    I was just checking out the market and found this awesome application.

    DockRunner allows for your phone to go INTO the multimedia dock mode without the phone actually being in the dock. You probably just need to make a stand for the phone to sit in yourself, but that isn't too hard.

    I just wish the charging port was on the other side. I will update this post when I can find the app on Androlib, but its definitely in the market.

    Search for DockRunner.

    It also puts the home screen in landscape without the keyboard extended.

    Only when the program is "running".

    Once you click the application icon again to stop the "dock mode" the home screen goes back to its normal orientation.

    Dock mode is the mode the phone enters when placed in the multimedia dock (on left):

    Ditto. Only thing to get it OUT of media mode, run the program again. It freaked me out for a minute cuz I couldn't figure out how to get it back to normal! :icon_ banana:

    On the physical keypad there is a search button. Looks just like the search button, on the touch screen. You press that button and whatever lettered key to trigger the app. You can even use the touch search + keypad to launch. If the virtual keyboard was multitouch you could probably trigger them from the virtual keypad.
