The Palm Z22 – like most other recent Palm handhelds – shipped without a cradle. Brando, my favourite aftermarket cradle(Tungsten T5 cradle modified for E2 use) manufacturer attempted themselves at the impossible task of creating a cradle for a handheld with the sync port at the top…and they did a good job.

As always, Brandos products ship in yellow envelopes from Hong Kong. Austrian customs left them along so far:

The cradle itself is contained in a transparent foil:

When you look at the cradle, you immediately see the unusual configuration of the Brando Palm Z22 thingy. The long cable connects to the PC, while the short cable connects the apparature to the docked Palm Z22:

Brando couldn’t resist the temptation to include a blue LED; however, there is no hotsync button:

Getting the rather short mini usb cable attached to the Palm Z22 takes a bit of skill at first – however, once connected, the Palm Z22 sits well. Charging a powered on Palm Z22 is no problem btw:

Overall, Brando tackled the impossible and got it working. Their cradle looks cool and works well – if you like cradles, it’s a must have! The price of 20$ is ok…
