Galaxy Nexus owners are up for a treat with Samsung finally open for pre-orders for the Pogo Desktop Dock.
The horizontal phone dock allows users to charge one’s Nexus through three pogo pins, plus it has a 3.5mm stereo output. It is a litle pricey for $89.99, and Samsung’s HDMI dock seems to be more appealing with about $30 savings.
When getting the Pogo Desktop Dock, double-check whether you are getting the international version (identified by a different part number) or the U.S. versions (which can be Verizon-supported or Sprint-supported), as Samsung clearly differentiates the Verizon dock from the rest, although it might be just a discrepancy.
One of my gripes is that it can only be used horizontally, understandable because of where the connection is located in the phone. It would have been nice (but maybe too much to ask for) if it could be positioned vertically, so that it would work well when checking out notifications.
