Pitched as an inexpensive dock solution for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 users -- presumably the iPhone 4S, as well -- Cavodock's Cable Dock ($15) requires you to supply your own USB to Dock Connector cable, wind it around the hard plastic base, and poke its tips out of the top and back; you then cover it with an included, colorful rubber bottom and insert your device into Cable Dock's top. While the accessory seemingly has room for encased iPhones, Cavodock notes that it "fits the iPhone 4 with some protective cases and iPhone 3GS without case;" the Dock Connector tip notably does not stick up enough inside the enclosure to make a proper connection with some of our favorite iPhone 4/4S cases. Cable Dock is offered in multiple colors, with glossy hard plastic tops that match the black and white iPhone models.

Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
