The official Nexus 7 case is in stock at the Google Play Store and Google says that it will ship it out in 3-5 business days to customers that order the case today.
The cover, which has been going for as much as $100 on eBay, is finally in stock at the Google Play Store and it can be bought for the much lower price of $19.99. The case had been listed as ‘Coming Soon’ with Google refusing to disclose any sort of shipping time frame.
While Google might be charging $19.99 for the dark gray case, it will be charging $9.99 for two-day shipping and as of right now, there doesn’t appear to be any other option for customers looking to protect their Nexus 7 tablet with a new official cover.
Google’s official Nexus 7 cover is a very simple solution for those that want to protect their new 7-inch Android 4.1 Jelly Bean tablet. It features a hard plastic back that snaps around the device and it also offers a cover to protect the screen.
The case also allows for simultaneous charging and headphone port access for those that wish to keep their headphones plugged in with the case on. It weighs 4.7oz and for now, it’s only available in dark gray.
The case is available for both the 8GB Nexus 7 and the 16GB Nexus 7 .
Those who have been holding out for the official case might want to place an order as soon as possible. Demand for the Nexus 7 and its accessories have been high ever since Google released the device earlier this month.
