    portfolio case issues

    I was in the store to get my accessories and trying out the portfolio case. The main issue is you cannot charge it and have it setting in the stand mode. you can flip it over in the case but you will be unable to access the power button. Which by the way is a bad spot to put the way to wake up the device.

    I let the bottom of case drape over the rear of the docking stage. Not real pretty but it works.

    Yeah, it's a piece of crap. Will keep my eyes open for something better. Wish I'd known before I bought the case.

    I really like the portfolio case so far. It appears to give great overall protection and it covers the screen which I like because I don't use screen protectors. I think the stand implementation is about perfect. In portrait orientation and folded around to the left it offers a book or magazine-like look/feel. I think its great except I can't charge it with the case on. Soooo, I'm simply going to cut/drill/trim [whatever it takes for a clean hole] to allow for the charger. I don't mind 'finishing' it myself but I understand why others would.

    It is made for the CASE not the PORTFOLIO

    I actually like the portfolio no scratching issues and I have taken it out 3-4 times messing around with it.

    Does anyone know if the "protective gel case" that Motorola is including (if bought from them via Amazon) will fit in the Portfolio case or is the case unusable if this protective sleeve is on the Xoom?

    The silicone case will not fit inside porfolio case.

    In the motorola info videos it shows the adapter for dock being used with the silicone case.

    I have already used a leather hole punch for charge port.

    Anybody else disappointed in the plug? I know I'm going to break it.

    Yes, the plug does feel flimsy, and it doesn't seat very well into the jack on the Xoom. How did it work out punching a hole for the plug? I thought of that, but as wobbly as the plug is I thought it might not get a good connection if having to fit through the case, unless you put a pretty big hole in it large enough for the entire plug-end to fit through. I won't be punching any holes. Not being able to charge with the case closed, though, is the only negative I have with it. Haven't noticed any of the other problems I've seen mentioned.

    Nice big hole the same size as the outside diameter of the plug took me a few tries to get it centered and you have to make sure the xoom is snapped in all the wat but it makes the connection feel a little more secure than just that little pin.
