What's Hot: Durable, well built, and super slim.
What's Not: Price is a bit high.
With the release of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android Honeycomb tablet, Samsung came out several cases for the tablet. One of them is the super slim yet protective Book Cover Case for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Book Cover is a portfolio style case that has a hard plastic tablet holder and a durable nylon cover that has hard insert and soft lining. The case also functions as a tablet stand in one position and leaves all ports on the tablet open.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Book Cover Case currently comes in black only, and Samsung sells it for $59.99. While that?s not a cheap price for a case, the Book Cover is well built, protects the entire Galaxy Tab 10.1 and is incredibly slim. The tablet holder on the right holds the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in four corners and leaves ports and buttons on the sides of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 open for easy access. The cover protects the tablet screen and it wraps around with a wide lip and closes the case on the back with a magnet closure. Both the tablet holder and the front cover have a soft foam-like lining that won?t scratch your tablet. While the tablet hold is made with hard plastic and the front cover has hard insert, both sides of the case are super slim yet feels rugged at the same time.
Since the tablet holder on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Book Cover Case holds the tablet by its four corners, the stereo speakers, charging/syncing port and side buttons on the tablet are wide open. The case has perfect cutouts for the audio jack and rear camera and flash, so you can use all of them while the tablet is sitting in the case.
The closure lip on the front cover acts like a stand. Fold the front cover back and insert the closure lip into the stand slot to prop up your tablet. The stand only supports one viewing angle, which is good for browsing on the tablet or using an external keyboard while tilting the tablet for a better viewing angle.
Sturdy and slim, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Book Cover Case is a great case to protect the tablet from poke, bumps and scratches in a computer bag or backpack. The case is durable, well built and doesn?t add much bulk or weight. It has nice soft lining and the stand works for certain tasks. The case isn?t cheap however and has only one viewing angle for the stand.
