To my fellow flo'ers - has Asus/Google released any cases yet?  My OCD will run rampant until suitable protection can be acquired.

Wow, that link was dead a few hours ago.  Awesome.

 

The second looks great; I have that for my fiancee's iPad and it does the job.

 

And to be honest...I ditched my Portenzo for the shit grey Asus case/sleeve thing months ago.  It's terrible and cheap...but it does the job.

My Nexus 7 should be here tomorrow, I'm also the type to want to use cases on my devices. I always have had one on my phones, and this should be no exception. Maybe I'll order that Asus one, or wait a week or two and see what other manufactures get in the game. Does that front cover flap get annoying?

As someone who has the old version for the old N7 -- yes.

My Fiance has the iPad Mini, and she opted for an otter box. Personal opinion on those is that they are way to bulky. I love my Razr Maxx case from Cruzer Lite, and hope they put one out for the new Nexus 7. I'm pretty sure they had one for the older one. I figure between that and a good screen protector it should be mint.

And upon searching, I found my answer. Cruzer Lite has them on Amazon said to be release August 18th. Might just have to pre-order one. :-)

I use an Otterbox for my phones, but for tablets, I'm a bit turned away by the bulk.  I used a Portenzo for the original Nexus 7, but I couldn't stand it after a while.  For this...I'm actually enjoying the naked feel?

Hmmm.  Good find.  I wouldn't mind something clear (I like seeing logos and whatnot).

Ya, I guess I gotta see how it feels naked first. But it would be cool to have matching cases, lol.

I still swear by non-white Cruzerlite. had a few for the Gnex, one on my HTC One, and one of my 2012 N7. Love them. Thin, not sticky, appropriately grippy, and relatively inexpensive.

Remember that time I bought a white AOKP case?

 

Yeah, that wasn't yellow in 3 weeks. :(

Going caseless for the time being but going to be using a sleeve that I had for an old Kindle that I had.  Fits fine, little big for the tablet but gets the job done until a case that I really like comes out.

I don't think I would ever put a case on a tablet. I prefer a carrying case when not in use and a dock for home. I've never been a case guy though, be it phone or tablet.

I like mine with out one, but I hate the feeling that is getting scratched and stuff. I've always used one on every phone is used.

Looks pretty good with that carbon fiber.

I have a dbrand skin on my N4 and I love it.  I would considering picking one up for the new N7 but the curve corners are going to be an absolute pain the ass to put on properly.  

 

Edit:  Now that I looked at it corner don't seem to be an issue but I would never in my life put something on the front.  Ruins the look of black uniformity on the front when screen is off.

I pre-ordered it for my GNex but by the time they actually started shipping them out.. I had already sold it.

so you got a sleeve or carrying case to recommend for the new N7? ... is there even a dock out for it? it doesn't have those pogo pins anymore..

Being the impatient one I am, I pre ordered the Cruizer Lite, and it is saying its shipped, but wont be here until the middle of September. But now the one on Amazon is 3 bucks less the shipping I paid, and shipped via Amazon with a prime option. So I have to wait... I guess.

Nice ! I like it in black... But I think I wanna keep mine naked and take the risk... I'm pretty careful with my devices usually... I really like the sleeve they sell in the play store actually but the price with shipping is a bummer....

I was speaking on behalf of my 2012 model. I'd imagine that anything would fit the new one too as far as sleeves go. I'll look at what I have when I get home from work and get back to you.

You're absolutely right and I had no Idea... Its at $3.99 for shipping now.. Case is still $30 though but it looks really good in a review I saw.. I knew they had brought it down a bit at first because it was absolutely ludicrous but I didn't know they had gone so far down... Thanks for the heads up ;-)

I just ordered this, I figured I wasn't taking a big risk at 10 bucks and free shipping...

 

I also got one of these:
