The previously-leaked Nexus 7 POGO dock and premium case are set to be joined by a few more official accessories before long. UK retailer MobileFun has revealed five new accessories for ASUS and Google's Nexus 7 tablet in a blog post today, including a host of cases that also double up as stands for the device.

The line-up of Google-sanctioned, ASUS-manufactured accessories includes --

  • ​Nexus 7 Stand Case: A case that's also a stand. Slide the rear of the stand backwards to prop up the tablet in landscape orientation.  
  • ​Nexus 7 Rotating Stand Case:  As above, but with the ability to rotate to portrait orientation too.  
  • ​Nexus 7 Folio Case: A leather case for the Nexus 7 with a magnet for tripping the tablet's built-in magnetic sensor. This means it can toggle the screen depending on whether the case is open or closed.  
  • ​Nexus 7 Bluetooth Keyboard Case: ​Similar to the vanilla stand case, but with a full Bluetooth QWERTY keyboard on the inside cover.  
  • ​Nexus 7 Screen Protector: It's a screen protector for the Nexus 7. Go figure.

There's no word on when these accessories will become available for purchase, but at least we have confirmation now that they are indeed on the way. Any of these jump out at you? Hit the comments and let us know which you like best.

We've got more pics after the break.

I'm curious how the rotating mechanism for the rotating stand case works.
If it's not janky in any way, I might pick that one up.

What I still don't get is why they wait so long to release accessories for these devices. Do they not understand that consumers are more likely to buy accessories when they initially purchase the device than if they wait a month?

The people that have their device for a month and don't have a case will feel it's not necessary since they have done without it to that point. Or they already spent their money on a non oem accessory.

Logic says it is because accessories suppliers either don't get the pre-release details needed to make the accessories (like phone size, port placement, etc.

Paranoia blames it on the notion no accessories company wants to spend money a phone that may be banned for sale or not sell at all.

However, I agree it is very annoying and self-defeating. I already have a selection of cases for my Android toys.

I can see Microsoft getting very unhappy about this....hope there's not a patent to any of this cack, could do without this patent drama....-_-

There's already a rotating stand case on Amazon... I doubt these are first party accessories anyway. There's also cases w/magnets already available on Amazon, including some stand cases.

I'm sure I'll sound like I'm nitpicking just a lil here, but am I the only one that is just slightly disappointed/annoyed/perplexed by the amount of bezel on the N7? I'm really tempted to snag one as my first tablet purchase, but every time I look at it I can't help but notice how the actual screen size seems disproportionately small compared to the overall device size. I realize you're going to have some bezel just based on screen tech it what have you, but am I crazy here?

I realize you're going to have some bezel just based on screen tech and what have you, but am I crazy here?

I thought that before I got mine, but with it in hand its never bothered me or has been an issue... it comes off as a very nice looking device.

The bezel really isn't as big as you think and the 7" screen feels bigger and more perfect for a tablet than you think. The bezel is just the right size to comfortably hold the tablet without touching the screen accidentally. I was worried it would feel too small for a tablet but I was pleasantly surprised how great a 7" screen is :)

If the screen went to the edge, when you hold it, it will think you are swiping/touching the corner of the screen. You need a little bit of space to hold the device without activating the touchscreen.

errrr... about the keyboard case. i thought the homescreen doesn't go into landscape mode (unless you root it). doesn't that kind of make it a bit annoying if you were using it?

No more worrying about finding a decent compatible accessories, although too much delay on releasing it will be frustating don't you think?
