    I do like the fact that it tilts for sure. However I may shop around for it since it is $49.99.

    I'm a sucker for a dock. I bought the multimedia dock and laptop dock for my atrix, and i am sure I will be buying this one too. I really like when the phone manufacturer makes a dock that is svelt like this one. The Dell streak is another prime example of pricey $75 dock, but made it so worth it. Tried to get my Infuse today, but the store mgr swore they didn't have any as of yet....one more day.

    Weird. I got the dock yesterday at AT&T for only $39.99. Actually less. I got 3 items, case, screen protector and dock. Because I got two items, they waived the $18 upgrade fee and then with the third waived the charge for one of three. I saved $42 by buying three items.

    I saw the dock on the ATT site for $39.99. Amazon is selling it on Amazon Prime for $49.99. Kind of pricey for a plastic stand. It looks like you have to remove your case to put the phone in. If anyone finds a case that can be used with it, let us know.

    I just opened the box and took a look.

    1. Looks nice and substantial. Plastic, but nice plastic. It's heavier than I thought it would be.
    2. You are correct, it won't work with a case on it. The sides of the phone are right against the channel in the dock.

    I bought the dock and I like it. The one thing I do not like is the screen protector, it takes away a lot quality from the beautiful screen, any better option to protect the display?

    I got the dock when I got my Infuse. I also got suckered into buying a case so I can get the free Moshi Visor. I later returned the case and got a car charger. I have to agree with you though, the screen protector dulls down the screen, but I love how it is anti-glare and smudge-proof. I'm still debating whether or not I should take it off.

    The dock is awesome, except for the fact that it won't let me out of the Samsung Desk Home app when it's docked. Prevents me from seeing my home screen.
