    First off I'd like to say that J&R.com have earned themselves a customer for life. Got our tablet a week ago and got the keypad today!

    Anyway...Just a little pointer for those of you wh are about to dock the pad/station together. Here's a quick rundown the instructions via the manual.

    1. Align pad to station, 3 sockets
    2. Firmly insert pad to socket
    3. Ensure latch is in locked position

    BUT, and this is a big but, they forgot to mention one very important point. Your tablet has rubber grommets in 2 of the 3 sockets that you first need to remove before docking but they left this out of the instructions. Don't do like I did and try to force the 2 halves together. Remove the grommets first.

    Just a heads up for ya'll!

    Enjoy

    What are your impressions of the dock so far?

    its a little bit laggy when typing. Sometimes you can get a whole word ahead. And i thought the base was supposed to have a built in subwoofer but im not hearing or seeing one.

    i've got the dock, haven't noticed the lag in typing. have found the keyboard easy to type with. typically disable the touchpad on the keyboard.

    I'd also heed the warning about not picking up the unit by the tablet while it's docked to the keyboard. That latch is not extremely robust and I can see why the cantilevered stress on it would not be a good thing!

    I do not have my dock yet but I did remove the plugs on mine just to see. There is a hole in the plug. I stuck the tip of an ink pen into the hole and popped them out. Do not stick the pen straight down into the plug but from the back of the prime towards the front. When you lift there is a little edge on the hole that the tip will grab and they will come out.

    I would save them.

    Yep, I got them. Thanks. ;) I think mine were much harder to get out since I did, in fact, try to dock without taking them out (not sure what I was thinking but I was following the directions!!). Anyway, its working well now. ;)
