Official accessories for your Nexus 7 include a rotating stand case
Earlier today, we saw a couple official covers and an official dock for the Google Nexus 7, and they looked pretty good, but now we're seeing 5 more official accessories from Asus so you can really dress up your new tablet in style. None of these accessories are available just yet, and we don't have any US pricing, just UK, but even so they all look pretty nice.
The new group of accessories include a few pretty standard items like an official screen protector, a folio case, and a stand case. But, there are also a couple of standouts like the "genuine" Bluetooth keyboard case, which as the name suggests is a case with a built-in Bluetooth keyboard. The odd thing about this listing is that it's the only one that isn't listed as "genuine", and on top of that, the description makes a mistake in saying the keyboard will "automatically connect to your iPad". So, that one may not have been originally intended for the Nexus 7.
Our favorite is probably the Rotating Stand Case, which is similar to the stand case, but obviously adds in the fun of being able to rotate your device between landscape and portrait mode. This is especially useful with the Nexus 7, since the homescreen doesn't rotate, and being able to have the tablet in portrait mode is pretty helpful.
The Rotating Stand Case is made of faux leather, and the pre-order has it at £27.95 (~$44)
The Bluetooth Keyboard Case is made of real leather, and has magnetic connectors. It claims 45 hours of use on a single charge, and claims to be dust and spill proof. Pre-order has it at £79.95 (~$125
The Folio Case is a simple case that has a built-in wallet. Pre-order is £39.99 (~$62)
The basic Stand Case doesn't have the fancy rotating mechanism, but that also means you'll have an awkward time on the Nexus 7 homescreen. Pre-order is £22.95 (~$36)
The official screen protector is a nice one. It is 100% dry mount, and claims to reduce fingerprints, which is pretty nice. It also claims to reduce scratches, but really how many of those is the Gorilla Glass picking up? Pre-order is £14.95 (~$23)
