    Case for Nexus 7 That Stands Upright (Portrait)

    I found a bunch of references and discussions in here about cases, but I haven't found anything (that I can tell) flips vertically and stands upright.

    I've got a new Nexus, and bought one of the cases that lets the unit pivot and stand "upright" either in landscape or portrait mode. The problem is it's nowhere NEAR upright in portrait mode. It leans back way too far. I've got a Nook Color, and it has a real leather case that opens at the top of the unit when in portrait mode, and there's a simple elastic strap that then connects to form a tripod that holds the Nook very vertically. It's great for reading at a table, and when used in bed the case isn't cumbersome and in the way.

    Has anyone seen a similar case for the Nexus, and if so, can you provide a pointer?

    The only type of cases I've seen that allow portrait and landscape mode is exactly like the one you have. They do have a plastic foldable stand, but I don't think that's what you're looking for either. Pretty limited on the variety of cases for this device.

    That's unfortunate... The rotating thing would be OK if it did a better job of holding portrait mode straighter, but mostly it's just annoying..... I suppose I could modify my case from the nook to do the job, but I'm surprised nobody has a decent case that's vertical.
