charging Rio Carbon on Verizon XV6700 dock

My new Verizon XV6700 camera phone has one nice feature: all of its wired connectivity is done through its USB port. On the bottom of the device is its mini-B USB port. Other than a headphone jack, there is no other wired port. The XV6700 even charges through the USB port, which means that I could charge it using an USB wall charger or through a USB cable connected to my computer. The latter is the most convenient because my computer is always on. And the slick docking station that came with the XV6700 is always connected via the USB cable.

I noticed today that the USB connector on the dock sticks up quite a bit. It's possible to plug my Rio Carbon MP3 player on top of it. The Rio Carbon also charges via the USB port. It worked, except the USB port on the Rio Carbon is reversed relative to the XV6700. So its silver backing faces the user and its LCD couldn't be seen (see photo below). But it charged just fine and the computer could even access the Rio Carbon's mass storage drive.
