Lapdock for sale
PM me if anyone is interested. Moded for use with the photon. I just haven't been using it and could use the cash.

I know that our phones aren't power houses but how does web browsing with music a full desktop mail client running work out? (if you can try it). I ordered my lapdock last Friday from 1saleaday for $60 and I've decided that I might as well make do this the right way!

Question. Has anyone tried using the Lapdock with the ICS Port? Does it work fine and such?

I finally got an Atrix lapdock from the most recent 1saleaday promotion ... went through (the very good) instructions for modding for the Photon -- and now when I plug in the phone, the phone switches to "kickstand mode". When I open the Lapdock ... nothing happens. Suggestions? Tried with one rooted Photon (mine) and one stock (wife's).

When you plug it in try to make sure the hdmi connects before the usb.

Has anyone found the cables cheaper than all4cellular??
I'm contemplating just taking a 4 dollar micro hdmi male cable from monoprice and the female connector from mouser electronics for 2bucks and soldering my own together..
I just cant see WHY that one cable is 20 bucks. or both for 30

I don't see the need for cables. Works fine without.
