Where are all of the Galaxy Nexus accessories?

Posted Apr 02, 2012 at 10:34 pm in Threads > Opinions

So the Galaxy Nexus has been out on Verizon here in the US for almost three months. Other than the few basic accessories that launched with the phone, to the best of my knowledge and research they have only added a desktop cradle charger to the lineup.

For me personally a large part of the fun of owning a high end device lies in “accesorizing” my phone. I really would like to have a media dock, an in car mount, and whatever other gadgets that Samsung can dream up. With NFC and the thre pin charger on the side I thought they would really push the envelope.

So here we sit, three months later with basically nothing exclusive or exciting. I’m wondering how the rest of you SGN owners feel? Do you think that a lack of SGN sales is hurting accessory development? Is it the carrier exclusivity? Or is this just par for the course?

    Alright, I took the 20 point gamble, I hope it pays dividends! ;0)

    I have the same feeling about my SGN I can’t find any new and interesting accessories for it. One thing I got that I was really exited about is the MHL to HDMI adapter and its great.

    Anyway I think its mainly related to the sales or to the lack of sales that is making good accessories hard to find

    I have really been wanting the car dock with the built in charger! People say the GSM version does not work with Verizon’s version, so there is nothing to do but wait.

    I’d been thinking about getting this dude off Amazon for around $20, but the reviews are just meh:

    Also I heard from someone that owns this one that it is cheap and feels like it might break or tip over at any minute:

      I love the first dock you linked there! Only wish it fit the CDMA battery instead of just the GSM battery. Otherwise, I’d get it!

      I have been using this guy for a while.

    i am sure the carrier exclusivity is the main cause. probably not all that much money out there for products for a niche of a niche market.

    personally I was happy I was able to get a case and a screen cover.
