    Any chance this dock charges the phone as well? Would be pretty nice to have by the couch with a 15 ft HDMI cord running into the back of the TV - charging dock as well as instant access to the HDMI out feature.

    I sure hope it does. Wouldn't make sense if it didn't. I plan on having that in my office.

    The dock coming out at BB is awesome news. I see the cases are out as well.

    DREX - thank you for compiling this all together for us!

    TS - thanks for those lens extensions too. Will you be ordering those for yourself?

    Sorry, but are there any better car docks/holders than the HTCPedia site has? Those look butt ugly imo.

    I would also like to know the answer to this question. I tried to do my own research (so everyone can resist the "let me google that for you" link), but there are so many conflicting opinions and misinformation on the interweb that I haven't found a real answer. I want to grab a $2 ebay special but would like some advice before I do.

    I've already bought an extended battery and a multi-function charger from Seido. My email said it has shipped out yesterday, so with overnight shipping should be coming today. Already purchased a leather case from eBay (not sure when it's coming). But my plans were to charge the extended battery overnight on June 3, so I can install the extended battery when I get the phone at Best Buy. No more waiting! :)

    I cannot speak to a rear view mirror mount, but I have one that mounts to the a/c vent. It was a cheap one from E-bay , but the sides are adjustable, so to not hit the side buttons of whatever device is being held. It also had a little frame for a picture of my young'en when nothing is mounted. It also attaches to the suction cup, which if both surfaces are cleaned well( I mean well, alcohol then windex, then lint free cloth) it sticks very well, I also came with a disc that could be stickied to what ever surface then the suction cup sticks to that.

    I would like to see the specific dock, that looks like one of the plastic holster specifically for the EVO

    Does anybody know for sure whether or not any brick and mortar store will have cases on the fourth?

    From what I was told yesterday by my Sprint Rep, their store here would have cases and a few other things for launch day.

    It's so frustrating because the rep I spoke with yesterday at a sprint store said the exact opposite. He said it is usually a couple of weeks after launch.

    Anyone planning to get a dock, if so will you be going with the HTC release. I am hoping there is an OEM dock that's similar to ones used on the iphone.

    Done, done and done! Thanks, Bek. I can definitely vouch for monoprice's quality and pricing. Got 6 speaker stands for my home theater setup for EXTREMELY cheap and they're really sturdy.
