    Is there a USB and Charger in one that I can buy for the Nexus One? Like on the iPhone and HTC Eris.

    Thanks

    I'm wondering if one might be able to use the iphone wall part - the actual Charger part, which has a USB port on it... and then use the Nexus' micro USB cable instead of the dock cable... ?

    Check that it outputs 5V @ 1A or less.
    You should be cool to use if that's the case.

    That's not any better than what's in the box. You get a better USB to micro USB in the box that you just plug into a USB wall charger.

    Yes, but it says that it charges slower. I don't understand why Google would want this when HTC does it how I like it on all of their other devices.
