Has there been any word about docks for this phone? With the charging port being on bottom of the phone as well as being covered I could see it being a bit more troublesome. Does anyone know if the charge port cover is fully removable or on a hinge?

I would love to see a quality car dock produced.

i am sure it is removable, but it might not go back on

The official dock will undoubtably use wireless charging - which should make it easier to put on and off. The dock will probably be expensive though.

It will have a wireless charging pad. There are several options (http://www.geek.com/articles/mobile/...-dna-20121114/). But the official one will be the pad from LG.

Good idea, except how am I going to use it as a clock by the bed?

I was wondering the same thing, I can't imagine how much a wireless charging car dock would go for, the regular ones from Verizon are expensive enough!

I'm guessing it will be around $80 at verizon, if it is indeed wireless charging. At that point, I'd probably look into putting a Nexus 7 in my dash where the radio was.

Exactly what I did. Aside from the wow factor, I simply got tired of having to delicately insert/remove my phone from the cradle worrying each time I was going to snap off the charger, scratch something, and just weaken its lifespan overall. I'm going to get the DNA however just so that I can finally slap a phone into the dock without even thinking about it. After I sell my car of course.
