Top New Nexus 7 (2013) accessories revealed

The new Nexus 7 has already gone sale in the US and will be coming soon to the world at large. If you’re planning on picking up this shinier, faster and slimmer tablet then have a look at the best accessories announced so far!

 5. Asus Nexus 7 2 Travel Cover

The first Nexus 7 2 accessory on our list is also the most colourful – the official Nexus 7 2 Travel Cover. The Travel Cover is designed to be thin and light, just like the tablet itself. With a front flip cover and back-and-sides protection, you’ll get complete coverage of the new Nexus 7. One of the nicest things about the Travel Cover is that it comes in six colours – red, black, pink, yellow, green and blue – so you can really personalise your 2nd generation Nexus 7.

 4. MU Foldable USB Mains Charger

The new Nexus 7 comes with the same charger as the old model. It’s not a terrible charger, but the AC adapter part is definitely quite bulky – particularly in the UK. A much more portable alternative Nexus 7 (2013) charger is the MU Foldable USB Mains Charger, which packs the bulky UK plug into a convenient folding mechanism. The adapter provides 1A of power too, ensuring fast charges.

3. Asus Screen Protector for Nexus 7 2

This screen protector pack is the second of three official accessories mentioned today, coming directly from Asus themselves. The pack includes two screen protectors, each perfectly fitted to the new Nexus 7’s screen. One protector is clear, for the best possible visibility, while the other is an anti-glare unit that should ensure optimum readability in sunlight. Each can be removed and reapplied as necessary.

 2. PadPivot NST Ultra Portable Tablet Stand

The PadPivot is one of the few mobile accessories that I actually use day-to-day. It’s brilliant for my Nexus 10 and should work well with the Nexus 7 as well. The stand folds up for minimal packing space, making it ideal for use on the train. The stand can even be used on your lap  with the included strap. If you’re watching or gaming on the Nexus 7, this is an essential accessory.

 1. Asus Premium Cover for Nexus 7 2

Our final accessory today is the multifunctional Premium Cover, also by Nexus 7 makers Asus. The Premium Cover is a two-piece design, with a plastic cladding that will protect the body of the tablet and a flip cover that provides screen protection. Like the Apple Smart Cover, the flip cover can also be folded into a triangular prism to serve as a low or high angle stand. This blend of form and function makes the Premium Cover my top choice for the new Nexus 7.


That’s all for now! I hope you find the accessories useful, and be sure to let me know what you think of the selections in the comments below.
