When the Nexus 7 debuted in the Google Play Store back in July, there wasn’t very many official options for those looking to protect the device with a case. It was a few weeks after its launch, we finally saw an official Nexus 7 sleeve hit Google Play. But priced at $30 and little more than a fancy pouch to slip your tablet into, it didn’t exactly fit everyone’s needs.
Today, the official Nexus 7 case has hit the Google Play Store and we have to say, it looks pretty damn good. It’s a nicely designed flip-style case that comes in a variety of surface materials and colors for a cool $50. Options include the murdered-out black option or white (with red corner) in a faux leather finish, or a jersey cotton-ish grey with red or blue corners. Nothing too flashy and a very subtle “Google” logo can be found inside the flap.
Of course, the flip case does more than just protect your device, it can also prop up the Nexus 7 (2013) at 2 different angles: one for watching media/video conferencing, and another for comfortable typing. From the looks of it, the case doesn’t appear to add much bulk to the tiny tab. Keep in mind that there are similar options available on Amazon for a fraction of the price, like this Poetic flip case with sleep functions for $15. But if you’re the type that likes “all OEM everything”, then hit the link below to pick up the new Nexus 7 case on Google Play.
