What the heck is it with Nexus-series devices and ridiculous delays before their official accessories surface? With last year’s Galaxy Nexus, we were keeping out eyes peeled for the eventual arrival of some its gear well into the spring. The Nexus 7 has been shipping since July, but key accessories have been MIA. Last month, word arrived that an official dock would soon be available, but details were sparse. We still have a lot of questions about the dock, especially when it comes to global availability, but thanks to a new unboxing video, we can check out the Nexus 7 dock in all its pogo-pin glory.
The dock takes advantage of the tablet’s pogo-pin support by allowing you to quickly and easily just drop it in place: no cables to connect, no dock connectors to align. Around back you get a micro USB port for connecting the dock to your PC, as well as audio output for convenient connection to a desktop stereo. There’s some prominent Nexus branding up front, with the ASUS logo hiding around back.
So far, though, we’ve only really heard about the dock in the context of a Japanese release. It shows as out-of-stock on the ASUS Japanese website, selling for the equivalent of about $42.
We’d love to see Google start selling this guy globally through the Play Store, but for now its future remains unclear.
