I have a Motorola Atrix and the official car dock. It work like a charm and you can even remove a bracket to fit a cased phone in it. Now my Atrix is dead so yeah ...

Wondering why manufacturers don't all just release official docks.

The idea of modding a normal dock could be a good idea if a oem one doesn't surface.

From the pictures I've seen the desk dock takes a Micro USB input so wouldn't be that difficult to mod.

Brodit bracket to fix it to the car interior, NFC tag on the dock to toggle BT, screen brightness, volume up etc. Not sure quite how you'd get the phone to stay in the dock though, particularly portrait.

Hi-tech elastic band?

I suppose Brodit will release a holder for the Xperia Z similar to the one for the Xperia V. It will use the dock power connectors on the side.

I just wished they allow any micro-USB cable to the holder, not having their own soldered cable.

Sounds great. Would it be only for landscape.. or portrait as well?

They swivel, you can put them in landscape, although they're most comfortable in landscape usually.

As others have said though, it's a shame they use soldered/molded cables, rather than allowing microusb.
