Nexus 7. Accessories and docks for Nexus devices have been a bit of a mystery in the past. We still never saw a few of those Galaxy Nexus options Samsung showed off, and we've been seeing mockups for the Nexus 7 for months. Today however it just got as official as ever. Take a peek below at the ASUS Nexus 7 dock.
ASUS are updating a few of their Transformer Pad tablets with a little software update. Earlier we mentioned the ASUS Padfone 2 received Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but for those already running Jelly Bean on their Transformer this update is rather minor. So far both the Transformer Pad TF300 and 700 Infinity have seen updates as of this afternoon.
ASUS has been pretty busy as of late updating all of their tablets to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and today they've started the rollout for one more slate. The impressive ASUS Padfone 2 smartphone tablet hybrid has just started receiving the over the air update this week. More details are available below for those interested.
Nexus 7 made by ASUS has leaked to the internet. We've seen reports and hints at a dock coming soon, but this appears to be rather legit. Official accessories have been pretty rare but thanks to ASUS Japan we now have another look at this upcoming docking station for our favorite Android tablet.
Nexus 7 tablet. After Google had its big media event where it announced all kinds of new stuff and the cheaper Nexus 7 was not announced, rumors on the device went pretty silent. Well, the rumors are back again, this time it comes from a GLbenchmark for a tablet called the "ME172V."
ASUS wants a slice of that pie for itself. iAfrica reports that ASUS is planning to launch a new 7-inch tablet dubbed the ME-172 early next year with a price tag that can challenge that of the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD. We might even see it revealed at CES 2013, which just so happens to be coming up quickly.
