Open and Shut Case
While you can get any number of cases for iPad tablets, for most other slates you have to settle for a generic cover that might or might not fit and could cover up its ports and cameras. No more, with Kensington’s latest cases for Samsung’s Galaxy Tab tablets.
The padded KeyFolio Pro works with the 10.1-inch Tab 3 system. It’s available in five colors as well as basic black and comes with a Bluetooth wireless keyboard that has six rows of keys. The keybaord is magnetically held in place. There’s a slot at the top for stowing a stylus when it’s not in use, but you’ll need to provide it yourself. The cover folds so that it can set up the slate at a variety of viewing angles for different tasks and costs $100.
While the Comercio Soft Case & Stand also has been designed to work with the 10.1-inch Tab 3, it costs just $40. It lacks a keyboard, but you can order it 7 different vibrant colors. Folded open, it has a two-position stand for viewing the Tab slate at different angles. There’s a place for an ID and pen or stylus as well as a room to stash notes and scraps of paper.
