    Default Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Case

    Anyone had any luck finding a case for this lovely device? Many BB in my area (SoCal) only have cases for the new 10 and 7 inch devices, yet nothing for the 8 inch, which is sold out at many locations near me!

    Have you considered ordering online?

    Same here (Western New York). I even went as far too order the book cover from Samsung's website but 10 minutes after I ordered it, I got an email stating that it was in back order.

    Look on Ebay! You can see the many different cases available for Your Tablet! The prices will be about 1/4 of the local stores. I purchased my tab 3 7" yesterday and the salesman showed me some $49 and up cases. I purchased one on Ebay for less than $10 and that included shipping

    Even if you do not purchase online you can see what is available and find out what is a fair price!

    I don't know, I'm wondering if Samsung never actually released the case for sale but forgot to take it off their website

    Did Samsung give you any time frame as to when the cases would be available?

    Be careful of online 'leather' covers. i ordered one for a Tab 2 10.1. It was poor fitting and heavy. Question: Anyone know how and where to download a Tab 3 8.0 user manual?

    Yeah I just ordered one but I'm leery of the result. Given that there's nothing in stores yet its pretty much the only way I could go at this point.

    From the Samsung website product page for the tablet, click the "Support" tab and there is a link for downloading the manual. Here a link to the the page that contains the link to the manual download:

    I ended up with the one from Samsung on backorder too. Ordered this one from Amazon as a cheap interim solution.Amazon.com : MoKo Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Case - Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Case Slim Folding Cover Case for Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Inch SM-T3100 / SM-T3110 Android Tablet, INDIGO (with Smart Auto Wake / Sleep Feature) : Computers & Accessories

    Like it enough for under $10 I cancelled the $50 samsung case. Bit bulkier, but that doesn't bother me.

    That case on Amazon is a great deal and has fairly good reviews considering the cost.

    This is pretty much the case I'm getting. Hopefully its here later this week. I'll post an update when I get it.
    Edit: Here's what I ordered. Looks like it will be another week or so. I didn't really love the color scheme but the price is right.

    So I just got this case. Seems pretty good.

    Pros:
    + lid does have magnets (so it turns on when you open the lid)
    + Hole in the back for the camera
    + detachable keyboard for when you don't want it

    Cons:
    - The part that holds the tablet along the spine of the case is a little wider than the bezel (not surprising with the small bezel) so it cuts off the screen a bit
    - It is pretty heavy even without the keyboard
    - The keyboard is very squished, and the spacebar is too small as a result. I keep pressing the keys beside it instead.

    I have the same case for my Note 8.0. It's a good case and I like the keyboard. I have a ZAGG on my Note though and the black dye did bleed a bit on the ZAGG and doesn't seem to want to come off. I'm a little bummed about that.

    Just got my official Samsung Tab 3 8.0 cover (blue) and it is a beauty. Thin , lightweight, fits like a glove and seems to offer good protection.

    All of the ports, buttons etc including the microphone are easily accessible. The cover folds at two viewing angles and they have added rubber feet allong the right side to provide better grip when using the cover as a stand.

    The magnet in the cover turns the screen on and off when you open and close the cover.

    This is an expensive, but really high quality cover. I got mine on Amazon from Beach Camera and saved ten bucks off the Samsung online price.
