Phone makers could just insist on putting their USB / HDMI inputs on the bottom and we could all enjoy standardized docks
Nokia's first party accessory page is here. I bought the Purity earbuds on Amazon
Nokia Lumia 900 Accessories - Nokia - USA
I just buy bluetooth speakers and play music via bluetooth rather than docking my phone

i have the purity IEM's as well, they're pretty nice and i absolutely love the flat cables that have yet to tangle. i got mine from expansys, you can also find them on amazon.uk
and yes, it's not about the proprietary connector, it's about the location of the port. since nokia put it at the top for some reason there's no good way to design a dock for it. also, since wp doesn't rotate into landscape, a horizontal dock would just look weird, even though htc made them for the titan and radar.
plenty of android OEM's make docks for their phones with ports on the bottom, it's nothing apple has patented, and if they were allowed a patent for something as simple as the location of a charging/sync port, the patent system would officially be 9000% useless.
i think there are some generic cradles you can find if you just want to hold the phone upright though.

This is what I'm going to miss most about migrating away from my 2yr old Galaxy I. A simple $15 dock. Even though it's connector was on top, it docked on it's side - charged while there and doubled as an alarm clock while being easily accessible.
I'm not necessarily interested in the "stereo" aspect of it - just the convenience of replacing my alarm clock bedside.
Honestly, I could probably deal with the fact that the screen didn't rotate. If they'd make a dock for it, I'd go all 'developer' on it. I guess the PITA would be that since there aren't any real "sensors" to tell it's docked, you'd have to manually start the dock/clock app every time.

i think the gen2 htc phones automatically go into their dock app when docked.
you can still dock it into a generic dock, it'll just be upside down, which could be a good thing to make sure you don't snooze the alarm too easily. ;)
