Hey everyone, I got my Moko case I mentioned earlier in the the thread from Amazon.
I just wanted to give a little mini review since it's a brand new product on Amazon and for this tablet. First and foremost, I think this is a great case/folio for the money. It's about half the cost of the Lenovo Folio case and has a couple of great features that I think make it a better choice than Lenovos.
The reviews that I have seen about the Lenovo Folio have suggested that they are unsure about longevity and quality the "inner case" that is glued to the folio. This case has all of its seams sewn very tightly and has a good feeling of qaulity and sturdiness.
The review I saw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=naFnPV3ALdc
also showed me that the folio case does not have a way of holding the case shut.
Going back to my new case, I thought I would show the differences between it and the Lenovo case.
1.) Rather than being held in by a hard plastic (inner case) this folio is held in along the spine of the case using velcro. This case was definitely meant to have the TPT kept in it long-term. Depending on your needs, it might not be an ideal solution as the Lenovo Folio was designed more for situations that one might want to take the TPT out easily and more frequently.
2.) Something not mentioned in the Amazon description is that this case has a magnetic strip that keeps the front cover secured. I think this is a great feature that keeps the front secured.
All in all I think this is a great case that offers a better value (for me) than the Lenovo case. Any other questions let me know!
EDIT: one more thing that I am not sure can been seen in the product description or photos, is that the SD Card/SIM Card door is covered by a strap with this case. Probably another dealbreaker for those needing frequent access to the SD Card/SIM. For me, it being a WiFi tab and having the largest SD Card I can get in, it doesn't effect me. I still think this is a great bargain of a case.

Ok, finally received the folio I ordered, despite the late arrival, the seller was fantastic. FedEx lost the original package, it's in Georgia somewhere, after conferring with the seller and agreeing to wait a while longer, with a refund of the shipping fee, the package was still a no show. I spoke with Jim on Saturday, and he said he would send it to me 2 day on Monday, and he did, at no further cost to me.
On to the folio. It is well put to other, the stitching is even and well done, the cut outs are all well placed; one for each camera, one for the pen, as well as the attachment point for the tether, the three plugs at the bottom are accessible, as well the headphone jack at the bottom, and the two ports on the left ( pen) side, and the volume buttons are open as well. My only complaint is that the SD is inaccessible. The back folds easily to stand the unit up, and the front cover closes with a magnet.
Construction 10/10 (appears so, keep in mind it's just out of the box, no real world use yet)
Price 10/10 ($19.99USD) Customer Service 11/10

Is like the one I picked up. It is a Tucano satchel, but I don't know the exact exact model anymore. I think the tag said good for 11" items. Fits the TPT with the Folia case like a glove. It can also fit the charger and WD passport without much trouble, but is a lil tight for my comfort. I'm attempting to downsize the charger.
