Still No Car Dock?!
Okay, seriously...where is the car dock for the Nexus S? Are we even getting one? I realize it's not the most popular phone in the world, but I bought it hoping I could have a great dock like I did with the Nexus One. I heard some rumors at the end of the year that more accessories were coming for it, but have yet to see ANYTHING other than the Seido case and holster.
If we can't get a form-fitting car dock, does anyone at least know of a universal dock that has a micro-USB connector built into the dock itself so I don't have to fish around for the plug?

I bought my wife this, and it seems to work very well
Amazon.com: AutoDASHMOUNT Portable Friction Dash Mount with 360 Degree Fully Articulating Neck for OPTIMUM View and Dashboard Fit - Removable 2 Neck Options FLEX and PIVOT - for Motorola / Samsung / LG / Nokia / HTC / T-Mobile: Electronics
I was thinking of picking one up, and selling my Nuvi.

Samsung now has official Nexus S accessories on their site, but none of them are available. They all show out of stock when I try to order.
These are the only three I know of so far, desktop dock and car dock, and battery charger.

I guess I'm not really surprised. It is Samsung afterall...This is so disappointing. I had the Nexus One and loved the car dock. I thought those metal contacts might become standard, but nope. And now Samsung can't even manage to put out a good car dock for their stock-Android dev phone.

Those docks were really unique IMO and, not many people seemed to like them - like us - unfortunately. I really like the way car home opened when you installed the N1 also.
It looks like the pro clips are the best options unless Samsung ever decides to sale there accessories.
