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.
