Galaxy Tab 10.1 case

Let's talk Galaxy Tab 10.1 cases. We're still not sure exactly what's going to be available at launch in a couple weeks, but Samsung's Gavin Kim gave us a sneak peek at a flip case he's using (on that very cool metallic gray Galaxy Tab no less).

It's a simple yet elegant case. Made of thin plastic, it snaps to the Galaxy Tab 10.1, completely protecting the Honeycomb tablet. It closes like a folio, snapping into place. And then you can turn the case back around on itself, turning it into a stand for the tablet for easier typing. Not exactly a new concept, but it looks simple enough. We've got a few more pics and video after the break.

Hope to buy this case with my 4G LTE Tab!

I love the concept of this case, but it seems to me that I'm gonna have to cut out some holes to put the case on in such a way that the screen power and volume switches don't end up "upside down" at the bottom right. I'd much prefer to have them remain at the top left when using the tab, or to have the charging cable come up out of the "top" of the device. I'm puzzled by how they think this was a good design.

jdm4u says:

samsung likes getting sued huh? Also, couldn't you apply it to the tab while the tab is upside down, so when you prop it up, its right side up?

accordngs says:

Sued? Who are you saying they ripped this idea off of?

jdm4u says:

looks a lot like that smart cover thing from the ipad 2. I think apple would probably find a way to sue samsung for this as well.

accordngs says:

I don't see any similarity. The ipad2 cover is magnetic and does not click into place like this one at all. I see little similarity at all. Apple doesn't have the patent on any cover ever. Not too mention they weren't even the first with that design used on the ipad2.

jdm4u says:

Apple wasn't the first to create anything they sell, yet they manage to sue everyone. I just wouldn't be surprised if they manage to find something about this cover to sue Samsung over, I hope they don't, but with Apple you never know.

moo53 says:

This looks nothing like the smart cover from Apple. For starters this is a full body cover not a screen cover like the smart cover. Also this doesn't unfold to over lay on top of the tablet like the smart cover. I think you are reaching and if Apple tries to sue they reaching too.

@ jdm4u STFU !!!

karnoff says:

Oh did you have a patent for this exact case?!

E_man says:

Who's suing samsung for this? Sure, it looks like a lot of cases, but this is a good case design. I have a third party one on my (soon to be ex I hope) iPad. Works great.

Also, the cutouts might not line up if you flip it.

Edit: Wow, I was late to the party on this one. Guess I should have refreshed before commenting.

trooper54 says:

I like it, looks nice and simple. I like the portfolio look, good job Sammy

Kopter says:

Nice! How about one for the 7" version?

actually looks really nice... but

A. how much weight does it add
B. how much bulk does it add

E_man says:

Very little weight I'm sure, and it looked very thin. He specified it as the thin case.

kp4c says:

And the fact that it has the perfect, official case for my needs, I am officially sold on getting a Tab 10.1

moo53 says:

This case is pretty sweet, looks like I will have to get this and that bluetooth keyboard case which also looks awesome.

E_man says:

Hope they make one for the 8.9. That looks sweet, and the "Galaxy Tab" logo is nice.

michaelee says:

i never did understand the smart cover think, really stupid and looks lame.
can't wait for the GTab 8.9, especially if they come with the cool hard cover we just saw.

JerryGPena says:

I hope they release a gel case

SteveIowa says:

I have to wonder, how long until we'll see one of these, in this store? I need one Phil! : - )

jonyah says:

I wish there was a nice case like this for my transformer. The lack of accessories for it has me concerned.

jkayakj says:

Does anyone know when this case will actually come out? Even though the tablet has come out I have yet to find a decent case for it

HS#AC says:

so when does this bad boy come out?

cdf3 says:

I have this case, and I like it a lot.
It's very thin. I can barely tell I have a case on it at times.

DaEXfactoR says:

anyone have a working link...I need this. I have the Belkin case from Best works...but this seems to have a better profile. Doesnt hide the beauty of the Tab....

drethos says:
