Asus likes to take its sweet time releasing accessories for its devices, so we're just now seeing the official wireless and wired docks for the 2013 Nexus 7. Google released the updated Nexus charger a few months ago, but these are designed specifically for Asus' 7-inch slate.

Until now, Glass hasn't had manual brightness controls, and volume control was buried in a settings card at the very left end of the timeline.
