Excellent Case for the HP Touchpad,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HP TouchPad Custom Fit Case (Personal Computers)
I picked up this case as soon as I could from Amazon, since availability is currently limited in retail stores. I've had it on my Touchpad for few days now, and I've been extremely impressed with it. The case fits extremely snugly onto the tablet, and will eliminate all fears of fingerprints on the shiny back of the Touchpad. The case can also be folded back to form a stand to use the Touchpad in landscape mode. It really holds the tablet at a nice angle, and makes typing on it quite easy. I should note that when you fold the case, it uses velcro to form the stand, it does not fold up completely on itself. It is very solid when in this "stand" configuration. The case also does not obstruct usage of any of the buttons on the tablet.
If you have a touchstone for the Touchpad, it will charge through this case. If you fold the case back and put it on the touchstone in landscape mode, there is enough room on the touchstone for the tablet to remain on it, and charge.
The case has a really nice, matte feel to it, and seems very durable. It is also very thin, and does not add much weight at all to the Touchpad. Definitely recommended.

There is NOT enough room on the ledge for the folio and the touchpad. There are only two orientations that work when charging the touchpad with the touchstone (landscape with speakers on the bottom and portrait with button on the bottom). So when I put the folio on the touchstone with the spine side down (the only way that would allow the touchpad to charge), the spine takes up the entire ledge. No part of the touchpad is actually on the ledge. If the spine of your case is not 100% flat (mine's kind of arched), then your touchpad will not sit 100% flush with the touchstone. The flap on the case doesn't sit flush with the touchpad either. Everything just looks crooked. =[

The correct landscape orientation for touchstone charging is with speakers at the bottom, with the folio cover folded behind the device and it charges perfectly on the touchstone.
