Okay, so I'm wondering if this exists: a book style case for the Galaxy Tab that doesn't add a lot of bulk, but does fold over to allow it to be used as a stand.

I have a GTab 10.1 LTE, and a XOOM 4G, and I'm trying to decide which to keep. I prefer the size and weight of the Galaxy Tab, but the XOOM came with a really great case that doubles as a stand. The Galaxy Tab came with something similar, but it's so thick and sloppy that I might as well be carrying the XOOM for all the weight savings I actually get. Is there anything equivalent for the Galaxy Tab that doesn't make it chunky?

Might be worth a search, there are many threads about cases on here, but...

This is what I have and I like it.

Fits the LTE model, is pretty slim, and makes a nice stand.

Yeha, go for the official one. A wonderful case - Adds almost no bulk, fits perfectly and its very high quality. I love mine, and it was worth every cent.

I'm using the same original case from Samsung, my tab is white and here comes the problem. The internal lining for the case causes black color on the back of my tab which is very hard to remove. I use my original perfume with high quality cloth and pushes very hard to remove this coloration from the stupid case.

Wow, that's pretty bad for an official case :\

I use this case, its some fake leathery material, holds the tab very nice and tight, everything fits perfectly, and its pretty slim for the material its is
Closes with a magnet, which is unfindable on the cover xD
and it can be used as a stand, very nice. and cheap!

+1 on this case. Best one on the market. Its a generic branded by several sellers, so you might search to find it a bit cheaper.

I'm using a "smart cover" style case. not really versatile or transformable, but i do like the one posted above. looks like a great stand for desk/table use. i might have to order that
