Where Did the $90 Nexus Pogo Dock Go?
Earlier in the week, I posted that the Galaxy Nexus finally had a pogo dock available, and outlined the $90 price and the fact that the dock was backordered. The guys over at Android Central did a hands on and there is still some debate as to if the price is too high, but there is no denying the demand is there.
There were problems with the placement of the power button. Basically when you place the phone in your new shiny dock, you can't get to the power button, so you can't turn off the screen. Is this the reason that the dock is not available anymore from the Samsung website? Or is the dock heading to Verizon now and Big Red asked Samsung not to sell the dock through their own website?
Considering that all the other accessories are sold by Verizon and Samsung, that wouldn't really seem to be case here, but there is something up.
If Samsung responds to my email, I will update this post with more information.
*Looks like the dock is pulled until the 4.0.4 update is official for the GNex. The update fixes the issues that most people are having with the dock. Sounds like this is a little bit of miscommunication between Google and Samsung.
