n7 dock

It's been five months since the Nexus 7 went on sale, and just about as long since eager Android fans have been waiting to get their hands on official accessories. We've seen the first-party Asus dock show up time and again in various overseas web stores, but never actually go on sale. The wait might soon be over, at least for US residents: B&H Photo & Video has put up an online pre-order for the Pogo Pin dock for $39.99.

Don't start stuffing those stockings yet, Nexus 7 owners. There's no indication of when sales will actually begin, and we've been denied this particular dock many times before. It's possible that the ASUS dock will hit the Play Store before shipping from any third party, pre-order or not. But if you've been waiting so long that you're screaming "shut up and take my money", well, now you've got someone to give it to.

Update: The listing was updated with a tentative December 30th availability date.

    Based on my experience with the Galaxy Nexus, I'm confident in saying you'll never get this. Google sucks with accessories. And don't blame the OEM--They own the nexus brand.

      I won't blame the OEMs, because Samsung, ASUS, and LG Nexus products are all lagging in the accessory department, but why would Google have any more control over the release of accessories than they would over the release of the phones/tablets themselves? Owning the Nexus brand has nothing to do with that.

    Well I did want a Nexus 7 one, but now I want a Nexus 10 one. I guess in about 5 months+ I might be tricked into thinking it might be available. How hard is it to make a dock? I guess by then I'll have a tv or a dongle that supports miracast, and I'll care less about docks.

    This looks like such a waste of $40.It doesnt do anything more than hold tablet and charge it.no keyboard,usb port nothing.Heck i've got a tablet stand,and i can plug in charger and headphones or ext.speakers.

      Except it functions as the perfect accessory for making your Nexus 7 into a elegant looking alarm clock in which you can pleasantly enjoy the Daydream feature.
