    I thought I would share this with you guys as these seem to be fairly rare and don't seem to be well documented on the internet.

    I have finally obtained an OEM BlackBerry Z10 Multimedia dock. I received it for free from a BlackBerry employee

    This thing is really great. Certainly seems of higher quality then the fake/non-OEM docks available. The fake ones seem like junk to be honest and that is why I didn't bother getting one.The weight is substantial of this. The surface is finished with a soft-touch like material that feels like the PlayBook. The Z10 slides in the slot very easy with minimal guidance and the micro-HDMI and micro-USB both go in the phone very easily. The transformer shell folds around this dock.

    At the back is a full size HDMI port, as well as a micro-USB port. I have hooked it up to a TV so I can stream content and charge at the same time without loose chords everywhere.

    Enjoy the pictures of my new little setup.

    This looks nice, the only downside for me is that I keep my Z10 in a case so that would mean that I would have to remove it from the case every time I want to dock it.

    Most of the haters seem to think I don't need it. As you can see in the picture I have a Z10 though.

    Did you ask the BB employee why they aren't being sold commercially?
    Or the rest of us will have to wait for the 'going out of the hardware business' sale and hope they end up on ebay!

    Damn, I should've have bought one when they were floating around the Marketplace here! It looks excellent, would make a lovely dock for bedside mode.

    The iPhone can't, but certain Android ROM's can. CyanogenMod, for instance:

    Bedside Mode goes into landscape for me, even without the dock.

    Would it be possible to get another? I would pay, it would be nice to have, though.

    Thanks

    Apple puts their ports on the bottom of their phones, no reason to switch to landscape to dock.

    Bb4.7, 5, 7, and all versions of pbos could switch to landscape. I left out bb6 since I never tried it for myself.

    No, I don't want to ask for another. It was a nice gesture for him to give me one for free.

    If this is the reason, it's just another example of why BlackBerry is failing. It says that the hardware guys didn't know what the programming guys (OS) were doing and vice versa! Wonder how many they made before they found out that the software wasn't designed for it. Maybe these docks are hidden in a write down somewhere in the financials?!
    And what about the Z30, surely it could have been fixed for it.

    Agreed. Total inter-company mix up regarding this product.

    Just tested the Galaxy S3 - it can't. Though I don't believe there is need for this on these devices since their ports are at the bottom.

    Though I'm surprised that it is such a mission to sort out the landscape thing. It doesn't seem that complex...

    I agree. Even playbook OS 1.0 had a home screen that rotated.
