If thinking out loud is allowed...
If you move the battery  inside the keyboard part and make the hinge a bit 
bigger, you could use it as a screen protector if you fold the keyboard in 
front of the display.
And if you fold it the otherway, it could fit in what currently is the battery 
area.
Just my 2 cents..

Kind regards,
Ed
