While the Nexus 5 and its associated accessories hit the Play Store today, Google quietly also updated the case offerings for the Nexus 7 and HP Chromebook 11. The Nexus 7 Sleeve, which was released back in August and works with either generation of the tablet, has picked up a neon yellow and subtle grey color. The sleeve will still set you back a hefty $29.99, but you're getting a well-made case for the money. We're still seeing "coming soon" for both new colors, unfortunately.
On the larger side of things, the newly-announced HP Chromebook 11 Sleeve is getting a new color — a red inside with white outside combination. It's the same $49.99 price as the other colors, and again is still "coming soon."

Glad to see Google getting better with accessory releases. Posted from my pure Google Nexus 4 using the AC app.
Yeah, it's really great to see a range of cases and accessories available at launch day. Not to mention that I like that yellow. Posted via Android Central App
$30 for a neoprene sleeve is still ridiculous. I bought a Poetic case that's a BRIGHT yellow (think high-vis) for $10 from amazon... And it has a magnet that turns it on and off...
That's one way they probably make up for selling hardware at low prices. Posted via Android Central App
I got a very similar zip up case from The source for $14.99. It was for generic ebooks and tablets but fits the nexus 7 like a glove.
How about some manly (AKA normal) colors?
