Google Nexus 7 to get even more official accessories: rotating case, Bluetooth keyboard case and more

August 1, 2012

You can’t buy them yet, but word on the street (in UK) is that there will be several new official accessories coming for the Google Nexus 7 slate. Sure, the dark grey cover that the Nexus 7 sports right now does its job in protecting the tablet and giving it a handsome look, but the more options you have the better, right?

The slew of new Asus-made accessories that will be available for the Nexus 7 include a leather rotating stand case, a leather stand case, a folio case, a Bluetooth keyboard case, and a screen protector. UK retailer Mobile Fun, which lists the accessories, will have them for sale soon.

The rotating stand, which will be offered for at £14.95 ($24), is a nifty one to get if you want to prop up the Nexus 7 – whether in landscape or portrait mode. The leather stand case is a more affordable option at £27.95 ($44), but it only supports landscape mode. The simple folio case, meanwhile, should be retailing for £39.99 ($62).

Those who use the Nexus 7 tablet as a workhorse will probably opt for the official Bluetooth keyboard case, which will be offered for £79.95 ($125). It comes with a spill and dust proof QWERTY keyboard and an integrated desk stand. Lastly, the screen protector – a must have for those who like to keep their screen scratch-free – will set you back £14.95 ($23).

The release date for the new official accessories hasn’t been confirmed yet, although you can pre-order them now. We’ll update you once they become available.

      They can’t possibly be… no one is going to pay 50% of the cost of the tablet itself for a keyboard case.
