Do the Alano for Nexus 7 cases have magnets to wake the device?

Yes it does.

Thanks,

How is that possible? Where the hell would they put it?

Do you have to kinda dig your finger in there to turn the power button on and mess around with the volume rocker?
Kinda looks that way.

The Red looks a lot brighter. What color liner is that though?

That is actually the orange with the darker blue liner. Both are way darker than I thought.

If you watch the video of the Alano Case for the iPad, you can see the smart sensor is working (screen turns on and off). The ItelliStand also looks like it uses magnets to hold it. Obviously they get those magnets in somehow (maybe sewn into the leather?)

Ok just ot mine really like the quality of the case looks really nice. Weight is 6 oz, it does feel quiet a bit heavier in my hands but it's a trade off for looks and protection. I have the full body invisible shield and it still was able to sit in their quiet nicely though very very snug. Where the buttons are I do feel like it's a bit harder and you have to dig your finger into there. I tried playing Pandora and it sounded great. It does sound a bit louder but not dramatic. The smart cover type feature works no problems, I did not get the intelistand so I can't speak on that. For the money I'm very happy I went with Portenzo though. I travel on the train daily and the ability to disguise it as a book offers another advantage.

Default Treegloo Case

I love the case!

I got black leather cover, with yellow cloth inside, natural accent wood with kinetic latch.

I love the outside cover and awesome inside cloth. It feels great in my hand. My nexus 7 fits perfectly, doesn't fall out when I shake vigorously and it's pretty easy to take out when needed. It's sleek, light, perfect for gaming, reading, and watching tv/movies with the kinetic latch.!

I've attached some pictures, if you have questions ask away.

They have amazing customer service too! They respond to emails late at night and I'm on the west coast (Treegloo is in Midwest). They messed up on the kinetic latch, they said it was shorter than expected. They overnighted shipped me the extended latch through Fedex Overnight. Will be getting it soon.

That's not a portenzo case.... That's a treegloo. I'm looking at the pics and I'm saying to myself what did they change the design??? Lol

This TreeGloo case looks really good. I like the cut of the wood better than the Portenzo. And, TreeGloo is actually based in TX, not the midwest.

you are absolutely right i didn't realize it. Makes me want the alano even more. Too bad it costs an arm and a leg.

Just curious did u get the buckram black or the faux leather? I'm so happy the sound is a bit louder. Awesome. Thanks for the pics!
