The trick to getting this case to fit snugly around your Xoom is to insert the left-hand side (with the volume controls) into the case first, then gradually raise the lips of the top and bottom of the gel case around the Xoom until you reach the other side. A little finesse on the corners will quickly avoid what I've come to call "undertuck" (where the lip tucks under around the corners), and before you know it... one snug fit around your beloved Xoom.
The case does indeed have a rubbery feel to it, which certainly improves the grip.
The elevation it provides between the camera lense and whatever surface you place your Xoom on can provide much-needed protection against scratches (which, of course, would diminish the picture quality)
Now for the part most people don't realize...
HOW TO FIT YOUR XOOM (WITH THE GEL CASE FITTED) INTO THE OFFICIAL DOCK
This really couldn't be more simple...
All you need to do is remove the interchangeable plastic plate (designed to allow you to choose a plate suited to your preferred tilt angle), and your Gel-case fitted Xoom will fit perfectly on the dock.
Obviously you should note that, with the plastic plate removed, the white dot indicating alignment with your Xoom is no longer available, so it does make alignment a little more tricky, but a small price to pay if you wish to dock it whilst in the case.
Of course, this case is remarkably easy to fit and remove, so it is not entirely necessary to want to dock with the case fitted.Read more ›
Well the first case has lasted a year, and has done its job well.
But after a years usage, the case has started to show signs of wear, BUT over the past year it has protected the Xoom 100% So in that light its excellent!
Obviously today, there are far superior Tablets you could get, BUT the XOOM holds its head amongst the crowd now, in many cases its possibly still better than the rest.
The case (or cover) is exactly as you would expect.
It wraps around the back of the Xoom perfectly, accounting for the slight curvature along the back of the tablet. All ports are accounted for, as well as the camera, speakers and power button. The volume controls are covered, but raised bumps along the edge of this cover allow you to easily locate and use them.
The overall feel of the case is a grippy rubber - exactly what you imagine when you think "Gel case", and feels really nice and solid in the hand.
My only downside for the case is that it's more of a dust magnet then the Xoom is with fingerprints. Leave it on the side for a few hours, and you could spend hours trying to get the dust off. Thankfully, all you need to do is take the case off, wipe it over with a wet cloth and the dust is gone in seconds; the texture also means it dries as quickly.
Overall this does everything you expect, performs very well and looks great; all at a great price. The case will do enough to prevent scratches and small bumps/drops, but I would suggest that if you're looking for something for traveling around with, then you would be better off looking at something which covers the whole tablet securely.
Well done Motorola!
In all it makes the device more comfortable to use as it rounds the sharp edges and it's grippy meaning it doesn't feel like the device is going to slip out of your hands. IMO Motorola should include one of these with every tablet surely they can affford to bundle a bit of plastic with a five hundred quid tablet!
Needs a good push to use the volume buttons because, as stated, the rubber is quite thick.
Agree with other reviewers that it could do with wrapping round a bit more, especially at the bottom where it tends to pull over the side a bit.
All in though, all very good value for money for a fiver. I'd buy it again, and that says it all I suppose...
