Pogo pins are really handy when you want to put your device into a dock. Android devices like the Galaxy Nexus or the Nexus 7 have these. If you use docks which need the Micro Usb port for charging you have to press the device into the plug inside the dock. This is not that easy as just let it slide into the dock when having pogo pins. Furthermore you don’t have to worry about wearing out the Micro Usb port. It’s a pitty that not all devices nowadays have this kind of connection.
