I think I have asked something similar on here before, I think it will work for SD storage but the n7 doesn't support the MHL for the tv. I could be wrong (I hope!) lol.

http://www.amazon.com/Skinomi-TechSkin-Protector-Lifetime-Warranty/dp/B008FQ5JNO/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
The application process was frusterating, they only give you so much detergant/applicant spray to utilize. The directions call for a fine and even coat of the liquid across the adhesive side. It's not specific at all. The directions are a universal set of directions for all their screen protector products so it kind of confusing.
After all it was said and done, the directions called for me to wait 4-5 hours before usng my device. I gave it a good 8 just to be safe. I checked back the next morning and the screen protector was 'dry'.
So when I tried testing it out I immediately noticed that the screen protector greatly inhibits smoothness of touch and swipes. The friction is way too much for a tablet. It feels like taking cement glue and spreading it across your screen. I suppose a felt-tipped stylus would balance it out again but the human finger alone doesn't slide across the screen very well.
Another thing was that creases immediately started appearing on my device when I ran my finger across it. It left grooves and marks in the film. There are still imperfections and creases left, but the directions did say to give it a few days to let them disdappear.
I'm considering asking for a full refund and that I not waste my time even returning it. I want to protect my screen from micro-scrates and any other risk of dropping it (as I use the device for note taking for my security job) but if it's at the cost of inhibited screen functionality, then I don't think it's worth it.
So I'm bringing this up to ask you well knowledged tablet owners if I should expect this from every brand of screen protector?
Is getting a screen protector for a device with Gorilla Glass really necessary?
Is there soemthing I did wrong in the application?
What are some brands that you guys have found to be ideal?
Also I have another question. My tablet has a couple defects. One the power button gets stuck inside the tablet shell every once in a while and two the backlite on the tablet will flicker when the display brightness is at its lowest.
They sent me a replacement and I'm sending mine back. I'm afraid that they won't find the defects I called out and they'll end up charging me for a 16GB nexus.
What experience have you guys had with replacements and returns? What should I expect?

I put a full protection Skinomi for my girlfriend's iPhone. I was actually impressed with it compared to a Zagg. It does give it that 'uglier' look and 'rougher' feel, but it gets better after a few days. I would leave it on for at least another week to see if it gets better. Also, from what I remember, they tell you to add water to the solution if you run out, as there is enough solution residue left in the bottle once you're done to reuse it plenty of times. Also, as you apply it, constantly 'iron' it out with some type of card (credit/debit card, etc) and have a softer cloth to soak up some of the moisture on the edges. Just be careful not to get a lot of little dust under the edges.

Nonetheless, Amazon has a great return policy in case you're just unhappy with it.

I just finished putting on the Spigen Crystal Clear and aside from a couple small dust specks Im quite happy.

Visually, where there isnt a speck, you cant even tell its there. And where there is a speck, its only visible when the screen is black.

Touchwise, it feels great. Not grippy like zagg. Personally, I think it may even feel faster (less resistance) than the screen itself.

Found this on xda-developers.com. Works like a charm.
Your Nexus 7 has to be rooted for this to work.
  • Using a file explorer like Root Explorer navigate to the root/system folder and locate the build.prop file
  • Make a copy of the build.prop file just in case you need to restore it
    • tap the "Mount R/W" button at the top of the screen
    • long press the build.prop file and tap "Copy" from the pop up menu
    • tap the "Paste" button at the bottom of the screen
  • Open the build.prop file in the text editor
    • long press the build.prop file and tap "Open in Text Editor" from the pop up menu
  • Add this line of text to the end of the file
    • launcher.force_enable_rotation=true
  • Save and exit the text editor
    • tap the menu button on the top right and tap "Save and Exit" from the pop up menu
  • Reboot
  • ?
  • PROFIT!

Got a link to that thread..?

I don't know the original thread but I first came across it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=31675885&postcount=7

The guide I posted here is my own based off of the post I've linked. I'm sure there's a full thread on XDA somewhere for this fix.

anyone looking for a new game should try Bard's Tale. So far its a great adventure/exploration type rpg.

Far better than Horn was.

It looks like you've installed Windows 98.

Okay, finally got some time to mess around with the 7.
