The Nexus 7 tablet already seems bound to be a success, perhaps one of the most successful Android tablets to date when it drops later this month. ASUS, for their part wants you to know that they will have a set of colorful covers to help protect and beautify your Nexus 7 tablet. Unfortunately, ASUS isn’t providing any pricing or availability details, but we expect it won’t be to long after the tablet itself is available that we’ll see these up for sale. In a way, these remind me of Apple’s iPad covers and that’s a good thing, I see those everywhere. It would be nice to see the Nexus 7 tablet everywhere.
For me the iPad was just too slippery to hold in one hand without a case, even my kids Kindle Fire's were slippery without some sort of case with rough texture so it holds a firm grip. A small 7" tablet if you have hands that sweat really needs something to grip. Trust me, after time most people would prefer a case with some grip versus using the tablet without a case, especially the cases with stands built in and others that allow you to hold it one handed.
These types of covers have always made very little sense to me. This is designed so that the device will always be in the case right? Judging by the cut port holes... To me, the beaty of the nexus 7 design is how it feels in your hand. The backing and the size is perfect to hold. Why complicate an elegant design with a case that's designed for you to keep it in at all times? A nice slip case will be perfect
These were announced at I/O and are already available on Google Play for $19.99. Come on guys WAKE UP!
Tom Shildren Only 'dark grey' is available at the google play store. Also, I'm looking for a cover with a kickstand of some sort. Somebody let me know when they find a quality cover with a kickstand... I don't really see the point of these ones
