    Layered cases like the OtterBox

    Are there any rugged cases? Otterbox, ballistic, seidio, etc, I don't care if it's a generic or anything. I like the usb ports on this and a writeable sd card slot, I might actually prefer this over the Xoom(I'm buying a tab soon), but I'd like to know if this tab has any decent rugged case solutions. Thanks!

    Not yet for my knowledge. If otterbox made a defender case for us that would be sick. A couple of us emailed otterbox to see if they have anything in the works. Nothing at the moment.

    My caselogic appache tablet case is good for now.

    I have the same problem. I love the Thrive, but it's looking like I'm going to have to get a Xoom, Tab, A500, or Transformer just because there isn't a single ruggedized case available for the Thrive, nor even the slightest visible ray of hope for one anywhere on the horizon.

    If anybody wants to beg another company with cool cases (but unfortunately, only for the iPad and Galaxy Tab) to consider the Thrive, check out gumdropcases.com. It almost looks like you could play frisbee with a tablet when one of those cases are on it.

    Companies confirmed to have no visible plans to make a bumper/ruggedized case for the Thrive:
    • Otterbox
    • Seidio
    • Amzer
    • Gumdrop
    • Ballistic
    Rays of hope:
    • none, so far
    Sigh. About a week and a half left to find a viable case on the horizon for the Thrive so I can go ahead and buy one before Newegg's sale ends.

    Could anyone give me a clue where to get a hard shell overcase to the Bobj ? I searched the internet but couldn't find any. Thanks.
    To me, a hard shell cover is indispensable for Bobj because the most fragile portion of the tablet is the screen, not the corners or the back. I actually don't like the idea of adding any cover on the back because we really should make use of the unique rubber-surface of the tablet.
