Asus announces wired and wireless docks for Nexus 7, $50 and $90 respectively
Even though the Nexus 7 (2013) was announced way back in July now, Asus has just released an official wireless and wired dock for Google’s popular 7-inch tablet.
Although many of you have probably have picked up third-party dock already, those that have held out waiting for an Asus-made Nexus 7 dock can now pick up the wireless model from Amazon and a few other retailers. There’s also a wired version, though it doesn’t seem to be available anywhere yet.
The new docks have their own distinct designs, with the wireless above and the wired model seen below. While both of the docks are fairly attractive looking, neither of them come cheap. The former is $90, while the latter comes in at $50.
Paying these prices for official docks might be a little hard to swallow, especially when you consider that many 3rd party wired docks are only around $20-$30, and you can find wireless 3rd party docks somewhere around the $50-$60 mark. Of course, there’s something to be said for the quality and reliability that usually come from 1st party accessories.
What do you think, anyone planning on picking up an official wired or wireless dock?
