I like the creative ideas, but I was kind of looking for something that it actually plugged in to that would allow me to use it as a clock, hook it to some speakers for Pandora or whatever, etc., like the Nexus dock that just came out. I know the Eris is basically the same as the Hero, so didn't know if HTC has any similar accessories that, while not officially for the Eris, would work for it.
here are the 2 of 3 I made. Simple and to the point to lay it facing up. they sit on our night stands on each side of our bed with our phones plugged in and ready to wake us up in the AM. I have another at work to. Nothing fancy but it suits my personal needs. I'd love one to have USB and speakers for audio, but haven't seen anything yet.
