Nexus 7 folio case now available in Black and Bright Red for $50

nexus 7 folio case

Google’s giving folks a lot of different reasons to spend a lot of money today. After not one, but two, Google Play edition devices were added, we saw Google add a white Nexus 7 to the Google Play Store. Now, they’re offering up a brand new accessory for said Nexus 7.

You can grab the folio case from Google Play in Black and Bright Red for $50. There’s no need to tell us the case is a bit pricey, but the looks of it in the official renders sure do make it look nice. The case will protect the sides of the device, giving you a bit of raise on the front and rear to protect it from shattering on impact.

We’d call it a nice mix between a traditional bumper case and a versatile stand, giving you the ability to prop the tablet up at three different angles to provide optimum viewing angles. Google didn’t mention whether the case would feature a magnetic sensor for automatically waking and locking the device, but I suppose we’ll just have to wait until these are out in the open to find out. Get the black version here, and the bright red one here.

    This is all great, but when are they going to update the 10″ model? Dernit, I’m in need of a new 10″ tablet and have been waiting until the new Nexus model comes out.

    The UK finally get the wireless charger for £35.

    As for the Folio, this says it has the wake up feature: “With the convenient wake-up feature, Nexus 7 wakes and sleeps when you open and close the cover”

    On the description of the Folio case: “With the convenient wake-up feature, Nexus 7 wakes and sleeps when you open and close the cover.”

      My $15 black leather Supcase from Amazon does that. Not sure I am seeing $50 of value here.
