    Are there any docks yet for the Inspire? I couldn't find any in all of my searching, but who knows...If there isn't, are there plans for one to be made by HTC? Or other companies for that matter?

    Also, are there any case companies that are comparable in quality to Otterbox? I have an Otterbox for my current phone (Commuter) but the silicone part collects all the lint in my pocket and makes it look trashy and then if I'm wearing jeans that are kind of tight, it makes it hard to get in and out of my pocket, whereas with a smooth case/no case it slides in and out easily...<--That wasn't meant to sound dirty...
    Anyway, I'm looking for a very high quality case that will protect the phone close to or better than Otterboxes will and preferably smooth on the outside...And not add too much bulk (a little is to be expected.)
    If I can't find anything good, I'll probably just go with the Otterbox Defender since it has a holster (so I have alternatives to my pocket)

    Also, I'm now 98% sure that I can get the phone, so are there any good accessories that I should get? I don't really need chargers (unless they are unique and a must have) because I have over 8 micro USB chargers/car chargers/cables in my house because my dad has a BB storm and my sister has a Captivate (Which both use micro USB) so I'm set on charging cables. A dock would be helpful though :

    Not bad, $5 shipping, it looks really nice and flush with the phone...It's smooth :D But if I had a case it wouldn't work...would any dock work with a case?

    i wouldn't use a spare battery with the Inspire since the battery door is so hard to get on/off anyway...

    Do you like the dock? How hard is it to get your Inspire in and out of?

    I am very satisfied with this dock. Works as described and looks very good. Getting the inspire in and out is fairly easy, but it still is a snug fit so no need to worry about it being loose. The thing is I need to take off the case i have on in order to put my phone on the dock.

    That one looks nice but sucks if you have a case, having to take it off and back on each time you charge. I saw this one in the same site. Looks good and seems to work no matter what case you have on.

    edit// nvm the way the microUSB is set up, forces you to dock your Inspire 4G background with the back facing you. Why did HTC have to set it up this way. >.<

    Has anyone seen any cradles/docks that are horizontal? Or what about vertical standing docks that include a plug for the audio in addition to the micro usb for power?

    I would like to have the ability to listen to music from the Inspire while docked.
