Okay, it’s show time! You guys have been asking, begging, demanding and imploring me for photos of the MIKRADLE EVOLUTION X. Here's a small sampling that will hopefully satisfy you for a little bit. I’ll follow up when time permits with the other colors (walnut, cherry, white, oak and mahogany).
Basically, this EVOLUTION X is about 3/8” longer than a standard EVOLUTION, and the same height. The backrest gets the biggest change. Obviously the horizontal inlay stripe is gone, and replaced with a brushed aluminum inlay configured as an X. Guess why?
The left side of the backrest is recessed 3/16” for the projection of the upper portion of the back of the Droid X, which houses the camera lens. This enables the phone to lie flat when placed on the cradle.
The chrome pegs have been reduced in number, down from five to four. There is plenty of clearance for both the MicroUSB port and the HDMI port - so cable connections will be no issue.
The backrest also has a magnet installed for the Multimedia Mode, similar to the Droid I and II - but in a different location.
There are other subtle differences - the backrest is now squared off on the upper edge, losing the radius found on the standard EVOLUTION. The backrest has also gone on a diet - although it is longer than prior models, it has been slimmed down for for a more sleek look. The sizing of this model facilitates the option of using all covers currently on the market today - with no need to remove the cover to utilize the features of this dock. This has been the driving purpose of all MIKRADLES since it's inception back in Dec/'09.
The backrest is covered with a protective felt backing - as are all MIKRADLES.
This model is offered in custom configurations (as all MIKRADLES). Options include different inlay materials (aluminum, brass, metals, carbon fiber, vinyl, cloth, etc.) Pegs are available in polished brass as well as the chrome. Colors are available in any color you can imagine. Sports models are also a custom option with color schemes to match teams, as well as team logos on the left and right panels. The X inlay can also be substituted with the number for your favorite player.
The price of this MIKRADLE EVOLUTION X model (any of the six standard colors) is $45.99 for registered forum members, and if you wish to include the 6' MicroUSB Cable, that is an additional $4.00. Shipping is free (Continental States only).

That’s about all for now. You asked - MIKRADLE answered.
