    Default Official Asus premium nexus 7 case

    Does anyone know when the official nexus 7 premium case will be available?

    The Poetic slimline won't be in Stock until end of next month so I'm wondering if the official one will be here first.

    Here is the link for the official cover if anyone is interested:

    It doesn't say if it has a magnet. Can the official case possibly not have one?

    It doesn't say anything about it being a Smart case... May have to wait for a review on this because If it doesn't have a magnet inside than I'll probably go with something else.

    I too want the Premium Case, but they have not mentioned anything, it is killing me.

    Well its a premium... Logic dictates it should have all the bells and whistles. But then again looking at the current one... Idk.

    According to Asus support there is no screen wake feature on the "Premium" case :-/

    LOL... I have a Supcase from Amazon on my 1st generation Nexus 7 and it's been just fine. I have the same case ordered for my 2nd generation N7 from here: Amazon.com: SUPCASE New Google Nexus 7 FHD 2nd Generation Tablet Slim Fit Folio Leather Case - Black (Free Stylus, Elastic Hand Strap, Support Auto Wake/Sleep, Compatible with ASUS Google Nexus 7 Full HD 2 2.0 II Tablet 2013 Version): Computers & Acc and I expect the same thing even though the photos on Amazon are clearly Photoshopped and are of a 1st Gen N7.

    It's about a month wait until they make & ship them, but the Poetic Slimline is almost the same design, but with the wake feature, and for $6 for the black version:

    Amazon.com : Poetic Slimline Case for Google Nexus 7 2nd Gen 2013 Android Tablet Black (With Auto Wake / Sleep Function) (3 Year Manufacturer Warranty From Poetic) : Electronics

    I used the same case, but for the first gen, and really liked it. Already pre-ordered the new case in green.
    Tablets: 2nd gen Nexus 7 32gb, 1st gen Nexus 7 16gb

    I have the slimline for the original as well for the Nexus 7. Pre ordered a Nexus 7 2013 slimline black too.

    I just ordered one of these based solely on your recommendation. I figure for 6 dollars, if it sucks, I'll use it as a fly swatter.

    It's not the same case, but very similar. I might order that one too, it's cheap enough and I might need a backup fly swatter.

    Speck is releasing a Fitfolio. Hopefully it'll be as good as the original.

    That same case is sold under different names by many companies. the FHD Nexus 7 deserves a nice light close fitting non-bulky case like you can get for iPads.
    Asus might as well make one since the obviously did a knockoff of iPad cases for their premium case.

    No wake on sleep is pretty dumb.

    No idea, though if you go to the Speck website, they give you an option to sign up for an email alert when it gets released.

    If you do a Google search for "90-XB3TOKSL00230" you'll see the official case listed at a bunch of different vendors. Not in stock at any of the sites...
