We’ve heard so much about the official Nexus 7 dock leading up to today, but have yet to receive official word from Google regarding its status of availability. At least one retailer looks to have some desirable information, however, as B&H Photo has updated its listing to show an “expected” availability date of January 10th.

Unfortunately the wording leaves room for possible delays, but should all the stars align and should the universe be in a favor-granting mood we should be seeing these starting to ship at some point next week. Priced at $40, the official dock uses the Nexus 7’s triple pin connector for data transmission and charging. The dock itself will feature a 3.5mm audio out jack and a microUSB port for those very reasons.

It’s nothing amazing, but there’s nothing like getting an official accessory that was intricately designed for your device. Google still doesn’t acknowledge its existence in the Google Play Store strangely enough, but it’s no doubt coming and we’ll be mighty glad once it arrives. Head to B&H to sign up to be notified when it’s available.

[thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
