Basically a stand with a "hi-tech" ultra grippy coating designed to hold mobile phones / mp3 players whilst they are charging. Also acts as a USB hub and card reader.

Comes with adapters for "all" mobile phones / devices (Although review suggests that its really just MOST...).

Play selling for £12.99 delivered, which seems to be a few pounds cheaper than elsewhere.

Personally I think this is going to be perfect for my xperia x10,Ii like the look of it a lot.

The review seems to indicate that whilst it can be used to charge it cannot be used to sync with your PC. That said, however, I plan on taking mine apart when it arrives and sorting this out with some creative wiring I'll post pics and instructions once its working


Pics to follow below are taken from the review, I cannot take credit for them.

Enjoy

If voting cold, please state a reason ^^

Hmm, I've been loooking for something like this to use with my mobile at my desk at work, £10 is the magic price point though

How silly it charges but doesn't sync. The USB data connector must just go to the card ports at the side. That said this is a good price for it for anyone interested.

If you post in Misc asking for a play voucher, you will probably get a £2 one, brings it to 10.99, close enough?

Yeah, but i can see why they did it this way. Not the way i would have designed it, but it does make the construction much simpler. Having said that, i dont think it will take more than 30 minutes and a wee bit of soldering to fix

why expired?

:xwell i dont know if i got a bad one but the damn thing never worked properly...when chargeing the sidways force exerted by the chargeing lead caused the phone to gradually move sideways and then fell off....i was wiping it as instructed every couple of hours to make it stick so i ended up sticking some plastic on it to create a lip for the phone to sit on,on a more usefull note if you have one that works you can charge and sync by plugging your usb sync cable into one of the integral usb sockets an it works ...well for my LG Cookie it does.oh and the card reader is handy..... Shame About The Sticky Bit........:whistling:
