Nexus 9 case roundup

FYY premium Nexus 9 case

Keep that Nexus 9 covered

When a new Android tablet like the Nexus 9 arrives, third-party cases soon follow. The folks at our store are working out exactly what we're going to carry for the Nexus 9, but we know two things about early adopters who already have their Nexus 9 in their hands — nobody likes to wait, and we all want something to cover and protect our new (and expensive) tablet.

Both the official Magic Case and Keyboard Folio are really nice cases, but we know they won't be perfect for everyone. I spent the last week or so digging through Amazon and trying out a slew of third-party cases. We've put together a list of the "best of the best" for you to have a look through while you are waiting. The list of available accessories keeps growing every day, so I'm not done here. But this is a great start and chances are you'll see something that would work well for you.

A quick look at the Nexus 9 Magic Cover

Nexus 9 Magic Cover

$39 gets you a capable, easy-to-use cover for your Nexus 9

Here we have a quick look at the retail version of the Magic Cover for the Nexus 9 tablet. And fortunately a quick look is all we need to tell you that this is a capable, easy-to-use cover. We've had origami-type covers leave us frustrated in the past, but that fear quickly subsided with the Magic Cover.

One side is polyurethane and is meant to face outward, with the inward-facing side a softer suede-like material. Don't be surprised if you find yourself forgetting which is which though. (Hint: the "nexus HTC" logo goes on the inside.) Magnets keep everything in place when the cover's flat on the front or back of the tablet, though we are a little curious how it holds up to be jostled around inside a gear bag. They're strong, but they're not that strong.
