Magnet lightly holds. The surface of the orb is quite sticky and holds it just fine by itself - the magnet is obviously less apparent with a case on.

No case:

Thing is pretty awesome.

Definitely not strong enough to use as a car mount though.

Good to know.

Unfortunately, Play Store won't let me order one. My address is incorrectly input but I can't change it. Keep getting error messages.

So there is a magnet in it? I thought it would only be the anti-slip rubber that they try and sell for car dashboards. One question, does it work with the phone horizontal? That's something my Nokia DT-910 can't do.

Yes there is a magnet, yes it works with the phone in landscape.

However, it doesn't activate DreamScene or whatever it does with the N4 (also doesn't flip home screens to landscape like it does in car mode).

The dream mode is a 4.2 feature so I don't think anyone expected it to be on the DNA. And on stock there isn't landscape homedscreens. You'll either need a Rom or a 3rd party launcher for that.
