Google Asus Nexus 7 to Get a Cover and Docking Station

By - Source: via DroidLife | B 10 comments

August brings new Nexus 7 accessories from Asus.

It's been a couple of weeks since the Nexus 7 was finally launched but we're still short a few accessories for the device. Today brings us photos of some stuff Asus is apparently working on launching later this month. DroidLife points to some leaked slides obtained by Nordic Hardware that show a travel dock as well as a couple of cases.

The slides mention the rubberized travel cover already available in the Google Play store as well as a sleek-looking leather version of the same case. Though the rubber version is available in six colours, the leather model will only be available in four. It will also set you back twice as much. The rubberized travel cover is currently priced at £19.99, while the leather version is expected to launch later this month with a $39.99 price tag.

 

The dock features a wedge-shaped design (which Asus says will angle your Nexus 7 at just the right angle for watching movies), and also packs a USB port, a 3.5mm speaker output, and a $49.99 price tag.

Availability for these new accessories is August 24 (dock) and August 31 (leather case). We assume they'll be available via the Play Store when the time comes.

    Nice! I am definitely buying the docking station.

    On the flip side. How long until Apple sues them for some type of patent infringement on a desperation to stop the sales of the docking station, since they know there future is grim and they can't keep up with Android.

    This would make for a GOOD digital photo frame as well(keep the dock in the living room :)  ). I could never stand that even the most expensive photo frames on the market seem to have cheap TN screens that loose all the look at any angle.

    Nexus 7 is unavailable to 92% of the population on Earth. How about selling it in some other countries, too?

    So... The rubber cover is GBP20, while the leather cover is USD40?

    That's not much of a difference, unless it's a typo.

    Please rename this site to "Tom's Tablets" because I feel like that's almost all I read about on here.

    I got a rooCase off amazon, I really like it. I can also prop it up horizontally and vertically. Now if only this dock had some sort of USB to HDMI output...

    It will be worth a lot less than $200 by the time they get around to it.
