I saw that case but wished it were like the Bobj case I mentioned earlier, which routes the speakers' signal to the front of the device.

Still, you'd have had to pay an additional $10 just for that one feature.
It might be worth the extra, though, as it creates a recessed back, which would be even easier to hold.

I just ordered this for my second case. Then, if I need to, I will attach a velcro hand strap to the back of it, to make it easier when I am reading in bed.
I read they smell horrible so may sure to sit it in the sun for a few days. I almost got one for the HDX but cancelled as I am sensitive to Chemical smells.

Sun? What is sun? No sun in these gray skies, lately!

I can rarely smell anything, so I am not worried about it.

We had plenty today but it's cold!

Not that it's good but then you it shouldn't bother you. My FIL has no sense of smell either. Me I am super sensitive to smells. I smell everything so I have to be careful.

DH and the kids have very good noses, so if it stinks, they'll be sure to let me know! I'll probably only use it in bed at night.

It's difficult to justify the cost of this leather case (warning: disturbing image and price tag), but I want it in chimney black!

I still own the Mutter Museum calendar that contains the Joel Peter Witkin photo from which that cover image was taken.

If you're in the mood to look at less grotesque covers and don't mind spending too much money, have a look at the seller's other designs:

http://www.etsy.com/shop/joevleather...7693569&page=2

Dr. Who fans (or people who like silver discs attached to antique blue leather) might be interested in this.

I happen to love this cover image as well:





I've just sent a message to the foont who confects these covers asking whether they tailor cases to the Nexus 7.2, but I'm fairly certain the answer will be one of these:

1. They expect the case to fit both models or
2. They'll create a case with the same design and materials for the N7.2.

Assuming I get one for X-mas, I plan on using my old K3 zippered EVA case. I checked, it should fit.

Here's my case. While I love it, I'm not sure I'm going to keep it. Mainly because I use the Nexus to plays games a lot and the more I use it, the more I wish I had a hand strap. Still, it's a really nice case.

Very nice, sparkle. I have a similar style, mine is a Moko. Beautiful, but I don't care for the white edge around the tablet. I hadn't thought of returning it, but maybe I should.

Eeek. Forget it. They want $8.00 to return it.

Sold my white Moko case on ebay, so not losing any money. I really love the Poetic GraphGrip Case I have on it. That thing is SO nice. (Nobody mentioned a smell either, and I didn't ask). Of course that has no screen protection, so I might get another Moko Slimfit later. Or the one with the hand strap. I love hand straps.

Oh on my Graphgrip I added one of my girls black hair bands diagonally and it serves as a hand strap! I told them they can't have it back.

I just bought the Bobj cover, that reroutes the speakers to the front. Just wondering, how essential is a screen protector since I will have a cover?

I don't use them on any of my devices but my phone. I think it messes with the clarity of screen.

It does. I have them on our three Nook HD's. Not on the nexus or the Fires. There is a real difference.
