Over the weekend it appears that Asus in Japan has let slip some information in regards to a dock accessory for the Nexus 7 which we first saw at the end of July. The dock accessory is showing up on the Asus Japan accessory store for a price of 3,480 Yen which equates to just over $40AUD minus shipping.
The existence and imminent release of the dock has been hinted at on the Australian Facebook page in reply to some persistent commentors asking about the accessory. This was posted in reply to a customer asking about docks and keyboards for the Nexus 7
Docking accessories for the Nexus 7 are coming, No firm price and date can be announced yet.
And then this reply was posted soon after as well :
Date of arrival of the Nexus 7 docks in Australia isn’t confirmed yet. Stay tuned!
So it appears that Asus Australia is certainly getting them here but has no details to share on when and how much. When we approached Asus Australia about the availability of the docks in Australia or if they would sell the accessory through their own on-line accessory store which we saw hinted at back in August, they advised that they have nothing to add to the discussion.
I know I would be interested in a dock accessory but with no details forthcoming, perhaps I may just go and grab a cheap one from Aldi on Wednesday.
What about you guys, are you still interested in a dock accessory for the Nexus 7?
