What better way to make a Nexus One dock than ro recycle?
After selling my iPhone, I still had the box. It seemed silly to bin the box so I used to help make a dock for my Nexus One!
The two boxes
Cut a hole for the power cable
Stick it down!
Cable attached - notice the angle of the nexus box- excellent!
Hack away at the iPhone box...
Stick the nexus card to the inner iPhone sleeve
Shoved it into the outer iPhone sleeve
Pop the Nexus One into the DOCK!
Beautiful, just... beautiful. Sorry for the smudge marks..
I love it..!
So there you have it…
…if you have a spare iPhone case laying around now you know what to do with it. 🙂
Hope you love my craft skillz. as you can see; it’s probably better that I stick to my Affiliate Marketing & Programming – but I still refuse to pay shipping TWICE to have TWO Google Nexus Docks shipped to the UK !!
So, 26th January I ordered my Nexus One from Google.com and had to pay the $29 dollars for shipping to the UK.. quite reasonable price to be honest!
However, on 27th January Google Announced the Desktop Dock was now available – this was rather frustrating as I had already placed my order – so if I want one I will have to pay the $29 shipping fee again. However, I want 2! You can’t buy 2 though….If I want to purchase 2 then I have to place 2 seperate orders, meaning I will have to pay shipping to the UK twice, again – I’ve already paid once!
So, I figured I would make my own. This one cost 50 pence – (around 1 dollar to you US folks!)
Wow, it looks like a big polo..

There you have it!
This is perfect; I can create as many as I want. If you wanted to get creative you could colour yours in paint; or maybe cover it with papier mache?
$1 per dock – admitedly it doesn’t have Bluetooth like the Google one; but it’s a lot cheaper!
I almost forgot… A photo with the headphone Jack in:
Sorry about the quality of the photos… my digital camera is rubbish – it’s okay though as I now have a great camera in the Nexus One 🙂
Hope you like it.
p.s. Yes, I know it shit; but that’s what do you expect from a bit of shit roll? =))
