Update: Well, it looks like the Nexus 7 dock isn't in stock after all. Whether the dock sold out at lightning speed or was never actually available (despite all appearances) is unclear, but B&H appears to have begun sending out a batch of "we regret to inform you" emails regarding the hotly anticipated accessory:

Original Post: Back in December, the official Nexus 7 dock went up for pre-order over at B&H with a tentative availability date of December 30th. While they may have missed that mark, it looks like the wait is over and the dock is officially in stock as of earlier today.

Just like before, it'll set you back a forty spot, but that's a small price to pay to finally get to use those pogo pins. There's a good chance that it will sell out pretty quickly, so if your Nexus experience simply can't be complete without a dock for the beloved seven-incher, you better head to the link below before they're gone.

[B&H; Thanks, Jeff!]

    Nope, not for that price.

      If they came out with a POGO N10 one that integrated audio as well as charging I would be on that like a fat kid on cake, even for that price.

        Seriously. Why are there zero accessories available for us to buy for the N10?

          It came later right? They are JUST getting around to the stuff for the N7 so I am hopeful. I got the poetic case to protect it when traveling but I would like that flip cover for just around town. And a dock would be great as well, love to save wear on the USB port for charging.

          Although the realist in me knows its Samsung, and they did an absolute shit job of supporting the GNex. I hope they never get a Nexus device again.

    And they are gone...

  • Joshua Dudash

    "New Item, not available yet" still showing up for me..

  • KitN

    I ordered more than 2 hours ago yet I got that dreaded email. I have a feeling the dock was never in stock to begin with...

  • kbo

    Could someone tell me what the hype is about concerning these docks? What's so good about them and the pogo pins?

    • http://twitter.com/ao9news andy o

      Not much. It's actually pretty expensive for what it is. The 4 pins only do charging and stereo audio output. Not even syncing. Apple gets crap for their prices, but their official docks do more and cost less. Oh, and are actually on sale.

      Well, they hold the tablet up as a display. Unlike a folding case (which probably costs $20 anyway) they also use a POGO pin interface to simultaneously charge and retrieve audio from the device.

      So, you could have the tablet running as a desk clock or video screen and instantly (no cables to unplug) pick it up and use it as a tablet. Not only that but its saving wear and tear on your USB and headphone plugs, which have a tendency to wear out over time from repeated uses.

      As for price, yeah it might be a bit expensive but not outrageous. If it were just a stand for $40 (like the verizon "Car mount" for the GNex) then its a rip off. But it isnt. Its a stand, audio output and charger all in one. If you bought those separately they would be more money and be worse at the function than this. Also, its $40. Seriously that much? If that is breaking the bank then why do you have something fluff like a tablet in the first place?

    BEST ALARM CLOCK EVER

    I ordered two minutes after the in stock notification was sent. I my order states my card was charged and I have not received the dreaded email. Maybe I'm lucky.

    I called B&H on the 17th, and the customer service rep called the distributor and received a shipping confirmation number from them. The shipment was supposed to come in on Friday, but because of the holiday and the weekend, they might not ship it until Tuesday (the 22nd). He let me place an order on the 17th when it was still showing as out of stock. By the time AP posted, I'm guessing their stock was nearly gone. I didn't get the dreaded email, but I also didn't get a shipped email yet. Probably get one tomorrow, if they truly had stock. You can search for the part number and find other websites listing it.

    • Eric Jones

      I just got my shipping email, so they had at least one in stock.

        Same here.
