    That's not the Apple universal dock. Looks like an iPhone 3G dock. The universal dock will come with different inserts for different iPhones/iPods. And yes, if you buy an actual Apple universal dock, it will work with the iPhone 4 (must buy an iPhone 4 dock insert for perfect fit).

    Best sticking with genuine Apple dock then I guess. Thanks for your reply.

    FYI: Found on some site (forget which), but the original iPhone dock works with iPhone 4. Not sure of the specific version, but the iPod dock works too. You get a warning that the accessory is not optimized for this iPhone, but it charges it fine.

    And I just ordered 2 iPhone 4 docks. They will be going back.

    Being a pack rat has its' benefits. :)
