Moto X PowerDock

Another Moto X accessory goes on sale before the device itself.

Motorola is going another step in the direction of having a full accessory lineup for the Moto X at launch now with the new Griffin "PowerDock" for the device. There are very few frills here, and what we see from the two product shots included in the listing are a basic base with a Micro USB plug to charge the phone and a cradle in the back to hold it up at a steep angle. Around the back you can see another Micro USB input for the power adapter into the wall, just as we'd expect.

This dock is prominently displayed as being made by Griffin, just like the car dock, so we have to assume that we may see an even broader lineup of Moto X-specific Griffin accessories in the pipeline. Remember the phone isn't even on sale yet, so we applaud Motorola for having accessories ready to go out of the gate — we certainly can't say the same for Nexus accessories over the years.

Basic black color with a shiny white base plate seems to be the only color option here, and again you're looking at $39.95 for this accessory direct from Motorola.
