    Best Homemade Eris Dock CONTEST

    This was AwesomeIT's idea, I have a prize for it, so lets git-r-dun!!!

    Contest Rules: make a homemade dock out of stuff from around your house. Anything will do. It can be a simple stand, have a built in usb charger, built in speaker, whatever. I am thinking that style and looks will count for a lot. (I have attached a picture of mine to this post as an example, you can't use my idea, and I am not in the contest)

    You have a week to get it together, take a picture, and post it here in this thread.

    After a week I will make a new thread with a poll and we will take a vote on who's the winner.



    Prize: My otterbox commuter case. It is just the case, no packaging or anything, but it is in perfect condition. I will send it to you, you cover just the shipping.

    Runner Up: A screen protector (shipping included)


    I really want to see some cool ideas and designs people.

    How's this? I can change her outfit to match my different cases too! :p So if "style and looks will count for a lot", Barbie has it in the bag!

    originally i bought the vzw shell holster, works great(what im currently using)

    then i was offered a good deal on a otterbox commuter so i snapped it up. it is a very nice case but there is no holster for it. i hate pocketing my phone so that stinks. it actually fits INTO the vzw holster but it does not come out easy (enough for me).

    here's my dock, using 2 old transit cards fused together with premium magic tape, angled precisely at 78 degrees for optimal viewing, complete with a slot to insert the mini usb charger. i used to have a paperclip going across the bottom to prevent the phone from tipping back if i tried pressing the screen, but the doubling of the cards helps.

    It's too bad that I've already ripped off Caddy's idea, it's far too solid and functional. The winner so far in my book, even if you're not competing.

    Here's mine, an old picture frame holder. I glued it so it wouldn't move, it's supposed to be portable and fold up. I like the elegant looks of it, even though the wife thinks I baby my phone too much, lol:

    Problem 1.

    I need a dock for my Eris

    Problem 2.

    The iPhone certainly isn't any good for making calls, so what should it be used for?

    The solution to both problems...

    First the dock itself

    [​IMG]

    Next the dock doing a wonderful job holding my Eris :D
