Every BRODIT holder (as other car docks usually) can be turned portrait or landscape. Mine for GTab was mounted onto a tilt swivel so you can also adjust the angle.
They usually build either "passive" and "active" (with cig lighter plug) holders.
You can mount it on a window suction cup system, or on a BRODIT Pro CLip that is the safest car fixation (different clips depending car model and position desired). if you change car you change the proclip and keep your cradle, if you change phone you keep your Proclip and change the cradle.

Im guessing the swedish guys over at Brodit will come with one for the Xperia Z pretty soon, they got all the best car docks in my opinion.
Normally they also release a bigger version for the people who got a plastic grip on their phone as well

Check out brodit.se, they got mounts for most phones

Today I was told by Brodit that cardholder will be ready within next two weeks. And it, or at least some models, will use holes at side for charging.

That's awesome! Messing with the flappy ports was no real options for me. I hope they launch soon. Any comments on suggested pricings?

Hey! The Brodit seems to be a good option for the Xperia Z .
I also saw the Devium Dash , it`s only for iphones so far, but they said their working on a version for Android and Windows smart phones. I think this would be interesting if they come up with an Xperia Z option which uses the pogo pins for charging. (I can`t posts outside links yet but a quick google search will show the producers website)

No it has to be active so it stops the need to open the charger flap every time you get in and out of the car,it would do my head in!
come on brodit we are all waiting for the active one.

It's a start

Btw, is it just me, or does the passive holder look like a halfway decent wallmounted holder for home as well?

Brodit looks like a very nice and secure option for using the XPZ in the car, however one would have to constantly remove the case on the phone in order to use it.

Something like this might be a better alternative for the more lazier users.

Although i agree with the majority, those flaps are pretty annoying and active Brodit mount would definitely win it for me.

Looking at Brodit's passive holder, although it has swivel backing, I get the feeling it may not be safe using phone in landscape position and its only designed for portrait position.
