    Since I haven't found a case I like, I decided to protect my Iconia with a skin. [​IMG]

    Not bad for $20.

    Sorry about the blurry front picture, but you the idea the graphic wraps from screen edge to edge.

    If you are interested, here is the site that made the skin.

    Unique Skins

    No I am NOT affiliated with them, whatsoever.

    Tomorrow, I skin the wife's.

    I got a skin for mine too. However, it doesn't really protect since it is a sticker, so I got a case for backup. If you are still looking for a nice case, then I suggest trying this case (http://www.amazon.com/Acer-Protective-Case-Black-Leather/dp/B0055DNR48/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&m=A2OZQWEINT2QE3&s=generic&qid=1308665798&sr=1-10). The best parts about the case is that it folds into a stand, and it has enough room for any connection which makes my life a lot easier. Make sure you get a screen protector! A friend recommended a screen protector for mine, and it was the smartest advice. Within a couple of months, I can already see the abuse that the screen protector took. When I took off the screen protector to check the condition of the screen, the screen had no scratches whatsoever. If you are interested, I got mine from this place.
