    There are stands for it and some stands that have a built in usb port on the side.

    There aren't any charging pods like what's out there for the other phones with the connectors on the bottom of the phone.

    They can't as the older phones had the contacts on the BOTTOM of the phone. The new cradles will have a microUSB connector built into the side and you will slide your Curve in left to right to get it to connect. This type of stand is already available though I don't recall who is actually marketing it.

    I'm supposed to get the 8530 as an upgrade for my work 8330. It stinks that they removed the external contacts for charging, just a lot easier to drop in the cradle then to line up and set a plug each time!

    Interesting that the "higher end" models (ie 9700 that I have for personal use) still have external contacts for charging pods.

    So why not just use the 9700 for both work and personal? That is what I do. Our company is still using the 83xx series so I upgraded to the 8520 on my own, put the sim card in the new phone, then synced with BES at work and it is great. I only have to carry one phone, they own the plan and I own the phone.
