I'm not sure what you mean about there being no charging port on the side. I just looked @ the 360 view and its clearly there... MiniUSB. Just like almost every bberry in existence.
I hope there is a charging port on the bottom though. Ive been waiting to get a dock for this bberry, i held off with my curve.
