    Okay, it’s show time! You guys have been asking, begging, demanding and imploring me for photos of the MIKRADLE EVOLUTION X. Here's a small sampling that will hopefully satisfy you for a little bit. I’ll follow up when time permits with the other colors (walnut, cherry, white, oak and mahogany).

    Basically, this EVOLUTION X is about 3/8” longer than a standard EVOLUTION, and the same height. The backrest gets the biggest change. Obviously the horizontal inlay stripe is gone, and replaced with a brushed aluminum inlay configured as an X. Guess why? :)

    The left side of the backrest is recessed 3/16” for the projection of the upper portion of the back of the Droid X, which houses the camera lens. This enables the phone to lie flat when placed on the cradle.

    The chrome pegs have been reduced in number, down from five to four. There is plenty of clearance for both the MicroUSB port and the HDMI port - so cable connections will be no issue.

    The backrest also has a magnet installed for the Multimedia Mode, similar to the Droid I and II - but in a different location.

    There are other subtle differences - the backrest is now squared off on the upper edge, losing the radius found on the standard EVOLUTION. The backrest has also gone on a diet - although it is longer than prior models, it has been slimmed down for for a more sleek look. The sizing of this model facilitates the option of using all covers currently on the market today - with no need to remove the cover to utilize the features of this dock. This has been the driving purpose of all MIKRADLES since it's inception back in Dec/'09.

    The backrest is covered with a protective felt backing - as are all MIKRADLES.

    This model is offered in custom configurations (as all MIKRADLES). Options include different inlay materials (aluminum, brass, metals, carbon fiber, vinyl, cloth, etc.) Pegs are available in polished brass as well as the chrome. Colors are available in any color you can imagine. Sports models are also a custom option with color schemes to match teams, as well as team logos on the left and right panels. The X inlay can also be substituted with the number for your favorite player.

    The price of this MIKRADLE EVOLUTION X model (any of the six standard colors) is $45.99 for registered forum members, and if you wish to include the 6' MicroUSB Cable, that is an additional $4.00. Shipping is free (Continental States only). To order, simply send a PayPal payment to my account name at: lubrich@optonline.net You must include your forum user name, choice of color, cable (if needed) and a current shipping address.


    That’s about all for now. You asked - MIKRADLE answered.

    UPDATE: Scroll down to Post #9 to see all six colors of the MIKRADLE EVOLUTION X:

    Thanks Mike!

    I, for one, didn't give up on you. I know you've had some serious issues to deal with lately and for that I am truly and deeply sorry. I will respectively be waiting for my order (though with bated breath) and am in no hurry for it. When it comes it comes.

    Thanks!

    PS - The pics are great!!

    chucklehead, thanks for those words! I appreciate your loyalty and tenacious patience.. I feel confident that these photos will show that your patience has paid off - this model is very unique in style and of the utmost quality. It may look basic, but for any that have ever tinkered with building anything - they will appreciate how much detail work is involved with such a basic design. The recessed back and "x" inlay are tedious and time consuming to create - no magic here - just patient hands and attention to intricate fit and finish. I take huge pride in my work and hope that all will appreciate my handiwork on this particular model.

    I'm eagerly looking forward to the next day or so posting more photos of the other colors, as well as some comparison shots showing my lineup side by side.

    mikey :)

    Mike, I am only on the board limited amount of times lately. When I come back, I am completely blown away at the updates to your great product line. Have you decided if you are going to do any customizing? I am thinking CF for the X...... or even vinyl overlay cf for the X.....

    Now, where can I find a CF case? :icon_eek:
