Talking {UPDATE: *INSTALLED* Pix added} *Real* Carbon Fibre Composite Cases

Just as the subject line states: Who is interested in a *Real* Carbon Fibre Composite Case for their Samsung Galaxy Tab?

There is a company in Florida that made my HTC Supersonic (Evo 4G) Carbon Fibre Composite Case. Very very good quality stuff, not only the quality of the fabric is top notch but the fitment is perfect.

About a week ago i contacted them and asked if they would be manufacturing a case for our Galaxy Tabs and they are waiting to see how many requests they get before putting the time in on developement and testing.

How much you ask? Not exactly sure, but they manufacture a case for the iPad which is $124.95 and a majority of their smartphone cases are $99.95, so i would say pricing would be on or around $124.95 for this case.

If you guys are interested, please contact them via Facebook @ www.facebook.com/infinitycarbon or on their website @ http://www.InfinityCarbon.com.


Thanks in advance!



Today, 12/27/10, i was contacted by Infinity Carbon:


"Good news! We are currently working on cases for the Galaxy Tab and they should be available in our store in just a couple of weeks!"


*EDIT*

PROTOTYPE PIX ADDED!!!

Here are pix of the Prototype Carbon Composite Piece. Infinity Carbon has informed me that *INSTALLED* pix will be available sometime next week, which i will post as well. If you would like, you can also PRE-ORDER your Carbon Fibre Composite Case *NOW* just go to:


Any questions, post um, pm um, or you may contact Bryan @ www.InfinityCarbon.com directly or on Facebook @ www.facebook.com/infinitycarbon. My email / gtalk address is XCellFoneSalesRep@gmail.com and MSN is XCellFoneSalesRep@live.com.

If not, everyone have an Awesome, yet safe Happy New Years!!!

I voted yes but then got to thinking about it. Carbon Fiber is very strong but not made to hold up against scuffing and scraping. now if they put a very durable coating over the carbon then I would be interested in it.

What I'd love to see is this type of cover but one that replaces the back cover totally..and wraps around the sides protecting them too. that would make it almost nude size-wise and back pocketable. And, yes, I know that would void my warranty..but looking at my ATT Tab and its faux back carbon lookalike cover made me wish for the real thing..and gave me that idea.

Sounds like an appliqué like the PhantomSkinz Chromatics would suit your needs. Do a little XDA searching for feedback, and I posted a link in the Accessories sub-forum regarding the Tab. It's just a sticker, but it's a good sticker.

I have had poor experience with real CF cases on wireless devices. They look great, they are extremely light and sleek, but they interfere with signal in a major way. In fact one that i purchased for an iPhone i had was a CF/Kevlar composite fabric made specifically to reduce interference, and yet it still caused very noticable interference.

If the weave was thin and loose, then perhaps it would work better in regards to signal, but then it would not be as strong or visually appealing IMO.

good job pls try to do a type of way to have teh cf wrap the sides or at least protect the sides similar to gel cases, i know that you can make flexible type of cf ( i used to work with a cf company for scion parts ) just hope it will look great and protect well =)

Do they have a tighter weave they can use?
