My girlfriend loves her Nexus 7, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t get her a gift or two to make that device even more awesome. Unfortunately when I look at accessory lists online they usually just regurgitate the same information I see on dozens of other websites. I want something that will blow my mind.

Head back to the old days

My journal looks like it’s from the 1700s, and I like it that way. For some reason most tablet cases are designed to look like something from the future. This is great for a modern look, but what if I want something more rustic? This vintage case is just the solution I need. I can slide it in with all of my books and it blends right in.

I’ve used a few car mounts that latch to the windshield, but this one is different. It has a moveable arm that goes at the feet of the passenger seat. This keeps it out of your view and you can pretty much move it wherever you want.

I’ve never bought into the whole solar power thing, because from my experience the chargers don’t work all that well. The Anker foldable solar panel is a huge exception. If you have the extra cash then try out this solar panel, because it’s portable and sends plenty of power to your Nexus 7.

  1. Includes a single USB charging port
  2. It comes with plastic solar panels and polyester materials so it holds up to weather changes
  3. It has eyes holes for latching onto a backpack

I ride my bike quite a bit, and in Chicago it tends to rain a lot. I have a water resistant backpack, but that’s not always enough to keep my electronics dry. This water-resistant sleeve case works wonders when you are not sure about the weather. You also don’t have to worry about dropping your Nexus 7 because the foam interior is thick as heck.

Forget the fingerprints

For whatever reason all of my devices end up way too greasy by the end of the day. I touch my phone and tablet with greasy fingers after eating, and I don’t do them any favors after going for a workout. All Nexus 7 accessories provide quality uses, but this one is a must for everyone, since I know I’m not the only one with a smudged screen.

Why should you buy it?

  1. Reduces smudges and fingerprints on your Nexus 7

Gaming in the 21st century

Sometimes I want to play my old Gameboy games on a Nexus 7, but they are tough to control. Sometimes I just get frustrated with the stupid virtual joy sticks they give you in most Android games. These joy sticks are hard to control and they don’t always work well. That’s why I like the Nyko Playpad for gaming wherever you go.

Why should you buy it?

  1. It comes with the free Nyko app so you can modify the controller layout and check out older games
  2. Works with tons of games
  3. Comes with a durable stand to place your Nexus 7

Music on the go

I see many people still carrying around boom boxes when I go to the Lake Michigan beach. Maybe, it’s a retro thing, or maybe they just don’t know about the Blackberry mini stereo speaker. This nifty device links up to your Nexus 7 without any wires and it has a cool design so that you can hook the speaker to a strap on your backpack or purse. Walk around with music whenever you want.

Why should you buy it?

  1. It clips on backpack straps so you can walk around and listen
  2. Runs on Bluetooth technology so that you can connect your nexus 7 easily and also at a distance of 10 feet.
  3. You can listen to music or take calls on the device



You’ve seen my opinions, and it’s obvious that I enjoy Nexus 7 accessories that push the boundaries a little bit. The last time I searched for Nexus 7 accessories I really wanted to locate something that carried change in the Nexus 7 case without looking too bulky. I never really found anything, but I’m still on the hunt.

It’s Nexus 7 accessories like these that make it worthwhile to have a great tablet device. You have a chance to push the limits and play around with your Nexus 7 like a kid. I personally love the idea of the messenger bag that converts into the car movie player. I ride my bike all over the place, so the messenger bag makes sense, and just the idea of watching movies in the backseat is enough to make me want to revisit my childhood.
