I just don't care about the webtop app, I will use it as an HDMI/Keyboard/mouse just like I do with my cheapo 7" tablet on ICS.

it cannot get any better at 49$ on all4cellular

all4cellular.com/product/motorola-atrix-4g-laptop-dock-refurbished.html

Keep in mind you might have to hack the lapdock a bit to fit your AHD... or get extension cables for it.

Funny but no, I got mine on ebay and paid quite a bit more before finding that deal. So I chose to share it...

By the way, the verizon stores have the lapdock 100 New for 49$ while supplies last

I went to the verizon store in Malone NY and they didn't have the lapdock 100 but I was able to try my Atrix HD in a Bionic Lapdock.

Simply put, the lapdock is a 12 inches HDMI monitor with a USB hub speading the AHD micro USB port to 2 full sized usb ports, the keyboard and the trackpad.

So it turn your phone into a large screen netbook Under android ICS... with 4g lte connectivity.

It was just fine without the heavy webtop app. Specialy for 49$

The bionic lapdock was still at 129$

By the way, all the lapdock, exception made for the 500 model, are dumb device. Any smartphone or device with hdmi out and usb out can be connected to the motorola lapdock. ( including the mk802 android stick or the samsung galaxy series)

How's the resolution, I dont think you got the lapdocks native 1366*768, did it look blurry? And was it edge to edge?

Well I didn't have a lot of time to play with the dock in the verizon store and still waiting for mine but other people reported that various hdmi devices will do it in 720p resolution. That would leave 24 pixels on each side of the screen. You can google "lapdock hack" to see what people are doing with it.

so this is what it must look like ? click for bigger.

its a galaxy nexus with 720p screen and soft buttons.



It should do good once the dpi gets set to ~20 lower...

did the keyboard and touchpad work ?


By the way, if you set dpi to a certain value, ICS will switch to tablet mode, and it will almost be the same as webtop mode, maybe the atrix2 launcher works too, for smaller icons... if you are interested, maybe we could figure something out.

Well let me know how it turns out.

I'll be getting an Atrix HD in about a month, and I know some guys from the atrix2 forum who will help with the black borders and tablet mode. (Myself included, lol)

It would be even better if you could get some info for us while I still have mine.
