High quality, just the right amount of protection and a little Nexus flair
Google historically hasn't had the best track record with making a lineup of accessories available for their Nexus devices. Between the almost nonexistent Galaxy Nexus accessories and the horribly late Nexus 7 dock, there haven't been too many highlights. With the Nexus 4 Google stepped in the right direction offering a bumper, headphones, charging cables and a Qi wireless charger.
We now have our hands on the first official accessory in the era of the new Nexus 7, the aptly-named "Nexus 7 Sleeve", available directly from Google Play for $30. Original snafus about the absurd shipping prices aside, this still isn't a cheap case. After all, the Nexus 7 itself starts at just $229 so why spend so much on protection for it?
