    Default Desk Dock

    Looking for a decent, affordable desktop dock that I can use the phone in landscape mode for. Mostly for just putting by my bed to use my phone as an alarm clock, but probably will get one for my desk too so I can watch Netflix and stuff in landscape mode.

    Any suggestions? Not having much luck finding a desktop dock that is in landscape.

    You could use the Infuse car dock, and just use it as a desktop dock. Heard it works great.

    Zenis S2 dock - Amazon. Like $20 and it comes in white to match. Even works with my thinner tpu case on.

    Anyone know of a desktop dock that works with a larger case like an otterbox Commuter?

    Got a link. Couldn't find any Zenis docks on Amazon....

    That looks pretty sweet. I think I'll get that. Plus, the price is right.

    Let me know what you think. If it's stable enough I might get it too!

    The reviews don't make it seem very promising... 2 1/2 stars.

    I looked at it a bit further and read the reviews. Decided to hold off. Seems like it's made for a thin case, and without one all the weight of the phone is on the USB connector, which is not good at all.

    **sigh**

    Guess I'll keep looking. Or go with that cheap option that ibcop pointed out above.

    There are quite a few desktop docks on ebay anywhere from 4-10 dollars a piece...for what it is, why not try one of those? All i would want a dock for is so that it would replace my bed/lightstand clock. Especially since i use my phone as an alarm clock.
