The myTouch 4G is T-Mobile's top-of-the-line Android phone, so it was a given that you would want a great media docking and charging station for it. They delivered. True to its name, the dock swivels so you can use the device horizontally as well as vertically, and the Bluetooth connection when combined with the 3.5mm audio output from the dock itself make for the perfect desktop media center.
Usage is simple -- slide your myTouch 4G into the dock, making sure that the micro USB connector is aligned, plug the dock into a power supply via its own micro USB connector, and go. The fit is good, and the non-slip surface on the inside of the recessed area makes sure that your myTouch 4G won't slip out. It's also designed to be used with the standard USB to micro USB cable and connect to your computer, making for easy syncing and charging at the same time, and any audio accessories that use a 3.5 mm jack can be connected for great sound.
The dock itself is well built, with a weighted non-slip base, and comes in a glossy black finish that looks great as long as you keep your fingerprints off of it. The swivel feature is actually pretty useful, as well. I went into it figuring it was a gimmick, but being able to have your phone horizontal to watch video or surf the web, and vertical to use for calling and messaging is handy after all. If you have a myTouch 4G, it's something you should have a look at, and to me is well worth the investment. Hit the break for some more pictures.
