    A desk top cradle is really just a holder for your phone. It holds it in the upright position while chargeing and/or syncing. To get an idea of what I am talking about, google tmo shadow cradles. It will give you some pics and a clearer picture of what we are talking about.

    I have an idea. Why not make your own, using Lego's! Its easy to build and you can use you existing USB cable. :-D I think im heading over to Toys R Us tonight. Ill try and post a "How To" if it works out correctly.

    Pad the cradle with a monitor cloth.

    Don't want to scratch it up.

    Hooked, huh? My wife told me no Fable tonight.

    Legos have been insane for a while. Craigslist used ones.

    SWEET!!!

    Am I reading this correctly that it will charge up a second battery at the sametime as the phone???

    Nice looking too.

    Yes, it has a slot in the back for charging an extra battery. I like it and the price is nice also.

    Wow...that looks nice. The price seems a bit steep though. I want to hold out for one that has built in speakers like the one I have for my HTC excalibur (since its the same USB connector...I have even thought about taking a dremel to it and see what happens)
