NOOKone Alarm Clock Dock Doesn’t Dock NOOKs, Only iPhones

Getting the perfect iPhone dock for your bedside table isn’t an easy task, and as industrial designer Robert Bye points out, the existing docks have a lot of problems. According to this designer, most docks only have a single possible orientation. He aims to fix this with his new NOOKone dock.

The NOOKone dock is an alarm clock dock, coupled with a dedicated app that can be used in portrait or landscape mode. The whole dock looks quite sturdy as well. There is a volume knob and the dock can charge up your iPhone as well.  The dock holds firmly onto your iPhone, and is designed to be handled and work as a stand while it’s docked.

The other thing that the dock does well is to allow you to answer your calls easily. There is a speaker hiding behind the dock, which will let you listen to tunes or take calls while docked.

For now, the NOOKone is just a concept, but it looks pretty ripe for going through a round of Kickstarter crowd-funding if Robert chooses to put it into production. He also should consider renaming it, unless he wants to hear from Barnes and Noble’s legal team.
