I used my X2 as a night clock, and I dropped the $20 on a dock and loved it. Now that I have the HD, I would like another dock.

The Moto flip stand deal is $40 with cable, and that sounds awful.
Do you guys have generic docks? What do you use?

This is what I'm looking into. As long as I can charge Landscape, I don't really care.

Thanks in advance

I'm also looking for a nice dock. The BlueLounge one looks slick, but I don't like it that I would have to separately attach my charge cable. I don't think one exists yet for the HD so I'm just waiting. I'm sure they'll release something that has charging built in. (and it will be expensive I'm sure... )

I'm actually doing just that. Partial prototype turned out nicely, I'm printing the full version right now. Files will be on Thingiverse and GitHub as soon as I've verified the design.

Now I only need to find someone who can measure the resistances on the USB cable so it will go into dock mode automatically.

Please post the link, I have friends with printers, and I'd love a dock where I don't have to worry about a cable to plug into when everything is dark!

Here you go: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:34668

The USB spacing is good but I can't verify that it is perfect, I'm holding off assembly until I can find the proper ID pin resistance.

I'm also going to start a thread here momentarily -> tomorrow.

I've heard from an unconfirmed source that the Bionic dock works with the Razr HD. I've bought one from Ebay, I'll let you know if it works, or what tweaking/modding might be necessary to make it work.

Most of the HD docks were for the OG razr, not the "razr HD".

The pins are reversed, so you'll have to dremel it, hack it, hot glue it, cyanoacrylic it, duct tape it, etc.....

Let us know how that works out!

I had a razr XT910 before and at least for the european device, the direction of the pins are the same as on the XT925. For example, a customized atrix lapdock for use with a razr does also fit for the razr hd.
