Not a bad price. But Apple docks doesnt even work for their iphone. How bout putting micro usb in your phones instead of your so called mini port? MICRO USB is a widley most useable charge port plus it charges faster.

It should be Free in EU according to law, cause here Phones should use micro USB standard charging port.

The law says they have to offer it, not that they have to give it away for free.

Why did they even make this? I thought Apple didn't care about micro USB. Wouldn't it be much easier to just use micro USB instead of a proprietary connector?

They have to offer it to be compliant with EU laws.

Sammy doesnt offer micro usb on oall thier products so why should apple my gnex doesnt charge all that much faster than a 4s and my gtab with its 30pin connector charges about the same as my gnex. The EU is not the end all be all of the law.
