    I just bought this from ebay. It's going to take 2 weeks to get here from China but I think it's worth the wait. I have one similar to this for my old Nexus 7. I like it cause it's very easy to slide the tablet out of it. I for one like to hold my DV8P naked. It's only when I want to watch a movie or browsing laying down in my bed I always wish I could have a stand for it. In that situation with a similar case I usually put my N7 on my chest. Now that I own DV8P and love it, it's time to retire the N7 and get this case. Can't wait.

    Coming from China is never a good thing. I ordered a case from PDAir that shipped from China. It was so long ago that I can't even remember what it looks like. I think I ordered on 12/15 .. they didn't even ship for 10 days after placing the order. I think they must make them to order or something. I hope I am attaching the picture correctly. To tell the truth .. The more I look at it, the more I wonder if this is for the phone and not the tablet.

    Anyone know the size of the DVP phone? I am pretty sure the case I ordered from BFE is for the DVP phone. Wonder if it will fit any of my other gadgets.
    Has anyone purchased this one? The Poetic SlimBook .. I think I will order one ...

    just received my moko case and i'm impressed so far. i'm a little worried about the plastic clips because if they snap, then it's useless. had issues with the tablet fitting crookedly at first but was able to fix that. i ordered the dell keyboard too but unless it blows me away, looks like i'll be returning that since this is a quarter of the price. i'd like to see how that chinese one from ebay is tho but returning that would be such a hassle.

    I have had one for about 3 weeks. Very well built and very sturdy. When I got it, it was so stiff that I had to flex it for a while to make it work. Now, it works fine and I really like it.

    I was worried about the the plastic clips damaging the sides of the tablet until I realigned them differently, the clips were before blocking the charging port and causing accidental Windows key presses. Now after realigning them, there are no issues, the tablet clings pretty firmly.

    i didn't even realize they were blocking the charging port. good call on the realignment, i just did the same thing. and it doesn't feel as tight so hopefully it will keep the plastic clips from snapping. thanks!

    got my official dell keyboard today. i really like the way it looks but not sure yet if i'm gonna keep it over the moko case/keyboard. it's also pretty heavy, but probably because it is well built. i also feel like the keys are not raise enough so you have to apply much more pressure when typing. honestly, if i end up keeping it, it will mostly be for the looks. but with the cost, not sure if looks alone is enough to convince me to keep it.

    Someone's brief video of the Dell Tablet Wireless Keyboard.



    Looks nice, but nothing's keeping the case closed and the keyboard layout is unusual. Guess I'll go with a case without a keyboard (not sure I want plastic clips holding down my device) and the Wedge Keyboard.

    I bought the Moko type case(same case different name) now I've besides to return the Dell ( think) just not sure about the heat issue and the mis taps issues. Going to compare it to the Sony tap 11( I have the tap 20 and love it). Now what to do with he cases I bought? Ebay here I come.

    If those new images are accurate, it looks like the IVSO keyboard case doesn't use those plastic clips present on the other keyboard cases.

    I picked up the aceabove case from amazon
    Amazon.com : AceAbove SlimBook PU Leather Folio Stand Case for Dell Venue 8 Pro 32 GB 64 GB Tablet (Windows 8.1) Black (3 Year Manufacturer Warranty From AceAbove) : Computers & Accessories

    It is constructed just like Dell's Folio, but out of PU leather instead of plastic. it feels a lot better in the hands than the dell case and still provides a stylus loop. it also has a place for credit cards, i will probably stick a few business cards in the slot for GP. I like that it is using a plastic shell to hold the case in stead of straps or an enclosure that blocks the bezel. the PU leather also has a good grain on it so it ALMOST looks like real leather

    Okay, as promised, here are some pictures of the absolute beauty. This case exhibits high quality materials and workmanship. The man-made leather reminds me of leatherette seat material on a BMW, unlike the plastic material used in a Ford or Chevy. I took these pics with a dslr but unfortunately I had to shrink them to size appropriate for this forum.

    As you can see, the access to the buttons and headphone jack is unobstructed. The camera opening is dead center.

    One thing that I'm particularly after is that this case lets me slide the DV8P in and out easily without popping it out of a plastic bracket or leather pocket like in other cases, yet it holds the tablet securely. I can use my tablet naked when I want to, which is what I've been doing, fully appreciating the DV8P's look and feel. I'm totally happy with how it works. Totally worth the long wait imo.

    In case anyone is interested, the ebay seller is 'luckygirl520'.

    I've not had any luck finding that case, and I've been waiting for it for a long time. Can you give a link or something? I picked up the official Dell keyboard/folio case combo and I'm pretty disappointed with how bulky/unwieldy it is.

    The link to the item I bought took me to this active one. I'm sure the link will only be active until the unit(s) are sold.

    I see that it's cheaper now. Keep in mind that it's Chinese New Year over there and most businesses typically shut down for a couple of weeks.
