Default Let's Talk Cases!

Hello everyone! get

I didn't see a thread here for cases so here it is!

So far, as anyone can imagine, there are not too many cases out yet for the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition. But there are a few on amazon and ebay. I think I am going to buy a cheap-o one for right when I it (I pre-ordered the tablet on amazon.com) and then a nice one when it comes out. Here are my favorites so far. What do you think?!

I will edit and update with more as they come in...

Amazon:

Ebay:

Available: now

What I am really looking for is a case with a certain type of hinge that doesnt seem to be popular for some reason. It looks like this:



If anyone can find one like this example for the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition I would be forever grateful

If I don't find one with a hinge like I have pictured above I will probably get the official one when it comes out depending on price:

i have the transformer version of the ebay link you posted, i can say that the case is pretty decent, no odd fake leather scents or anything, holds the tablet in place nice and snug and the bottom portion hold the dock (this one of course doesnt). it can stand as well, kind of like what you're looking for.

I have used slim-fit style cases on all my tablets, who wants a bulky case on a nice slim tablet? I was going to order this one on Amazon. but shipping from China would get it here late Nov.

Speaking of Samsung accessories, where the hell are they? No where to be found, Samsung's own site doesn't list them and the tablet is what 11 days out. Do they expect us to spend $600+ on a tablet then way 2 months for accessories to appear.

Totally agree. I hope they come out with the book cover at least during launch on Oct. 10th!

I'm using my mom's galaxy note 10.1 and she has a zenus leather journal case which is very nice. the quality is superb and functionality wise it offers as much as anything out there: two different degrees of view angles in landscape mode and one (iffy) angle for portrait. From what I can' tell this company makes really nice cases. I'm interested to see what will come out for the 2014 edt.

Smile Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 and Galaxy tab 3 10.1 cases

Correct me if I'm wrong but the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 and Galaxy tab 3 10.1 seem to have the same dimensions.
Doesn't this mean we can use the same cases as well. Maybe not for all of them since there are differences in ports on the side etc.but some of the cases are fully exposed on the side and as such wouldn't make a difference.

I was looking at the zenus case for the galaxy tab 3 10.1.....I'm thinking it might fit.

(I would post the link but I'm a newbie and the site prevents me from doing so)

If they have the same dimensions I'd imagine it would fit, however there might not be holes/openings in the right places to accommodate the S-Pen, camera, charger, buttons etc.
