You might remember that back in December, we showed you that an audio docking station was beeing prepared
for the Google Nexus 7
. News about the tablet had come from the ASUS Japan web site and revealed that the dock would include a USB port
and a 3.5mm earphone jack
for the tablet, which would fit into the docking station in landscape mode. The site had the device priced at the Japanese Yen equivalent of $41 USD.
B&H is selling the dock for $39.99 in the states, before shipping costs
Well, here it is over one month later and the Google Nexus 7 audio docking station is now listed on the ASUS Shop in the U.K. You can buy the accessory now for £49.98 ($80.35 USD). That price doesn't include the £6.00 shipping charge which brings the cost up to £55.98 ($90 USD). And you might have to tack on some tax as well. Besides the USB port and the earphone jack, the docking station is angled to provide you with the best view
of your tablet's screen to watch movies, video, read email and view web sites. The docking station is shipped 2 weeks after your funds are received.
For those in the states who feel that those prices seem steep in U.S. Dollars, a company called B&H Photo was taking pre-orders of the audio docking station back in December
for $39.99. B&H is still accepting pre-orders of the dock for the same price and the good news is that it is expected to start shipping this Friday! We do have to let you know that the price does not include shipping.
