    I ordered my Bionic last night. CANT FREAKING WAIT! And I just went to the VZW store today. (Long story why I couldn't just buy the phone there.) And I was looking at the laptop dock, and it looks pretty sweet. However I was thinking about just selling my laptop since all I use it for these days is web browsing anyway. Anybody here already have the dock or have messed with it more than I have to know if its pretty fast or if its not worth it?

    Also I cant find the laptop dock online ANYWHERE. Any idea why? I was hoping to find it on ebay or something for a bit cheaper.

    It will prob be a matter of time, but since it is fairly new it is not surprising it is not on E-Bay

    I purchased it and returned it. It had phenomenal build quality, but $300 for just a browser is a bit much. Very little room for customization right now. Maybe if it mirrored the phone in landscape or if you could add Widgets, but I purchased a net book and tether now. Additionally, the HD dock accomplishes the same interface to an external monitor at a third of the cost.

    It does mirror the phone display onto the screen. You can then manually change the orientation of the display and even make it full screen.

    I have the $30 webtop adapter app and that's how it works.

    Does the HD dock use HDMI? Does it come with an adapter to DVI or anything? Also how would you hook up a keyboard?
     
  6. It has three USB ports. You can attache a keyboard and mouse with USB cables.

    It has no provision for attaching to a real PC.

    HD Dock uses Micro HDMI.

    You can buy and HDMI to DVI adapter.

    Use this Cable to connect to the dock:
    6inch 34AWG High Speed w/ Ethernet Micro-HDMI Male (Type D) to HDMI Female (Type A) Adapter Cable - Black - Monoprice.com

    Use this adapter plugged into that cable:
    HDMI Male to DVI-D Single Link Female Adapter - Monoprice.com

    Then use your own DVI cable or if you need one get one from here:
    Video Cables - DVI - Monoprice.com


    As for a keyboard and mouse, you can use a Bluetooth or USB keyboard, and a Bluetooth or USB mouse. The dock has 3 standard sized USB ports.

    Thanks guys! I will probably go with the HD Dock to see how it works. But I think once the price comes down a bit on the laptop dock I might wanna go out and get that as well.


    As for the thing not being around anywhere... I realize its new and all so I understand that it's not on ebay but shouldn't it be on Motorola's site? Or was it manufactured by someone else?

    Ok so I just looked at Motorola's site again today and they do have the Lapdock on there now. You just can't order it from them yet.

    People are aware that the lapdock price is an issue. The parts are generally good quality - is driving up price.

    I have the lapdock and it is awesome. The browser is fast in wifi and 4G. Not too bad in 3G. I definitely think the $300 was worth. Everyone may not agree but I am glad I got it. Without the docks the Bionic is just another Android phone. With the docks the phone is truly a Bionic. If you can spare the $300 get the lapdock.
