    What are those 3 tiny buttons/contacts on the side of the phone, below the Power button.

    Ok, I just found the answer to the question: "charging contacts"; but how do they work?

    Cool! I have a case on my phone and was afraid it wouldn't allow the phone to fit in; and line up with, the mini USB plug, plus someone complained that they couldn't use a headset with the portrait oriented doc. The, landscape orientation might address both these issues. Thanks for the link, I think I'll order it! :biggrin:


    Hmmm, I thought is was on all on all Gnex phone. I've seen in mentioned on a couple of review videos, in one case I didn't catch what the guy said about it, some didn't mention it, but today I saw the reference again and it was clear. But none of them mentioned them by name; pogo pins.

    Thanks again

    That dock that CJM linked is only compatible with the GSM/HSPA+ galaxy Nexus. If you have the Verizon version it won't fit as its dimensions are slightly different compared to the GSM model. There is no official Verizon Galaxy Nexus dock AFAIK

    Yes, and also, they have stopped making it. I didn't notice that until I posted my last response.
