    I'd like to hope it works, after all the thickness difference between the two is what, 1/2mm? But no confirmation. I think I'll contact Samsung and see if they have anything to say about it.

    Here's my chat with Samsung:

    Alfred: Hi, thank you for contacting Samsung Technical Support. How may I help you today?
    Steve: I just purchased a Verizon Galaxy Nexus, and have a question about accessories.
    Steve: Specifically, do the docks for the GSM versions of the Galaxy Nexus work with the Verizon Galaxy Nexus?
    Steve: I know there's a slight thickness difference between the phones.
    Alfred: Would you mind holding 3 minutes while I gather the required information on your request?
    Steve: Certainly.
    Alfred: Thank you.
    Alfred: I would like to inform you that there is no information available for the compatibility of docks for the new phone.
    Alfred: If the device is working fine with the dock , you can use it.
    Steve: OK. I ask because there are no docks other than the vehicle dock listed for the Verizon model
    Steve: Presumably I could return it if it didn't fit.
    Alfred: Yes. I have checked the details from my end too.
    Steve: Ok. Thanks for your help. Have a great day!
    Alfred: You're welcome. Is there anything else I can assist you with?
    Steve: No, I think we're good.

    Anyone purchase this yet or have any info of where I can get one of these in the US? I really need a dock that has both the Audio out put and USB in the rear and keeps the phone in landscape. I plan on using this dock in my car and this would work perfectly for what I have in mind.

    hate to point this out but that dock should be no more then $20. and its near $80. docks are always overpriced but this is just too much. id wait till some 3rd party releases a dock that they sell cheaper.

    I went ahead and bought it anyway. It apparently isn't shipping until January 1st. I will post results on this forum, and on XDA when I get it in the mail! So keep an eye out. (someone has to be first right?)

    I wanted to get this for my night stand but after reading that review I cant understand why its even made. The Nexus doesnt go into landscape mode when turned sideways and I dont think there is a "dock mode".

    Or am I lost?

    AFAIK, you are correct that the Nexus wouldn't kick into any landscape/dock mode. However, you could use the Clock app in landscape or some other 3rd party app that provides the services you need in landscape. Perhaps when the 3 contacts are connected on the Nexus, it triggers some kind of dock mode on the phone? I don't have anything to test this with, so I can't say for sure.

    The lack of landscape mode is a function of the launcher. The stock ICS launcher does not do landscape. ADW EX does. I really tried to like the stock launcher, and I do like the stock app drawer. But I found the launcher lacking, and was back to running ADW within a few hours of bringing my Nexus home.
