  • Simple, albeit light dock for iphone4

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - It fits the iphone4 perfectly
    - Inexpensive stand for the phone
    - Looks like the real deal
    It's a simple dock with an anti-slip bottom and a line-out.

    Cons:

    - Doesn't fit an iphone4 with a case, do not use this if you have put on a case or bumper.
    - A bit too light and the dock connector doesn't let go easily
    - prevents audio output even when no stereo cable attached to line-out.

    OtherThoughts:

    It will not charge the iphone when directly connected to a laptop. You'll have to attach it to a powered USB hub for it to be able to charge while syncing.
    It's a bit of a shame the line-out prevents the phone giving audio even when there is no wire connected. though this is a minor detail.

    Bottomline:

    It's an inexpensive dock which works great for the iphone4 as long as you're not using a case or bumper. With a case or bumper it's mechanically impossible to connect the iphone.
    You also need to grab hold of the dock when removing the phone because the connector attached to the phone a bit too firmly. Perhaps this can be solved by weighing down the dock. It can also be solved by using an adhesive at the base but that's not really convenient on a desk.
