After being teased for what must have seemed like an eternity to Android fans, the promised Asus Nexus 7 dock may finally be finding its way to U.S. and Europe stores soon.
“In the Netherlands, AndroidWorld.nl has word from ASUS Benelux that the dock will arrive in mid-January. Prices are speculated to be around €29.99. On the U.S. side B&H Photo, which opened preorders of the Nexus 7 dock back in December, is now showing an expected availability date of Jan. 10.”
U.S. prices for the dock reportedly start at $49.99.
The Asus Nexus 7 dock was first hinted at after the tablet’s Google I/O debut. What we can glean from the spec sheet above is that the dock will come witha micro USB connector, a 3.5mm speaker/headphone jack and will be relatively svelte at just 300g. The dock will also give you “better movie and photo viewing, browsing and email.”
Personally, I’m not really a fan of docks but it looks like this is one Asus Nexus 7 peripheral that has a lot of users excited. The good news is that they only have to wait for a few more weeks before they can get their hands on it.
