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.

Two great (but very different) Galaxy Note 4 screen protector choices

42

You spent hard-earned money on the Galaxy Note 4, and particularly if you bought off-contract you're aware of the price of this device. If you're tough on devices they're bound to pick up scratches on the screen — mine already has two after a couple months use — but a screen protector can dramatically reduce the chances of that happening.

Nexus 9 Keyboard Folio review

19

Phil gave us a nice introduction to the Nexus 9 Keyboard Folio when a weary UPS delivery person dropped it off the day before Thanksgiving, but we wanted to revisit it after using it for a few days. It's the first accessory available for the Nexus 9, and with a hefty $130 price tag, we know that it's important to learn all you can learn before you plunk any money down.

iBOLT miniPro Window/Dash Kit review

14
Who's ready for a road trip?

This mount stays where you put it

I haven't used a window mount for my phone before. Mainly because the ones for my GPS units over the years have fallen down - a lot. But when the iBolt miniPro Dash Kit came up for review, I knew I should finally get over my fear of falling and try it. I've got a coverage plan for my phone for a reason, after all. That said, my fears seem to be unfounded. The iBolt miniPro has stayed bolted to the windshield without fail.
