    If anyone buys this and tries it with a Passport, please post here. I'm very curious.

    I really think they should have brought back the charging contacts or the magnetic type from the PlayBook. And Qi charging.

    These features would be nice for a premium, flagship, "save the company" phone that costs $600...(sigh)

    If only they would listen to what the people want!

    I have the Z10 cradle, I actually didn't realize it was never released. Sad, it was a quality piece of hardware, very solid, certainly the best BB cradle I've used. I can understand though, without improved landscape support, it kinda missed the point.

    I've always shied away from wireless charging due to general paranoia about the technology (does it work as well as cable, does it impact battery life, and so on). Also, avoiding the extra cost. But I do wish we could lose more of the wires on these "wireless" devices.

    I suppose I could try charging in the microwave...

    That was never officially sold. If you want to argue that counts, you're be wrong. Those were only obtained via sources within BlackBerry, so no, there was no Z10 dock released because the phone does not do major functions in landscape mode.

    Well, I have this Z10 official dock which is readily avail on Amazon. There are plenty of functions that work in landscape, including Bedside mode, contacts, email, texts, pictures, weather, calendar, browser, youTube, maps, Skype, reminder, Storymaker, File Manager, WhatsApp... vast majority of apps I've added (NY Times, Room Tuneswork etc.) work in landscape. Plus it's got a full size HDMI cable output.

    I cringe at the stress that "cradle" puts on the microusb connection. The old ones were so great.

    BBerry one is very well made, perfect fit; I think there's more stress pulling/pushing a cable.
