Default Alarm clock/dock for HTC Legend

I am having a hard time finding a bedside alarm clock docking station for android phones.. HTC Legend

Something like this

Any suggestions?

As far as I see it, our phones do not have a port at the bottom that can allowing interfacing to a dock.

this is kind of one reason why I'm slightly leaning towards iphone. I'll keep weighing pros and cons

@texasdontholdem

There is hope at docking stations in general (HTC LEGEND SYNC AND CHARGER DOCKING STATION - HTC Legend), however to be honest, HTC popularity is pretty new and largely linked to Android. Therefore, if there was such a station (alarm etc. as you want), it probably would be a little while before it came out. It's like, I had to wait a few weeks, a month even, before I could find silicon cases for my Legend available in UK.

Additionally, if you're matching up Legend vs iPhone, well iPhone WILL win in terms of the accessories. Accessories and generally addons are one of the key focuses of Apple's business model. For a while now they've pumped money into developing things to add on to their devices - earphones, docking stations, radios, speakers, heck, even my TV has a dock!. Apple is after all a .. 'clique' of sorts, so they know that once someone gets an Apple device, they probably will follow suit with all the accessories. HTC does not put nearly as much effort into these accessories, hence a longer wait (if at all) for them.

All-in-all I luv my Legend, and as compared to iPhone, I luv the flexibility and ABSENCE of 'vendor lock in'.

Default Android/iPhone clock radios

I have a Dream Machine which fits my old iPhone (3gs). There are lots of dock connectors out there that would adapt the 30-pin connection in the radio to the new 8-pin connectors for the new iPhone 5 (I think it's called a lightening adapter?). But I'm considering changing to an android phone. The problem is that there doesn't seem to be anyone out there that has a DOCK adapter for 30-pin Apple to mini USB which is what most other phones are going to now. I can find corded adapters, but just not female to male, no cord. I came across this thread and it seems to me that if people are looking for something similar to the Dream Machine (actually, I don't think they make them anymore, but mine is great) for Android, and since Apple has so many accessories for their products, why doesn't someone just make an adapter? I've seen speaker docks and other accessories for Apple so it just make sense that even those without Apple products could be able to buy an Apple accessory AND an adapter for their product to be able to use it. Or, even better, why don't the manufacturers supply a multi-purpose adapter?

The HTC Hero packed a powerful punch itself, but now the manufacturer has upped the ante in specs, design and model name with that device's successor - the HTC Legend. The Legend takes design queues from the HTC Hero with its curved chin, but... Read More
