A car dock has been leaked in photos for a couple of weeks now:
Clear Images of Droid Incredible Cases, Car Dock | Android Phone Fans
In terms of a desktop dock, I have seen speculation, but nothing more than that. What I've seen seems to imply that it'll be a landscape dock, like the Droid's. There are no contacts on the bottom of the phone like the N1, so there's probably no charging it in portrait mode, so landscape mode seems the most probable at this point.

there is definitly a car mount and media base just like for the moto droid. they are both the same prices and are POST LAUNCH items so expect them anywhere from the 29th to a few weeks later at verizon stores. just to let everyone know the car mount does not have the auto car dock mode like the moto droid.

I'm wondering what the plans are for what was called in the sprint leak of the Hero "Navigator" but has a different name on the Incredible. Its something like the "Car Home" app that the N1 has (probably moto droid too, but I haven't really played with those).
As for desk docks, kinda hard with the port on the side. Maybe someone will develop something like a slide in dock.

It works pretty well, maybe they'll make one for the Inc.

I was thinking the desktop charger would be a landscape viewed cradle, though the picture in the Launch Materials is not the most detailed thumbnail. It definitely didn't resemble the Storm dock photo from what I remember.
As for the car dock, two questions. Does it handle landscape (photo only showed portrait) and is their a power jack?
@Adiliyo...the Incredible Launch Kit (to prep employees) specifically stated the car mount would not launch the Car App.

The largest selection of docks I've seen so far is at Fommy. I'm not sure how legit they are though. It seems surprising that they would have so many different ones before the phone has been released. I'm wondering if their systems just have a way of labeling a bunch of generic ones as being compatible with whatever phone you search for.

I wonder if there are some clip style docks made for other phones that fit the incredible, or are close enough that a piece of foam rubber tape will hold it snug. The measurements are close enough there should be something.
Something thin and unobtrusive like the mounts on Garmin GPS units.
You'd still need a car USB charging cord but it wouldn't be too bad and it wouldn't be a big and bulky as the universal car docks.
