I wasn't too impressed with the official HP Case, many things I didn't like. I had a look around elsewhere, but the only other kind of case that would fit the Touchpad were folio leather style cases. Whilst the expensive ones look nice, they all add a lot of bulk.

Then, I came across this...

The Official Apple iPad 1 case...

It's fairly similar to HP's design, only I think a lot nicer.
I've just ordered it from Amazon UK for 15, so I'll report back when I get it.

I'm certain it will fit and all ports are easily accessible.
So, has anyone else got / considered this?
What do you all think?

William.

you need to cut holes for Speakers and the headphone jack.

Speakers yes, but I never use them.

Headphone jack, no they are in the same place as the touchpad ?

It might not be a great fit, remembering the TP corners are not as sharp so there will be gaps there. It looks like the sides are sort of silicon and the pad fits in the same way as with a silicon skin. The TP sides are beveled not straight like the iPad so it might not hold well but if you have 31 to spare and want to try it you can report back

I'll report back, but I think it will be ok

Don't know why people keep trying this, thinking they will get a different result.

Here are the dimensions for you:
HP TouchPad - 240 x 189 x 14 mm
Apple iPad - 243 x 190 x 13 mm

As you see the TouchPad is thicker and you will see why that is a problem when you get the case. The TP will not fit completely within the depth.

Have you all actually tried this in its case? I'm not convinced it won't work... its only a mm thicker, which is practically nothing.

I can confirm the HP Touchpad fits inside the Apple iPad case.


The lid does not close all the way, it stays a little bit open, but not a big problem.

The edges of the HP Touchpad are not as sharp as the iPad, so you have a little spacing between the case and the TouchPad corners, not a big deal.


All the ports are accessible.

The speakers are covered because of the flap inside the case, but you are still able to hear the sound. You can also use the different positions on the case, the typing position and the standing up position for viewing videos. I tested this on my extra iPad case I had lying around from when I had an iPad 1.

Also, my personal preference is that even a warped HP folio case is better than Apple's first effort. Sharp edged make it hard to hold and the material isn't very nice. We used to have my mum's iPad in one those, wasn't too good. She much prefers her purple plastic (i think silicon) case. Just wish there was a HP TP silicon back case!
