Nexus 7 gets iPad-style SmartCase

SD TabletWear SmartCase offers protection, magnetic closure and puts your Google tablet to sleep

Got a Nexus 7 but stealing envious glances at the iPad’s magnetic Smart Case? Well, you can put the green-eyed monster back in its cave, because there’s a cover for Google’s slate that works in much the same way.

The SD TabletWear SmartCase covers the front and back of the Nexus 7, with a front flap that holds itself closed using magnets. When closed, the case puts the Nexus 7 into sleep mode; open it up and it’ll spring back into life.

The SmartCase is available now from MobileFun, priced at £17.95.
