Hi all

Got my Vega yesterday and it is certainly a keeper. But first I need a decent case. @AdventVega say accessories are coming but with no idea of timescale. Has anyone found a case that will do the job? I've seen them for the iPad where they have a little stand on the back which is a nice idea.

Reply with your links!!

Cheers

Found this for a case: http://www.overstock...html?cid=133635

But it appears to be an inch too big in length and width.

There is actually one on the Currys website under the Vega "Quick look" accessories Tony http://www.currys.co...952398-pdt.html Not sure what it's like, but I'll take a look next time I'm there - they were in stock in all my local stores. Use the £5 voucher and it comes down to a reasonable £15!

Good find but not quite what I was thinking of. I like those where the tablet is strapped in and you open it like a book, rather than getting it out everytime you want to use it.

When I saw the link to the sleeve in currys I remember spotting this in tesco's earlier today.

http://direct.tesco....R.208-5084.aspx <---- £7.97

Pretty decent price and it did look like it was going to be a perfect fit.

The only reason I didn't get one is because I have swiped my daughters 10" netbook one B) and I eventually want a case/keyboard for it.


This is what I'm ideally looking for

http://www.amazon.co...ef=pd_rhf_p_t_1

I'm going to see what accessories Advent are going to recommend first b4 I make a definite purchase

don't think i want a zipped one, myself...

this one on amazon looks quite nice, but there are literally gazillions to choose from

there is a docking port on the middle of one of the long sides of the vega, right? (seem to recall from some video or other...) - what is that gonna work with?! i want me a docking station/charging stand at least! will this be able to handle bluetooth keyboard? can someone test this?

desparate to get my hands on one... even sent my very dodgy chinese equivalent back today in anticipation!

I was thinking of picking up one of those cheapy netbook wallets you get from the High Street pound stores. Not sure about dimensions though.


Just to compare dimensions with the iPad and Archos 101.


Advent Vega iPad Achos 101

H 275mm 243mm 270mm

W 178mm 190mm 150mm

D 13.6mm 13mm 12mm



Was hoping maybe the vega could fit in one of the hundreds of iPad cases, but alas different ratio !

The problem with netbook ones is they'll be deeper inside to accommodate a netbook, so although the Vega might fit length and width wise, it still might be a little baggy...

How would that one hold the screen/tablet vertical?

It wont but it will be handy for me when I have a lot of typing to do. Not suitable for every need but handy accessory to have.

Think you'll need one specifically for the Vega's form factor - those Advent guys better have a bunch of accessories lined up! ;-)

For anyone looking for a stand, how about this

Works well for the iPad & Galaxy Tab.

There is a dock port along the bottom long edge. I'm interested in any info on accessories that can make use of it.
