Galaxy Nexus Portrait HDMI Dock Now In-stock and Shipping at Expansys

Forget the $90 portrait POGO dock for the Galaxy Nexus, the HDMI portrait dock is now in-stock at Expansys USA. The description does not mention if this will work with the LTE version of the phone, but we had the chance at CES to dock our phone (with the extended battery) into the portrait HDMI station and it worked flawlessly. Still, the slight differences in GSM and LTE versions of this phone have been a big enough pain that you never know. If you have cash to spend, may want to jump on this quickly though before they run out.

Buy. ($59.99)

Cheers NorCalDroid!

  • FYI you can get a pitchfork at amazon for $31.14. Looks pretty quality. I didn’t look at the torches they have

    • JohnPA2006

      Only problem with this pitchfork is the level of feces coming from samsung is of the more creamy liquid kind. This would only stir it around and make it more messy.

  • Kerb7777

    Thank you for making a HDMI dock for my Nexus!!!

  • Usmc1488

    This is why moto keeps my business. I love the accesories that are offered. Each Droid ive owned has been accompanied by a car dock and home dock. For my next purchase I have to look at what I want more: Software or Hardware support via accesories.

  • Kevinbakon

    Has anyone else noticed that this dock is no longer listed on Samsung’s site?

  • my friend’s step-mother makes $73 every hour on the computer. She has been out of a job for 7 months but last month her pay was $7220 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read more on this web site LazyCash5.Com

    I just want a $49 landscape dock that uses POGO so I can charge my phone while looking at it on my desk, is that too much to ask for.

  • Jdstell

    Oh awesome, I can’t wait to buy this $60 dock and use the micro-USB-saving 3-pin plug on the side of my nexus….. oh wait, nevermind.

  • POS


  • I’ve only had 1 dock and that was a car dock for my DX.  Obviously used mounted to my windshield for navigation.  My question is, what is the point of these HDMI docks and the home POGO docks besides not having to plug a wire, possibly 2, directly into your device?  Are they all for bragging rights?

    • Levi Wilcox

      As I posted earlier, and anyone who’s used a lot of docks can tell you, repeated plugging/unplugging can damage the port and is fairly common among desktop docks.

      • Usmc1488

        Not true, Ive used a home dock with my OG, DROID X, and X2. The ports still worked for me.

        • Levi Wilcox

          Yeah. Mine still “worked” too, but the usb charging cord wouldn’t stay plugged in because the port had become so tweaked over time.

  • Inquizitor

    Having to choose between landscape + pogo and HDMI is frankly insulting.

  • rcpa

    Now all we need is Ubuntu for Android.

  • Why in the world is this so expensive? Its a piece of plastic with a microUSB connector. IT does nothing. This should be no more than $10. I’ll wait for a sale or a 3rd party device.

    • Bodhiballer

      Because they think we’re stupid.  

      • feztheforeigner

        Because they think the average consumer is so stupid they’ll buy it and the tech community adores their phones so much they’ll actually spend it…

    • edaddy

      Because, fortunately or unfortunately there are people who are either ignorant or won’t blink an eye at spending that amount of money for a piece of plastic.  Manufacturers know this and thus, you have a high priced piece of plastic.

    • it is worth noting that it does the function of an MHL adapter and offers HDMI out.  Still overpriced, but give it a little more credit than Verizon’s car dock.

    • WARNING: Product NOT compatible with VERIZON edition ’Galaxy NEXUS i515.

      • Guest

        And “Pre-order to BE FIRST”  I’ve seen this a few months ago could be months before it ships.

  • well my new nexus is on the way, wonder if it will be any better….. sure hope so

  • i’ll save my money and just lay it on the table, what a waste

  • saimin

    Not going to pay $90 for this. I’ll wait for the $10 knockoffs to show up on EBay.
    Samsung has to realize they aren’t going to sell many at prices like that.

    • Billyrouth2000

      Uh its 60 not 90

  • Steve Edholm

    Unless it has a headphone jack, no way.  I got one that fits my expanded batter for $20 on Amazon.  The accessories for this is phone have just angered me.

