    Car Dock and Charger

    Sorry if this has been raised before. I was just browsing the official Samsung USA website and I see that Samsung sells essentially the same car dock and charger that Verizon sells -- that is, the "no power" car dock and stand up charger that employs the micro USB connector. I declined to buy these accessories when I purchased my phone because they don't take advantage of the charging pins on the side of the phone. While cruising the web, I see that Samsung makes and markets in the EU a car dock that utilizes the 3 pins on the side of the GNex and that also includes a headphone jack. Samsung also has developed a charger base that allows the phone to lay on its side in the landscape mode and receive a charge through the 3 pins. It appears the the charger may not be on the market yet. See these links:


    Genuine Samsung Galaxy Nexus Vehicle Dock - ECS-K1F2BEGSTD


    Samsung Desk Stand for Galaxy Nexus - EDD-D1F2BEGSTD

    Does anyone know if these official Samsung accessories are going to become available in the USA and if so, when?
    I'd hate to have to buy these items internationally. The UK prices are steep.

    thanks

    I dont think that there is any difference externally between the USA version and the EU version of the phone. The accessories that i.provided links to should work just the same.

    The US version is thicker.

    I would guess that the small difference in thickness wouldn't make the accessories a non-fit. The car dock looks like its made from silicone or a similar substance that has some give. I dunno. Maybe the thickness issue explains why these accessories aren't sold in the USA. If that's the case I hope that Samsung develops versions for the USA.

    If it wasn't so expensive I would have gone for it and tried my luck.

    yea the combination of the two components came up to $73.. But this is the best setup for my Jeep as it has a fairly small windshield and this mounts off the dashboard.. I didn't get the one with the wired charger though as i have a car charger already. And anyway i work a mile away from home so a rarely charge in the car..

    Proclip car cradle & mount

    I've been using ProClip cradles on my MotoQ, BB Storm, and most recently my OG Droid. IMHO they're the best vehicle solution. Even had one on my motorcycle. It's hard to justify the price of the wired cradles but once you start using one the convenience outweighs the cost....

    Can't wait until the GNex wired cradles are available!

    recommended! ProClipUSA
