Cases for Nexus 7 (2013)
When I bought my Nexus 7, I also bought a generic tablet case. Well, actually, it's made for the Samsung Galaxy Tab. However, it can be used on other seven inch tablets. It's OK but it makes the tablet heavy and it's also difficult to reach the power button with it on. I bought a smart case on Amazon from a company called Envy Deal. At first it was great but then the magnet that causes the tablet to wake and sleep started to cause my tablet to go into sleep mode all the time. Every time I pressed the button to wake it, it would go back to sleep. So I am no longer using that case. I would like a case that is made specifically for the Nexus 7, is nice and doesn't cost a lot of money. Have any of you come across good cases for the Nexus 7 yet?

I as well purchased the moko. I did not care for the popular alternative of the Poetic case.
I did have an issue however. The stitching on the handstrap did lay across the face of my device and left marks on the screen protector. I had to wipe furiously to remove the markings. I did not care for the strap and so undid the stitching to remove the strap altogether.
I had hoped Exotek was making a case for the 2013 Nexus, but the altered Moko suits me well.

I've got Chil's Notchbook case (barcode: 853933004443) which says its a "universal case for 7 inch tablets".
Honestly, I'm not sure that I can recommend the case. I've got some mixed impressions, but how much of this is my lack of familiarity with tablet accessories vs real issues, I'm just not sure.
Things that I've noticed are:
PS: About your magnet problem... noticed on other Android forums users have issues with the magnets slipping out of the covers.

I have the Moko ultra slim and really like it so far. I have the Poetic on my old Nexus and it fell apart pretty quickly. The Moko is also lighter and thinner than the Poetic. There are wake problems with a lot of the new Nexus models but I leave Bluetooth on all the time and it works fine now.

I got this rooCase and really like it. Flip cover folds in several directions for propping up the tab to read, all buttons easily accessible, has a nice hand feel. Also it was dirt cheap. Only had it a week so I can't talk about wear, but so far it's working out well for me.

Amazon.com has the rooCase for a mere $6, but won't ship to Canada sadly. Even sadder is that the Amazon.ca website wants $30 for the same case. /sigh
