Re: Nexus 7 3G wont fit official covers?
I've got both the WiFi and 3G versions and a standard issue case that I got with my WiFi N7 back in July. When I got my 3G, I decided to use the standard Google/Asus case with my WiFi N7. Here are the holes that line up from the WiFi case when using the 3G N7.

Mic holes (WiFi mic holes are on the lower left side and top left side. The 3G mic holes are on the upper right side and lower left side but higher than the Wifi due to the SIM card placement)
Sim card holder
I just took a drill bit and drilled the upper right hand mic hole just above the power button and it works great. I've seen posts where you have to heat the drill bit up in order for the bit to melt the plastic, which isn't true. Put the case in grip or grip it to a table and start with a small drill bit and ream it out with larger bits. I had no problem with getting the hole the size I needed. The harder part was making sure it was in the right place. I only drilled one hole, but that's all I needed. Now I can use my WiFi standard issue case with my 3G N7.
