    Yay! Mine arrived a couple of hours ago too. Think it might take a few more hours to become proficient at switching between the various angles, but liking it so far (makes the device much more lapable) - Wife has already told me to quit flipping that damn thing :)

    A little loose when folded without having a keyboard attached, but not a big issue for me.

    Did you get a notice that it had shipped, or did it just arrive -- I preordered as well, but haven't received an email that it had shipped.

    I got a shipping notification 4 days ago. I think this was the case for international backers. I believe that the latest update said that the ship date date for American backers is the 20th.

    Looks good, how well does it hold the surface in?
    I got a Manvex case for my SP2, bloody brilliant if you ask me. You can use it with or without the keyboard attached and it fits inside the case as opposed to using the hinge to hold the surface in. Its a little more bulky than this case but it protects it well.

    It holds in very well - the kickstand part is very well engineered (and I believe this was one reason the case was delayed, they wanted it to be a perfect fit).

    As the case folds are manipulated and held in place by magnets, without a keyboard there is a little gap, but it's unlikely I'll use it without the keyboard anyway.

    Just to confirm, the keyboard can't be folded back as well as the case at the same time, right?? Thanks & congrats!

    How much weight and bulk does it add. I tried the Maroo folio and it made everything feel bulky and heavy.

    When it is in either of the "desktop positions" you can use the rear camera as the case doesn't block it :)

    Well there is no getting around it adding bulk, it adds a cover on the front and back. However the way that is attaches to the Surface via the Kickstand is great, as when using the Surface you cannot even notice the case is on when looking from the front :D
