Really? I agree that it is definitely sexy, but from the photos it seems
it doesn't even cover the front bezel.

Again, someone on itt forums said that it's impossible that the extra
magnets will keep the n800 in place, otherwise it'd make a perfect way
to fix the tablet in my car somewhere on the dashboard, with no ugly
holder in sight. So, do they work or not?

It seems way overpriced to me, but if the magnets really worked in the
car it could justify the price (but only because the leather cases you
see on ebay, that cost less than one third of the official case, are
ugly as hell).
