A while back we posted a video which revealed a magnet within the Nexus 7, similar to that seen on the iPad 2 and 3. It seemed logical that this magnet could be used for a Smart Cover-type case, and two weeks later, the first case has been outed.
The case was outed by our good friends MobileFun, who regularly send us products to review. A new video uploaded by the UK retailer shows off two cases which have the smart cover functionality we predicted not long ago.
There are some slight differences between the way the sleep function works on the Nexus 7 compared to the iPad. Apple’s tablet opens right on the last thing you were doing when opening the smart cover, however Google’s tablet opens on the lock screen. However, you can disable the lock screen from the settings menu on Android.
