I have a vzw note 2 and am looking for a US company or website that is legit and has the samsung galaxy note 2 "smart dock" in stock. Anyone seen that lately? I called my local vzw retail store and they told me all they have are a couple of cases.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks a bunch

I called up cdw as the 'availability' said to call. Rep told me it is on back order and has been for some time. They are anticipating getting some stock the 2nd week of March.

Is there a huge benefit from getting the samsung smart dock as opposed to getting something like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Case Compatible HDMI Charging Dock which is only about 40 bucks?

Yeah I would like to know also what the benefit of getting the official Samsung dock versus a generic. And does anyone know how future proof this is? like will it work with the Note 3, 4, etc?

The smart dock has 3 USB ports that'll let you turn the Note 2 into a desktop pc.

Yeah but if you get a blue tooth keyboard and mouse you wouldn't really need the extra ports would you?

Also you can use a hard drive or flash drive to view files or movies on there. Also comes with an extra wall charger($40 value). Plus if you dont want to have to buy a bluetooth keyboard and mouse but have many wired keyboards and mice around why not? It'll be cheaper than having to purchase those along with the dock.

Be careful with some older wired mice though. Some people (including me) have noticed that connecting an old wired mouse turns the screen of the Note 2 off (a good thing) but drops the FPS on the monitor/TV significantly.
