    Default what happened to promise Asus leather case and dock?

    Seriously, this tablet has been out for what, 4 months now?
    I really want the docking station. Why make these 4 metal dot connections if they aren't used?

    It's a joke

    I think in general we are getting shafted on the accessory market. It's annoying to no end, especially when you look at the potential.

    Exactly! What are the 4 pins for if they aren't going to use them?

    I am hoping for a docking station because it would make for an awesome alarm clock next to my bed. But, that's what I thought about my Galaxy Nexus too.

    All I can think of is that Google is still working on it's play store. If they are close to getting it done I would understand not putting out stuff when you want to have it in your market like how amazon has it with the kindle. Something is messed up because it's been how long? we need and want accessories and Google is missing out of tons of money by not putting out the accessories that we want to buy.

    Google can't sell their stuff worth a darn, and they certainly don't know how to get the aftermarket to make anything to support their hardware. Google needs to get their act together and start acting like a real full service company. Software/hardware/accessories. Stop relying on the OEM's to make stuff, design it and have someone build it along with the accessories to support it, just like another company that does so well. One day they will realize that web advertising isn't the only way to make money.

    Or you could read the article and find that it was talking about it being available in Japan, not the US. Nothing has been said about the US.

    If you check on XDA, someone posted a link to a US outfit that is taking pre-orders for the docking station with a late December ship date. Kinda spendy tho, 40 bux about.

    Great. Can you please let us know if any cables, etc come with it, if it allows use of the microUSB port for Flash Memory while docked & pogo in use, and which functions are available from the Pogo pin dock itself (like data transfer, speakers, charging).

    Thanks in advance !!

    I notice that the linked vendor is now listing it as backordered, anyway. With luck there will be more popping up soon through various outlets.
