    Anyone know a decent desktop charger / stand that will take the desire whilst in a silicon / gel case ?

    I want to charge it at night and use it as my alarm, but I don't want to have to remove it from the gel case each time !!

    So has anyone found a desktop charger that works with the shell ? I've asked sellers on ebay and all say no. Which is a right pain. I found a thread that someone uses a fabric one from Staples for $7 but nothing in the UK.

    im awaiting a gel case, it should arrive today. I already have a cradle so ill let you know if it works or not. If it doesnt work then im not beyond modding the cradle so if it can be done ill find a way and post back in here

    I don't think you'll find a cradle that will allow a Desire to dock with any kind of case on - there's so many cases the cradle manufacture can hardly be expected to make one that fits all. It might be too tight for one or too loose for another.

    There was a case for the iPhone where the bottom 1/4 slid off to allow it to sit on a cradle. Not sure if there's something simialr for the Desire

    just so you know mine didnt fit, but I intend to make it fit :D

    edit : i figured I could use A dremel type tool to take off a shaving of plastic as it just doesnt fit. maybe shaving away 1-2 mm will allow the usb connection to connect. In the end though I decided to do it the harder way and I decided to butcher the cradle. I took the stand part off the cradle, cut out a hole for a new usb cable and then fitted it to my volume control for my pc speakers. The control is a logitech one with an ipod/iphone stand so I made a little bracket to attach it to that.

    I'm also looking for a desktop cradle that'll accept a Desire fitted with a Gel case, any updates on this?

    perhaps we could design our own!

    Take one block of expanded polystyrene packaging, and one kitchen knife. Proceed to attack polystyrene with knife until an approximately desire sized hole appears. Cut a hole for a charging cable in the back, and spray paint polystyrene in a colour of your choosing. Add charging cable and phone. :p

    That looks suspiciously like the "Desk Genie Non-slip stand" from MobileFun which is definitely not 'compatible' with the Desire - something about the texture of the case means that it slides off the stand.

    (And the ridiculous power adapter arrangement is just ugly!)
