Says 3-5 weeks backordered. IMHO $100 is too much for it, that's like 30-40% of the cost of the tablet itself. I understand the convenience of it but I can't see myself purchasing it.

Amazon Japan product page has more images, but it's hard to see how the magic works. It apparently uses magnets. It was on Amazon Japan first and I had hoped that the Japanese price didn't reflect North America's...
Here's a video. Can't see the back still. Images make it seem like the thing (pen holder, I guess?) that the front cover folds back into protrudes from the back...

So I went ahead and ordered one since my original folio order was delayed another 2 weeks and the order page said the shipping time for the keyboard/case was "3-5 business days" instead of "3-5 weeks." However now the email I received from Dell says the expected delivery date is "Monday, December 30, 2013" , what gives? 5 business days is the 19th and I paid for 2-day shipping...

Here's the case I'm talking about that I really like: Amazon.com: IVSO Slim Smart Cover Case for Dell Venue 8 Pro (Windows 8.1) Tablet, Only fit DELL Venue 8 Pro windows 8.1 tablet (Black): Computers & Accessories
It's not a smart case as stated however, as the screen doesn't automatically come on when you open it up.

I was talking about the keyboard case. For example, IVSO's keyboard case and Slim Smart Cover Case for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 are totally different designs. If I decide that I don't really need a keyboard to carry along, I'll probably get a slim case from IVSO. And then maybe shell out for the Logitech K810 sometime down the road if I want to carry around a Bluetooth keyboard with me. I do have two wireless USB keyboards, but they're quite long to be portable. I use them if necessary, but then I lose access to the micro USB slot, should I need it for anything else.

I cancelled my order for the Dell BT keyboard/case. The reviews I've seen weren't very good and it has some odd key placement like the " being in a weird spot and activated via a function key.
I bought the IVSO case to use as a folio case and then bought a MS Wedge keyboard to use as a portable keyboard.
