Quick question, does anyone with the Xperia dock know if the phone still fits with a case ?
(A thin case like the Nearly There case or the Nillkin hard case)

I remember seeing one video on youtube where they did put XZ with a case on dock - it needed a firm push, but went in without a problem so you'll be able to find a case that will work with official dock.

Re: Official xperia dock work with a case?
got a K frost and it does not fit in the dock properly.
Almost, so you will have to:
- cut the case for pins to make contact
- enlarge the dock just a bit with dremel
& hopefully the pins are aligned

Anyway cover is no pain to remove, an you can let it hang with lanyard while phones docked.

Is it possible to customize the case or the dock to fit this case. I'm not against using a dremmel to adapt the dock to fit but will find out more once that case arrives. I have two other cases both way to big.
