Dockey_4For under $20, the little DOCKEY reviewed over at The Gadgeteer looks like it might be on my Christmas list. The device is under two-inches long and weighs less than an ounce, making it a perfect trinket for the gadget bag. So what does the little wonder do? One thing and one thing only: it allows you to connect mini-USB devices to devices with a USB port. It’s not necessarily a glamorous function, but in some cases, it’s a necessary one.The draw of the DOCKEY is the way it’s essentially “cableless”. You simply pull the device out from its holder and swivel or twist it as needed to connect two devices. Simple, light and useful! Could be handy for a UMPC and with the HTC devices that typically use mini-USB…

  1. I have at least half a dozen cables (from various device purchases) that, while somewhat bigger, do the same thing. Quite honestly, I don’t think this thing is worth $20. Then again, according to their website they are targeting “mobile executives” and not cheap nerds :)

  2. Along similar lines, something I would like to see is adapters that have a miniUSB socket on one end and a connector for any given device (think Gomadic or iGo) on the other. Just think how much space that would save in gadget bags!
