Google Brings New Nexus 4 Accessories to Play Store, Five Months Post-Launch
It seems that every time we talk about Google, the Play Store, and accessories for Nexus-series hardware, we’re talking about stuff showing up late. It happened with the Galaxy Nexus, we didn’t see the Nexus 7’s dock arrive until eight months after its launch, and it’s happening again with the Nexus 4. Google may have introduced the phone last fall, but only now are some pretty basic accessories finally becoming available for sale.
Google just added a handful of official Nexus 4 accessories to its Play Store offerings, and probably the most interesting (though still not very) is a wired headset with microphone. Its design doesn’t really scream “Nexus 4,” though, so the appeal of it being a fully-sanctioned offering is a bit lost. That sells for twenty dollars.
The other two are a bit odd: the AC adapter and USB cable that already ship with the Nexus 4. If you lost yours and a generic replacement won’t do, they can be had for $16 and $10, respectively. Honestly, both those prices are crazy Apple-level expensive, and seem particularly out of place when compared to the very affordable Nexus 4 itself.
