While most of us would agree that Google and Asus did a pretty good job with their 2013 edition of the Nexus 7 tablet, they sure have taken their sweet time in getting any kind of official docking solution into the Play Store. We're happy to say that wait has ended and we've now got two interesting, albeit pricey options if you're looking for some 'official' dock and charging love.
First up is the official Nexus 7 2013 wireless charging stand model #PW100. Designed with a cool pyramid-like design it takes advantage of the wireless Qi capability in your Nexus 7 and allows you to charge your tablet by placing your tab in a landscape position wire-free with or without cover. There's an LED to tell you when it's fully charged. It's a little unclear if the charging dock will work in portrait orientation as well. We'll probably have to wait until the first units are reviewed to tell. Pricing is $90, which definitely makes this one of the pricier charging stations we've seen...but hey if you want the 'official' one you might want to go for it.
Next up is the Asus Dock for Nexus 7 2013, which lets you position your Nexus 7 in either portrait or landscape orientation and charge your tablet while plugged into the MicroUSB connector. It also lets your stream video via HDMI to your tv. The dock is priced at around $80 on Ebay right now, although the 'list' price is around $50. We've provided links below if you want to grab either of these new accessories as they're not showing up in the Play Store just yet.
