We just purchased the HP 1800 model 7 inch tablet that Walmart had on sale Black Friday. We are not having any luck finding a protective case for it. The cases we have found specifically state that they do not fit the 1800 model. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you!

Hi and welcome to the HP Support Community.
Check out the suggestions in this very recent thread for a case/cover for your Slate 7.
Personally, I really like the HP cover which is on sale in the HP store.

which hp store?--when we clicked on the hp store there were 6 pages of technical offerings; we just want a tablet cover for our 9-yr old granddaughter's hp model 1800 tablet. U'd think we were trying to crack the Pentagon.

Every Hp Slate case I have seen says it is not for the HP 1800 7 inch tablet. So is the tablet listed in your post compatible with the 1800 then? It doesn't say specifically one way or the other. Thank you

From what I've seen, the HP 7 1800 tablet has the forward camers located in the center of the top frame. All "Slate covers are showing the camera cutout shown on one of the shorter side frames (usually left). I don't think a case is offered just yet. Only thing I can suggest is either a generic case (with elastic straps on corners) or a sleeve. That's what I'm doing for one I bought for my grandson.
P.S. If you do locate a correct case, please post here for others. We are all asking for a case that fits.

Louis, U're correct about the camera placement on the HP 1800 (bought one for granddaughtr Xmas.)
I work in Wal-Mart Electronics & Fri or Sat will look at generic 7" tablet covers--I know we have them. Maybe my fellow associates can figure somethin' out.
Will let U know if and what we find

So we just bought a generic case at Shopko, it was on sale for $9.99. It has the elastic straps that fit over the corners and will be fine for the tablets. We actually took the tablet into the store and made sure it fit and would work.
