OK I know it's new but does anyone have any idea where I could find a case for this new tablet. Even compatible will work. I see ones for the HP Slate 8 Pro and was wondering if this would fit it. Dimensions on cases are not real good online
Solved! Go to Solution.
Ok, so I ordered an 8" case from Amazon. Took more than a week to arrive and darn, it was a 10" case. So now on to the return phase.
I have visited Target and WalMart stores and no case that would work with this Slate 8". This weekend I received a Nebraska Furniture Mart sales flyer in the Sunday paper. I will be going to the store to check it out and will post when I get it.
Again I picked mine up at a store called 5 Below, not sure if they are a Michigan only store. It works perfect for me. I did the same thing I bought one from Ebay and it said for an 8 inch tablet (universal) usually when they state Universal it doesn't fit anything and it didn't.
This is what I did. Put a 'universal' Five Below case on it for an 8" tablet. It fits well, although it doesn't cover the device from edge to edge. That said, it was 5 bux, and it has a little elastic strap to keep it closed. Even though the camera hole doesn't line up, it's easy enough to take it out of the case to use the camera if that's what I need to do.
Just searched Amazon and a specific case is now available. Haven't tried it yet but ordering for my wife.

It's not just the fact that there are no tablet cases, but there are NO screen protectors! I can't find them anywhere that fit this size of tablet. I have looked on Amazon, looked for universal ones, and nothing. They don't exist. I keep getting hits for cases but nothing for the screen protectors.....I bought some from amazon that said they were universal 8" tablet screen protectors but they are completely the wrong size for the Sprint Slate 8" tablet *angryface*
