ASUS tweets upcoming covers to protect your Nexus 7

With the shipments of the Nexus 7 tablet almost upon us, I’m certain quite a few of you who pre-ordered the device have been looking around at how to protect your new toy. ASUS tweeted the image above, showcasing their offerings. There’s no information regarding pricing or availability.

Have any preference from the above? If I do end up buying the tablet, I’ll probably get the orange one.

    This image is old. The Play Store has had a better image for over a week now. And they will be going for $19.99. Where you been, Raveesh?

    • UniBroW

      Those are Grey only

      • Jillian

        Until they are available. It’s a placeholder for the time being.

    • billcollier

      I’ve got to have better than puke gray, give me blue.

    • Raveesh Bhalla

      I’m in India, and as such the only stuff I see on Play are apps. Plus, I checked up news items and couldn’t find any reference.

      Apologies if this was previously mentioned somewhere.

      • Jillian

        No apologies needed man. I was busting your balls. And living in India makes sense that you can’t see the Play Store page…

    • Mark Hennessey

      I don’t think the ones pictures above are the same as the one in the play store. The one in the store doesn’t appear to be a flip cover…

  • billcollier

    I know you will keep us posted.

  • BIGshane123456

    yeah, I wouldn’t mind black instead of gray.

  • tony shark

    This better not cost as much as the nexus 7!

  • No_Nickname90

    Oh my gosh!! Let me check eBay. I want a crazy cool hybrid case. I love hybrid cases.

    • DavidEssex

      Me too!


    Have ordered the nexus 7 via the play store but when tried to order the cover said it was not available in the United kingdom.

  • Mitchmoney

    I would watch out if I was Asus.. I think apple patent different color cases :-

    • TheJunkie

      I think Apple patented covers, period.

  • Dennis Dolphin

    Why you don’t get a build-in BT keyboard inside the cover? A must!

    • Androidandwp7equalsPower

      MS patented the case with keyboard design.

  • Giuseppe Muratori

    Orange or Pink are the manliest colours.

  • T-Keith

    Personally I don’t like flip covers. I was hoping the nexus 7 had a durable enough back that it wouldn’t need a case. Maybe just a screen protector.

  • droidbeat

    Ordered my grey cover with the Nexus 7 at the same time day 1.

  • Terrormaster

    Hope these will be available retail at launch. Would also like to see some sort of leather bookish like cover like the Nook and Fire have.

  • r1biker

    Why do so many companies have problems releasing the accessories at the same time as the device? Perfect upselling opportunity, add a case at the same time as you buy the Nexus 7, but no.

  • Fahim Yaqoob

    shit. i just pre ordered a case
