These guys sent us a couple to give away at the last meetup.  I have one of these docks and need to get it out and test it.  Great video.  Here are there products.

I saw that video too and decided to purchase one.  I tried it out today with a 1920x1080 display and it worked perfectly.  The drawback, which is Dell's fault, is that you cannot charge while connected to this dock (or when using any USB device).  Dell!  Please put a full-sized USB 3.0 port on the Venue 8 Pro.  Perhaps Dell could add WiGig docking capability.

On the topic of charging and using these docking stations, I read on another forum that this device (LINK)  will fix that problem.  The device will charge and can be used as a USB at the same time.  I have not received mine yet to confirm it.
