The folks athave caught everyone’s attention today with their new product. Some time in February they plan to ship the N-Station, a docking stand for the Nook Color and Nook Tablet. This dock comes with a pair of speakers and a mini USB plug so you can charge the Nook.
As you can see from the images, the dock will be able to hold the NT both in landscape and portrait mode. The N-Station is expected to ship in late February.
But I did find one bit of info that hasn’t been posted elsewhere. is also working on a similar dock for the Kindle Fire. It’s planned to come out shortly after the N-Station and it should work pretty much the same way.
You know, I’m not sold on the idea of a docking station for the KF or NT. I’m not the type of person to put a tablet down and let it continue to run. But I suspect I’m in the minority here. In fact, all you need to do is look at the multitude of iPod docks to know that there’s a market for media docks.
I’ve been promised a review unit, and by the time it arrives I should have a NookColor to use it with. I’ll let you know what I think.
