The first official accessory for Google's Nexus One Android phone is now available. The desktop dock goes for $45 directly from Google. (Click the "Get your phone" button then scroll down to "Accessories.")
Strangely enough, you don't actually get to see the dock when you're ordering the thing. You have to go to the Nexus One technical specs for that. And there you learn that the dock will automatically launch the clock app. From there you can:
- Check the local time and weather
- Set and clear alarms
- Watch a slideshow of your photos
- Play music
- Dim your phone's display for nighttime use
The dock also comes with a 3.5mm-to-RCA cable so you can run it into your stereo, if you so choose. No word yet
on any Bluetooth capability, or on the rumored car dock. Do note that this dock does not sync the phone with a computer. [Google]
Update: Sure enough, the printable user guide (pdf link) confirms that music is transmitted from the phone to the dock via Bluetooth, and then it can be pumped into your stereo. (Nice find, jdmoore81!)
