    You can get a dock, I don't have one but a friend does and uses his as a bedside alarm clock and loves it. It also will charge an extra battery. I plan on getting one soon.

    I use mine on the edge of a desk, with the usb just over the edge. Works perfectly while charging on the kickstand.

    I don't know if it was a design flaw, or if HTC figured they can sell their docks with it configured this way. Anyway, I use mine as an alarm clock too. I simply prop the TB to a book on my desk and it doesn't fall. I stopped waiting for the dock a few months ago, but if there is one out now I'm curious what it looks like and if it includes the rumored HDMI port.
