Asus tweets "we've got things covered", teasing Nexus 7 tablet covers in flashy colors

Asus tweets
What's a tablet maker to do these days, when El Goog announces it has chosen its manufacturing prowess to create its first Nexus tablet posterkid for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean?

Why, do some covers, of course. It is already making a margin on the slates that Google sells at cost, starting at $199, so why not throw in some margin on accompanying accessories for a good measure.

Asus announced a number of covers for the Google Nexus 7 on Twitter, because that's what you do nowadays, instead of using that old people's social network Facebook, and the covers are all over the rainbow span when it comes to coloring.

Considering the $200 tablet tag these might mostly serve to tell one slate from another in the family, rather than some coveted protection, but no price is announced yet. The catchphrase Asus used? "We've got things covered".

rephrasing your comment:

It would be awesome if they have surface tablet covers.

not completely necessarily we saw Logitech perform two cases for both android devices and iPad with s concept similar to the surface, plus MS was said to be taking cues from all their partners in order to get the surface done

Hopefully, the cover won't be "legendary" like the smart cover and actually cost a reasonable price... aka less than $40!

The gray cover in the market is listed at $19.99 and looks just like the ones shown in this article.

I never understood the use of a SmartCover.... It really doesn't protect the device and it costs $40....

.. oh yeah.. It's made by Apple.

It protects the screen and it's very light. I like it and wish they made one for my GT10.1....

oh look there are also cases with the galaxy s2

for the record there is a reason for this colors, basic color designs (such as the ones you see) are much easy to produce unlike complex color mixtures. plus they are quite popular
