    I had some time on my hands this afternoon and made a effective dock from some scraps. First of all, I have the extended battery and the CaseMate POP! case for the GNex Amazon.com: Case-Mate CM017311 POP! Case for Samsung Galaxy Nexus GT-i9250 / Galaxy Nexus SCH-i515 Verizon: Cell Phones & Accessories. Here is a list of items that I used:
    • Half of a plastic case that a RAM stick was shipped in
      3M Dual Lock double-sided velcro Fasteners - 3M US
      A piece of foam that was used to ship a HDD in


    All that was needed to do was to cut half of the plastic case and trim to desired fit. Apply the velcro to the foam strip and insert in the tray. Below are some pics:

    Any others have any unusual designs?

    I bought the ezeStand, and popped the magnets out with a screwdriver. (The magnets shouldn't be an issue, but since they don't work with the G.Nexus, I didn't want them to interfere with anything).

    ezeStand - The Ultimate Smart Phone Stand

    It works with or without a case.

    Thats what I have now is the EZ Stand. But I had it for like almost 2 years. And went through about 5 Android Phones. Worked for everyone of them lol. And it was like 6 bucks back in the day.

    I had an eze stand at home and at work from my prior cell--DroidX. I am still using them with my GNex and they work fine.

    Loved mine. I use the spare battery charger now that has a stand built in that works good.

    Do you have the 2100mAh Samsung extended battery? Does it fit well in the Case-mate pop case? I had heard that it did not fit, but if it does I would be interested in geting that case.

    Thanks,

    I also just got a wire mesh card holder, put some of that knick-knack putty on the bottom, then a few rubber tabs where the phone sits (bottom and back to avoid scratching) and it works great! My charging wire is permanently propped right where it needs to plug in.

    Hello, its my first post here.

    I actually put some work into this one:


    The Dock is build with MDF and it is spraypainted with high gloss black. The "grey" parts you can see are stainless steel colored.
    The Connector has an Audio and a USB Plug so that the Nexus can play sound and be charged/connected to a PC at the same time.
    There are 2 active Speakers inside the dock that work with both, Batteries an AC Adapter.
    Main Focus was that I could watch Videos in the Kitchen or next to my PC while I'm gaming.
    Just made it because I couldn't find one where the Nexus fits in horizontally.

    I ordered this on eBay and just got it today.

    With my 2100mah extended battery it fits snugly inside the dock. I always take my case off so it didn't matter to me.

    I ordered the same one on Monday. What are your opinions of it?

    When I put my phone in it, it is pretty steady inside the dock. I like it, but it took forever to ship to my house. Only had it for a day but its going good so far
