Top 10 Nexus 7 Cases

Advertisements


The hottest new tablet around is the Nexus 7, powered by Google’s Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and built by Asus, and while not it’s not super susceptible to damage from the typical drop, it has been known to stain pretty badly on it’s soft-touch backing. So after purchasing your new 7-inch Tegra 3 toy, take a look at these great cases to keep it nice and pretty.

The list compares protection, usability, productivity, and style of the case, and it will include variability in color, a link to the site you can pick one up from, as well as pricing.

Let us know which case you’re going to pick up and why.

10. Timbuk2 Plush Sleeve

This is a very simplistic case that’s more for transport protection while in a bag rather than usability. The memory foam inside is great for keeping your Nexus clean and protecting it at the same time. The sleeve stays closed via Velcro and is TSA approved, so it can stay in the case while going through security before your next flight.

9. Official Nexus 7 Cover

The official Nexus 7 is also built by Asus and it definitely not the most stylish case out there. However, it is functional, as it surround the back and sides with a flap to cover the screen when needed. It has a soft matte-finish, which is quite a step back from the leather-like feeling of the back without a case. It has yet to be release but there are rumors a Smart cover type use after magnets were discovered in the bezel of the Nexus 7.
