    If I'm reading this correctly, it will work with ANY Android tablet, even 8GB, 16GB, 32GB THRiVEs. It even works with an Android phone, anything that uses Bluetooth really. I haven't tried it on a Windows platform, I don't own anything running iOS but I'm sure it would work with that as well, but the keyboard is optimized for an Android platform.

    The stylus, as long as you buy a capacitive touch screen compatible stylus, it will work regardless the price. If you buy a stylus for a resistive touch screen (like a Nintendo DS stylus) it most likely will not work. Here is an article on the difference between capacitive and resistive touch screens http://www.knowyourcell.com/features...resistive.html. The THRiVE uses capacitive (which is the best of the two IMHO). The stylus in one of my pictures above was purchased at Best Buy for I think $9.99. There do exist cheaper ones and definitely more expensive ones (I've seen some around $90.00!!!!!). I don't think there is much that can be screwed up with a stylus (come on, it's a cylinder for crying out loud) so I don't think there will be any advantages from owning a $100 stylus compared to a 99 cent stylus. I can vouch $10 stylus' are pretty decent.

    Hi, new member here. Have the Thrive for about a month now and love it.

    I also have the Kensington folio/BT keyboard and it works great (except for the annoyingly small Shift and Enter keys). You can get it much cheaper at Amazon (dot com or dot ca) than Best Buy. I think BB has it at $119.99CDN while I got mine at Amazon.ca at $69.99 plus $5 shipping.

    On quick looks;

    The first one listed is smaller, lighter and more expensive.
    The second is larger, heavier and cheaper.

    Retention methods are similar, but not identical.
    I'm thinking that the latter would be better for the TT as it's .8" thicker (to accomodate the thicker TT)

    Pure speculation, though, as they only give outside dimensions, not the dimensions of the attachment points.
    I seem to recall the possible downside of both of these cases is that the corner retention pieces are held in by a hook and loop material (like a solid Velcro hook material on the corner piece with the inside of the case being the fuzzy part). I'm not sure that the extra weight/mass of the TT would be held securely enough.

    Since I made my own version of this for about $40, I really can't justify $54 for an experiment.

    I guess that none of our 12K+ members have this case or they'd have jumped in by now.

    Exactly...I was wondering if anyone had tried both...I noticed one of them had no reviews at all!
