    Default i-Blason covers?

    Does anyone have one yet? I've found one on Amazon that looks ok Amazon.com: i-BLASON Google Nexus 7 inch Tablet Genuine Leather Case Cover Detachable Landscape / Portrait View (Smart Cover Function: Automatically Wakes and Puts the Nexus 7 to Sleep) for 8GB 16GB Android 4.1 Jelly Bean - Three Year Warranty (Black

    The problem is I want to be able to hold the device and I'm not sure how well that works on this one. If I keep taking the case apart it will wear out. If it doesn't fold back I'd have to take it apart.

    I wonder if maybe this one would be better? http://www.amazon.com/i-BLASON-Googl...i-blason+nexus

    I have the second one. It's pretty good. Everything lines up correctly and it feels good in the hand and the magnet is in the correct place for sleep. I would give the quality a 6 out of 10. It was $19.99 Prime shipped when I ordered it. I guess the price isnt too bad but feels more in line with a $10 to $15 case.

    I had a Snugg case for my KIndle and it had great quality but was pretty thick and $30. This is at least thinner.

    Bottom line is I don't love it or hate it. For $20 and under I don't think I would love any case.

    I ordered the first one and we'll see. I'm starting to think I wasted my money though. I think I should have went with something simpler. One like this

    I was wrong, the case is good. The lid folds back easily and it's very light. It just feels good. Having the tablet auto wake is good as well. There's a hole in the spine that reveals a pin hole in the nexus. It must be an emergency reset or something-

    I believe that is a microphone

    How does the case fit/feel when you fold it open portrait? (and hold in your hands)

    Feels fine. I would advise against using it as directed (taking it off the back) as Velcro wears out. Just leave it in landscape. It stands fine that way and folding it makes it easy to hold.

    Its a two piece case so you can pull the flap off if find it uncomfortable.


    The case is $20 so I think I'll get my moneys worth out of it long before the velcro wears out.

    How is the case when it comes to gaming? Is it comfortable or does the case get in the way? Thanks.
