Samsung Galaxy Nexus Car Dock

In the United Kingdom, we're fortunate enough to have had the brilliant Samsung Galaxy Nexus since mid-November. Almost two months on from release, what we're still yet to see are any of the OEM accessories for the device. Two of the leading British online retailers for mobile equipment, Expansys and Clove Technology, have now started to offer some actual timeframes for getting their stock of the accessories in. Both companies though have quite different expected release dates. 

Clove have got the full range, including the sweet looking vehicle mount shown here, showing "first stock expected mid-January." We're in mid-January now, so this could mean we won't have to wait much longer. 

Expansys however are expecting to release the items on Feb 29. A significant difference from the Clove expectations, but it's important to note that Expansys are not always in first with what they sell. It's a lot more pinpoint though than "mid-January." 

Hopefully we really won't have too much longer to wait. Theres a lot to be said for utilising official OEM accessories, and my wallet is crying out to buy them.

UK retailers beginning to offer up dates for official Galaxy Nexus accessories


i have one on order from amazon uk. they keep pushing the date back but they have not charged my car yet so i dont mind. I just wish i can have it sooner

So I see a usb and audio port on the mount. But only the three prong side port for the phone. Does the side port transmit music and charge the phone?

I've used the Nexus One car dock and it used its pins for charging and bluetooth audio streaming for music and calls. I expect the same here.

NO access to any buttons...does this mean the screen is going to be on at all times? Not really a fan of that but I guess I'll get used to it if I have to...