    • Which do you have?

  • gobluefoot

    I used to be a dock freak, getting both docks for any phone i bought, but since i paid for the cheapo plastic car dock, and the home dock never seemed to be coming out, i gave up on the car dock and put it in my cup holder, and just have the phone plugged in on my night table, silly spending so much for a plastic conduit of electricity (in my opinion)

    • 4n1m4L

      Sammy is waiting on 4.0.4 to release it.

  • Infernox51

    No good accessories….no recent updates….is this thing getting abandoned or something???

    • chrismcconkey

      The Dev community sure hasn’t abandoned it.

    • Liderc

      While I agree with the no accessories, I can’t agree with no recent updates.  No other phone even has ICS.  We know they’ve already finished 4.04 for the Nexus, so they’re definitely working on it.  Hard to compare “no recent updates” when no other phone even exists that runs the same OS.

      • Derek Gelinas

        That’s not correct.  There are HTC sensations in the wild running it.

        • Liderc

          Sorry, there are no phones with an Official ICS OTA.

  • Dshudson

    Got news for ya, the Galaxy Nexus sux and I want my TBolt back. 

    • Billyrouth2000

      If you really believe that than you are an idiot!

      • Dshudson

        I do believe it.. I like to make calls and send texts.. I also like using data.. the radio is the worst in history. 

        • feztheforeigner

          That’s very wrong. I’ve found mine to have a fantastic radio

        • Ya. If you need a phone to work like a, well, a phone, then you need to look elsewhere. What a POS that phone was for the 2 weeks I owned it. Fanbois can go pound sand. 

  • You actually can’t even order the $90 POGO dock from Samsung anymore.  It’s no longer on their website, and gives you a 404 if you try to use the link that was provided here on Droid-Life a while back.

  • Tabe

    Oh wait, you didn’t say vehicle dock… Nevermind……………

  • Gr8Ray

    First sentence fail: the POGO dock is landscape, not portrait.

  • Scottyb112

    I cant see spending $60-$90 to stand my phone up in something.. really what purpose does it serve to charge those prices? $14.99 and im in

  • Cam

    Car dock! NAO!

  • Chris G

    Don’t see the point in this.

    Already have an hdmi cable for the multi port at the bottom of the GN.  

  • Levi Wilcox

    I really wouldn’t want the weight of the phone to damage the microusb connection. Happened on my OG with a landscape dock, I can only image how damaging this dock could be over time. The pogo dock is expensive but at least it’s not going to break my phone if I use it everyday.

    • Jdstell


  • chrismcconkey

    What I want to know is where is the POGO windshield mount???

    •  you said it brother

    • Levi Wilcox

      They aren’t making one.

      • Tabe

        Link confirming this?

      • chrismcconkey

        When did they announce that? If I had known that I probably wouldn’t have gotten the Nexus, but waited for something else that was unlockable.

        • Levi Wilcox

          They never announced they were making any for the LTE version. They only showed off the Euro version which has been confirmed to not fit the i515.

  • The price of this dock

    Is too damn high

    • mjmedstarved

      wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to high.

    • Tweekex

      Hgih for sure.

      • Bodhiballer

        They must be high.  

        • 4n1m4L

          i got an mhl adapter off amazon for like $13…

          • $10 bucks at monoprice for MHL http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10833&cs_id=1083314&p_id=8805&seq=1&format=2

          • JohnPA2006

            I read your post, then read up on the product. I placed my order already.

      • lol did not catch that when I made it

    • ilovetechnology
  • NorCalDroid

    I kinda like this version better than the pogo pins. Plus you get HDMi added functionality. Makes worth more than $90 landscape dock.

  • Guest

    Chop the price in half and I’d buy one.

    • Guest

      Oh snap, not landscape. In that case, meh.

  • mrjackson

    I still want the landscape dock. I miss the dock I had for my Blackberry Storm.

  • htowngtr

    No landscape, no thanks.

    • sc0rch3d

      i keep telling myself to read the titles better….my mind automatically inserted LANDSCAPE and i quickly clicked 🙁
