    Hmmm, I don't see one thing that would induce me to pay $40 for that thing. If I want my N7 propped up while charging or hooked up to my computer, I'll just use my $15 prop up case. Now, if it had a keyboard or built in speakers, maybe.

    Silly question. It's simply the opposite of an impure order.

    I wouldn't pay $40 for this either! If it had a way to use HDMI with the N7, then I would definitely go for it.

    Seriously, I'm really interested in what it is that makes you even consider buying one of those at any price? I'm not being a smart a**, I just wonder if there's some advantage to it that I'm missing.

    Yes, we knew that. But we try to never miss an opportunity to laugh at how our keyboards auto correct in ways we never intended! I see you fixed it, though, so our fun has ended.

    Speaking only for myself, I'm primarily interested in it to reduce wear and potential damage to the USB port for charging. Having had one device die because the charging port came loose from the board, it worries me. Otherwise, being able to leave a set of speakers plugged into the dock is just a convenience issue.

    Do I think it's overpriced? Certainly. But if I can manage to get one, it'll give me some peace of mind.

    Plus it'll be a lot more convenient to just drop it into a bedside cradle, than to get my tired old eyes to focus on a micro-USB plug in the middle of the night.

    As others have said, easier to just drop into the cradle and no cable to plug in - a pain since i need to put my reading glasses on to see the microUSB orientation. And as others have said, this always causes mechanical wear and tear on the port. Using the Pogo pins does not. There is also the possibility that using the Pogo port would allow continued microUSB use for other purposes like my hub with keyboard, mouse and USB stick plugged in. May or may not be possible.... nobody seems sure about this.

    Do we know if the docking USB port will do data?.. or just charging?

    Just saw a Bluetooth Logitech tablet keyboard at Walmart. The case it comes with folds up as a stand to hold a tablet. I didn't see a price

    There seems to be no consensus, mathelm. Since nobody has had one to test out, it's an unknown. Some folks messing with home made Pogo pin chargers over at XDA noticed that charging changed microUSB data-connect states.... We will have to wait to see if Asus made the circuits required to allow simultaneous charging and sound output via pogo and data via microUSB.

    Was hopping for it to be like a laptop dock, at least as far as the usb port on it being for data also. But them I thought, 4 pins equals a +voltage, Left audio, Right audio and a common ground....

    Oh well, there's always rooting and bluetooth...

    Either way, it appears that we will know in less than a month. the fact that the official dock is 40 bux makes it easier to wait, but I would expect some knockoffs to appear quickly once the official dock can be "copied".

    I don't think nexus 7 can do HDMI at least not through the pogo connectors.
