Rotating stand case, Bluetooth keyboard
Asus, the company that manufactured the Nexus 7, appears to be preparing to release a line of dedicated accessories for the hot-selling tablet. Mobile Fun Blog has gotten ahold of several images showing off a range of covers and other accessories for the Nexus 7. Asus has yet to release details on when the accessories will become available.
The images show off five accessories. The first is a rotating stand case that allows for the device to be propped up in either portrait or landscape mode. That case appears to feature a front cover not unlike those seen with Apple's Smart Covers, which can be folded at hinge points to adjust the angle at which the device rests.
Two other cases are shown, one a folio case and the other a non-rotating case with a built-in stand. The folio case cover flips back to form a landscape stand, and it has an integrated wallet. A fourth case integrates a Bluetooth Keyboard.
Finally, Asus will be providing screen protectors for the Nexus 7. These oleophobic protectors are dry mounts that contain no adhesive, and they are engineered to preserve the Nexus 7's contrast and viewing angles.
The new accessories come on the heels of previous leaks showing off a travel cover and an audio dock for the Nexus 7.
