When you buy a new device, that's only the beginning. You also have to buy stuff for it. If you're searching for a case to protect your new Nexus 7, Amazon has a number of good deals. Updated versions of several cases from rooCASE are about to ship, and they'll only cost you a few bucks.

These cases got excellent reviews for the 1st generation N7, so they ought to work well with the updated model too. There are 4 different cases available for the super-low price, plus one that's more expensive (the Executive). The ones on sale are the Dual-Station, Dual-View, Oragami, and Slim-Fit. There are a ton of colors, but only the black one can be ordered for the low price.

All the cases have built-in stands, like the Poetic Slimline from the other day. But rooCASE also includes a handy stylus/pen combo. Each of the four cheap cases sells for about $1, and costs $3-5 to ship. Not a bad deal. The different styles have ship dates throughout August, but you can order now.

    I have the RooCase Ultra-Slim case for my 2012 Nexus 7, and really like it. There's a dearth of high-quality cases for the Nexus 7 but this one fit the bill for me.

      I picked up the Poetic Slimline for my wife's N7, and she's really happy with hers. The Slimline doesn't come with pen loop, though. I ended up buying a stick-on pen loop from Leuchtturn, though, and it works pretty well.

        I order a Poetic Slimline it's pretty good, I was planning on buying The roo Dual view to compare but they seem to charge way too much for shipping to Puerto Rico (a USA territory) as for Poetic who Offers Free or the same costs a Con US.

      Hi Andrew. Do you feel your ultra slim case provides decent protection in the case of a fall? I'm trying to decide between that one or one of the thicker ones that swivel and function as stands for my new N7.

      • Andrew Richards

        Not as much as a rubberized case, but decent enough, i think.

    Do you have a direct link or item #? I'm searching Amazon and I don't see this anywhere.
