Nexus 9 keyboard folio and Magic Cover cases go up for pre-order on Amazon

You’ve already pre-ordered your Nexus 9, so why not pre-order the accessories to go with it? Amazon is now listing the keyboard folio case for the tablet that we’ve seen so much of. It’s a little on the pricey side at $129.99, but considering it’s a fully mechanical keyboard, has wireless pairing and looks to be built quite well (it attaches itself to the Nexus 9 using magnets) we imagine it might be well worth it for some of you. The case promises to live for 5 months on a single charge so you won’t have to hook it up to the wall very often. The case also folds to two different angles.

The cheaper case option is the $39.99 Magic Cover, a magnetic slab that can go on the front or rear of the device. It, too, uses magnets, and features smart cover features for automatically waking the display when removed from the front, or automatically launching the camera when the flap covering the camera sensor is removed when attached to the rear. The case folds at 5 different points — one at each corner and straight through the middle — to give you two different viewing angles and to provide for a sturdy prop whenever you are watching video or typing.

The keyboard folio case comes in your standard black, while the Magic Cover can be had in black, coral amethyst, lime stone, and mint indigo. Both are set to ship November 3rd, which is about the same time Nexus 9 units are expected to leave warehouses for those who’ve pre0rdered one. Head to the Amazon links below to order if you’re interested.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. While you’re on Amazon, check out the cheaper options. I’ve found a similar case for $5 on there.

  2. I don’t know how I feel about the cover only being a cover that doesn’t attach to the side/back as well and just fold around. Seems like I’d lose it with it completely detaching and moving it around from front to back etc. At the very least I’ll probably drop it a lot which is annoying. Definitely think I’ll be going with a 3rd party option for a typical case with a back and front flap.

  3. I think the Lime Stone color looks nice with the white Nexus 9 :)

  4. Samsung should have partnered with someone to make something like this for the Tab Pro line. I covet that setup.

  5. My wallet cringed

  6. Being a mechanical keyboard does make it sound a little better. I might get this magic cover and the logitech K480 and save myself $40.
