Default Desktop Docking Cradle

I bought two of these desktop cradles for my & my wifes Venue phones: http://www.ebay.com/itm/110731141083

They work great, build quality is superb, though my Incipio shell had to be removed for it to fit. Most importantly, the packaging and the cradle itself indicate they are for the Galaxy S II and Optimus series phones.

Seems to me that knowing that our Venue models use the same cradles as the Galaxy S II and LG Optiums opens up more possiblities.

It's not really as much as 'fitted for the venue' as much as it is simply 'fits any device with a micro-usb port'

Unfortunately the primary downside to something like this is there's no back for it, and even if there was it wouldnt fit it very well. There's always the risk of falling or slipping or something onto it and snapping the connector on the phone.

I would guess it wouldn't fit. It says not compatible with Venue Pro which is about the same thickness as Venue with an Otterbox case. However, I could be wrong.

I bought one of those and thought so much of it that I threw it away. It wasn't even good enough to give away.

There is no support for the back of the phone. The USB connector ends up holding the phone. Not a good setup IMO.
Never ask before searching!

Sounds like the slacker radio dock for the s5, except that it's

1) in landscape so that's already a lot
2) the dock connector is much wider

I only use it as a backup as there's always the fear of falling on it and it snapping or something, or even hitting it by accident.
