Audio dock for Google Nexus 7 coming next month

Audio dock for Google Nexus 7 coming next month
Here's something for Google Nexus 7 owners to look forward to. The ASUS Japan website reveals an upcoming audio docking station for the Google Nexus 7. The dock offers a USB port and a 3.5mm jack and the tablet plugs into the dock in landscape orientation. It will sell for 3,480 Japanese Yen which sounds like a lot of money, but is equivalent to just $41 USD.

The docking station will be offered for sale in the beginning of next month. After all, why miss out on the all important holiday sales? Meanwhile, the Google Play Store has all three variations of the tablet in stock, ready to ship in 3 to 5 days. That would be the 16GB model, the 32GB model and the 32GB Wi-Fi and cellular version. No sense in buying the dock without the tablet.

We have no word yet if the dock will be made available in the Google Play Store, but that would seem the obvious thing for ASUS and Google to do.

Samsung STILL has us wondering what the pogo contacts are for on the VZW Galaxy Nexus. Props to Asus.
