    The site says on backorder now. Lol. Maybe it was never supposed to go on sale? I don't think *THAT* many people bought this dock. It's way too overpriced.

    I wouldn't be too sure, A lot of people have been waiting a long time for docks for this mighty phone. It's really ridiculous that after almost 3 months charging docks are just now released. But yeah, you'd figure after all that time they'd have more in stock than this lol

    btw, I was one of the people that bought one. I used a gift card from my in-laws that I've had since Christmas, so I really wasn't out any money.

    Got mine today, and the workmanship is fantastic. I don't know how much technology goes into the 3-pin configuration to justify that price, but the materials and build quality is superb. I sit at my desk at work or home quite a bit, so I will use this all day, every day. I'm very happy with my dock.

    Yea I really want one but that price is crazy. One of the things that makes it so desirable is the fact that there have been a decent amount of reports of the USB breaking and I'd love to be able to use the 3 pins for charging and only use the USB in case of emergencies like having to revert to stock if something breaks.

    No hdmi out, no thanks. I am glad those that got them are happy with them but it's hard to justify a 90 dollar price point when it's a glorified charger.

    I just read this thread on my way home from work. And just now, my phone won't charge. Jinx maybe?

    This whole 3 pin functional desktop dock for the Galaxy Nexus has become silly. Think I am going with one of the portrait USB ones. Verizon has one part # SAMI515DOCK which is a portrait desktop dock that charges via the USB. But given Verizon's piss poor attitude when I called today one of their corporate stores inquiring about docks for the GN I am looking for alternatives that are cheaper then the $60 Verizon wants for this USB one and I would rather not buy what I need from Verizon given the attitude today. Any thoughts for alternative portrait desktop dock that charges using the USB port that works well with our Galaxy Nexus?

    Think I will give this one a try: Cradle Dock w/ Second Battery Charger For Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus SCH-i515 | eBay

    Straight from Hong Kong and a poster in another thread said it worked good for them. Perhaps a Chinese manufacturer will knock off the car and desktop dock for the Gnex that uses the 3pins at some point since Samsung is being silly and Verizon is well... never mind. :D

    And when the USB plug wears out from constantly use rather then using the 3 pins for charging instead then Verizon and Samsung can replace the phone under extended warranty! :D
