Again I did a quick search and only found a few posts and most were about a harder TPU "silicone" style case. I'm looking for a soft rubber (silicone) case or some other skin to remove the slippery feel of the metal. I found this on Amazon and a few references around the web to it: http://www.amazon.com/Fosmon-Soft-Silicone-Iconia-Black/dp/B005E2JJ74 but really nothing here when I search the forum for Fosman. I was also thinking about a ZAGG skin and screen protector, a friend at work has this for his iPad, ditched the screen protector and kept the skin on the back to provide more grip (which it does very well), if anyone has the Zagg product on their a500 I'd like to read about it. My last choice would be to mask and spray the metal parts with Plasti Dip: Plasti Dip Protective Coating Products | Plasti Dip Protective Coating Products | Rubber Dip Coating But this is a little permanent and I'm not sure how long it will last without peeling. Currently I have some strips of gaffer tape on my tablet and this has made a huge difference in removing the slip potential, but it is ugly so I need to find a better choice. I looked at the leather cases and none really fit the way I want, and since most of what I want to do is in portrait mode, none (that I've seen) will provide a stand. An automotive style holder will probably be modified for a portrait stand for my desk at work for reading manuals.
