Official Asus Nexus 7 dock gets hands-on treatment right before release
The Nexus 7 grabbed our best tablet award for the year for not just because its price starts from $200, but also because it is indeed a great tablet. But it is still a bit lacking in accessories when you compare it to Apple’s similar offerings. One thing that will change that is the official audio dock for the Nexus 7, coming soon from Asus itself.

The docking station/audio dock now appears in a full hands-on demo on YouTube, and while we don’t have any news except for what you can see, it would definitely make for a great companion to the compact tablet.

The case is apparently sold in a store called Yodobashi Camera somewhere in Japan, and the person who bought it got a chance to purchase it a day prior to mass release.

Sadly, it’s not yet clear whether it will come to the United States, and outside of Asia. It’s not mentioned anywhere on the official Asus America webpage. We’d keep our fingers crossed, though.

I hate the industry today. All they do is troll and squbble and cant do anything right. Take this for example, how hard would it be to come up with a industry standard thet would describe one dock to rule them you buy one dock made by asus and you can use it for your nexus 7, nexus 10 and msoft surface? The way things are you cant use the same one for n7 and n10! Idiotic imho. Things could be much simpler...

It doesn't come with an adapter so im assume that we would be using the adapter that comes with our nexus7...but i don't think that the adapter is needed to be plug in while using this..cause it would be crazy for asus to make a portable device(nexus7) which have a dock which is not portable..the dock should either have a battery of it's own or get it's source from the nexus7..otherwise the dock would be a fail...

I imagine that would've made everything kind of top heavy.
