    I like the looks of the Capdase Folio Dot, but it's hard to tell how practical it is. I don't like that the tablet is upside down in typing mode. But it's good for charging in that mode I guess.

After an evening and a morning more with it, I *really* like how thin it is and how the whole tablet feels in my hand with it on. And I like that the cover hinges on the top, when in Portrait mode, instead of the bottom like the Exact case (and all the other cases I've seen).

    I have now confirmed that it does fit in my charging dock with the Samsung cover on. Sweet!





    I'll post a separate thread about the dock, with more pics.
    I'm still totally digging my Samsung Notebook Cover, which I got here for $33, with shipping.

    ShopBLT.com: Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1in Book Cover Gray

    I really like that I can charge it with the cover on, open or closed.

    And, though it doesn't stand reliably on my glass desktop, it has done just fine on several different airplane tray tables now, for watching an inflight movie.

    I also like that I can plug my headphones in with the cover closed and then open and close the cover without removing the headphone plug. It just slips through the cutout that's provided for that purpose.

    Also, it has some kind of magnets build into the cover that hold it closed, they hold it open, and, I learned, there are magnets in the middle of the back so you can fold the cover around and position the flap in the middle of the back to prop the tablet up at a a low angle, versus being almost vertical. In other words, you can use the cover to prop it up in just off vertical or just above horizontal - just like most other covers. Except this one does it purely with magnets, so it does not have the bulk of those other covers that use flaps and/or notches.

    I LOVE how thin and light my tablet is with this cover on.

    Stuart, How do you like the typing position/angle with your Notebook Cover? How secure is it when typing? Does it bounce at all? I'm looking for a case that is comfortable and at a low enough angle for typing. . All of those leather type cases with the hook fastener don't look like they are angled low enough for typing. Thanks

    Stuart, it looks like you've found the perfect cover for you. Please let us know if you still love it after a few months of breaking it in.

    You'll like this style cover. It has a magnetic latch flap and sits flat or just slightly angled.



    These are really slim and light too.

    Well, I'm sitting here at Taco Bell enjoying some of the greatest food invention of the 21st Century (the Dorito Taco) and typing my response to you on my Note. I think the typing angle is just fine, and it's not bouncing at all. Seems very solid. I've had the case for a couple of months now, but I don't usually type this way. Usually, when I'm typing, I'm holding my Note and thumb-typing.

    Hope that helps.

    I chose not to get that cover for 2 reasons. One, I don't like that flap. It seems like it would add bulk and/or be in the way when I'm holding the tablet with the cover folded around to the back. Certainly, more so than the other Samsung cover (the one I have). And two, I REALLY prefer having the hinge on the top instead of the bottom. The hinge on the top is way nicer when the tablet is in any kind of holder.

    What is the best rotating cover that can be set in portrait and landscape, plus set on a variety of angles for viewing? Also, do any of the rotating covers have a pen holder?

    Yes! Preferably with keyboard too. That case looks to be quality made in the pictures and very thin, but I don't see any angle set stops on that thin inside cover to hold it in place at different angles. May not be needed (?).

    CoreRWH - After I read futher I see you ordered one. Please let us know how well it holds its' angle settings when you get it. Thx.

    Simplifly, it doesn't have any grooved angle set stops in the thin inside cover but there are velcro grips that help keep it in place. At least that is what I've read and seen in the pictures. I should be getting it the first part of Jan and will give a first impression review.

    Smooches -

    Now that you've had this case for about 3 months, how do you like it? Any issues or concerns?

    I'm looking at the red racing stripe and black Poetic Durabook model for the SGN 10.1. Very reasonably priced on eBay. They appear to have a pen stylus loop on one side, plus landscape, portrait and encased tablet only mode. Looks very versatile.

    Yes. I would like that one, but where do I buy it? I really don't want to buy from Ebay anymore. I have received the wrong case TWICE from two different overseas vendors, where the flap does not cover the camera and the cases isreversed in design. Their product photos do not represent the cases correctly.

