    Thanks for the link

    It's a pretty poor showing when HP gets beaten to releasing a cradle by a 3rd party vendor.

    Interesting that it appears to be a very basic cradle and nothing more, as in no USB host capabilities. I wonder if the USB cable and the power cable are permanently attached, or plug in?

    Thanks David - also noticed Boxwave have a reasonably priced ($13.45) USB sync cable with what looks like the appropriate 24 pin connector that could be reconfigured to allow USB host mode operation as documented in emilb's excellent post. I wonder if Boxwave could be convinced to build this cable for us? Anyone with contacts at Boxwave that could help make this happen?

    If you look at the enlarged image, you can see that they both plug in to the back of the cradle, a barrel jack for power and a mini-USB plug for power and sync. If you wanted to rewire this cradle for USB Host, you'd have to make the connections inside the cradle, which would probably be a bit difficult.

    I believe it maybe impossible as apparently this "dock" doesn't use the docking connector, but instead the mini USB connector. At least that is what has been suggested on another site.

    Looking again at the enlarged images, yes, it does just use the mini-USB. Darn.

    So I guess that means if using this cradle, don't expect it to really charge the unit while you use it?
