Re: Docking Station

There is no proper dock, such as the Xperia P dock. However the Sony ERICSSON livedock mentioned by uliwooly should do.

Note: Sony may bring out a follow up to the live dock this year to accompany the 2012 phones - I am waiting for that.

If your looking for a speaker dock take a look at this android dock from Philips:

Re: Docking Station

From the Sony Mobile website I can't see an HDMI output for the Livedock. Neither in the gallery or user guide.

Re: Docking Station

The Xperia S has the mini USB port on one side and the HDMI on the other. Therefore there can't be a formal dock, unlike the Xperia P which has both its ports on the same side.  My suggestion would be to have a conventional usb dock and then use the hdmi output as you normaly would, it'll be on the top so should connect easily to your tv.
