I got the Poetic case from Amazon with the built in Bluetooth keyboard.  Great quality leather and build.  Keyboard pared first try.  For 24.95 you can't beat it.

Good Question!
My 2-cents worth.  Need to first decide on the purpose served by YOUR case. 

My needs are: protect the screen; protect N7 from bump and drop damage; light in weight; good tight fit; carry all my N7 junk - (stylus, cleaning cloth, earphones, cable, flash drive, SD reader, pen and paper - perhaps a charger cube).

N7 is so light and easy to hold that I'll probably be using it out of the case.

Seems that fitted cases add too much weight and bulk (for me).  Also, little room for storage.  My best choice is a small neoprene case with exterior storage pouch. No need for access to N7 ports and buttons.  Generic is just fine.   Not very stylish -- but very practical (for me).  Probably can find one for under $10.

The ones at PC World look good, although a bit pricey:

Available in other colours as well.

Well, I first bought a $6 Neoprene cover on Amazon  to protect the Nexus 7 while in my briefcase.
http://www.amazon.com/Neoprene-Accessories-Includes-keychain-MDK2G2B1/dp/B008BXR5B0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1347159507&sr=8-1&keywords=Black+Neoprene+With+Zipper+Outside+Pocket+For+Extra+Accessories

It worked fine but is useful only for packing..    I really wanted a book like case similar to the one I used with my old Kindle.  I found the "Google Nexus 7 Tablet Slim Fit Leather Case (Deep Blue) with Stand by Supcase (TM)" on Amazon Prime and ordered it:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008I0E7X0/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00

I am very happy with it.  The quality is excellent and I really like that it turns off the tablet for me when I close it. The Nexus has not been out of the case since I received it.

Well then I recently ran into the "Rothco Brown Canvas Small Travel Portfolio Shoulder Bag" for $15 on Amazon Prime and could not resist ordering it:
http://www.amazon.com/Brown-Canvas-Travel-Portfolio-Shoulder/dp/B005K90RF4/ref=cm_pdp_rev_itm_title_1

It came in this week and I am really pleased with it.  Looks and feels like canvas but is actually cotton, so not as heavy. Really well made and a steal for the price. PLUS, the Nexus with leather case fits in the bag like it was made for it!

I think I have enough cases now!

I am usually not cheap with my accessories but I just can't bring myself to pay close to $40 for a case. Most of the ones I see don't protect the device any better than the one I bought at 5 below for $5. If you open it like a upside down V, it even stands. Actually, The one with the keyboard posted in the link by Alderson is cool though. I would pay 30 for that.

I got a reply from trident the other day, they will be making a case for the 7. It should be out at the beginning of november.

I am a huge fan of their products, and currently use a trident aegis on my gnex.

Hi there guys I am YoshiDrei81601 from the Philippines and I just bought a new case for my Nexus 7. It is called the FlipJacket for Nexus 7 by Capdase Products which is from Hongkong ,China. It has a "folio" type design which I find to be very elegant and classy looking for daily usage. It also has a very good build quality even though it is from China. It has a stand which is built into it for watching movies, typing, or browsing the Internet. It also covers the silver part of the screen which makes it look like a Google I/O edition Nexus 7. And it also covers the left side of the screen which makes me very happy because I will not see the "screen lift" issue anymore ;D .  - Yoshi-
