    Does anyone know if there is a UK supplier of these? Couldn't find it on amazon.co.uk

    It's from Samsung. You could probably find one on eBay.

    It's pretty sweet for the price. Hopefully this will hold me off till the Official Charger comes out. I'll get that one if the price is as reasonable as the phone. :D

    I have the Samsung dock for the SGS2 (i777) and the N4 is just a bit too wide, but it's very nice for sitting on a desk.

    So just to clarify, this will not work with the nexus 4 bumper, correct?

    Correct. You'd have to take the bumper off.

    So,
    Are you saying this dock is good because it's made by Samsung... despite the fact Nexus 4 is made by Samsung's competitor - LG?
    I wonder if leaving Nexus 4 on [this] dock would harm its battery over long term. All the sources say it's better for batteries to be fully charged and then almost fully discharged, rather than kept charged all the time.
    Also, Amazon lists it as a charger for Samsung Infuse phone, not for LG Nexus 4. You confused me...

    The dock was officially made for the Samsung Infuse, but the Nexus 4 just happens to be the exact same width and the Micro USB connector lines up perfectly so it works as a desktop charger. It does not connect in MTP mode so data transfers won't work through the dock.

    You are incorrect about the batteries. Almost every phone made in the last couple of years uses Lithium-Ion batteries. Li-Ion batteries do not have a "memory" and do not need to conditioned. Actually, they can be damaged if you deeply discharge them to the point where they will no longer accept a charge. Older NiMH batteries do have a memory and will perform better with routine discharges, but I doubt you'll see to many of those batteries any longer.
