Multimedia dock for Atrix
I bought the dock with remote for the Atrix (came with the IR remote).
I concur with the issue regarding aligning the unit to the usb and hdmi ports on the phone -- I spend a few seconds each time trying to get everything lined up (and hope I'm not scratching the phone in the process).
Other than that, the dock is very nice. I prefer using wired keyboards and USB mice rather than bluetooth -- it keeps the BT free for audio (listening to music).
I have my dock set up at work and connected to a KVM switch to connect my phone to the keyboard/mouse I use for the two computers at my desk. I don't switch video with the KVM switch, and I leave the phone in the "do nothing" mode most of the time so I can use the phone without the monitor.
The keyboard works great and I can use it to compose emails and SMS messages while it's on the dock.
My biggest disappointment is the operation of the mouse when it's on the dock and not in Webtop mode. The phone does not create a mouse cursor in the "do nothing" mode to allow you to use the mouse effectively, so you have to reach over and touch the screen to control the device. Using the mouse is pretty much useless as it jumps from icon to icon and you can't really predict where you are going when operating the mouse.
In webtop mode, you get a cursor, and operating the mouse is as you would exepect -- you can control the phone display mode with the cursor and it's as intuitive as using your finger. This is what should have been available when you're not in Webtop mode with a mouse.
If you hook up the monitor without a keyboard and mouse, the phone display turns into a laptop touchpad control. A keyboard icon is also available to switch to keyboard input as well. An external mouse and keyboard are highly recommended, however.
In short, the dock is awesome, and I plan on getting two more (without remotes); one for my desk at home and work (this one will be put on my home entertainment system so I can use the remote to control the device for music and videos.)
I also am interested in what Motorola may be offering in terms of the "ruggedized case" mentioned in the manual for the dock. If you have an Otterbox or other protective case for your phone, you will likely will have to remove the device from the case in order to dock the unit.
The manual for the dock mentioned another insert you can place on the dock to accomodate the ruggedized case, but I can't find anything on Motorola's website for ordering either the insert or the case.
