It is the same as the Droid. They will probably have a charging cradle, perhaps with a magnet to put it into the night clock mode. I don't know if the TB has a magnetic switch like the Droid, but I would bet that it does. The USB port would also be in the correct location to mount into a car dock with a power plug. In my opinion, it's in the correct location for both cradles. I have a Droid and the home cradle and it is more convenient to just drop it into the always plugged in cradle than to have to find the cord and plug it in at night. What is the big deal with buying a probably $30 cradle, considering the cost of the phone and just the data plan over 2 years is at least $970?
