As i found. he original Asus desktop cradle to expensive i have decided to make one my own. Or better assemble of excisting parts.

I ordered a desktop cradle of my former tablet the Tab 10.1 on aliexpress. And an USB cable from Asus.
Opened the box, pulled out the Samsung connector. And removed the plastic housing of the Asus charger connector.
With a little cutting on the old hole of the case. I put in the Asus connector. Glued it with hot glue. Drilled a hole in the back of the case to leave the cable in tact.

And Voila a nice solid desktopcradle. For around $18.

Sorry for the bad pics.....but you have a vision on how it looks..


Good luck on making one of your own.

Here a link of my ordered cradle

Wow that is simply awesome! I'll forward this to our design team as a "Hey check this out". No promises though... me being a TF700 owner, I'd love to have one of these!

I can get a similar stand for the iphone from a store called 5 below. (thay are an east coast store like the dollar store just everything is $5 or less) But I assume I can do the same thing with a stand there and just pop the cable out

Pfew I don't know. I know this because I still had this stand. What's important is that the place of the connector is not to far away of the back of the cradle. So the back of the tablet can rest to the plastic of the cradle. Otherwise the connector bends under an angle. With this configuration it's perfect. (I hope you all understand)

How this holding up after a few weeks of use? I'm a bit skeptical about the the possibly of bending the connector over time. I can deal with a broken connector on the cable, but I don't want it to damage or stretch the internal 40 pin slot.

It's still okay. There is not much weight to stress the connector.
Believe me I am very cautious with my equipment. It's working great. Only thing to look out for when placing it that the connector is in the middle of the port. Solution is making a mark which I didn't.
