Just because I, personally, don’t see the need for docks (or even tablets for that matter), doesn’t mean that the rest of you don’t find them useful. In fact, I’ve seen a lot of discussion about docks with just about every major Android release, the Nexus 7 being no exception. Those of you that can’t stand another minute without a dock to nestle your Nexus 7 can rest easy, ASUS has finally cooked one up with your name on it. Well, actually it has their name on it, but you know what I mean.

We saw an early glimpse of the cradle many months ago and it looks like all those many months of R&D have finally come to fruition — that is, if you speak Japanese. The dock popped up on ASUS Japan’s website, where it will be available for sale sometime this month for 3,480 yen (around $42.23). No word if or when we can expect this to come stateside, but hopefully that Nexus branding means we’ll see it come to the Play Store before long. Anyone feenin’ for a Nexus 7 dock?
