Nexus 7 sleeve

Neoprene and microfiber protection for every model of Nexus 7.

Along with the announcement that the Nexus 7 is now available in Canada, Google has also put up the first official accessory for the device in the Play Store. The simply-named "Nexus 7 Sleeve" is a neoprene and microfiber zip-up case designed to protect your tablet. The styling seems to be pretty basic and is black on the outside with grey cloth on the inside, and has a second pouch on the outside for other cables and accessories.

The Play Store listing indicates that the Nexus 7 sleeve will work with both 2012 and 2013 editions of the tablet, which is nice. The sleeve is now on sale in the U.S. and Canada for $29.99 and indicates that it will ship in 1-2 business days, with some pretty expensive shipping options starting at $17.98. If this design isn't your thing, Google also sells a generic 7-inch tablet sleeve from its own store for less.

Let's hope this is just the beginning of official Nexus 7 accessories from Google this time around.

Printers are to ink,
Shaving tools are to razor blades,
Pens are to refills,
Cheap tablets are to "Official" cases.

I want super cheap stuff.
These cases are a ripoff!
Go buy an iPad...

Shipping is $17.98? Do they actually want anyone to buy these? The shipping for the Google branded 7" tablet is only $6.50.

I have one from Amazon that I paid $5 with prime shipping. Google clearly out of their damn minds.

I'm sure you did. I think I saw it not too long ago when I was looking at the site.

Geez $30.00 for a case that should cost $5.00-$10.00 at the most plus $17.98 for shipping?! Are Larry and Sergey knitting these by hand and running these out on the Google private jet?

Why can't Google make an effort to have accessories that are of decent quality come out on day one of a tablet release? Who wouldn't buy a case the day they buy the tablet? I love android but I'm tired of Google's slapdash approach to retail. I've got a tablet that doesn't leave the house because I don't yet have a decent case.

It looks.. god damn crap. Why would anyone wanna hide the beautiful new Nexus 7 in something that looks like a CD carry case from the 90s. They should have designed something that compliments the device like Apple have done with the colorful magnetic iPad covers. Very disappointed

Who do they think they are, Apple? Love the $6 per ounce shipping rate they have going on. The Nexus 7 must cost $130 to ship.

Clearly they're trying to recoup the free shipping offered on the N7. Good luck with that.
