And if you make a call, is the "in call" screen also in landscape mode?

Just tried the in call screen and I'm afraid it defaults to portrait mode when a call comes in while plugged into the dock..(perhaps overlooked by the SE devs) wonder if I can do an adb logcat when I plug the phone in to find out what it's doing to the home screen... I'll have a play.

Yes it charges and uses otg devices (keyboards, mice and thumbdrives) simultaneously.
it's the only thing I've found that will do that too.

I highly doubt any electronic engineer would be able to do it without a scope meter and other circuit testing equipment, let alone just off photos, but if I pull it apart again (since you said please) I'll get some pics for ya..

Cheers, and if you do work something out either with these or without please please share it with the users on XDA.. it would be a world first (from what I have read) and you will make many Xperia and Samsung, HTC, Motorola etc people very happy.

I juz got one too. However, if I connect the phone to livedock and switch off the mains when I sleep, when I wake up, the fully charged phone is @ 30%!!! omg!!!

Remember not to off the mains or disconnect it from the dock when not using. It's a battery drainer!!!

Keyboard and mouse works, game pads should work.. but it might depend on the game pad, just use a usb hub to plug in as many USB devices as you want... the Live dock supplies power so all good
