    Great review! I'm 100% in agreement with you. If they moved the pen holder to the side, or even the top, to me, it would be a perfect case.

    USPS tracking stayes mine has left San Francisco!

    I definitely need this case as currently I'm put off from using the tablet on it's own (without the dock). I'm worried it's going to scratch and that it's slippery and might fall out of my hands

    Got my case today - just 4 working days from the US, fantastic!

    First impressions of the case are that it looks good (the smell is strong though).

    I can't wait to go home and pop the Vivo Tab in!

    Any chances those of you who got different cases could do some pictures (front, back, sides) of how TF810c fits in them? Especially front is important to see how much of the screen is covered...
    Thanks!

    The Amazon pictures of the Poetic Slimbook case are quite accurate.

    Amazon.com: Poetic Slimbook Case for ASUS VivoTab TF810C-C1-GR 11.6-Inch Tablet (3 Year Manufacturer Warranty From Poetic): Computers & Accessories

    Here is the one of the front, showing the quarter-inch gap all of the way around between the display and the case edge, aloowing access to the Charms.

    The best I could do right now

    It's not a bad case, but When folding behind it does not go flat (maybe I'm being too cautiious on it's spine)

    The pen holder at the back is a very poor design choice

    See the attachment

    Thanks for pictures and opinions. Does any one decided to for Flexbook? I am thinking it might be more practical than Original Asus one. I could have tablet inside whole time and just remove keyboard when not needed. Question is, how stable is tablet inside on its own? Would it, as slimbook wake up tablet after opening? Or, without keyboard would it be to big/loose... I am really torn between the two :-(.

    I would be interested in the flexbook cover all. The slim book is great and the reason why i got it was to avoid keeping the tablet with the keyboard all the time. For example, sometimes when lying in bed I just want to do some minor surfing and watching a film.

    However, when out and about I'm thinking perhaps the flexbook cover would be the best option. I'm torn.

    Just ordered Flexbook from Amazon. I will let you know what I think once I get it... but it will be some time. :-(
    Are they sending it from Asia?
