Google Play Store Now Selling Device Accessories to U.S. Residents

Google today announced that they plan to sell accessories alongside their respective devices in the Google Play Store. Yep that’s right, you guessed it, that means HSPA+ (GSM) Galaxy Nexus accessories at this time only. Too bad it took over six months for the official accessories to show up but I guess now is better than never. One thing worth mentioning, though. You must reside in U.S. in order to see the available accessories otherwise you will get the “We’re sorry, the document you requested is not available in your country,” message.

Currently available is the Vehicle Dock and Landscape dock, both of which sport the 3-pin functionality and run $54 each. Also available is the portrait style Desk dock with and HDMI output and a full USB port for charging and transferring data. The desk dock is a little cheaper at $49 and when compared to Samsung’s direct pricing, Google’s price’s are much lower all around. It’s probably worth mentioning that you LTE users will probably find that all theses accessories are not compatible with LTE devices. Bum deal, huh? Talk to Big Red about that one.

To see the newly added accesories for yourself, hit up the Play Store link below.
