ASUS have announced the Australian availability of their Nexus 7 Travel Covers just in time for Father’s Day, albeit in an extremely small post on their Facebook page. The colours available are Pink, Light Gray, Teal, Yellow, Green and Dark Gray, with not all the colours being available from the looks at this stage. Pricing is around the $25-$30 mark. You can find them at JB Hi-Fi, The Good Guys, EB Games and a number of selected ASUS retailers. Let us know in the comments if you pick one up.

    I now have a scratch right in the middle of the screen thanks to lack of covers available for over a month and counting since I got my nexus. Can someone please tell me why we shouldnt just buy iPads??? How hard is it to give Asus and Google my money for official accessories? Once again, this difference in service is why apple are dominating.

    Still haven’t been able to find one in Adelaide. The time between the tablet’s release and the availability of accessories is starting to get a bit ridiculous.

      True, but hopefully this means they’ll be easier to find.

      Correct, but it’s now “official” :)
