UPDATE: It appears that the dock is the regular portrait dock with HDMI, so the photo is wrong at the source.CA sorry guys I don't seem to be able to edit the title of this thread.

From thesource.ca (it's Canada's Radioshack) , it's online only but they can ship to your nearest store. I can't post links yet sorry

I would, however every do it yourself job has only been USB charging unless you are running a custom kernel. The OEM dock does AC charging and invokes the dock mode which gives proper landscape with the OEM launcher.

USB charging is not enough to keep up in Navigation mode.

I found something interesting in the description that they provide (will be higlighted in bold)

The OEM Samsung Desktop Dock is designed to hold the *Samsung Galaxy Nexus while charging it. The dock comes with a standard micro USB input that can be used with either a main charger or USB cable and a 3.5mm audio line-out connection so that you can connect your device to an external speaker for high-quality audio reproduction. The dock has been designed to be used in both portrait and landscape orientations. This means that you can switch from answering emails to watching YouTube clips without having to unplug your device. The dock also has additional volume controls on the side so that you can adjust the volume regardless of the orient of your phone.

I wonder what these additional volume controls are. Because looking at previous pics of the dock I didn't see any actual buttons on it to control the volume. I hope they aren't referring to the volume on the phone or external speakers.

It is just a shame that I had already ordered the dock from expansys.ca and expecting it in a couple of days otherwise I would have went with this option.

Did you get the dock yet? I was told from Samsung Canada HQ that due to the lateness of the device the landscape pogo pin dock would not be released to Canada. That was yesterday

I ordered two of them on April 17th. They are being shipped (from Vancouver). I have the tracking number, and the expected delivery date is April 24th.
