Accessory options for the Nexus 7 is so far limited to the official case sold in Google Play and a few third party protectors designed for the similarly sized Amazon Kindle Fire. Google’s co-branded tablet will soon get more customized if a pair of leaked slides are to be believed.

Nordic Hardware posted images showing a media dock, ASUS Premium cover, and Travel cover cases. The post has since been deleted “At the request” of ASUS, but not before the images were spotted and saved at other websites.

The Premium cover offers a wraparound case with leather on the front and reinforced glass fiber on the rear to protect the tablet from drops. The case will sell for $39.99 and be released August 31. The Travel case is identical to the thermoplastic polyurethane case sold in the Google Play store. It provides a soft matte case in six colors for $19.99.

The Nexus Dock is a black media dock that charges the tablet using micro USB. The dock features a 3.5 mm port to connect to speakers and a connector that angles the Nexus 7 to view media or other apps. The leaked slides show a $49.99 price and August 24 release date. If these dates and prices prove real, you might have some new accessories to pick-up soon.
