Review: Ultimate Nexus 7 Accessory Pack

Quite some time back I received the Ultimate Nexus 7 Accessory Pack from the very good folks over at GearZap.com.   This is a kit loaded with goodies for your precious Google Nexus 7!  The only difference between what was on the website and what actually arrived was the “Leather Style Case”, it was a minor difference and in all honestly what I received was better.  The case on the website has a flappy thing on the back that when you fold the front over so you can angle the tablet up off the table or stand it vertically in landscape mode, the case I was shipped uses magnets to secure the lid folded into a triangle (Click to see larger images)

Here it goes.
