The one other thing to remember is that you have a much larger virtual keyboard to type on when the phone is in landscape mode.
It's too bad the Motorola Atrix is the only Android phone with a laptop dock. I do see there are mini bluetooth keyboards that are supposed to be Android compatible, but I've never heard of anyone actually using one, yet.
I have a mini bluetooth keyboard for the PS3...I wonder if it would pair up with the optimus? Hmmm...you got me thinking now! LOL
