    hello all. i just got my x a few days ago and am loving my first droid phone (came from a storm 1). anyways i need a cheap charging dock for my headboard so i can use the phone as an alarm clock easier. i can't justify spending 40-50 bucks for a cradle with hdmi stuff that will never be used. any one know a cheap charging dock for 10-20 bucks? thx in advance

    Almost a charging dock $2.32.
    May not be quite what you want,but.
    Went to office max and bought a metal business card holder. It holds the phone a nice angle. Had to place a pencil in the bottom so that the buttons weren't hidden.
    I just plug in my charging cable.
    I know "tacky" but cheep and works great better than spending $30.00

    Almost positive it wont when you consider the dimensions of the Droid 1 vs Droid X.

    Built a dock using two "fishnet" business card holders from OfficeMax ($1.99 each; OM96865). Stole two tiny screws from a dead electronics case to hold the pieces together. Took a magnet from an old Blackberry case for the dock "switch." Used wire cutters to open a hole for the USB cable. Took the pics with my X, so son's new Droid played stunt double.
