As a first other half, apart from ideas regarding hardware qwerty etc, it would be nice to see an other half which simply has the additional gimmick of a flip-cover for the screen.

Exactly what I want too! Alternatively a flipcover that clips onto any standard other half.

That'd be the nicest solution, could be "clipped" between other half and phone at the bottom, locked by the screwholes for proper position... and would allow combinations...

something like apple's smart cover would be nice

What is a flip-cover?

I mean an other half with an attached Cover for the screen.

removed the stitching from the right and bottom ,side renoved fabric padding from the back side, cut away som leather for camera and flash, did som work on the edges to straighten them, glued toh to the back side. that's it

The sad thing is that you can't get it anymore with the brown other half , only with white other half,brown is sold out at the moment. http://www.allboutn9.info/2014/03/new-to-jolla-lastucase-family-leather.html#more

I already asked on September 13th via twitter: "@JollaHQ @noreve @Proporta ... anyone bothered supplying quality case makers with dummies to have pouches avail. along with our new jollas ?" ... nobody bothered to consider / reply sth. Then I asked Noreve again by email on January 3rd ... but no response to date. The only pouch-maker I know so far is www.fitbag.de -- they customized one for my jolla (measurements about the same as Sony Xperia ZL. A great alternative could be proporta's universal case : http://www.proporta.com/gecko-leather-smartphone-case-universal ... it won't destroy your other half, as you're actually sticking it onto the flip. Too, it has the functionality of flipping it away rearside for camera-use .... no need to (re-)punch hoiles ;-)

I just started to collect votes for a community lobby here: https://together.jolla.com/question/15086/community-lobby-for-decent-functional-jolla-cases-to-impress-quality-casemakers/

I won't initiate any votes on together.jolla any more. --> guys such as @eric or @jjaone keep constantly interfering as they consider they're the only ones knowing "what users expect to see" ....

.... so I bite the teeth to still participate here from time to time, as I consider sailfish / jolla as one of the most valuable & sustainable environment out there & I think it should become the best ....

launchpad ( 2014-01-19 14:32:46 +0300 )edit

.... it's better to keep on asking & posting ideas than contributing too little ... the maintenance & capabilities of this togetherness have to get improved though ...

@launchpad: if we're not able to unify the way user feedback is given there's no way it can be properly used or it makes everything way more difficult than it should to be shared with the engineering team. Sorry if you feel frustrated about this. The faq, help and how-to related topics to together usage are the recommended ways to give your feedback, thank you.

This type of cover seems to be the most common one around my part of the world. The cover could have different configurations: Book fold / notebook fold / top&botton fold

An exclusive leather other half would be nice to have on those dress-up occasions...

The design would introduce the possibility to add a flat keyboard to the lid of the protective cover. A similar product is available for pads (Logitech FabricSkin Keyboard Folio).
