I'm inclined to believe that they are made/endorsed by Samsung; I have found them now on other sites also labeled as such.

I have not seen anything really from Samsung pushing the SGP's stateside. These items may have been available in other countries, B&H is an American company, perhaps we didnt see them here because of the lack of marketing. Maybe, hopefully, this is an indication that they intend to do more in the future. <fingers crossed>

Purchased this dock yesterday at ebay as price was reduced again, on your recommendation. Are you using the Samsung charger and cord for it?

Another nifty item some may want when watching video or reading.

You may want to check into a Coylcushion. the #2 one would probably work with it, I believe she made this size for a gps. I have one for my HP Touchpad, Nook, and Kindle. Love them. She has several sizes. I have the #3 and #4. The #3 would work for the Galaxy, Kindle, Fire, and most items, a bit large for a phone. I prefer the #4 for the HP Tablet. Phone size may be a bit small for the Galaxy. Here's a direct link:

Right now I have it hooked up to my computer; using a regular micro USB cable along with a USB extension cord to help it reach. I use the Sammy charger in another room, also with a USB extension cord.

The dock will come with a cord; I belive it is a data cord. There was a sticker on the dock covering the USB port which said something to the effect that it would not work for charging; not sure why though as mine charges fine on the dock.

I hope that answers your question

Have a Magical Day

If you look at the last review on the link, someone tried to use it with a non-ipod/iphone and it did not work. Some report that it does not work with all Ipods. Someone there found it at Walmart - if you plan to try this, buy it there as you can return it easily, as most likely it will not work with the SGP.

Bought a SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE NEOPRENE POUCH for a Galaxy Player 5.0.
It fits good as the Note is a bit bigger thant the 5.0.
It's a soft case and the lining seems to clean the screen when you remove from the pouch and at 7.99 it good value.

The one mentioned earlier in this thread that B&H is taking preorders for. If it is the Samsung case as others have said, it has a stand. I have it in white, Zenus Brand, and it has the stand, but price was $42 shipped.

http://www.exportprive.com/en/samsun...50-blanc-.html

Guess it's sold out now, Black and White both have "Contact us". I love my white one, but most would prefer the Black that B&H is selling, and price is cheaper than what I paid. Real leather, thin case, folds back nicely.

The Zenus looks really good. I would get one when they're in stock but my Riot Outfitters folio is holding up well. Does the white leather show dirt and greasy fingerprints? I'm really bad about that. lol I have to constantly clean my screen.

I haven't noticed any fingerprints on case, but I use applecare leather lotion on my leather products anyway. It does have a Shiny/Matt diagonal texture to it, so it isn't a smooth leather. I do keep a microfiber cloth handy for the screen as I also use them for my glasses. Love the White when I go out and am showing off!

For everyday at home use, I use the gel back, and the Amazon basic slipcase which does fit perfect. When going out I use the Zenus white leather to impress others.

Actually, the size is so great for a tablet that it is totally conducive to take out of the house. I used it on 2 long bus trips already. Have both Kindle and Nook apps on it, with a few books for each. Perfect size, and great for reading. And then, there's always the Games!

The white one does have a wow factor to it. It's good to see that there are more accessories coming out for the SGP. There were so few choices a couple of months ago.

About the same price as the Zenus. Looks like lots have purchased it, but only generic comments about vendor in feedback.

Appears the SGP5 is held in case with sticky tabs? Hence, I prefer the Zenus as I can use outside case with a silicone back at home. Also, Zenus has a small tab for a stand, where these are made like the ones for larger tablets using a folding case.

Depends what you think you would prefer. It's your hard earned money so you would want to be happy with it.

I won't purchase anymore until I'm sure it is what I want, as I've learn't my lesson with the Kindle and Nook. I have several covers for sale as I got them and didn't like them once they arrived.
