    Does anyone know of a desktop cradle for the Incredible? I'd like one that has the built in charger so I can use it as a nighttime resting place for it to charge and act as my morning alarm clock.

    I'm sure it is coming out soon as I saw the Droid Incredible car cradle displayed at the VZW store today.

    Mikradle is starting to take orders for his Evolution Series cradle but it will not hold the charge cable so you will have to plug in the charger then set it on the cradle.

    Also no cradle for the Incredible will actually start the desk clock app so you have to do this manually as well.

    Starting the desk clock app isn't a problem at all. I have it on my home screen.

    I just remember getting all the updates for the Nexus and it had an awesome charging cradle. I was really hoping since the Incredible is the close sibling to the Nexus that that same manufacturer would offer a charging cradle for the Incredible.

    cradle availability and pricing

    I work at Verizon wireless, and we have the cradle in the inventory system but no inventory on it. This means that there will be one, but that it hasn't been shipped out yet. Should be $29.99 when we do receive them, though.

    That's awesome, thanks for the update.

    Can you tell me if it'll be a vertical, horizontal, and if it'll have a built in charger so the phone just slides in and plugs up?

    Can you post a model or part number when you have access to that info?

    Thanks.

    I don't have an image available, but when I get more info I'll be sure to post it. I'm waiting for that to come out myself.

    Would also like to know about the cradle. Also, having a clock app start up when you plug in the phone shouldn't be too hard to find or program.

    But you have to add the mini to micro adapters... and your own power cord... so factor those into the price...

    That's true. I bought 4 adapters last week on Ebay for 99 cents each and already have a couple of power cords.

    You only need one adapter, correct? It will still use USB/mini to the device and then mini to adapter for the phone?

    Yup. Mini-B adapter plugs into the back of the dock/cradle. Then there is a mini b cable that comes out for the device. That gets the mini-b to micro adapter.
