    Samsung lists one for the Captivate but it's been "out of stock" since day 1. It's also overpriced, considering you still have to use your own USB charging cable/adapter with it.

    This is an interesting product too:

    It's a battery, with a battery charger, and the wall/AC adapter, plus the charger doubles as a stand for the phone.

    Any more information on the Samsung Captivate auto mount that was briefly mentioned in a news release and has disappeared from sight?

    Somebody needs to bring out a dock that isn't outrageously expensive...

    I could see maybe - MAYBE - paying 40 bucks for a dock that included a charger, but since the Samsung one is BYO - the hell with that.

    I ordered this.

    It works pretty well. If your phone is in a case..it might not fit vertically.

    It's coming out I think, but it's going to take quite a while.

    Here is a different site selling the OEM dock for 10 bucks less than Samsung. It also says in the description it includes the AC wall powe supply, which the Samsung website off ONLY ships the dock, no cords, no wall adapter.

    They Say it is not available yet but list it as being available on 10/22, roughly a month from now... I AM going to order at least 2 of these!

    My local AT&T store attempted to order both the desk dock and the auto (windshield) mount featured in a photo announcing the Samsung accessories. Neither of these products is available for AT&T stores to order through their corporate channels, nor is there an expected availability date, if ever.

    Third party sources that are offering these products are either not going to get them from Samsung anytime soon or will have to design and outsource their own products.

    It's unfortunate that Samsung has listed the desk dock as "out of stock" - although it was NEVER "in stock", but will allow the customer to proceed through the backorder process on their website and telling the customer they will be contacted in 10-14 days when the product WILL be in stock.

    Quite deceitful and not the best public relations. :mad:

    I'll find substitute products elsewhere since I can not depend on Samsung to provide them in the foreseeable future.

    I was in a local sprint store yesterday, and they have the Samsung Galaxy S branded OEM dock in stock for the Samsung Epic ($39). It includes a wall charger. The Epic has the micro USB located in the CENTER of the top edge of the phone where the Captivate (and other Galaxy S models) have the micro USB located on the left side of the top of the phone (looking from the front of the phone). Other than the location of the micro USB port, this Sprint dock looks like the Captivate would fit fine. I suspect that when T-Mobile, Verizon or at&t release a Samsung OEM dock for their phone it will work with the Captivate. It also looks like it will include the charger.

    I am assuming that the dock does not charge the phone because of the complex location of the microUSB connector, am I right? Do you have to set the phone in the dock and then connect the microUSB cable directly to the phone so the phone will charge?

    The dock would obviously charge. The one shown on the samsung website, which looks to be pretty accurate since it has the right battery door recession and curvature, has a microUSB plug on the left. You would have to connect the dock to a power source however through another port that's on the back.

    Ah, I had only seen the stand before today. The stand charges a battery, but only holds the phone, does not charge it. The dock holds and charges the phone, but not a battery.
