10 Covers and Cases for the Google Nexus 7 II (2nd Gen)

The new Google Nexus 7 tablet arrived ahead of schedule this week. I was able to pick one up from Best Buy (I’ll post a full review and video shortly) but they didn’t have any covers or cases available for the 2nd generation Nexus 7 yet, so I went searching online at Amazon and turned up more than I’d expected to find for a tablet that wasn’t officially supposed to be released until tomorrow.

There are already a bunch of different styles and brands, with various color choices. One of the covers costs as little as $3.95 with free shipping (the Poetic Slimbook). Many of the cases aren’t available until the first or second week of August, but a few are in stock now.

I ended up deciding to order the official Asus travel cover for the New Nexus 7 FHD. I somewhat regret that decision after finding a few more options this morning while putting together this article (the Moko and Kayscase covers look pretty nice and are inexpensive), but I like how thin and light the Asus cover is. One of the best things about the new Nexus 7 is how thin and light it is, so I didn’t want a bulky cover.

Note that there are different colors available for many of these covers shown below. Also some of the pictures show the old Nexus 7, but on the product description pages there’s an option to select the 2nd gen Nexus 7.

  1. I just received the Finte hard back case for my Samsung Galaxy 7 Plus this past Saturday and really like it. I like the stylus holder loop at the top of the case as it keeps the stylus out of the way. A couple of the other cases I have, have the loop either on the long side and it gets in the way of the buttons and/or lid clasp OR the loop is on the front of the case, which makes the case a little bulky if you want to set something on top of it. (I typically have my tablet, my Kindle, and my smart phone stacked on my nightstand overnight.)

    Anyhow, looking forward to your Nexus 7 review! The hubs has the previous version.

    • That looks like a nice solid cover with a lot of protection. I like how it has pegs along the side to hold it in instead of covering the front like some of the other cases.

  2. I have the MoKo case for my ASUS Transformer and it is fantastic. Awesome quality and have had it for a year.

    I’ve just purchased this one though for my new Nexus 7 (2nd Gen):

    Plenty of other models there too.

    Manufacturers are finally starting to come out with cases for this tablet.
