Sick of seeing your poor Nexus One lie almost lifeless on your desk or constantly having to wake the phone to check the time? Well, now you can prop it up and display the sleek Android phone in all its glory with the new Nexus One Desktop Dock. Similar to the accessory for the Motorola Droid, when the smartphone is docked, it will display the time, any alarm clock settings, and weather. In addition, you can view slideshows, and a 3.5mm-to-RCA audio cable is included if you want to connect the dock to your stereo and listen any music stored on your phone.
The Nexus One Desktop Dock, which will also charge your phone, is available from Google now for $45. You can buy it separately or bundled with the phone.
A new report claims Amazon and Google are bringing voice calls to the Echo and Home. We had fun pretending to make a phone call with the connected speakers.
