    Official Nexus 7 audio dock gets unboxed on Youtube | Android Central

    A fellow in Japan got his hands on it early. They need to hurry and get this one available in the US!

    Very encouraging, as we know:
    a) it exists
    b) the box and instructions have English on them

    If you are "connected" to Google in any way, please talk some sense into them and let them know that we deserve accessories ASAP.

    That has to be the most annoying audio track ever! Mute button needs to be pressed first.

    What are the chances that this will only work with the current generation N7 and not next year's model? Pretty good, I'd suspect.

    Hate to be a buzz kill here but I will wait until I see some actual specifications.
    If all it does is send power and audio through the pogo pins, I have a wonderful Blurex case that props up my N7 for $14.99.
    If it adds additional microUSB functionality like miracast mirroring or better OTG support, then it will be totally worth it.

    I guess the ease of docking the pogo vs plugging in a microUSB cable is a draw, but not enough to make my christmas.

    EDIT: Just debating myself here, but having the dock ported to my home stereo via the 3.5mm audio jack would be a convenient set up.

    For this, I would be willing to take my N7 out of its wonderful (*)Speck case.

    What "next year's model"?

    Miracast has nothing to do with the microUSB (that's kind of the whole point of miracast - it's wireless.) I'd say OTG support is likely, though.

    The way I look at it, one of the issues I have using OTG is that you can't charge at the same time. So, I have to stop watching videos to recharge. With the dock, it will charge via the pogo pins, so I can watch videos from a flash drive and not worry about running out of battery.

    There is a BIG plus for the BluRex case. The N7 will not have to be removed to place it on the dock.

    Keep in mind there is a chance that the 2 connectors (pogo & microUSB) are on the same controller, and it may only support using one or the other, not both, at any given time. We will have to see. That would be an excellent thing for OTG use if it does let you use both.

    I don't see how OTG will work with just 4 pins on the pogo pin port.

    I'd be happy with charging and audio in the dock.

    Oh, and yes, that sound track is utterly ridiculous. Plus, I would have liked to see the doc actually in use. It does look like a 3.5mm jack on the back.

    Googling around, it looks like there are reports that this expected to ship this week. Anyone have any other reliable information?
