Uh oh, Motorola Droid – you better look out! The Nexus One is going to cut you — Wait, no, that’s not right. The Nexus One is going to snag one of your flagship features. I always get those two mixed up.

Google didn’t make any mention of accessories when they were launching the Nexus One, but the proof is in the pudding – and by pudding, I mean this Google support document.

You can use Car Home whether or not you have a Nexus One car dock (coming soon).

There’s just about no room for interpretation there – but what about other accessories? A gent over at the Nexus One Forum asked about the availability of “docking station, car dock, or other accessories”, and got this response from a Googler:

The docking stations for Nexus One are not available at this time. Stay tuned though, they should be available soon.

While the helpful responder may very well have been talking about the same car docks mentioned in the support documentation, the original question distinctly separated “docking stations” and “car docks” into two categories. The guys over at Slashgear are assuming that this means desktop docking stations are on the way soon – and you know what? We’ll have to agree.

We first saw the car dock and docking station mentioned in some pre-release product page leaks. At least according to those leaks, the docking station would set you back $39.99, while the car docking station would come in at $49.99.
