Nexus 7 Dock Up for Pre-Order Again, Along With New Ship Date

The Nexus 7 dock is back up for pre-order at another retailer after making an appearance in a holiday video and selling out of the pre-order at another online store late last week.

Excalibur PC lists the Nexus 7 dock as backordered, but shoppers can add it to their cart and pre-order the dock for $39.99 plus $7 shipping, as spotted by Droid-Life.

The Nexus 7 dock includes a Micro USB charging port and a 3.5mm out connection to connect to a pair of headphones or speakers. The dock connects to the Nexus 7 through four small metal contact points on the edge of the tablet.

The Nexus 7 dock is available for pre-order again.

We’ve heard the Nexus 7 dock would be available in December for some time, but so far it is only up for pre-order at third-party retailers like B&H and Excalibur PC. We expect at some point it will join the rest fo the nexus 7 accessories in the Google Play store.


Excalibur estimates the Nexus 7 dock will ship by January 6, 2013, a week after the December 30th estimate from B&H photo. At the time of this writing the Nexus 7 dock is still available to pre-order by clicking on the backorder button, though it’s likely the dock will sell out just as fast as it did at B&H photo.

Shoppers can pre-order the Nexus 7 dock for an estimated delivery in January.

The dock will charge the Nexus 7 through these POGO pins, but it doesn’t give the Nexus 7 the ability to do video out to a monitor or HDTV.

The Nexus 7 dock also appeared in an Android holiday video alongside a Nexus 10 dock. Neither dock is officially available yet.

Nexus 7 owners that miss out on the pre-order may be in for a long wait as Google is notoriously slow to get devices and accessories back in stock for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7.

  1. So what would happen if the nexus 7 was charging on the dock and had the first wall charger connected as well? would it charge faster, break it, or do nothing.

  2. $47 for a plastic cradle that adds no new functionality to the Nexus 7? Really?? I think I’ll pass. Why will this be a hot seller? $12.95 would be more like it.

  3. ^ exactly’ the leathe self standing 25 dollar fill covering case is perfect. No HDMI, no micro SD. Add these and u have the #2 hands down device, shame.
