I'm just wondering if there will be a dock for the Xperia Pro, or anyone knows of any details one way or the other.
I know the Xperia Play has a dock and I think a dock would be really useful for the Pro -
especially if the Xperia Pro is being aligned as a business phone, which I believe it is.
Thanks for your help.

I don' think so.
It is unlikely but possible. X-Pro has a USB port on the upper side of the case - it is theoretically possible to construct a dock with hinged USB plug.
Phone connection with the dock in one plane would be impractical - ie. with fixed USB plug - phone into the dock could only be push (slip).
How would the connection with the dock would look like in more or less upright position?
The idea of the dock considered here is economically justified as a relatively inexpensive. But who cares?

Thanks for the response.
It'd be really handy to drop the phone in a dock when at work, and then again on a seperate dock at home each day.
To have it automatically connect up to the PC (and/or TV/Monitor) and charge from a dock would be great.
I kind of wonder why the Xperia Play would get a dock whereas the Pro wouldn't.
Also, it makes that decision between a Play and a Pro that much more difficult..!
Having to choose between docking capabilities and a QWERTY keyboard (both equally important features to me).
Tough decision indeed.

I don't know if there will be any dock for Xperia Pro.
I'll forward your feedback on this, and let's hope it's something that hopefully will be released later for Xperia Pro.

(...) It'd be really handy to drop the phone in a dock...
Hi, It is accurate remark!
We are all accustomed to dropping the phone into the dock.
On one condition, when the phone's port is located on the bottom of the housing.
Eventually, at the side of the case as in the Xperia PLAY, for example.
By the way, totally agree with you on the dock for Xperia Pro.
Greetings to Johan - make sure that the feedback reached its target.

Many thanks Johan.
I think a dock would be a great drawcard for business users and along with the preloaded business applications would help market the product very well.
