At&t has the original atrix lapdock for $50 ! Can the connectors be modded to allow the bionic to work on this or will it not work with the webtop os on the lapdock?

I just ordered one. If there's no way to mod it I'm sure you can unload it on craigslist or ebay.

*edit*
Found this thread over in the Razr forums, someone got the Atrix lapdock working with their Razr so I'm hoping it does work with our Bionics.

I've ordered one too.

There are a few positive reports in the photon thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...223032&page=12

I got one too. Although i'm not sure about the spacing, the main difference seems to be that the ports will be upside down for the bionic. Pop open a couple of screws (start on post 6 of the photon thread) and hopefully all we need to do is flip them around. A little trimming of the plastic around the connectors may be needed

I would like to see pix too. I ordered one yesterday. Can't wait. I assume the terminals could be just turned around and maybe some cutting to make the phone fit in the cradle.

Does the cradle need to be modded? If so, is it just at the openings for the ports? I'd be willing to do that, but not much more.
