Portenzo, located just outside of St. Louis, makes high quality, premium cases for the Nexus 7. The case I reviewed is the BookCase, but there are other varieties available. Each Portenzo case is handmade in St. Louis, Missouri. Each case is made-to-order. They don’t start making your case until you place your order. You will need to visit their webpage in order to see all the color choices and options available. There are many to choose from.
Are you looking for a folio case that will provide adequate protection to your Nexus 7, but not add too much bulk? Then consider the FitFolio by Speck Products. Speck is the first Nexus 7 case manufacturer that I have actually seen in a retail store. The other day, while strolling through my local Walmart, I did see Speck cases on the shelf. I did not see a case specifically for the Nexus 7, but since this is a fairly new product, hopefully it is just a matter of time before we see it in stores. I also saw it listed on OfficeDepot’s website.
I am a member of several online communities and the Speck FitFolio is one of the cases that is mentioned as a must have case. After using the FitFolio for the past week, I have to agree. This case is constructed of a vegan leather cover, which is attached firmly to a plastic shell. The cover does have a soft interior to protect the Nexus 7 from being scratched up. Unlike other cases that use an elastic strap or a magnet in order to keep the case closed, the FitFolio has a plastic clasp that fits over the end of the plastic hard shell case. I really like the clasp and how it makes the case easily opened and closed.
Here’s a look at the FitFolio for the Nexus 7 from Speck Products. Keep an eye out for my written review later this week.
