Top Google Nexus 7 Accessories

With the Google Nexus 7 Android Jelly Bean tablet just around the corner, we at Gadget Helpline take a look at some of the best and our favourite accessories that you can get to completely pimp out your new tablet.

SophistiCase Leather Style Rotating Google Nexus 7 Case – RRP £19.99

Any tablet owner will tell you that the key to longevity of your device is a good case, and with the Nexus 7 our favourite is the SophistiCase Leather Style Rotating Google Nexus 7 Case.

We like the Sophisticase for a range of reasons; first its offers protection for your device as well as a built in stand that works both landscape and portrait modes, and second of all you can get the case in some cool colours such as Black, Red, Purple and Tan.


Trial NFC Starter Pack – RRP £14.99, App – Free

One of the big features of the Google Nexus 7 tablet is the much talked about NFC Capability. With this “Starter Pack” what you get is a host of NFC stickers, tags, cards and even an NFC Wristband, all of which you can program and write to control yourself.

The basic premise is that you can download an app (we recommend NFC TagReader) on your tablet and then with the new NFC tags you can write a list of functions. E.G. If you want to use the device in your car then you can set the tag to turn on GPS, Turn off WiFi, Play Music and connect via Bluetooth. Then once you get in your car just a simple swipe of the tablet across the NFC Tag will change your Nexus 7 to “Car Mode”.

Currently NFC is in its early stages but if you can get the hang of it with this simple start-up pack you will be the envy of your friends.


MFX Google Nexus 7 Screen Protector – RRP £9.99

A screen protector in this modern age is pretty much a must-have if you plan on moving your device around, and the MFX Protectors are some of the best (and only) protectors available for the Nexus 7 Tablet.

The screen protectors come in packs of 5 so users can swap them out when one gets tired and will offer you a nearly invisible first barrier of protection against the rough world.



iDuo Stylus And Pen – RRP £9.99

The Google Nexus 7’s 7” 1280×800 HD display is a joy to play with but sometimes you need a bit more finesse when typing or sketching out that all important detail on Draw Something. So for these  moments we recommend a stylus and the iDuo Stylus And Pen is a classy looking stylus for any capacitive touch screen device. Confusion will also be rife as the iDuo stylus also doubles as a pen with the “rubber end” working on touch screen devices and the other end a fully functioning twist ball point pen.


Dual USB Cigarette Car Charger – RRP £9.99


With the Google Nexus 7 you will get a Micro USB – USB charger connection and a plug adapter dependant on where you are in the world, but with a Dual USB Cigarette Car Charger you will then be able to turn your in-car cigarette port into a USB charger which then connects your Google Nexus 7 Cable.

Additionally you will be left with a second USB slot to plug in any other products such as a GPS or just to charge your phone.


That’s our round up of some of the best accessories you can buy for the new Jelly Bean tablet, but in the coming months we’re sure to see many a manufacturer rush in to create some new and funky accessories for the Google Nexus 7, so stay tuned for an update.
