Anyone got any leads on a keyboard folio / case for the tablet? I think it would be the icing on the cake for me. I'm looking to get the LTE version and replace my qwerty phone which I use 95% of the time as a pocket computer rather than phone anyways.

eBay and Amazon don't have anything yet from what I can see.

The only worthwhile thing you're likely to find for quite some time is this. And it's quite pricey as well. Sadly.

I'm honestly not concerned with the price of that item. I understand I'm in a niche realm, and am willing to pay for the features I want. Thank you for the recommendation, I've got it bookmarked for whenever the LTE version hits the stores.

If you do not mind a stand alone keyboard, you could always get something like this

Thank you for the suggestion, but I was thinking more along the lines of the previous recommendation. I'm sure alot of people don't understand, but I'm very attached to my qwerty slider phones, and am looking for a modern solution to this. For the life of me, I can't understand why in a geek driven market, more people aren't using their smart phones or tablets in IT and Engineering roles for quick code changes, responding to on-call support tickets without having to tote around a full laptop and wait to boot up, etc.. The clothing I wear has large enough cargo pockets for an 8" tablet, so if I could get one that fits with a keyboard, I'd have my next device.

Thanks

Shield tablet wireless keyboard folio-case - another option
Yeah I use mobile like that too - for everything, including gaming.
So I found a wireless KEYBOARD FOLIO CASE reviewed by someone else today and haven't tried it yet but here's the info on it (I am cross posting this data on the keyboard-case threads for this Shield tablet, on xda here, in case people find it useful):

- I came across another wireless case option (by ZAGG, it's pricey but looks very good) from a youtube post about case options for the nVidia Shield Tablet, see:
Cannot post a url here, however here's the info to be sure it's the same video I'm referring to:
v=Obs3tK8onYQ
posted title is "Nvidia Shield tablet case options"
date posted was oct 16 2014
the poster id is wr3ckn89

- I only just saw it today & cannot report my experience yet; The zagg website can show you the local retailers that carry their stuff. Only see 1 seller so far on amazon, with ridiculous wait time, and another with a 2nd 8" model specified for samsung... The zagg site does not yet list nVidia Shields, but they have an 800 number. After looking at the website, I called Zagg customer support & talked to a real person who knew the product.
- Specific model: There is only one model that fits the new nVidia Shield tablet 8", with suitable cutouts etc. - it is the "AUTOFIT" for 8". The other model for 8" tablets won't be right.
- You can find it at retailers, but you can get a 10% discount by calling them to order directly
- It ain't cheap, but it has a 1 year warranty and tech support.
- The keyboard is not backlit (they only have one model of their wireless keyboard cases that does have a backlit keyboard at this time) - BUT they are working on backlit keyboards for their other models including the AutoFit, yay.
