Yes, they have the Tab 10.1 keyboard dock and it would work with the Note 10.1 as will other 30 pin connection items. I bought a screen protector and the sales person installed it for 15 dollars. Best 15 dollars I spent tonight. I would never have that patience! I looked at the Belkin black folder type case and right next to it was a bright pink one for the Tab 10.1 so I got it! Yes, you're right, it didn't have an opening for the S pen but it does now..... I modified the rubbery corner. I started with a little drill bit and tried bigger bits but the rubber just tried to wrap around it even though I tried putting wood under it. I got my sharpest scissors and craft knife and just whittled away. I heated up the end of a heavy drill bit to smooth it out. I leave the S pen sticking out a bit but it still activates the menu options and wakes up the screen when I pull it out.

    Still looking for the perfect android bluetooth keyboard. BTW, sales people have no company specific, like Samsung, trouble shooting resources. The sales guy knew about syncing but didn't know how to do it with S notes. He sent me to the Geek Squad counter where they talked among themselves and did a lot of head shaking. One guy tried the lets push any button approach and locked up the S note app so that all it would do is go to a black screen. I finally had to reset the phone by powering down. After it restarted it took longer than normal to start S Note and when I tried to open one of the notes, it said it had to recover something or other and it did recover it completely. Moral of the story is to turn over things to the Geek Squad at your own risk.Two geeks said they didn't know how to sync since they typically didn't work on tablets. When I said searches for information showed many people used sync options to send things to their computers. They shook their heads, I asked if they knew Evernote, Google Docs, Dropbox, one guy said he'd heard of Goggle docs and then more head shaking. sigh I haven't given up though, someone in another thread wrote up some directions for me to try so my quest will continue!

    All of the 30 pin connector accessories work with all tabs, however, stay clear of cases and even the keyboard dock that is made for the original Tab as it is not as wide as the Note. Same for the Tab 2, the Note is slightly wider. I am currently using the desktop dock, USB, SD, HDMI and VGA 30 pin adapters for the Tab line. They all work fine on the Note. I ordered the Motorola Android Bluetooth keyboard with the track stick off of Amazon and it works perfectly. Dont order the third party 30 pin charging cables as most of them dont work. I have tried several only to find that it is best to use the original Samsung USB charger brick as it charges the quickest.

    Samsung will be releasing custom cases and a keyboard dock shortly for those that can wait.

    Thank you! I'm sure you just saved me some money and I'll look for that keyboard.

    I just ordered a 64GB micro SDXC Class 10 card, HDMI adaptor, and travel charger for my Note 10.1. Someone, please stop me before I buy more.

    Well, I ended up picking up the universal desktop dock (the Samsung one) along with the Belkin tri-fold case. I like the case (am considering modifying it to allow removal of the s-pen without having to pop that corner out of the case), and the dock is perfect for a stand in the instances where I need it.

    I'm still on the fence about waiting for the official keyboard dock ... or if I should just snag a keyboard dock that's already on the market. Decisions, decisions. I just wish Samsung had an ETA on that keyboard -- at least then I'd know if I have the patience to wait or not. It's a damn good thing I'm pretty speedy at typing on screen, or else I'd be dying already!

    Why is it so much trouble to release accessories at the same time as a device is launched? Ugh!

    The screen protector I purchased at Best Buy AND had installed, Zagg, is horrible with the S-pen. You really have to put a lot of pressure on it to have a continuous line. I can get a refund for the protector but NOT the 15 dollar installation that I thought was a good buy at the time! BTW, after doing some searches on our screen I couldn't confirm that it's gorilla glass. Last night I spoke to Samsung customer service about syncing and asked him about the surface. He said it's just listed as glass, not gorilla glass. He suggested it have a screen protector. I told him about the drag on the Zagg screen protector with the S pen and he said that Zagg is an approved protector, they'll usually have a list of ones that don't work well for different devices so he wrote up my problem to pass along. He hasn't had any experience with the S pen, the tablet support center haven't seen the Galaxy Note Tablet 10.1 yet! I also asked him to pass along that many of us are frustrated at the lack of accessories and the delay in getting the manual out. I don't know how much good that will do, but it made me feel better.

    I'll be honest with you -- I've sworn off Zaggs on my tablets now. I used to put a Zagg on everything, but I found it interferes with some activities, especially on my tablets. I also think that Zagg has altered its materials since I first started buying them. The last couple I've applied have been more roughly textured and thus cause everything and anything to stick to them. Annoying.

    I don't know about the gorilla glass thing, but I've been using my Note without a screen protector, because I figured a protector might interfere with the pen. I think if I were going to go that route, I'd go for a thin, smoother dry install one -- the bonus here being they tend to be cheaper and easier to install, so if you hate it or it interferes with use, you won't have wasted a ton of $$ in the process.

    I believe there are discussions on screen protectors on the Note specifically -- it's probably time to check those out if you're worried about scratching the glass.

    Do you have it in the case upside down? My Belkin Tri-fold has a hole for the S-pen.
