British gadget site Mobile Fun has some fantastic stuff for us to drool over today. After seeing some premium Nexus 7 accessories just a couple days ago, these new leaked photos show us even more Nexus 7 accessories including (brace yourself) a rotating stand case. In case those words don't make sense to your brain when placed together, here's how it works: it's a protective case that can turn into either a landscape or portrait stand. This is kind of awesome.

Is that not enough for you? Well, there's plenty more where that came from. If you prefer to use your Nexus 7 solely in landscape mode (we'll just assume you're not using the stock interface; to each his own), there will be a landscape-only case/stand along the same vein as one for the Xoom. A simple portfolio case sans any type of stand will also make an appearance on virtual store shelves.

For the more productivity-minded among you, there will also be an official Bluetooth keyboard case. We have to question the utility of a 7" physical keyboard, though stranger things have happened we suppose. Also, as expected, protective screen covers will be sold.

All in all, the Nexus 7 accessory line up is starting to look pretty fantastic. It might have been nicer to see some of these accessories become available before the tablet itself started shipping. Or before other, less nice accessories also started shipping. Still, better late than never, right?

    These are pretty cool, but I hope the case itself is not super thick. One of the things I don't really like about the fire cases is that many have the "executive leather" look to them that I just don't find super attractive on a tablet.

      I picked up one of the folio cases on Amazon for 10 bucks, but I am also waiting for something to come out that doesn't have the leather cover. Give me some nylon, or some other synthetic cover, please.

    The one case/stand reminds me of the Kindle Fire case/stand combo.

  • residentGeekUK

    Check on Amazon! These are already available at under 1/4 of the price!

    Um, just because a salesman says it's "Official" doesn't make it so.

  • Wayne Randall

    Just like others are saying, this stuff has been on Amazon for quite a while and for considerably less money.

    These are all fine and dandy and all, but what about a case that allows us to really take advantage of the true portability of Nexus 7 over other larger Tablets? Here's a suggestion from a friend who's already made his own minimalistic design of a underarm shoulder holster (like a concealed weapon).

    It's set at an ideal angle for quick secure access on the go w/ a pull tab to aide retrieval. He has a thin magnet inside corresponding to the screen magnet sensor on Nexus 7. He can uses jogging without interference that comes from a waist pouch or case and eliminates hand carrying it everywhere.

    Below the Nexus 7 he has a slot for a simple stand that has this ingenious pistol grip and swivel, using a clamp (in either Landscape or Portrait mode) that can also aide in removal from the shoulder holster. Yeah.... like a gun, but for girls it could easily be a hairbrush handle! lol....

    Even without the "iHandled iT w/ a Gun" stand this is great. So much so everybody wants one of these leather shoulder holster that could also be made out of wet suit material to lower the costs. He can even wear it under his jacket or even a button front shirt. Then he just unbuttons one button and reaches in to pull it out when he needs or wants to! .....this would be a must have accessory if Google designed it right. Without a bunch of gobblety gook fancy buttons or cluttered up with snaps and other needless garbage like these wantabee pieces of trash:

    Now I'm just hoping he'll find time to make one for ME! :D
