It's Memorial Day weekend folks and along with wishing everyone a happy holiday weekend I thought it would be fun to introduce a really cool Nexus 7 accessory that could come in handy all summer long. It's a waterproof case that let's you use your Nexus 7 while lying around and even IN the pool without any fear of damaging your tablet. In fact you can use the touchscreen even while you're in...or under water! Now this is terrific if you plan on reading, playing games or even watching a movie or tv show on your Nexus 7 while at the beach or perhaps while floating in that pool lounge in the backyard pool.
Now of course as those who know me...I'm ridiculously obsessive about my tech gadgets so of course I did a bunch of research while looking for a waterproof case and I quickly ruled out all of those cheap ones shipping in from China you find on Amazon or Ebay. Not worth the risk and I'd rather spend a bit more for a quality item. I wanted to find one that had some official certification of its waterproof effectiveness and the 'Beach Buoy' has it! The Proporta Beach Buoy is fully BSI IP57 and IP58 compliant and tested by the British Standards Institute! That means you can take your Nexus 7 up to 5 metres (approx 15 feet) deep and it'll stay perfectly dry! The case itself features both front and back 'crystal clear' windows so you can see the display perfectly. It's also amazing how responsive the touchscreen is with the case on so you can use all the functions. The only thing you won't have access to of course are the ports since the case is sealed.
Now I looked around and the Proporta Beach Buoy case is usually sold for $26.95 direct from the manufacturer but you can get it on Amazon right now for just $19.95 in the US with Free Shipping (the top link below) or for $25.99 in the UK (second link below). Definitely a worthwhile accessory that's also great at keeping out dust and moisture on camping trips, etc as well as being waterproof. It not only fits the Nexus 7 but also just about any 7 inch or smaller sized tablet including Kindles and Nooks, the iPad Mini and of course it'll be great to use when the new Nexus 7 comes out as well! It also includes a neck strap and a Lifetime Exchange Warranty! Hit the links below to grab one and take your Nexus 7 to the beach and pool this summer without any fear!
