  1. We claim the ornamental design for a docking station, substantially as shown and described.
Description

This application is related to: U.S. Design patent application Ser. No. 29/237,233, filed concurrently and entitled “Docking Station”, which is hereby incorporated herein by reference.

Various examples of dock insert embodiments are shown and described, for example in (i) U.S. Design patent application Ser. No. 29/237,097, filed concurrently and entitled “Dock Insert”; (ii) U.S. Design patent application Ser. No. 29/237,111, filed concurrently and entitled “Dock Insert”; and (iii) U.S. Design patent application Ser. No. 29/237,112, filed concurrently and entitled “Dock Insert”, each of which is hereby incorporated herein by reference.

All of the material from the three U.S. Design patent applications that is essential to the claimed design is included herein. Any material in the three U.S. Design patent applications that is not present herein forms no part of the claimed design.

FIG. 1 is a front perspective view of a docking station embodying our new design.

FIG. 2 is a rear perspective view of the docking station.

FIG. 3 is a top view for the docking station.

FIG. 4 is an exemplary perspective view of how a docking system can incorporate the docking station with a dock insert.

FIGS. 5–8 are exemplary top views of a docking system that incorporates different dock inserts into the docking station; and,

FIG. 9 is an exemplary perspective view of the docking station integrated into a portion of an electronic device such as a portable music player (e.g. boom box).

The dock inserts of FIG. 4 and the electronic device of FIG. 9, which are illustrated in broken lines, are provided to show environmental structure only and therefore form no part of the claimed design.

The broken lines immediately adjacent the shaded areas represent the bounds of the claimed design while all other broken lines are directed to environment and are for illustrative purposes only; the broken lines form no part of the claimed design.
