Nexus 7 dock, charger and leather cover leaked

And they are quite pricey

Google’s Nexus 7 tablet is about to get a few accessories, but given their price we are not sure there will be too many takers.

Nordic Hardware has stumbled upon the first images of the Nexus 7 dock and “premium leather” case. The charging dock is a straightforward affair, with a 3.5mm audio jack and micro USB connector but there’s no HDMI. It is priced at $49 and should appear on August 24.

The leather cover is also expected to ship by the end of the month and it’s priced at $39. It does not appear to be a smart cover, although the Nexus 7 features a magnet in the right side of the bezel.  The alternative is the standard $19 polymer case.

Google will also offer 10-watt USB chargers for the Nexus, priced at $24. This could be an interesting pick for heavy users, as the standard charger takes forever to juice up the Nexus.

All in all we can’t say we are impressed. The Nexus 7 is supposed to be a dirt cheap piece of kit and the accessories seem a tad too pricey for a $199 tablet.
