    Since the bionic already has the capability of being used in a lapdock, is it possible to connect the phone to an external touchscreen via usb/hdmi and have it switch into the same lapdock type mode but have the phone controlled by the screen rather than a touch pad and keyboard?

    Anybody? Lapdock idea but with a touchscreen shell instead of a laptop shell? Should just be software to change right?

    I think you can do it as long as your touchscreen has HDMI input, as using the combination of the HDMI and USB plug gives you the option to run Webtop software.

    Of course, drivers might become an issue on proprietary touchscreen devices....

    Would make for a good experiment, though....

    Anyone with a touchscreen with HDMI inputs wanna let me borrow one for a week or so?

    How about an external touch pad mouse?
