Default PDair leather case

Checked with PDair... new leather case coming end May for TF.
..no pricing yet but guess it would be same as iconia n xoom price of US$119....free shipping world wide... go to pdair.com to checkout iconia n xoom case. Nice good quality....but expensive .... for those interested n want to spend...another very good option.

Ya, saw on their site, sleeves are available.

But the folio case still not available but pricing is...just like I had guessed...same as the Iconia at US$119....free shipping worldwide though.

Quality wise..... will definitely be good, i had their case for my other gadget (phone)

But then again...its not cheap but material is very good and its real leather so will not peel like PU do, but cost is high

its personal choice really....spending about 1/3 to 1/4 of the tablet price (depending on where you got your tablet) on a leather case may not be everyone liking....so to each his own, but its really good stuff

I can't say I like the looks of them... I have a similar, but "clip in" style case for my Gtab that is a lot cooler, I got for 50$

this:


It folds flat, and clips closed... I love it. I hope a case like this comes out for us- I've seen them for xoom

Who manufactures the one you have/had for the GTab? Perhaps we could try contacting them.

This is almost the same as the ver 2 of the PDair case, which i prefer to the ver 1.

Ver 1 or 2 are basically different deisng for the kick stand, v1 need the flap and v2 uses grooves on the inner side of the main cover lid.

I am not sure about the quality of your gtab, looks good and 50 is good price...looking at the Pdair similar case for the playbook at 65, I also feel that 119 is on the high side perhaps on the size which need more leather.

One thing I am sure, PDair leather is good quality and age very well.

Cheers

Hahaha

As mentioned before to each his own...have you seen or own PDair cases before...I dont deny its expensive but not insane as the quality is really superb.

check out any genuine leather case and you will see the the pricing is around 85 and above on average...you can get for playbook, ipad and smaller devices case for cheaper I guess for the fact that its smaller and less leather needed and also for some devices, the circulation is greater number and more competition, esp for ipad...many competitors cases.

ANyway is it worth getting? depends, if you intent to keep your TF for long, e.g. more than 1 year to 2 years, then perhaps yes, if you hop around devices then most probably no.

I am not in any way affiliated to PDair...just a very satisfied user of prior PDair case....I am also considering and really the price is the main consideration, I have no doubts on the leather and the workmanship from prior experience....will wait for 3.1 update to see whether TF and Honeycomb is a real keeper if it is, then I will get the case...

Just my 2cents...cheers
