Just saw on a chinese forum that a case/stand is being sold in China that's designed for the TF. The cost over there is 88yuan.. approx $13-14 USD. It looks sturdier then the official one. I hope it'll get listed on ebay soon!

I'm really hating these cheap "leather" cases I'm seeing for tablets. Its mainly the huge "frame" around the screen that I'm not liking.

Thanks, looks interesting. If it is cheaper than the ASUS case, I might give it a try.

I get what you mean and I am all for a < $20 solution, but I also dont want something that is going to add 50% more weight/size to the tablet. Plus a lot of the "leather" ones that I have seen are the very cheap type of "leather" that is more "plasticy" and will fall apart fast. This is not my experience with this exact product, just with other products like it. Its just disappointing that there isnt better cases available for the transformer yet. Its really to bad we dont have a "smart cover" type option like the ipad has. That is pretty slick and I am definitely not a apple fan.

I agree, i would pay a premium for a smart cover like option.
