    Poetic makes a couple great cases for the N7. The slimline is my favorite, the cover is similiar to the Apple smart cover and folds to make a stand. It also has a small magnet built into the cover which turns on the N7 when you flip it open.

    Cost wide they are under $10.00 at Amazon, plus they also have a 3 year warranty.

    Cases are a very individual thing, and dependant on what level of protection you are trying to achieve. Here's mine (below). It's not the ultimate in protection, but it does extend out front and rear, so will protect the phone from short drops. The metal bumper give it a whole 'nother look though, and because the buttons are CNC overlayed, not just cutouts exposing the device buttons, it is completely sealed from dust getting in there. The back is a replacement (real) carbon fiber back cover, not a cover. Here are the eBay links where I got mine. If you want the for the bumper and end up buying it somewhere else, be sure you get ones with button overlays. Otherwise the device buttons will be recessed and hard to reach.

    Oops! I own a Nexus 7 and a Galaxy S4. I accidentally posted the S4 in the wrong thread. :eek:

    Maybe something like a sleeve of some sort.

    P.S. the multi touch issues are driving me crazy. Typing this reply alone has been a living hell
