For $199 (or $299), you certainly can’t get as much as you do for $399. That’s probably what motivated Apple’s decision not to include a dock with purchase of an iPhone 3G.
When looking at what’s in the iPhone 3G box, you can see “Dock Connector to USB Cable”. It almost sound like a dock is included… but no! What’s included is the connector; this little plsatic thing that you can switch on your dock to fit whatever device you want (old iPod, new iPod, old iPhone, etc…).
I never used my dock anyways so I’m not really bummed out but I’m sure some of you will be.
