    Thats a link for the Acer Sleeve in question. Went to OW today in Adelaide, both stores don't have them, apparently they're online order only, and even then, due to them being clearance stock, there might not be any left.

    I'm sure there system was only checking SA stores, NSW will probably have one somewhere. You're best off calling your local OW store though rather than wasting the petrol only to find they don't have one!

    I'll continue my hunt for a sleeve/case... Thats the one real negative with these tablets, no accessories.

    Was that Ebay link supposed to take me to a case/sleeve, because it took me to the main Ebay page?

    On another note, any decent Forex app's out there for Android?

    Either the link is broken or the item has been removed. Happens all the time when i get my email alerts. One out of ten will just take me to the home page, and that's coming straight from ebay.

    I was going to get one of those style cases for my TF300T, but after doing some reading there were pretty daming reports about those style cases putting too much stress on the screens (between the bit that keyboard clips into, and the screen), when they are closed up. End result was cracking screens/marking screens.

    I've just gone with a Belkin 10.2" netbook bag with hardcover shell. Together it fits in there fine, and if just using tablet, keyboard can stay in there.

    The minisuit looks just like the generic leather cases that can be had off Ebay. Thanks for the link.

    On another note, I just tried out Chrome, much better than the default browser. Faster, pages render better and I don't get crazy things happening when theres an embedded Youtube video. Overall I'm quite impressed. Will try out Chrome tomorrow. Heard if you want to use Flash, you'll need the ICS+ browser.

    Don't forget bookmark and tab syncing across devices.

    I prefer chrome in general but have it took me a while to realise that ABC iveiw does work on the tablet you just need to use the default browser. Must be a setting or something that's not supported in the chrome mobile browser.

    I actually think they will get a native app soon, the GG team mentioned on last weeks show that there is a GG app coming soon which may or may not co-incide with iview (here's hoping) until then, regular browser works fine.

    Good point, I like this too! Chrome rocks, just converted my brother from Dolphin.

    Update on usage, I'm hurting from the lack of App's that I used to use on the iPad for work. But in general usage, the TF craps all over the iPad. It's like having a small laptop that has incredible battery life. Hasn't crashed yet, everything works really well. Still quite happy with it.

    Oh and I bought a Case logic 10" netbook sleeve which has a small pocket on the front for $35 from Myer. I gave up on finding accessories lol.
