It had been rumoured that Asus was set to release a dock for the Nexus 7, however, as of now it has not turned up. In what may come as a clue that the release of the dock is near, a video of the dock has leaked online showing some of its characteristics.
From the video, we can see the dock getting unboxed and it shows that it is an official Asus product and not a third party accessory. The packaging shows that it is supported with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The official Nexus 7 dock sports the Asus and Nexus branding on both sides along with ports such as USB and a 3.5 mm audio jack in a bay. To connect the tablet to the dock, all one needs to do is place it on the pins located in the main bay. The docking station comes equipped with connectivity options such as a micro USB and a 3.5 mm audio jack. The docking station measures 65 x 65.1 x 219 mm for the height, width and depth respectively. The weight of this Nexus 7 accessory is 280 g. This matches up with features seen in the video above.
Asus claims that there is no need to update the device for it to be compatible with the docking station. This means that it will run just fine on the platform it had been launched with, which is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Now I Believe!…..Which queue do I stand in!…Im off!……LOL
Thanks Zemo, I’ve just written a post about this actually, but it looks like you’ve managed to glean some nice details from the video!
I guess it will be a 2013 launch now but I’ll also be in that queue!
