The release of the Tega v2 having occurred just last week, has meant that a couple of the accessory items are not quite ready… One of those was the leather cases that I wanted to protect my Tega v2 from the bumps n bruises that would occur having it with me 24 x7. So today a trip to Frys was in order. For those that don’t know, Frys is a major retailer here in the USA of all things geek… Imagine if you will (for the aussies) a Bunnings Hardware House that was just full of geek stuff… yeah – now you’re starting to get the idea!
So off we went to Frys to find a case. It also gave me the first real chance to compare the iPad with the Tega v2. Below you can see a photo of me with both devices in front of the iPad stand. We didn’t want to attract too much attention from the Fry’s staff so we only hung around long enough to take the photo before moving on to other places in the store. While we were there though we had half a dozen people asking about “What is that device…” When I told them it was a Windows version of the iPad they were all over us wanting more… Hugo – if I had cards, I would have given them out This to me confirms though that people really do want a Windows based iPad device.
Oh – and the case I picked up was a Belkin case designed for 10” netbooks. Fits my Tega v2 like a glove. Maybe Hugo can do a deal with Belkin to get some printed with Tega v2 on the outside.. hehehe
This blog post is written on my Tega v2 with nothing more than my fingers (look ma… no keyboard)
Updated 19/10/2010 – The case was a Belkin Netbook Portfolio – 2410YW is the model number I think.
