When Samsung put out their initial video for the Unpacked event, a lot of speculation ran rampant that due to the connectors seen on the side of the device they would release a phone and a tablet at the same time, making a ‘Sandwich’ of devices. I just watched through the video again and what I missed yesterday was that it’s actually for a dock :
The connectors on the side are POGO Pin connectors – basically spring loaded contacts on the bottom of a dock. Kevin Packingham, Senior VP of Product Innovation, described this during his talk on the Galaxy Nexus Hardware:
We’ve also designed a special drop in dock with a POGO pin, that will let you quickly take advantage of all that great music and video content that you`ve captured on the device.
I haven’t seen any places offering the option to purchase the dock as yet but I’m thinking I might actually have to get one for my Galaxy Nexus when I get to ordering one.
