    I've already seen a decent selection of cases showing up, but what about non-universal docks / car docks, etc? On a related note, is it possible they aren't planning one for it? I read the Sensation user guide pdf a few days ago - not noticing at the time the missing "4G" - and it mentions an entry in the settings menu to adjust dock behavior. The user guide for the Sensation 4G backs up what I've seen on the phone itself, no "Dock" entry... :thinking:

    I took the initiatve and bought the Body Glove case (had good prior experience w/them), as it has a kick stand, and the created a shortcut to the "desktop dock" using the app Any Cut.

    I don't understand the point of the using Any Cut when everything in it is basic functionality in Android. Are there any advantages to using this app?

    Any Cut creates the shortcut to the app itself, as there is no native way to "activate it", sans a physical dock (or magnets).

    I've been looking all over for a desktop dock. Does anyone know if the Sensation and the Sensation 4g (T-mobile) have the exact same build? I was wondering if the docks for the "Sensation" would fit the T-Mobile version.

    I bought the dock below from HTC Pedia and it arrived yesterday.

    It works pretty well. It's a little awkward to connect but it serves it's purpose. My biggest complaint about it is that it has a really bright blue light on the back of the dock that is always on when the dock is plugged in. I took some paint and blacked it out since this is at my bedside and didn't want that lighting up my bedroom at night.
