Nokia N97 Cradle, Stand, Charger. Any Suggestions?

by Timi Cantisano on August 13, 2009

While the N97 has a wonderful tilt screen which gives users an excellent view of the screen while on a flat surface,  some might be interested in a more traditional looking stand for the N97. While I haven’t found a particular brand of stand, I have found a couple stands that share the same basic design. A majority of the N97 desktop stands/chargers cradle the N97 in a vertical position and have room for an additional battery that can be charged in the rear. The main unit receives charge/sync via a USB cable that connects to the N97′s micro USB port.
Although this is accomplished via a hideous cable that doesn’t look to flush. While I haven’t directly purchased this myself, I’d be curious to hear from the readers of N97fanatics that have purchased a cradle/desktop stand and their opinions on how they work and what brands seem to offer the best product.  Below I have included some pictures of the different types of cradles that I have seen. Most range in price from 12 dollars to 50 dollars USD.

*I’ve also searched for cradles that would leave the N97 horizontal but would have a charging port that would dock with the unit.  I’m not to sure how practical that would be, but if anyone has seen this please don’t hesitate to link it! I”ll be looking forward to your input.

    Since I like to keep my N97 safe at all times, I have it wrapped in a silicone softcase (quite good one actually). However, this also means that there'll probably be no stand that can hold my extra thick phone. Pity.

    I would like to see a horizontal stand too, which you just put the phone into and it connects direct to the usb. I don't know why they havn't released it yet, its crazy, also i noticed on the N96(i think), the silver bit around the camera flips out to make it a little horizontal stand great for watching movies, why didnt' they do this with the N97 !

    Apparently, the stand on the N96 was not very sturdy and there may have been damages due to this. Would rather have no stand at all than damage my precious N97!
