Q10 docking station?
Anyone seen word on this, haven't seen any connection points on the Q10 pictures like the 9900 has although there is what could be a connection point on bottom of the device.
hoping for a dock with bedside mode, otherwise I may upgrade to another device and just keep my 9900 for bbm.

Sorry to let you down. But if have looked at the countless bb q10 pictures on this Site. You will notice that the jacks for the charging and hdmi cords are on the side of the device. Good luck searching for another phone, not much buttons options on the market. Typically ones offered are low end or not a smart phone at all.. :/
Edit: I just wanted to add. If I were you I would wait a few months After the release of the bbq10 if a docking station is going to come out at all it would likely be out by then.~εrin

I'm not sure why you would ditch a phone just because it is missing a docking station. A simple solution is to plug in your phone and then lean it up against something on your bedside table (Lamp? Glass of water? Bookcase?). I feel like they would make some sort of dock that goes up the side of the phone and stands it up.

Q10 docking station?
I just use the plastic case to stand it up and plug in the cable with the clock on. Simple I bought a docking station but couldnt use it after having to put a Seidio belt clasp case on it. The other feature I really like on the Q10 is the micro SD slot for 64GB. A real pocket dynamo.

For sure there won't be the similar docking station as we know it from 9900, as Q10 is missing the connectors on the bottom.
But perhaps we will experience something totally new ? Maybe there would be a docking station using the micro-USB connector that would allow you to synch the Q10 with your computer (opposite to 9900) ? :-)

Re: Q10 docking station?
Crackberry is selling a charger, extra battery package deal. It isn't shipping yet.
The phone sits sideways on the charger (to access the usb port). And the backup battery fits in a slot in the charger.
I ordered mine. For years I have kept a spare battery in my wallet.
Crackberry has a picture.

I was just watching the latest q10 video with Jeff Gadway; he highlights that the entire frame is solid milled powder coated steel . . So I'm wondering if one can just still drop this into a charging cradle, maybe no steel contacts needed since the whole frame is? Or could there be a cradle where contacts on the back support line up with the BB logo/nfc contacts?

This is going to be yet another turn off for the Q10 for some users. Yeah I know we can't have everything that previous models had, but why get rid of some of the key features?
When I get to work I love tossing my 9900 on my dock and having it sit on my desk. It looms clean, professional, and co workers always comment on it. Good or bad.
O well, guess we will see what other devices BB comes out with this year, and if any will have some of the features that the Q10 is missing. I doubt it though....

The only reason I always get the docking stations are to save the usb ports because they can and do fail which causes havoc all round. I always don't like fumbling in the dark to plug in the cord. You can jack the port that way. I hope there is a docking station coming out for the Q10.@blueyestm

If it had wireless charging this wouldn't be a problem but it doesn't seem too so I don't know what the solution is. There is no way you can put it in a dock sideways without it looking completely stupid like you could with the z10.
This and it missing swipes to close apps is kinda worrying. The first z10 dev alpha had the same problem but this is happening on final hardware.

My charging dock has allowed my 9930 to replace our old alarm clock. Would be a real shame if the Q10 can't replicate that.March of the Smartphones: Handspring Visor with Digital Link > Handspring Treo 600 > Sprint PPC 6700 > Palm Centro > Blackberry Tour 9630 > Blackberry Bold 9650 > Blackberry Torch 9850 > Palm Treo 755p > Blackberry Bold 9930 > iPhone 4s (issued by work) > Palm Treo 755p > BlackBerry Bold 9930 > BlackBerry Q10

I have already contacted BB HQ to let them know that eliminating charging points for charging cradle was a mistake and asked them to bring them back. Wishful thinking maybe but wanted to give them my feedback.
