I just had a chance to lay my hands on what has become one of my favorite Xoom Accessories to date, the Motorola Xoom Bluetooth Keyboard Leather Folio Case (Bulk packaged). From my very first impressions opening the box I knew that Motorola had finally done something right. At roughly $100 I fully expected and was very pleased that this Accessory delivered value and then some for that price.
The first thing that I noticed when I anxiously opened the folio case was the distinct smell of real high-quality leather. This was such a welcomed surprise as I have become used to the pleather or vinyl cases and materials that are so commonly used to imitate the real deal. The quality of the leather and grain was accented by rock solid stitching that created a very high-end feel. This is the first Xoom Accessory that I have really enjoyed opening and almost felt like a high-end wallet or watch that you would look forward to as a gift.
The Bluetooth Folio case comes with a slightly smaller keyboard than the standalone Bluetooth Motorola Xoom keyboard, almost exactly matching the dimensions of the Xoom itself. Even with this slightly smaller profile, I found that the keyboard did not feel awkward at all and had a slight concave feel that really helped me type with ease.
There is a very smart design to the built-in kickstand strap component of this case. The kickstand felt very secure and left the Xoom at the perfect viewing angle, while there was no sense of the unit tipping over backwards like I had seen in many other case/keyboard combos on the market. To achieve this solid stature, the heavy-duty leather strap is securely stitched into the leather and two burly snaps can be used to adjust the perfect viewing angle.
The fit of this Xoom Accessory is very snug at first but is exactly the right fit for the Xoom. With each additional use, the leather case seems to mold just a bit better to the shape of the device as it becomes conditioned correctly. The leather case itself is as I mentioned a very high quality and does not have any problem scratching or getting scuffed easily.
In conclusion, I think that this is the case/keyboard combination that I have been looking for through all of the available Xoom Accessories that are currently on the market. I have already used this combination very effectively in place of hauling around my much heavier laptop for quick appointments or coffee shop work. If you have been feeling a little left out from our Ipad brethren with all of the high-end luxe cases that are available, this will definitely give you that touch of elegance and sophistication that only a high-end accessory like this can do.
