I Think Google Just Killed Off the Official Nexus 7 Dock

nexus 7 dock

Google is currently removing the Nexus 7 Dock from its Google Play store pages, leaving the landing page for the accessory to say only that it “is not available in your country.” Seems like they are killing it off for good. We see them make Play store page changes all of the time, but this is a blatant removal from Nexus 7 pages, not a change in shipping status.

Does this mean that a new Nexus 7 is imminent? Not really. Rumors have pegged a new N7 for a July release, but an accessory disappearing is not necessarily a sign of that happening.

If you still want one, Amazon appears to have them in stock.

    The nexus 7 official dock is a great product. Touch charging (can’t remember the proper name) is great and it makes the nexus 7 sit nicely on the bedside table

  • colin

    Its still available in canada

  • Bionic

    When i first read this i read it as “google just killed the 7 inch cockk” and I was like wtf?

    • TylerChappell

      My life would be over if that ever happened.

    Sounds like the new Nexus 7, whenever it comes out, won’t be compatible with the current docking system, which means one of two things; there either that there won’t be a mini usb port on the bottom of the device, or it won’t be a mini-usb at all.

    I’m just hoping they announce the specifications soon so I can finally decide between the 7 and the MeMo 7HD, this is getting kind of ridiculous.

  • Brandon Golway

    WHAT?!

  • moe6

    It’s Samsung. If it’s an accessory that didn’t come out within a month or two or soft-launched with the device itself, it’ll never come out.

    I remember longingly wishing for the Galaxy Nexus car dock to and then I got fed up of waiting and upgraded to the N4 as even when it did finally get released, there were so few and hard to get without paying out the butt for it

  • John Motschenbacher

    do i want the official dock…absolutely….is it worth 29.99….never.

    • TylerChappell

      It is if your mom or grandma have a Nexus 7 and you want to show them how to replace their ol’ fashion alarm clock. I paid too much for mine, when they first became available on eBay. $47. But I’ve used it ever since so it has gotten its use. $30 isn’t terribly unreasonable, but they should at least include a microUSB cable or charger with it.

    Hypebeat. Psh.

  • Rabid Rotty

    Good thing I bought mine at London drugs

  • 4n1m4L

    Just don’t let it be made by samsung

    • Tyler Durden

      Yeah because Samsung made the N7 /s

      • TylerChappell

        I think he is merely saying don’t let Samsung ever make the new Nexus 7 or else the wait of 6 months for accessories would be indefinite instead.

        • Kaitensatsuma

          third parties tend to fill those needs fairly well though.

  • Justtyn Hutcheson

    Though you’ll have to wait for 6 months for the Upgrade official dock to appear :-(

  • zombiewolf115

    wait so ik this is nexus 7 but. how long did it take for u guy to get the nexus 4 ?white edition to be exact

  • George Fayad

    Funny thing is, I have one and have yet to use it. About 2 days before it arrived, I lent my N7 to my brother-in-law and still haven’t picked it back up from his house haha

  • Alex Goings

    I’m still waiting for a 3-pin dock for my VZW galaxy nexus…

    • 4n1m4L

      You didn’t jump on it when it was $90?

    • Cory_S

      I was actually looking for one yesterday because my wife goes through USB charging cables like a fat kid through cake.

      • Alex Goings

        I have a charger for each place I may need to use one. I lost far too many.
        I have one for each location:
        -Next to my bed
        -Near my TV
        -Near my xbox (Different TV)
        -Pluged into my computer
        -In my car
        -One for my cubicle at work.
        -And one for when I stay other places

        • Cory_S

          I use too, but my wife is very hard on the cables. After about a week they start doing that only charging if held just right thing after she uses them. Her next phone WILL have wireless charging.

          • LionStone

            Mine too…she’s getting my DNA when I get something else ;)

        • LionStone

          “-And one for when I stay other places” means he has one in his slut bag hehe ;)

        • TylerChappell

          lol, this is what I started doing. Rather than leaving them lying around somewhere unused, I just plug my extra chargers into available outlets in random locations throughout my house. LET THERE BE NO ROOM WITHOUT A MICROUSB CHARGER,MUEHEHEHE

      • Go Hawkeyes

        Live around Kansas City? I have a drawer with at least 20 of them that won’t be used any time soon. My family buys too many new Android devices.

        • Cory_S

          Haha no, but my brother-in-law does, perhaps he could grab them from you before his next trip to Texas haha.

      • michael arazan

        My nexus 7 charging cord broke too just 6 months after purchase, never damaged or bent, plastic fell off exposing the connector with the copper underneath, put the plastic back over it and then it died. never had a charge cable stop working, still use my motorola usb charge cable from my D1

  • Andrew Pritykin

    They need to learn to release accessories properly with each device when they come out. Still waiting for the Nexus 10 dock and pogo charger

  • JoshGroff

    Those are some nasty teeth. O-o

    • mjmedstarved

      It’s a grill yo!

  • Illinipoke

    I just ordered me a pogo charger, I’m going to try to make a wooden one. Ought to be interesting. I wonder if anyone would buy one if I’m actually successful at making it look decent? hmmmmmm

    Here is a 3rd party plastic one btw.

    • JoshGroff

      A wooden dock, I’m sure there’s a few that would be interested, myself included. (Custom made docks, maybe let people choose the type of wood?)

      • Cory_S

        Brazilian Cherry would be beautiful.

        • Illinipoke

          Thanks guys, I’ll give it a shot. Probably end up being a disaster but will be a fun disaster. Biggest problem are the dang pogo chargers alone are pricey.

          • javier rodriguez

            maybe you can just make the wooden base, and have the cable snap into place?

  • Tyler Durden

    Google releasing accessories day one? That’s when you know the apocalypse is upon us.

    • http://www.youtube.com/kimirPORTALS kimir

      If they ever do, they’ll be lost in transit.

  • Tyler Durden

    Not surprising, considering how expensive it is when you can make a cheaper one at home.

  • Shane Redman

    So hope you are correct, sir.

    Seriously.

  • Kyle Miller

    Duck this Fock!

  • Nexus_FrEak

    Got mine!!! Love that thing!
