Nexus 7 dock

Since the release of the Nexus 7 there hasn't been all that many official accessories made available for it and those that have appeared, disappeared just as fast. There is clearly more on the way though as shown off in some leaked documents from Nordic Hardware.

As you may have noticed, there is pogo pins on the side of the Nexus 7. They were always assumed to accommodate a dock and with the leak we're now getting a look at said dock that has a microUSB charging port, a 3.5MM line out jack and is “perfectly-angled for better movie and photo viewing, browsing, and email.”  When can you get one? August 24th if the info is accurate for $50.

If you're not really feeling the current case offerings for the Nexus 7, no matter. There is apparently more on the way. A premium leather version of the official Nexus 7 cover is shown to be arriving August 31st for $39.99 in 4 different colors. That's all in addition to more color offerings for the original grey cover. If you want to see more, look below but of course given they are leaked documents, we'll have to wait and see what shows up when.

Are either cases magnetic? If not, I'm sure it can easily be modded, but still... why include the feature and not have the official cases support it?

Don't even have any accessories for my VZW GNex. LOL. I have the grey cover already. Want that dock, and will get the orange leather one if I can see it first. Don't know why but leather on the tablet feels nice.

Hopefully the leather case won't be as terrible as the current one. At least it has better colors. Also sad no HDMI out off the dock. Looking for accessories still.

I would be excited about these if I could receive a Nexus 7 from Google that actually works. Sent back my first one for a faulty screen and the replacement that arrived wouldn't even boot up. :(

I've really been hoping for a dock they sold for the Dell Duo. A JBL one with speakers built in. THe sound was great and it was soo convenient. I am willing to pay more to have one with speakers than a dock... connected to speakers. Save the counter space ya know. Perfect for next to the bed. Well, i hope someone does it because this dock is just too bland to pop $50 on, what's the point. $50 so it stands up straight while charging... meh. However, for $100 I would buy one with built in speakers in a heartbeat!!

By the way, has anyone else yet to get the 16gb yet? Mine was charged LAST week still hasnt' shipped!!

Like many others, all I want a a way for the Nexus 7 to have TV out to my TV, the Q does not cut it with just YouTube (let alone it costs more than the tablet anyways). Put some kind of compatible MHL device inside the dock and I will preorder it tomorrow.

Nomz, I hope that dock is nice. That's about the only thing that I'm bitter towards iDevices for: Kick ass accessories.

I like the dock. It fully supports the Nexus in landscape mode. The iPad $30 dock doesn't even have the width to support all of the base of the iPad in portrait mode. Wish it had some built-in speakers but I think they just put the 3.5mm connection there for headphones as well as speakers. Be nice if it had both but I still think it's decent.

Unless your rooted, the OTG cable won't work for a USB, and the N7 does not super MHL right now unless the dock acts a some sort of converter. Which makes me sad :(

Am I the only one hoping that a car dock is in the works? The Nexus 7 would make a very worthy GPS

Is it a "smart cover"? Because I have the Poetic Bluetooth keyboard case for the nexus 7, and it came out before the official case and is a smart cover.
