    Thanks for the heads-up. I thought I looked at every clock out there. Maybe it didn't come up in my original search because its in the UK store. But I found it and am trying it. Not real fond of the clock faces but it does seem to work and that's the main thing.

    Anyway, thanks again.

    Or if you're handy, or if you have a handy girlfriend/wife/mother, you could have a nice charger-pillow made however you like to suit your deco, no need to pay 10 bucks for a "Nokia textile bag"...

    I have both, and I think I like the plate better (which is cheaper). Just seems more practical/useful.

    I just bought the charging stand today. There was also an update to the Nokia Accessories today. So I'm not sure if the "Weather & Calendar" option is new or not. I've seen unboxing videos and the charging stand set up didn't have this option before. Anyway, I really like the stand. I wish it was about half the price, but other than that no complaints.

    About Weather & Calendar. I have this option in the accessories setup (along with all of the other apps on the phone to launch via NFC tap). It shows a huge clock and a weather icon with temp. Once enabled, the screen stays on and unlocked. It is a screen saver and moves around every 30 seconds or so. One really nice feature of this accessory app is that when it is running, you can swipe up or down to adjust the brightness...nice touch!

    If you already had the stand and were looking for a clock app, see if the update gave you another option for Weather & Calendar.

    This was just discovered in the Accessories Update? thread in 920 forum too. Awesome new feature after the update but it heats up the phone a lot to the point that my phone restarted twice. (not entirely sure if that's the cause but yeah my phone shuts off and start again 2 times already, so I stopped the screensaver for now..)

    I bought a red plate the other day (which hasn't arrived yet) and just went out and scored a stand for $29 from my Telstra store. I'll give my thoughts on which is better once the plate arrives.

    So far I've got one problem with the stand. I want it to launch the alarm app through nfc but it isn't listed in the list of apps in the settings page. Kind of annoying. Other than that it seems pretty nice.
