Some kind of rugged case or do we just get the google case?
I would imagine. It took forever for them to release it for the Flyer (if they ever did), but devices that are really popular, there should be one.
I hope Seidio releases a case, and I hope it even includes a kickstand! I got the Seidio Extended Active Combo case for my Thunderbolt, and it has a plastic kickstand that is nowhere near as good as the metal one, but it gets the job done.
Also I just recently ordered the Seidio Active Extended case for my dad's Galaxy Nexus, and it includes a metal kickstand and it just arrived today, it's pretty nice.
I want a genuine leather folio. Not any of this pleather stuff. That's the only thing that I envy about iPhone users. They have EVERYTHING. Carbon fiber, real leather, even freaking bamboo! I wish I had a bamboo case for my evo
thos asus cases look nice
yeah they do. I think I'm gonna keep mine naked though. It's not like I'm gonna travel with the thing frequently. And the backing already seems pretty grippy
Not to mention some of those 3D printed cases with the really cool designs. I want one of those.
Like the idea of a case with a kickstand. Hopefully they can make one that's not too bulky.
Slap a Seidio Active case on it with an XO Skin and it'd look pretty badass in my opinion. And you could go anywhere with it - boat, beach, pool, etc. That's my plan.
Edit because I can't wait for my N7 to arrive: Camping, tailgating. Even take it into a game and tether to my Nexus - stream my HD Slingbox to keep up with another game. It'd still be small enough to tuck in a coat pocket and would disappear in a backpack.
Based on what I've seen happen in the past, Nexus 7 accessories will appear quickly and in diversity relative to its popularity in sales.
I haven't seen any articles crowing about pre-order numbers yet, I just know I ordered my 7 on 7/7!
I opted in for the availability email on the Google case.
I found this cool one at Wal-Mart
Some KaysCase products I'm interested in:
Amazon.com: KaysCase SlimBook Leather Case Cover for Google Nexus 7 inch Tablet Auto Sleep/Wake with Built-in Stand (Black): Electronics
(6 colors available)
The 2 piece detachable case looks good too, and has more functions, but I went with the SlimBook because it's slimmer.
KaysCase 2-Piece Detachable Multi-Angle View Cover Case for Google Nexus 7 - YouTube
it is but kindle foire cases fit the n7
I posted this in another thread, but I've pre-ordered this case from rooCASE just because I like the quality of their stuff:
Amazon.com: rooCASE Dual-View Multi Angle (Black) Leather Folio Case Cover for Google Nexus 7 Tablet: Electronics
EDIT: looks like this one has an integrated "smart wake" magnet as well!
If I get a case, it will most certainly have to have a cut-out in back for the speaker.
Kindle Fire's have speakers on the bottom edge, so cases intended for the Fire would not be very good options IMO
I like this case. It looks like all the ports are open, cut out for the camera and holes in the back for the speaker.
It looks like a whole lot of cases just hit Amazon recently. Some are even sold as packages with screen protectors and chargers.
We're still looking into options but recommend that you send an e-mail to email@example.com to request specific products!
Thanks for the feedback on the kickstand! We're still looking into options but recommend that you send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to request specific products!
I'm a fan of rooCASE. I've posted all over about how well the case on my Iconia A500 had held up.
In this economy there must be some healthy background buzz going on about this tab for there to be such a fast response by accessory makers.
I see it as a positive.
True i usually hate increasing the form factor of my gadgets.
But cell phones typically have Gorilla Glass, and cell phones are also a bit more death-gripable then tablets.
But since the nexus 7 only has Corning "scratch resistant" glass...you may want to shop around a little and consider some sort of protection.
10 to 20 bucks could save you from a smashed screen.
Just a thought
Whoa is it really only $15 shipped from Amazon? And does the folding cover/stand piece detach from the actual case part?
That's pretty cool. I want one.
EDIT: this is the one I found when I searched Amazon. Much cheaper for some reason
I sent a message to cruzerlite asking about an androidified tpu. Email them if you want one too.
I just ordered this one - Amazon.com: KaysCase Two Piece Detachable Multiple Angle View Leather Case Cover for Google Nexus 7 inch Tablet Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (Purple): Electronics
I just ordered this one, $13.20 shipped: http://www.amazon.com/YooMee-Amazon-Android-Leather-Multi-Angle/dp/B007V9O2FC/ref=?ie=UTF8&m=A1ULPX6MZIVYW9
It's for the Kindle and reportedly doesn't cover any ports or controls. source
There are other colors too: Amazon.com At a Glance: YooMee
Now if I hadn't cancelled my first order (just 16 gb N7) to reorder (16 gb + case), I'd be a bit richer.
I cant figure out why the cases from asus aren't available from day one.
