pocketgpsworld.comThe latest product from Dutch company Carcomm's design labs is a cradle for HTC's uber popular Hero Android smartphone.

The HTC Hero is infamous for it's protruding 'chin' design which presents problems for designers. The chin makes it awkward to design a cradle that will line up with the bottom positioned USB port but Carcomm have overcome this problem with their Hero cradle.

Carcomm HTC Hero CMPC-139As with all Carcomm's other cradles, the Her model, Product #CMPC-139 provides fro 12/24v power and has all the charge and voltage reduction circuitry contained within the cradle itself.

Carcomm's kit generously includes a windscreen suction mount and self adhesive disk plus a swivel mount and screws should you wish to attach to the dash.

Price is as yet unknown but retailer TotalPDA is the authorised UK stockist.

If you prefer an OEM look for your cradles with a high quality design then you can't go wrong with Carcomm's products.

Looks neat, I think I may be investing in one, depending on price obviously.

I've been using it a while now and it works perfectly. It may seem expensive but the construction is more akin to an OEM phone kit with a very nice moulded cradle that looks much nicer than cheaper solutions AND dropping the phone in to charge is simple and easy.

Nice.. but not 52 nice. I will be giving it a miss. Only got 4 month left of my T-mobile contract anyway, so I will be looking for a change of phone. I have a Tesco universal clamp/charger @ 4 which suits my needs, although I have to put the cable into the phone.
