    I plan on buying an N7 for a 7-year old and was wondering if you guys had any recommendations for a really rugged case along with a screen protector. Looking for max protection against drops and don't really care how bulky it is. Also, for screen protection, is there a tempered glass screen protector that you guys would recommend?

    Price is somewhat of a factor.

    I'd recommend a 2 piece case similar to an OtterBox Commuter. While they don't make one for the N7, a search on eBay or Amazon will probably turn something up. The Commuter has a hard plastic outer shell that's textured for better grip, and between the outer shell and the device is a silicone cushion. Believe me I've dropped my phone while in a commuter case many times and it just bounces.

    I don't have recommendations for a screen protector though. I just buy multi-packs of the cheap vinyl ones off ebay. they're cheap and if it gets damaged it's easy to take it off and put on another. Not what I'd recommend for your situation, but it is an option.

    I couldn't find any Otterbox cases for the 2013 N7, just the 1st gen. The two I've found so far are the Poetic Revolution and Gumdrop Drop Tech which both have built-in screen protectors.

    I have been looking at the New Nexus 7 also and they have a trident case for it out now.

    I just ordered this case for my 8 yo nephew, if I like it well enough I'll order another for myself. Built in kickstand was the deciding factor and the price difference is significant.

    Seidio has started shipping their Dilex cases for the 2013 N7. Had one on my old 2012 N7 and it worked great. Seidio Link
