View Full Version : charging and media dock

similar to the notepad dock someone was mentioning... a charging/media dock would be great too. something you could have on your entertainment unit so you could easily connect your adam to your TV and/or stereo for vid, pic, audio playback.

I am almost certain we will see a dock for the Adam. :)

One of the recent blog posts mentioned that the packaging that Adam comes in will be able to be used as a stand. All you need then is a USB cable to connect Adam to whatever you want and you have a dock.

Well, I am hoping for an add on accessory dock. Like mentioned above a media/charging station in two flavors as listed below. Maybe it would be a computer within itself.
Minimum 1 HDMI input, preferably a hub style with 3-4 inputs.
1 HDMI output
USB hub to connect both ADAM and other peripherals
1 Ethernet port
Charger for Adam
Allows to pass through Adam features and charge
Also allows to be plugged into Multimedia station
Thinking is both business & family, if Adam platform is adopted, can drop the unit into dock station and what TV or overhead. If multiple units could be link together through a wireless KVM, it would allow an easy ability to sync the units, but also share data for a presentation. Integrate the email app into the TV display, so if a message comes in you can pop in and read during a commercial.
Adam could take fight over the remote to a whole new level. The KVM would allow you to move between systems easily.
And it is just a thought, but would give Google TV a run for their money also.

I'm not sure we will see a charging or media dock upon initial launch. Possibly after a few months we might see one.

I was surprised Adam doesn't come with a dock port. One of the few features I liked on the Folio 100 was the docking stand, though it was tricky to dock properly sometimes, and the software jumped to the home screen when you docked interrupting whatever you were doing, which just sucked.
