Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus finally arrived in my pocket today – after many delays by Verizon, but at least it is finally here. I was so happy to get to and it is simply amazing – no need for me to rehash all of it’s tricked out features (did I mention how cool FACE UNLOCK is?), they are all over the web.
Spoiled or not, however, I always buy several desktop docks/media docks so when my phone is at home or at work, it has a place to ‘sit,’ charge and be happy, while out of my way and not getting damaged. I also tend to buy the one for the car, but I don’t want one for my windshield anymore, I want one in my console.
So, I try to buy the docks with the phone while at Verizon. They said they aren’t in yet. No biggie, that’s why we have Amazon, right? Nope. Amazon doesn’t have the official Samsung desktop dock either! So off to Samsung’s site I go. The item is no longer even on their site?!?!
When a new phone is released, obviously the carriers are subsidizing the majority of them, hence why they want you to buy yet another car charger, travel charger and a bunch of cases, that is where the profit is. But if they do not have the high-end pieces, what is one to do?!
I talked to Verizon, they don’t have anything. I couldn’t get through to Samsung, tried several times with their live chat – so no word on that front.
I want my Samsung Galaxy Nexus Dock! I’ve found it in several places, one said it would be released on 12/23/11. Really? Not in time for the launch? And then another site said:
This is crazy. What are they thinking?! I need my accessories for my new phone!
