For most phones and tablets it's pretty easy to find decent cases, iPhone and iPad Users are spoilt for choice, Samsung useres can also pick and choose how they like, even for the Nexus 5X and 6P one can find an abundance of cases in any color shape or form. But not for the Pixel C - doubtless this is because of the slender market for this tablet. I have been looking all over the net for a simple TPU case for the Pixel C, you know the type of silicone case that just covers the back of the device but not the screen. All I could find was universal folio cases or smart cases with a lid. I even tried my luck on searching Chinese wholesale but no luck. If anyone has come across a simple back cover only TPU or hard shell case that only covers the back please let me know.

Thanks so much.

I also want a TPU case and haven't found anything anywhere - ebay, amazon, vendor sites

yep. this. i want the rubber bumper case type cover because the back of the device is so slick that it tends to want to slide off my lap. also, it would be nice to have something to soften the bezel edge because it can dig into your hands if you're holding it for a long time.

Totally agree. There seems to be a Chinese design for a bumper case, however it doesn't seem possible to order it at the moment. Anyone else had any luck finding one ?

Potentially

Came across this guy that might fit the bill:
amzn.com/B01CQTFRAK
No reviews and takes forever to ship. If it were cheaper I'd definitely take the jump, but I'm a bit skeptical...:eek:

I already contacted them, the description is wrong. They sell "normal" pu leather folios, some are bundled with headphones or screen protectors. They removed the product i mentioned in my request but all other bundles are still listed with the wrong description.

All products mentioned are found on US Amazon.com

So far the only TPU case I have seen that's for Pixel C <--- does NOT fit Pixel C as customer lefted a photo review on the product he received.
http://www.amazon.com/Junsi-Leather-Headphone-Google-Tablet/dp/B01CQTFSKO

I do not have it in my possession to test the fitment yet, just wanna get the words out with others that's looking for one.
(granted the demo photos doesn't show pixel C in it, but some other products. Just hope these China vendors get the fitment right.)

Other interesting alternatives I have seen so far is the full body coverage skin

Personally I'm currently using Moko's folio cover as the additional thickness it added is still deem acceptable to me and does the job.

Thanks SonySteve I have the skinomi techskin on. Just such a shame though, as I would have loved a simple bumper case.

Hey there, the skinomi skins work just fine. A bit of a pain to apply but not too bad, just watch their intructional Video. But this is just a Skin and no case, so no drop protection really.

That's exactly my concern also. At most it'll just prevent scratches on the original metal body, wouldn't prevent / provide enough protection from possible little bumps / drops during daily uses.

Exactly, a Skin is not enough, a Folio Case will protect the Pixel C allround but I really dislike the front Display flap. Very annoying. I opted for buying the skinomi techskin combined with this http://www.amazon.com/Booncover-Uni...=UTF8&qid=1463390156&sr=8-2&keywords=Reboon+l

This is expensive though. Would have much prefered a simple bumper case. Grrr.

i thought about trying to find a similar shaped tablet and using a tpu case for it and i would just make my own camera/speaker holes. not the prettiest solution but i think it would get the job done. the closest thing i could find to the pixels dimensions was the galaxy tab 10.1. so i'm thinking about picking up this case:

Let u s know how well it fits. Thank you and all the Best

I ordered a cheap chinese tpu case for a samsung galaxy tab 10.1 but it does not fit.

The corners of the Samsung device are rounder than the pixel c. Height and width are ok.

I had to remove the corners of the case, now the tablet fits, but the corners are needed to give the case stability and keep it around the tablet.

Without the corners the case slips down of the tablet easily. I hoped it would fit but without the stability it is useless for me...
