Among several tablets on the market it’s the iPad that comes with the largest variety of covers of all possible kinds. There are lots of them – so many that sometimes it’s hard to make a decision.
What about other brands and models? We’ll list here tablet covers for Amazon Fire, Samsung Galaxy, Google Nexus, and other models as well.
The purpose of this overview is to highlight best designs that could express personality and taste.
Before the list, we’d like to share some buying tips. If you want to skip this section, you can jump directly to:
Before getting down to choosing the cover, it’s good to know the dimensions of your device. In case of the most popular tablets, like iPad or Amazon Fire, the covers are tailored to their exact dimensions.
If you own a less popular model, you’ll probably have to choose one of “universal size” covers. They fall into two categories: for 7-inch, and 10-inch tablets.
