First Look at the HP TouchPad Case [photos]

If you're been wanting to get a closer look at the case that's being sold as a unique accessory to go with the HP TouchPad (that is, if you've had enough time to drool over the TouchPad Unboxing we shared yesterday), then we have good news for you. One PreCentral Forum user, Gav Oracle, has had the opportunity to purchase and receive an HP TouchPad case through HP UK. Luckily for all of us, he's also taken a few photographs to go with his description, and we've got it all here in one spot to show you now.

Click through the break to read some details about the case (which is very similar to the iPad case that was released a few months ago) and take a look at those photographs. When you're done, you can pre-order the case (and the TouchPad) through or a number of online retailers. But keep checking back here for more HP TouchPad news and reviews, though. They're bound to keep coming in as fast as we can read through them.

To quote from Gav Oracle:

- I like the rubbery, secure feel to it.
- It (and the tablet obviously) is smaller than I was expecting it to be but a little thicker perhaps. But I think it's going to feel great in the hand because of this.
- It's more square than I anticipated.
- The fold around cover that turns into a stand in two positions works well but could be a little unstable (although this is probably due to there being only a piece of foam in it not a proper TouchPad.
- The packing slip describes it as a "Case Topaz"
