So if you're like me you've probably been starting to wonder if the official Nexus 7 dock that's been shown for months, yet never seems to be available...was finally real.  Well it looks like it is and the folks over at Droid-Life have given it the old video review treatment.  The verdict?  Well if you're looking for a well-constructed dock that offers easy charging via the pogo pins and the ability to send audio out for under 50 smackers then this might be right up your alley. 

While it would have been nice to feature an HDMI out, it's still a nice looking piece and while it's been reportedly priced at $40 at most places such as B&H Photo...you can save a little scratch if you shop around a bit such as at the link below, a store called 'Cost Captain' which has it for $34.99.   Now rumor is that you can also get free shipping through them by signing up for their 'premier service', but according to one customer this can be cancelled within a 14 day window.   So any takers?  Can you see yourself dropping your much loved Nexus 7 into one of these babies instead of the standard MicroUSB charger?

Video really didn't help me. I was hoping to use this for music and come away with struggling to get it to dock. Maybe a rush job on the video?

Agreed. I really want to buy this, but with the obvious docking issue and the fact that it doesnt even come with a power cord.

I have to wonder, speed of release vs quality?

Maybe he just got a bad one and others wont have the docking issue?  Look forward to reading more from others as they get it.

I've not seen an OEM dock that does come with a power supply...

I don't expect a cord. Not a deal breaker for me. I just would like a little more info on the audio and maybe someone reviewing it that isn't rushing through things like they are on Meth.
