Google Launches Hard-Cases for the Nexus 7 2013 Starting at $50

October 8, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

There are already plenty of colors available for the Nexus 7 2013. But how about some official ones from ASUS and Google? There was  a slip case that was launched with the Nexus 7 this year, but it really didn’t look that nice, at least not in my opinion. These are the official hard-cases for Google’s Nexus 7. They are now available on the Google Play store, and are available for $50. So they definitely aren’t cheap. There are plenty of color combinations available though.


There’s a white and red case as well as gray and blue, and gray and red. Each with a neat woven texture. The combinations do look pretty nice in my opinion. All of these cases also have built-in stand functionality, which is great for when you want to watch a movie on your Nexus 7, since that’s primarily what I do with mine. These cases all also have subtle Google branding, whether you like the branding or not, it’s there.


These cases can be shipped in 5-10 days for just $3.99 in addition to the $49.99 you’re already paying for these cases. Of course, it won’t be shipping until October 9th, which is tomorrow, so that’s not a huge deal. At least not in my opinion. There is also a faster 3-5 day shipping option which is $7.99, and 2-day shipping is $11.99. While these cases do look pretty nice, I still think they are a bit pricey even before shipping. And this is coming from a guy that loves DODOcases. I already own a couple of DODOcases for the Nexus 7 2013, and I really like them, judging by the pictures of these cases, I think that DODOcase and Portenzo make better quality cases for about the same price. so take your pick.

These are all available from Google Play now, so head on over there and check them out.
