    Did anyone notice that if you choose "most popular" for the thunderbolt that the desktop charger is available? Is that the same as the "multimedia dock" they promised a while back?

    Has anyone tried to buy off this link? It looks weird... but it has the desktop charger.

    WOW! $60 for a desktop cradle? Does anyone else have sticker shock? I really hope they make the price more reasonable when its actually available.

    Looks like the one. It was always listed that high, and yes, it's way too much. I can get it for $45 which is still too much, but I would really like to have it to charge my phone and extended battery at the same time... birthday coming up.

    It's on the regular site now too. Out of stock.

    Looks cheap... for $60

    I hate it being sideways. Personally, I use my kickstand all the time on my desk in the portrait orientation while charging and/or plugged into the PC. I really don't see the point of a "desktop cradle". Watching movies in landscape maybe? But I wouldn't want to have to put up with a sideways phone 99.9 percent of the time when I was not watching movies.

    Isnt there a 'multimedia' menu for when it's in the dock like with the og?

    As has already been said, what's the point of landscape if you have to read in portrait?

    I keep looking at that ThunderBolt™ Inductive Battery Cover but it's $40 and the guy at VZW store showed me the charging pad for it and it's $60. Plus the charging pad only fits one phone. So my choice is to get this for a total of $100 or get the extended battery for $7...hmmmm decisions decisions.

    on the inductive charging stands. There is an article referenced in the Tbolt battery tips thread that states the Li Ion batteries don't fare well in the long run on the wireless stands due to the increased heat transferred to the phone/battery. Nice technology, i'm just not sold on it yet for use on a nice gadget like our Tbolts.

    So I didn't go through the complete checkout process for the Extended Battery but does anyone know if it still can be ordered through there? The reason I ask is because the main site still shows that the Extended Battery is out of stock right now.

    Same here. I guess that's where I was going with my post. I have the 25% discount and also want to use my VZW Gift Card.

    Check this review on the dock..... uggh.... can't charge the phone and battery at the same time without using a usb cable, and power cable?! kidding me.

    Should be called "Thunderbust" Cradle charger. You have to use a power outlet to charge a battery. Very good. But then to charge the phone, you have to plug it in to USB on a computer. There is no HDMI or Media outlet except for the USB Cable. Save your money. Can do same thing with supplied USB cable that comes with Thunderbolt.

    It's not available yet I don't think (I could be wrong) so chances are that review is from another dock seller. I see lots of reviews for stuff not available and they are usually bad.

    That review is from verizonwireless.com about the "temporarily out of stock" cradle. I wish you were right though...

    Click on reviews.

    Yeah I saw it over the weekend but VZW never had it in stock did they? I wish they would so we could get a honest review before buying it.

    I ordered the dock from the site the OP gave. It's still on backorder so I cancelled my order this morn. So my advice is if the main site has it as out of stock, don't bother ordering lol. Saves you all the anxiety that comes with wondering whether it was legit or no. For the record, it is legit lol

    If you are talking about corporate pricing or some kind, you will need to buy it through the store to get that I think. When I got the extended battery and ordered it online I did NOT get the 25% off I always get when I buy stuff in store.

    I ordered the battery a week after the phone was released and like it very much (the bulk is overrated and the benefits far outweigh the negative). What I was saying is I paid the $49.99 for it listed on the website not the $49.99 - 25% = $38 I would have had I bought it in the store.
