    Thanks for your requests, @blackjaguar25 and @LoBatt. We should be producing the ACTIVE for the Nexus 7. I'll post more details when I receive them!

    I received mine last week. Love it other than what you noted. The same day it came they sent me an email (below, horrible grammar left intact!) saying that a replacement was on the way. Did you get that email?

    The YouMee posted above looks identical as far as I can tell.

    ============
    Dear Valuable Customers,

    Thank you for purchasing Poetic HardBack Protective Case for the Google Nexus 7 Android Tablet by Asus. We have found there is slight problem on the case. The magnet inside the case is too strong to make case sleep while fold back the cover and hold like a book. Sorry about nothing seeing this problem while designing this product. Please keep the original one as backup, you don’t need to ship back to us. We are managed to provide a free replacement update version case that correct this problem as Poetic stand behind of their products within 2-3 business days. We are shipping updated fixed version out within 2-3 business days. You will definitely receive the update fixed version by the end of next week (August 3th). Please give us a chance and wait until update version products before give out product comment on this product.

    Best Regards to all that support Poetic, we will continue provide more innovative products for Google Nexus 7 device before anyone else.


    Regards,

    Customer Service

    Couple of pics of the pouch I bought. I'm pretty pleased with it, the nexus fits perfectly, the inside is very a soft microfibre like material. The pouch itself had quite a bit of padding to it which is kinda like memory foam, if you push your finger in to it you make an impression in it that disappears when you let go, I think it will protect the tablet really well. for

    Am I the only owner in the UK to be P*** at the poor selection of cases available here. Have got one on order from Amazon UK but its a compromise, may have to get one of my american friends to send me one (like the look of the Moko)

    My slim fit case will be here tomorrow along with my replacement N7. BSCstore has refunded the purchase and shipping on the case so I get it free. What a great company!

    I see a few people at Amazon have gotten the new case and reviewed it and seem to love it. One person said there's a problem I've read with a couple other cases. The sleep function works but when you fold the cover behind it also puts it to sleep.

    I actually got this one for the BB playbook from staples. On sail 5.99, originally going for 39.95.

    Amazon.com: Targus Truss Case/Stand for BlackBerry PlayBook 4G + WiFi THZ05102US (Black/Black): Electronics

    The two corners have a good point and bad point. Bottom corner covers the headphone jack. Easily fixed, used a one hole paper punch to put a hole there that the headphones go through into the Nexus 7. The other covers the power button, but I sort of like that because it won't get pushed accidentally. Have to slide my finger underneath to turn my tab on or power it on, and use a widget to turn it off/ put it to sleep immediately.

    Anyway this fits perfectly for something that was made for a different tab. and for $6 bucks, can't go wrong.

    Just received the following from Trident after my inquiry this morning:

    Hello,
    Unfortunately, we do not have plans of making a case for the Nexus 7
    but, I will be sure to pass along the suggestion to our design team.

    That sucks. I absolutely love the Trident Aegis cases I have for my Nook Color and LG Esteem.

    Hey all, hoping someone can help me, I'm looking for a case in the UK similar to the Moko Slim Case...the closest I have found so far is the one I have posted below, but it is a little expensive.

    Ordered from Amazon Google Nexus 7 Tablet Slim Fit Leather Case (Black) with Stand by Supcase should be delivered this week. Bought it for $9.99 but looks like Amazon has since raised the price to $10.99.

    Just got word from Amazon that my Youmee case has shipped.
    Looking forward to it.

    EDIT
    rooCASE never replied to any inquiries about my faulty case, but the Amazon seller PC Micro Store is shipping me a replacement gratis, and responded to my email within 2 MINUTES! Awesome service!
    END EDIT

    I was looking at that dock for the Nexus 7 and I'm not that impressed with it.
    You get the exact same action with a folding case and plugging in your charger, which I believe would have be used with the dock anyway if I'm not mistaken, and the dock won't work with cases so where is the advantage?

    With one exception.. With the ASUS dock, you can charge through the dock's rear MicroUSB and still use an OTG cable in the tablet's built-in MicroUSB port :)

    NO NO this case called Yoomee it isn't out yet well it will be on sale August 2. The other two brands Poetic and Moko have similar design and they both have magnetic problem.

    I did ordered yoomee because it does not have that problem well at least the seller on amazon said so..

    BCStore has stopped shipping the Moko cases until they get the new batch in from Moko on August 4th, because the new batch fixes that issue. If you're thinking about a Moko case, order it from them. They seem to really take the time to make sure you're getting what you expect for your money :)
