I received this email today.  I do, however, have the Google Nexus 7 32GB 3G + AT&T SIM.  Does anybody know why this case would not be compatible with that version?

Only thing I can think of is that maybe it doesn't have a cutout for the sim port on the HSPA+ model.  That shouldn't be a big deal...just pop the sim card in when it's out of the case.   As far as I know the dimensions and other ports and buttons are exactly the same as the Wifi models.

I do, and from someone who was a huge supporter and purchaser of OtterBox cases through the years, the Seidio is on par and cheaper.

I was desperate for a good rugged case, not wanting to wait for the OtterBox, I got the Seidio... glad I did.

So, now my Nexus 7 is in a Seidio case and my Samsung Galaxy Nexus is in a Seidio case (both are the active cases)

I feel bad because I love Otter Boxes.... just the price savings was worth the switch.

How easily does it slip into a pocket? Is it really rubbery textured? That's the problem with my gumdrop. It just doesn't slide in amend out of a pocket easily.

Lol.... Maybe.... Maybe not.... No its a pain in the butt to get my gumdrop case in and out of my jacket pocket. I just ordered a tpu case but would like a little more protection.

I did order the OtterBox this morning, but the price can up as $46.95!  Does anybody happen to know how WalMArt.com pricing works?  Do they vary the pries by location or time of day?

Also, I have the Nexus 7 with cellular connectivity.  Does the OtterBox cover up the microphone?  If so, could I just drill a small hole in the OtterBox for the microphone?

I picked this up this weekend from a local Wal-Mart.  It is well made, but it was a challenge to open it up and since I will want the ability to remove it from the case quickly to use the ASUS dock, I decided to return this.  So, I guess I will navigate around here and see if there are other threads on cases.  I want a good case, BUT I also want the ability to remove it from the case fairly quickly.  Does anybody know if that is possible with other somewhat rugged cases?

I think seidio makes their active cases for the N7 and that would be your best bet.

I did get a case from Trident for my wife's phone Christmas 2011.  I might read up on this a little bit more.
