For those of us either unwilling or unable to fork over US$29 for an Apple branded iPhone dock, there is now a cheap alternative. Meritline.com currently has a white charger dock for the iPhone 3G for US$5.99 with free shipping! I don’t know about you guys but for 6 bucks I’m going to buy one for the home and one for the office.

They’re shipping from Hong Kong and should arrive in about 2 weeks.
