Actually, that the manufacturer (iBlason) is the seller lends credibility. It's just the fact that so many 3rd party stores (not manufacturers) are trying to pass off solutions designed for other devices as being 'custom built' for the Nexus 7 that causes me to tend to take a close look.
Looks like a really nice case - if user reviews are generally positive I'll probably pick one up for occasions where 'thinness' of the case is paramount.
I got my i-Blason case in today. It is a little different then the one one the youtube video. This one is also smart case that will put the Nexus to sleep when closed. Case fits great. Every port and sensor is exposed including the mic.
I bought a grey iBlason case for my Nexus 7. It has a quality look and feel, and is lightweight. I like how opening the cover turns on the Nexus and closing the cover turns it off. Mine came with a stylus which works great. I would recommend the iBlason case to anyone.
The on/off feature with the magnetic clasp is an undocumented feature of the Nexus. I have heard that Apple has a patent on this technology which may be why Nexus is not advertising it.
I also bought one of these cases after seeing the pics posted here. Should have it in a few days, I also bought a cheaper one earlier that I'll try out simply cause it was cheap and could work better for different situations. We shall see.
I just got mine in and it is actually quite nice. Although I like it I still bought a tpu case for it because I just like how little tpu changes the shape and size vs the folio case. Probably going to use tpu for home and the i-blazon case for on the go.
I just received my i-Blazon case in the mail and I love it. I was concerned it would make my N7 too thick, but I am happy with the slim profile for a leather case. I was holding out for the official case when I ordered my i-Blazon, and I thought I would still want the official case after receiving the i-Blazon, but now I think I will ride with this case for a while to see how I like it.
this may be a dumb question but does it allow 3 different stances while in landscape mode?
If you mean the angle of display while in landscape, yes it does. I think I will need to break mine in a bit more though. The case is a bit stiff when new, which is probably a good thing. I think it will hold together over time.
This is my absolute favorite style of case. Protects the corners and generally sides from a straight down drop impact, but is completely unobtrusive and non bulky. If I can't find a tpu case that's just a skin with a kickstand, then this is my choice.
i'm new to this forum, but have had the iblason case from day one and frankly consider it ok but not great, and just ordered the exotec. very thick, corners of the unit, where damage usually occurs, are left unprotected. to change from landscape to portrait requires separating velcro, sometimes difficult to line up. i bought it for the dual position functionality and frankly because not a hell of a lot else was available early on. i'm hoping the exotec with protected corners but leaving the rest of the screen completely open will also eliminate not being able to easily get to border controls, such as the settings button on firebox beta.
