According to the slides from the Swedish website, ASUS plans on selling a Nexus 7 dock as well as two types of covers for Google's tablet
The Nexus 7 dock will be priced at around $50 and feature a micro-USB port and 3.5 millimeter audio jack. The micro-USB port will allow the Nexus 7 to recharge, making this accessory a great buy for those into viewing videos. It will be available for purchase starting August 24.
The ASUS Travel Cover will be made of thermoplastic polyurethane and cost $20. The released slide of the product describes it as a, "Tough yet soft snug-fitting case that protects your device." It will cover both the front and the back of the Nexus tablet. The travel cover comes in a variety of colors, unlike the similar case available at the Google Play store that only comes in dark grey.
The ASUS Premium Travel Cover, meanwhile, will be constructed from genuine leather. It will cost twice as much as the normal travel cover, but will come with a reinforced glass fiber backing that is meant to protect the tablet from drops. It will come out August 31.
The Google Nexus 7 launched in July to high demand and has been hard to find, with even the Google Play store stating an indefinite availability date on the 32GB model for a while. Both the 16GB and 32GB models will ship within 3-5 days now, according to the website.
If you are one of the few lucky ones to own this tablet, will you be picking up any of these accessories?
