Nexus One Dock Now Available for $45

Those of you with the Nexus One are advised to swing by the Google store and take a look at the new Desktop Dock.  For $45, users get the dock as well as a 3.5mm-to-RCA audio cable so you can listen to your handset’s music directly through your stereo.

Once you place your Nexus One in the dock, it immediately opens the clock application. From there, you’ll be able to do things such as set alarms, play music, check weather, and watch slideshows of your photos.

The first time you insert your Nexus One into the dock, it pairs with it via Bluetooth.  At that point, you’ll be prompted as to whether you want to play music via the 3.5mm stereo audio jack.  It’s also pointed out in the user manual that you should never connect your dock to a computer as it does not transmit data.

    It wasn't very clear whether the dock comes with its own charger to plug into a power-socket?
    Or Is it just a dock and you need to use your phone's charger?

      I was wondering the same thing. The manual indicates it does. " Plug the supplied charger into…."

    Hey guys,

    i just bought the Case-Mate Google Nexus One Gelli Case ( http://www.case-mate.com/Google-Cases/Case-Mate-G… ) and i'm interested in buying the docking station as well but I can't figure out if the phone is going to fit properly on the dock, with the gelli skin. Any ideas/help ?

    Thank you in advance

    What happens if I want to talk on the phone while it is docked? Can I use the speaker phone? Will the dock amplify the microphone, too? Can I walk around the room, leaving the phone docked, and converse with my caller as with a speaker-phone system?
