People, I have owned a few tablets and noticed that the Nexus 7 damages a lot easier (and I mean a lot) than any other tablet. My Motorola XOOM is over a year old and it still looks great. My Nexus 7, which is only a few months old, has been easily scratched by what I would consider trivia brushing. Anyway, lesson learned. Don't wait and get immediate protection for your device (despite the high cost of accessories for such an inexpensive device).
