Hello! I'm an avid xda reader but just joined the discussions =)

I got an A500 but am waiting for my brother to bring it to me (he got it in the US for 330$ and I live in Brazil, where it would cost me around 800$), so I haven't had the opportunitty to check this out myself.

Which would drain more battery from the tablet: a USB wired keyboard or a bluetooth keyboard??

If anyone could give me suggestions on a case that holds the keyboard+tab (and that ships worldwide), I would be very grateful!

Thanks!

I'm not sure, but I think that bloetooth keyboard will consume more than usb one. Simply you need to have bluetooth run all the time, when you using keyboard.

If you looking some case for your Iconia, and you need to transport it with keyboard, you should think about some case with keyboard build in. Ebay should help.
