Strange, according to EU laws I don't Think they can do that.
Excuse me .. your statement true.
So I have the VersaSleeve. I like it however I kind of want something I can use where I just open teh case like a notebook to take notes. With the VersaSleeve I have to take the tablet out to take notes. And suggestions? Also does anyone know of any rubber/rugged protectors for the edge?
Here are other German online shops with the sleeve:
ASUS Original VersaSleeve 8 SchutzhÃ¼lle fÃ¼r VivoTab Note 8 M80
ASUS VivoTab Note 8 VersaSleeve 20,32 cm (8), Tablet-PC-SchutzhÃ¼lle
Restoring function to my IVSO cover:
Since I cut out the magnets from my IVSO sleeve, I've had no inking problems caused by the strong magnets they put in there. However, I can't use the stand in landscape mode with a keyboard because the stand wont work in landscape without the magnets. I had a hearing cancel this morning so had a few minutes to kill. I found a couple of old Velcro buttons (hook and felt pieces cut in a small circle) and cut them in half. I put them on the back of the IVSO cover like so:
That's basically all there is too it. They permit the tri fold to form a proper base.
Works fine and is stable enough to double as a typing stand. Ideally, I would have used longer strips of industrial strength Velcro but this took all of 30 seconds and works fine.
Well, after much hunting I confirmed there just aren't any sleeve cases besides the VersaSleeve for naked tablet lovers. Was hoping to find something with pockets maybe. Everything is either too loose or too small to fit at all. Gotta give the 8" market time to catch up I guess.
VS arrived today. Got mine $10 less on a MS online store sale. Already I really like it. Minimal as a case and of course fits like a glove. It works remarkably well as a stand in landscape, which I was hoping for. It's held snugly enough that it doesn't move around while working and tapping/typing. So much so that it's fine in the lap, where it's resting now as I bang out this post. Stability is greatly helped by how far back the supporting part sticks out. It's a bit more precarious in portrait, especially the more upright way. Don't know why you'd do that though.
Shallow angle is about 20°, maybe less. Kind of perfect for lap pecking, slightly steep for desk typing. The steeper angle is about 65° and also secure enough to rest solidly on lap(/belly!) or table with a nice viewing angle. The flap in this mode can be folded under without much fuss to still sit neatly on a table. (I was worried this sticking out would eat up precious tray table space on the plane.)
I also have a Bamboo Feel pen. It clips securely and easily onto either spine of the case for on-the-go storage. The magnetic flap is strong too and doesn't cause any interference in stand mode.
I do agree with whyired, bit tedious unsheathing for a quick note. Can't have it both ways though (naked and easy to flip open). Besides that funny new case smell, I think it's about perfect for my tastes. Highly recommend it, even for the premium.
Great review on the VS case ananimus.
I looked for one at the MS store but they didn't have them in stock yet. Glad to hear there's no interference from the magnet closure. I would have hoped Asus engineers looked at that before releasing it.
Yeah, I was optimistic they'd have one since my store had the 64GB AVN8. Alas, I had to order from online MS store. Only took 3 days by standard shipping though.
I'm watching the magnet bit more closely now. Just today noticing touch layer being weird. Seems like a software issue. Split keyboard in landscape is sometimes not letting me type U's, for example. If I open/close keyboard it's suddenly fine again. (So yeah, probably not case.)
Edit: note this is while not near case. Thought at first it may be weird hysteresis effect.
Is this case more like IVSO case or i-Blason one? Schlank Tasche Smart Case Cover Lederhülle Schutzhülle: Amazon.de: Computer & Zubehör
There's no i-Blason case on german amazon, so I guess I'll have to give this case a try... Maybe someone could give me a percentage chance of this case interfering with Asus digitizer?
