Samsung Galaxy Note II dock adds HDMI-out, 3 USB ports for $100
So, you've ordered your Samsung Galaxy Note II already and you're wondering how to make the most of it? Then here is an accessory that you might want to check out. The official Galaxy Note II dock has already landed on Samsung's U.S. web page and adds a few goodies, such as a full-sized HDMI output with 1080p video support, 3.5-millimeter audio output, and three standard USB ports for hooking up peripherals to the device. Basically, hook this baby up to an HDTV, grab a keyboard and a mouse and you'll end up transforming your Galaxy Note II into a mini multimedia computer.

However, don't reach for your wallets yet as the accessory is not in stock, at least not for now. It is expected to become available through Samsung's internet store within 2 weeks, but that's not so bad after all, especially considering that some U.S. subscribers won't get their Samsung Galaxy Note II smartphones before late November. Getting one of these will set you back $100.

Wait, then what will people do with their PCs?

This is exactly I think how Android will displace Windows from PC.

Well done SS.

android isnt even close to displacing windows or pc's

its not capable to do so, dont get why you insist android is for everything and theres no need for anything else going over the top

Not when they have to do heavy jobs, especially at work.

But at home most people just do typing, accounting, web surfing, watching videos and they don't need an expensive PC for that.

PC and software are not expensive? I think most people will be happy with the saving when they don't have to buy a PC.

Most people have PC at work and don't need a laptop unless they are on the road a lot.

If you have laptop then of course you don't need this thing.

meocao Personally i believe your correct. Although android wont out perform a computer on every scale it will over all replace the general use. And now with Microsoft going more mobile im sure we will see a large change in android over the years.

As it stands, the last year android has had vast improvement on the x86 processor development.
and now with sony (rumoring) using amd components in the new PS4 (confirmed now!) Im sure the linux development for x64 processors will improve on android as well.

This being said. There are already ways to run such programs as Photoshop and many other resource demanding software on Ubuntu (linux). and Ubuntu can be installed on many mobile devices, So yes i believe android will very soon be taking control of this market too...

Now will this be Google's choice. Chances are not!
as there goal has never been that.
However View sonic is already installing android on many of there touch screen monitors with usb and other audio outputs. REMOVING THE NEED FOR THE TOWER!

and just to clear the air. ANDROID IS DEVELOPED ON A LINUX KERNEL! so it is possible that the modders them self will improve android enough to do what we truely want.

I'd expected this right around $49.95 or less.

I wouldn't, for the OG Galaxy Note, a dock, the HDMI plug, and the USB plug run over $100... not to mention its only 1 USB port...

Sure, id like it to be less because thats what makes sense when you combine them and use less resources for more... but they make more money this way

Too expensive. Also Samsung US website have 50% off on all acesscory with CODE: rE155266e who ever wants this one or others. But most are backorders.

I'm guessing this uses usb audio to send audio to the headphone jack in the dock?

I will definitely be ordering this, now this one pops the flap open like the charging dock which is listed for 49.99 right? Cause the charging dock that runs for $50 comes with a full size stock 3100mah battery. So you can dock your device if need be and always have a spare battery charged up for whenever you need it then just pop it in and go. Versus having to pull the battery out and charge it in the phone etc.

If the one pictured above does do that then that would be bad as. Regardless it is still a great accessory that I'll be picking up once available.

This is a great smart dock that is more widely available at a cheaper price now. Check out walmart and amazon. And it works with the note 3! Check out demo here:
