Nexus 7 docking station going on sale this month for $40

The Nexus 7 tablet was among the first to bring a no-compromise experience down to very, very affordable price levels and right now at CES 2013 we are starting to see the effect of this and how Android is pushing the envelope further with various manufacturers announcing even more affordable tablets.

But the original Nexus 7 is still one of the most popular tablets out there and good news is it will finally get an official docking station made by Asus and it’s going on sale in the next two weeks. The price is set at $39.99 and we are already seeing it hit the listings on retailers such as B&H where the release date is January 16th.

The dock itself has a microUSB port and a 3.5mm jack so you can charge it and hook it up to your sound system while it’s docked.

I really don't see the point of this dock...

Am I missing something? why isn't there a video out plug or USB ports, or SD slot...

This is not attractive for a company that does the best docks for tablets, phones and laptops...

For $40, it is.

$40? Why so much? Did they have to pay Apple licensing fees?

$40 to replicate ports already found on the tablet... and just to prop it up?

For me that's debatable... but I can't argue that much, I dont have the Nexus 7 to properly comment whether this dock is justifiable...

Anyway if I had a tablet, I wouldn't spend 40 bucks on this... I rather buy a bunch of paid apps, or a case, or bluetooth controller, or a wireless keyboard...

But this does not extend the functionality of a tablet so much... maybe if they were asking $ 20

Agreed. I have a Nexus 7 and could see paying $19.99 max for this docking station

Although the Nexus Dock is appealing, I bought a fake leather case/bluetooth detachable keyboard/ stylus holder $25 on overstock.
