    is there a PTU, rubber, or silicone shell-type case for the Touchpad?
    (without a flap to cover the screen)

    thanks!

    Subscribing in hopes for a rubber/silicone/etc. type of case. Ideally, that's what I really want. Even if it's just a rubber/silicone "edging" that goes around the edges would be nice.

    I found a Griffin FlexiGrip iPad 1 case at a local Verizon Wireless store for $5 -- it's a silicone case and fits the TouchPad pretty well. My only complaint is that, like other silicone cases, it can be a bit of a dust/lint magnet.

    Here's a youtube review that shows the case from various angles:

    Thanks. After actually using the search feature, I found this:

    It appears that not even the silicone case(s) will fit.

    Looks interesting. And it's supposedly, made ONLY for the TP - ie. they're "claiming" it not to be an iPad case.

    I'll probably pick one up.

    It was $13 earlier, and dropped to $10, which makes it more tempting, but now I'm being super-cheap and looking for coupon codes. Free shipping would seal the deal.

    I was about to order one, but someone in another thread it wouldn't fit at all.

    Did anyone get this yet? Is the case thick enough to absorb the shock of a fall or is it mainly just for scratch protection and looks?

    I have bought a Griffin Standle eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace no idea if it will work but it was cheap so... keep your fingers crossed.

    I would love an otterbox made for the tp, but with it being discontinued the chances are slim to none.

    I too was interested in the silicone case sold by iShoppingdeals because it says that it is made for the TouchPad. However the screen protectors that come with it SAY they are made for TouchPad in the title, but in the description for the screen protectors it says "Compatible With Toshiba Thrive 10.1 Inch ONLY (Digital Device Not Included)". So I am wondering if the case is also a Toshiba Thrive case.

    Here is the link
    iShoppingdeals - for HP TouchPad 9.7 Inch 16/32 GB Tablet Anti-Fingerprint, Anti-Glare, Matte Finishing Screen Protector (2 Packs)

    EDIT: It looks like they just copied the description from one of their other items. I can not find this case anywhere else under a different device listing. So perhaps this is a real deal honest to goodness HP TouchPad case. At $9.99 it is pretty tempting.

    EDIT #2: I decided to order one. I should receive it between Sept. 19th - Sept. 22nd. If no one has reviewed it by then, I will post my first impressions and if necessary a detailed review.

    The kit with the case says for TP only, and I have a screen protector, so I'd probably sell those off or something. The case pictures show a TP and the case has the proper holes cut out.

    The Thrive protectors also have a different SKU than the TP protectors, so I'd venture to figure it's a bit of product description copy-paste gone wrong.

    If/when it hits $6.99 again, I'll buy it and post the results.

    (Price of kit: Y U no drop again?!)

    Let me know how this goes. I would be curious to learn if this would be an easy or hard mod.

    Thanks in advance.

    The Toshiba is quite a bit longer and narrower at 272x175 instead of 240x190 for the TP so hopefully the difference would be obvious even in the photos.

    Ref the Griffin standle I posted about above, it's about 0.5-1mm too thin and won't clip together but the back piece is very thick heavy duty plastc so maybe I can grind it down if I feel the urge.

    I think you mean "tpu" case. If that is so then that is what I need to. Just like the one they sell for cell phones it is thicker then the thin silicone cases and is kinda like rubber. I am sick of the folio case already. the best would be a tpu case with a elastic strap on the back that I could slide my hand into so I could hold the tp like one of those beach game paddles.

    I should be receiving my case from iShoppingDeals either today or tomorrow. Can't wait to review it for you all. By the way, has anyone found any other good looking TouchPad specific Silicone/TPU cases yet?