    Hmmm... Never had that problem on eBay myself, but have received the complete wrong product and/or wrong version/model on Amazon several times. So much so that I avoid Amazon as much as I can (not really an issue because they are not usually price competetive anyway). Sorry to hear you've had some negative experiences as well.

    It is available on eBay from the vendor I listed and others. Don't know of any non-eBay sources currently. Sorry.

    The tablet can be installed with the hinge at the top or bottom, but there is only a cutout for the stylus when you install it with the hinge at the bottom. It is very compact and thin. The one negative is that it doesn't really prop up the tablet at much of an angle when folded open. You can put the flap straight down with the edge on the surface it's on and get about 2.5" of height at the top. All and all it's a very nice cover for my needs of protecting the tablet and screen while stored in my zippered At-A-Glance planner.
    Simplifly, Did you sell your case already after only one week? The below link is your ad. I can tell by the personal photo. Did it work OK for you? What was wrong with it?

    Actually I sold my OEM Samsung case without ever using it, because even before it arrived I knew I would not be happy without a keyboard for home use from playing with my new SGN 10.1. That OEM Samsung was GREAT for what it is, a very slim and light weight protective case; exactly what you'd expect from Samsung. What I personally didn't like was the lack of viewing positions, so I just flipped it new. I ordered a Samsung Hong Kong OEM Keyboard Dock, but it turned out they were out of stock, so I got a refund on that unsuccessful transaction. Then I began my never ending search for a BT Keyboard Case or rotating portrait/landscape case...

    I just returned from Best-waste of time-Buy in hopes of handling a Kensington BT Keyboard Case just to get a feel for the keyboard and quality of the product. I know BB doesn't have the Android Keyfolio Expert which is what I'm thinking about getting next, but they do carry the other iPad products on their website and the universal cases. They didn't have a single Kensington product in the store!

    I see the Android Keyfolio Expert is sold out almost everywhere at the low price point. My frustration level is growing and growing to the point I think I'm going to P-O-P! I mean, &*%#$! Why can't Samsung get their act together and get some OEM Keyboard Docks out there? That is what I will eventual get and I'm losing faith. The Expert gives me naked to naked swapping from the dock to the mobile keyboard case, so that is a big plus. On the otherhand, the Poetic Dura Book Leather Case is really nice with its' mutliple positioning, pullout covered tablet only option and slide-in casing that doesn't have corners to deal with. I'm torn between the Kensington Folio Expert Keyboard Case and the Poetic Dura Book Leather Case to compliment the OEM Samsung Keyboard Dock if it ever gets to the USA or Hong Kong. Sigh...

    Now I'm waiting for the funds from the ebay auction sale to make my next purchase, because ebay has implemented a new "hold" policy on funds for sales on some items and new users until the product is delivered. So more frustration! Double sigh...

    What should be a simple purchase is wearing me out.

    On a side note, I did get to play with the Targus Versavu Rotating BT Keyboard Case for iPad. That is very nice, but nothing for SGN 10.1 coming from them after talking with Targus the other day. Triple sigh...

    All I can do is laugh at this point. Trying to get into the Xmas spirit to cheer myself up, but not having any luck.

    Hiya's, first post here, but wanted to chime in on the OEM book case. I was ready to return it today but thanks to this forum I found the magnets and now I'm sold (you'd think a simple diagram indicating their existence wouldn't be out of the question). Typing angle is very solid and you just cannot get a lower profile case with better feel. I'm coming from iPad and the whirlwind of cases over there, and this one beats every one I ever had. Thanks for the info guys!

    Ordered and received the POETIC DURABOOK case cover. Very happy with it. I briefly commented on its' similarity to the iBLASON case cover in this thread:

    I got the book cover a week Jr so ago and like it, but what I don't like is that when the cover is folded back the camera is pretty useless. I am also worried that with time the cover portion where it hinges will weakin and crack. Other than that I love it.
