Nexus One Bluetooth Desktop Dock


Our own AndroidForums was responsible for a pretty sweet Nexus One scoop today in the quickly growing Nexus One Forum. In his daily perusal of the FCC, kwaping found mention of the Nexus One Bluetooth Desktop Dock which had a bunch of interesting inclusions you wouldn’t normally expect from a typical dock.


Hmmmm… why would a dock itself need bluetooth connectivity? Maybe for… connecting it to your freaking home entertainment system?


It’s very possible that part of Google’s “shock factor” with the Nexus One isn’t with the phone itself or applications on the phone… but with how your phone can interact with other pieces of hardware with the new Bluetooth APIs now found in Android 2.0. We haven’t seen these exploited (in a good way) thus far and they are relatively new, but that doesn’t mean Google hasn’t been working on them for quite awhile now.

We’re only a couple weeks from when some of the rumors say the Nexus One will be made available. Even if its by invite only, we’ll be hearing/seeing SOMETHING pretty soon, one would think. I hope your New Years Resolution isn’t to save money by buying less gadgets cause might break that rather quickly.

Of course resolutions are made to be broken… right? Although this was initially found on AndroidForums, we’ve gotta give credit to the guys at Engadget for finding the needle in the haystack.

  1. Making a resolution to buy less gadgets is blasphemous to say the least. I’m so ready to get behind on a few bills to get the Nexus =D

  2. I definately want this phone at launch! Keep us posted with news about the invites.

  3. Woot! Finally got a mention. :)

  4. “…new Bluetooth APIs…” Where’s my PS3 remote app dammit?

  5. I wish androids could ‘talk’ to each other with bluetooth like my old palm did…The whole Bump concept is ridiculous.

  6. Isn’t it more likely that the BT is just for letting the phone talk to the dock?

    It would certainly be nice if someone would release a dock that worked for holding more than just one model of phone.

    I very much wish Google had licensed the iphone connector specs and the iphone/ipod form-factor rights, so that all matching android phones could make use of all the iphone accessories out there. It’s almost hard these days to find a home stereo that doesn’t have an Apple-specific dock on it, and yet no one but Apple uses that form factor.

    A big part of what makes Apple lead is that they recognized early the importants of a standard connector and form factor, and of licensing both of those to 3rd parties who would make accessories.

  7. The Android developers have been working on Bluetooth HID profile that can accommodate wireless keyboards, mice, etc. This might be it?

  8. -chewtoy- trust me when I say from personal experience as a small mfg of peripherals, you do NOT want to be licensing that connector from Apple. I TOTALLY understand why google didn’t and I hope they are indeed thinking of using BT to comm with the Dock, tho why they ned to if you have to plug in via usb to charge is beyond me… unless the 3 bottom contacts are for power and you HAVE to use bt for comms… hmmmmm. Anyway, BT is already universal without having to deal with Apple so here’s hoping they go with it.
