Default Why no 3rd party book covers?

I just picked up a Nexus 10, and wanted to get a tri-fold book cover for it. But to my surprise, they don't exist.

In fact, I cant find any book covers for this device besides the official one:
https://play.google.com/store/device...ver_gray&hl=en

Why have no 3rd party case makers taken advantage of the removal back, and made more book covers for this device?

Sadly, because this tablet has not been a sales-breaker. In fact, there are rumours that say that Google will not keep the full size format in next gen.
Apart from the official one, you can check this page, where you can see some options, and then search them on amazon/ebay:

Thumbs up eBay!!

Hiya,
I just bought my nexus 10 and while waiting for delivery I went on eBay to get a book cover..
Quite a few from U.S. suppliers, Quality makes, delivery makes it a tad expensive for us down under,
Several from the U.K. quite cheap, and the usual offerings from Hong Kong and Mainland China.
I bought from the U.K. cause mail from China takes wayyyy to long and things get lost...
( an sometimes thing's arrive safely and reasonably within time.) But you never know..
So hop on EBay if its available to you, or Amazon probably have them to.
Kogan's also have nice book covers for N10, $25...
Go check them out...
Love in my N10, my old TF201 just had to be replaced...get on it

The 3rd party ones are bulky and heavy. I think I might bite the bullet and get the official one even though I can only find it in red and it doesn't double as a stand :/

I bought this a year ago and absolutely love it. Unfortunately I waited about 3 weeks for it to be shipped and haven't seen them for sale lately. If you can find one I highly recommend it. http://www.ebay.com/itm/YOOBAO-Slim-...-/261178402054

Less than 1 lb I would guess. I just took it off and it barely weighs anything.

I would look at this. Easily my favorite case.

http://www.amazon.com/Poetic-SLIMLIN...mline+nexus+10

This is the one I picked up. Also come in a number of colors and designs but very thin and functions just like the google branded one without the lack of back protection

I got bored of waiting and picked official one. All this poetic/moko/yoobao seems to be the same crap for me, only 3 models: the trifold one, the tristand and the one with a holster.
