First Impressions of the Galaxy Nexus Desktop Dock (Video)


The GSM version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was released back in November of 2011. Here is it the middle of April 2012 and one of the first official accessories to take advantage of the three gold POGO pins is finally available.

The first thing you’ll want to note is the dock will not work with the LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus, however, it will work with either the stock or the official extended battery for the GSM version of the phone, though the fit is noticeably more snug.

Next, there is no USB cable to power the dock or the phone. You’ll have to use one that you already have, but any should do. However, the official Samsung charger will work better and charge your phone faster.

Last, you must be running Android 4.0.4 (or later) to get the full functionality from the Dock (including audio out via the provided 3.5mm port).

Watch the video to see how it works on a stock phone, as well as one running CyanogenMod.
