    Supposed to be coming this month, but the lack of accessories AT or around launch is pretty shitty.

    the leaks from best buy that came out before the launch said that the desk dock and car dock should be released sometime at the end of July i believe, so keep waiting

    No, I think Covert is correct - end of July.

    Will the official car dock have any features that a one-size-fits-all dock lacks? I'm wondering if there's any reason to keep waiting before ordering something.

    it'll be better tailored to the phone (snug fit). that's about it. probably better construction over a one size fits all as well.

    the dock made for it will have a charging port and i'm pretty positive that when you sit it in the car dock, it will automatically switch to nav mode.

    Whatever comes out - I hope its on a ball joint that will allow the EVO to be in landscape or portrait modes.

    Fiending for this since I travel a lot and the Evo is the second best GPS I have ever used (and has one of the largest screens of a GPS I have ever used.

    Has anyone in here used the hd2 car dock modified for use with the evo? It looks pretty cool.

    That DOES look sexy as hell! I just hope the EVO model doesn't require you to permanently stick that damn disc on the back.

    On second thought, that's actually a custom battery cover. Looks like it has battery contacts and is powered/charged via the base. The first pic show the micro-usb port. Neat design. Can't wait to see what HTC comes up with for the EVO.
