Nexus 7 Docking Station Said to Ship Within Two Weeks at $39.99

nexus 7 dock

According to The Verge, who spoke with a “reliable” source with knowledge of the Asus-made Nexus 7 dock, the company plans to ship the slow-to-market accessory to the U.S. within the next two weeks. It will drop in at the price of $39.99, something we have seen on retailer websites for a month or so now.

The price isn’t outlandish by any means, but the dock itself doesn’t do much. It has a mini USB port, an audio jack, and pins to charge the device when docked on its side.

    Im not a sad Nexus 7 geek whose got nothing better to do but!….my docking stations left The Netherlands yesterday and have arrived in brussels today …arriving to my home address by the end of the day Tuesday!…according to UP’s tracking! Woot and Horray!..fanfare of trumpets!…I’ve only been waiting a hundred years!…Now for the Nexus 7 premium leather case that sunk without trace back in August!

  • Stoker

    Well, it’s pretty clear why it was late and costs ten times more than the materials its made from… Can you just imagine all the R&D necessary to mold a piece of plastic that fits the Nexus base precisely? Then on top of that it needs a microUSB port? And it sports a matching logo, too? You better recognize!

    I hope they don’t get sued or something and have a court mandate delay this high tech wonder from us even longer.

    $40 for a piece of plastic that does nothing.

      my side pins are getting lonely so may get this to keep them company

    • mannyramirez

      People should stop buying things at these prices. We only encourage the big companies to rape us for things that cost like $5.00 in parts.

        yes you can stop people to spend money

          Never said or implied that. From the poorly written comment I would suggest for you to think before you type.

  • EvanTheGamer

    I’m buying one when available!

    • Trevor

      Me too, sick of trying to fit the charger in the USB port. It always seems to be harder than it should be to plug it in (“That’s what.” – She)

    as much as a thunderbolt cable

    I guess I came to expect more from Google in relationship to Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. They needed to support both of these with a suitable docking station from day one. I have had a Nexus 10 for over a month, and have partially overcome the problem another way, but it would be good to have a separate path for charging rather than through the one and only USB port. I think that Apple has supported their devices a lot better than Google. With all the Managers being fired at Apple and Microsoft for oversights to their product line, the same thing should happen to the Google Manager who has not followed through with accessories. As the old saying used to go, “That is a Hell of a Way to Run a Railroad”!!!! I would like to know who is responsible for the Nexus fiasco. Their head on a Stake would be appropriate!!! Ha! Ha! Just kidding, but it is presenting serious problems to Google’s future in Tablets. Need a new Product Manager to handle things? I would be glad to take a short term job to stir things up and make them happen to serve their loyal customers if they still have any!!!!

    This will look great next to my GNex dock! …said nobody, ever.

  • kfath1978

    Over priced and about 6 months late.

    • feztheforeigner

      I agree, but for some reason I’m still going to buy it…

  • Ryan Powell

    I classify myself as being crazy for admitting this but I want it despite its limited capabilities (“pre-ordered” through B&H). I love my Nexus 7 and prefer it without a case. This dock will be perfect right below my monitors while the N7 charges and I can get a little extra use out of my N7 without having to deal with plugging it in to charge or the hassle of a case that stands the device up. Again, I realize how silly it is to pay $40 for this thing but I love my Nexus 7 and think this dock is the best option for what I want.

  • Kyle Way

    meh

  • ddevito

    I still don’t see the appeal of this thing. My $15 Blurex case makes it a stand and still protects it.

    • MttFrog13

      True. And this is probably the reason that Asus doesn’t care much for bringing the dock to market.Most people use cases for their phones/tablets so docks would rarely be compatible. Same thing goes for phone specific car mounts. Everyone uses cases and then just buy universal car docks, so LG won’t care much for creating a nexus 4 car dock.

    It would have been nice to add in HDMI output but for 40 bucks it may still be work picking up.

    • jeesung

      the N7 has no HDMI capability

    I’ll believe it when I see it.

  • rals

    What does it do for $40?

    • http://twitter.com/aaronhurt Aaron Hurt

      Its a stand! Congrats! (yeah, a “little” overpriced)

      • http://twitter.com/Jubmasterflex Jubmasterflex

        A little? Markup on MOST accessories (whether it’s mobile, home audio and video, etc.) is pretty ridiculous, and this stand obviously continues that trend.

    • mannyramirez

      It brings you coffee and gives back rubs.

    • jeesung

      it let’s you use your POGO pins for something

  • http://twitter.com/GAndPT Trixie Lulamoon

    Can i charge + OTG with this?

    • Joseph Joffe

      That would make this dock VERY clutch. I, for one, would love to watch movies stored on a USB key, without draining off the battery of my N7

      • JoshGroff

        Isn’t there a splicer or something that’d let you do that?

  • knightsbore

    So where the hell is the nexus 10 dock…

    • thedonxr

      I want to know the same thing…

      I’ve had the 7 a day before it was officially released (thanks to some smooth talking at a local staples) and these docs are just becoming available… so i wouldn’t hold my breath… i don’t understand why these aren’t released at the same time as the products themselves… especially Nexus products which should be held to higher standard. Unfortunately, they are the worst with accessories.

    hope you meant a micro usb port
