So, you have a brand new Google Nexus 7 tablet, but not many official accessories to go along with it since Asus and Google have been slow to launch them. Fortunately, United Kingdom retailer Mobile Fun announced in a blog post several new accessories that should launch very soon. Just a couple of days ago, we saw a media dock and two cases leak online, but today we have several more cases and a screen protector to discuss.
First, we have a Rotating Stand Case for the Nexus 7 that can hold the device in portrait or landscape mode depending on your personal preference. Keeping it in portrait mode would be good for video communication, while landscape mode is best for gaming and watching videos.
The second accessory is an official Stand Case, which simply holds the Nexus 7 in landscape the entire time. I imagine the Stand Case would cost less than the rotating case, and will appeal to those who are fine with keeping it in one orientation.
Third, we have the common Folio case, which allows you to slide the Nexus 7 into the leather bound case and it opens to reveal the screen. Since the Nexus 7 contains a magnetic sensor, opening the Folio cover will unlock the device, while closing the cover simply locks the device. In addition, it doubles as a stand to hold the Nexus 7 in landscape mode.
Fourth, we have a Bluetooth keyboard case which houses an integrated Bluetooth keyboard that syncs wirelessly to the tablet and allows for fast paced typing. If you plan on using your tablet for emails, notes, and writing, then having a Bluetooth keyboard is a good investment.
Lastly, we have a simple screen protector that helps protect against scratches and smudges. The screen protector is probably the cheapest accessory available for the Nexus 7 and will help preserve the beautiful screen.
I imagine these accessories and possibly more will launch in the Google Play Store soon enough, especially since a UK retailer already blogged about it.
