I think so far there hasn’t been a successful docking solution for smartphones and tablets. There have been several attempts but they all seem to miss a point or two. And these points are:
- it must look good, it is going to be somewhere visible.
- one hand operation. Design isn’t only looks.
- be universal since chargers and devices have different chargers.
- be able to charge more than one device. In our home we have four.
- be compatible with cases or half of the time it will be useless.
Everdock duo seems to tick all of the above. Made from a single piece of aluminium and comes in four colors. Have a look.
