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.
no luck with Amazon or Ebay?
I am not sure what to buy, there is no case for the Slate 8, they have universal 7 & 8 inch but the holes for power ETC. may not match up.
Has anyone had any experience with this yet.
Also looking for an extra power supply
no idea..this is actually the first i have heard of anyone bringing up the Slate 8 Tablet lol. i just typed in up at the top Slate 8 and the only thing that popped up was this thread.
These cases on Amazon are again for the Slate 8 Pro. if you look the camera holes don't line up and also the power charger plug doesn't line either.
I am looking into the Galaxy 8 inch maybe with some mods it may work
I feel your pain! I am a Sprint employee and Product Ambassador for the Slate 8. Currently we don't carry any accessory cases at Sprint.com or in Sprint stores. But that won't stop me from protecting my Slate 8.
I did a search for "universal 8 inch tablet case" and found several good and inexpensive choices on Wal-Mart and Amazon's sites. Most of the universal cases I saw would work just fine for the Slate 8 in that they won't block the "selfie" camera and offer open access to the charge/sync and headphone ports.
If you care to browse the Owner Manual you can read and download here.
Thanks for being a Sprint customer! We appreciate your business.
Thank you for the response, that's customer service right there. Yes your right this thing is too new for stuff to fit it correctly but I did have a bit of luck if anyone else runs into this I bought a cover from a place called Five Below they had a nice collection and I did have to modify it for the cameras, now it does not allow me to prop it up like the fold ones do but the important part to me right now was getting it protected. By the way I really like this tablet so far the touch screen is really reactive it doesn't miss letters or numbers when typing and it's pretty fast...So far so good
Good to hear!
I forgot to add the physical specs of the tablet for other readers:
127.7 x 208.9 x 8.98 mm
5.03 x 8.23 x 0.35 inches
Hope this helps everyone. Thanks again!
Yes I found one at a store called 5 below and I had to modify the back camera hole just a smudge and it's works fine. The power and speaker jack are fine volume too.
