Galaxy S8 DeX Station and other accessories now available to pre-order

If you're all lined up to get a brand new Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ when it lands on the virtual shelves you can preorder everything you need to go along with it from Amazon.

The DeX Station (opens in new tab) that lets you use your new S8 like a computer with a mouse, keyboard, and a monitor is $150 and ships April 20. USB ports, Ethernet, and an HDMI connection mean you can get set up in no time with zero fuss.

When you're not chained to a desk you can hook up with Samsung's official cases. The S View Flip Cover (opens in new tab) is $60, as is the new Keyboard Cover (opens in new tab) if you really need that BlackBerry feel. If you're just looking for something to keep scratches, dirt, and random gunk away from your new shiny, the clear protective case (opens in new tab) checks in at $20.

April 21 will be here before you know it, and it's always fun to buy stuff for your new phone. See everything Samsung has to offer for the Galaxy S8 family at the link below.

  • Waste of money
  • So were you
  • I ordered the clear protector a couple of days ago. I hope it gets here well before the 20th in case T-Mobile ships my S8+ early
  • Any demo videos of DeX around?
  • YouTube
  • Ordered the clear view case and a battery pack
  • $150 bucks for a charging dock station that gives you ports to plug in a monitor and a keyboard/mouse?! Ouch!
  • Microsoft begged/bribed Samsung to do this whole dex thing
  • Intrigued. However, isn't the Audio jack underneath the phone? How is the sound ported out? Clearly the HDMI here does not support audio. Bluetooth perhaps? Also, have most other common apps been scaled up for the bigger resolution? I heard during the initial demo release that only some Microsoft apps scale up not Chrome and such. Going to pass on this for a bit but I do see some advantages.
  • Interesting issues. For instance, for me to be willing to use the S8 like a PC at least part of the time, I'd need to be able to web browse like on a PC, and be able to use MS office like on a PC. Plus would I need a touchscreen monitor? Would I be able to arrange open app windows like I do on a PC? If all I get is a much larger screen with mouse and keyboard, it would not be worth it.
  • so we need to spend another $150 in order to use what's already built into the phone.
  • Dock is as over priced just like the many made for Windows devices.
