Leaked Nexus 7 accessory lineup, POGO dock, premium leather case and covers coming soon
We haven’t seen much news on the accessory front from for the Nexus 7 since the tablet launched earlier this month. In fact, it’s been hard to keep the official covers from the Google Play store in stock. According to Nordic Hardware, more accessories for Google’s first Nexus tablet are coming August, 24th.
The Nexus 7 comes with 4 pogo pins on the side. We’ve always assumed they were more than just eye candy, that eventually the Nexus 7 would get a dock to accommodate them. According to the leaked slides, you’ll be able to pick a dock up for $49.99 MSRP. The leaked info also shows a 3.5mm speaker line out and a microUSB port for charging. The dock is said to be “perfectly-angled for better movie and photo viewing, browsing, and email.” Sadly, nothing about HDMI was mentioned at this time.
If you weren’t a fan of the grey TPU cases supplied by Google on the Play Store or were having a rough time grabbing one as they were out of stock, you’ll soon have another option. Coming August 31st, you’ll be able to pick up a premium leather case, available in 4 stylish colors for an MSRP of $39.99. For $16.99 you can grab an ASUS travel cover in one of 6 stylish colors, complete with the official Nexus logo.
And last but not least, if you’re into world traveling, ASUS has plans to release a travel charger kit for an MSRP of $24.99. The additional chargers support the UK, EU, AU, TW, Canada, and the USA.
