    Motorola MSRP for the lapdoc100 is $249. MSRP for the lapdoc500 is $349, and there are cables and accessories one can buy. Once again, I stand by my comments.

    I also note that Motorola is still advertising the "Full Firefox Browser" and Flash compatibility. Here's the clip as of when I'm writing this: "The full Firefox browser turns internet access on your phone into a true desktop internet experience. Use multiple browser windows, tabs and Adobe Flash to access your remote applications, search for information, and view the best the web has to offer. " Source: Lapdock 500 Pro - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA

    Obviously, this is wrong on both counts.

Also my keyboard now seems to have gone full gobblygook in webtop mode by typing numbers and characters instead of letters, it also doesnt delete properly. But that is nothing compared to loosing the ability to watch tv shows on the web (yes i reinstalled flash, 99% of sites that worked with 2.0 are still a no go on 3.0), webtop 2.0 was really the one and only reason why i bought this phone in the first place. Now its like im stuck with my old iphone in my droids body now. I need any option to get rid of ics. Factory reset? Some sort of jailbreaking? (deleted text) I dont care if i loose every piece of info or every app. I just want this tablet/iphone gone and my mini pc back, at any cost.
    Look for the thread titled Downgrade to 902 - No App or data loss

    Doing a factory data reset should clear up your problems. If you just want to go back, then the method in that thread should be able to get you there. Otherwise, you can flash it back to 902 with RSDlite and the 902 FXZ. As far as the websites, you can check out the Dolphin Browser HD or Firefox and see how they work for you.

    There's no need for name calling towards anyone, regardless of what they thought of your opinion. Take the high road.

    And that "Clearly, you didn't read all the comments" remark is unnecessary as well. There's no need to try to antagonize anyone, especially someone who understands where you're coming from with your comments, and is saying they're entirely valid. It's also unnecessary because, beyond this thread, those are the only comments you've made about Webtop on this forum that I see in your post history, and I was the only one who responded to those posts. So, those are all of the comments.

    Hardly anything sells for MSRP, and MSRP hasn't meant anything for the lapdocks in months (even at Verizon). They can be found for well below those prices. And if you buy a lapdock, there's no need to buy additional cables or accessories to make it work. The cables and accessories were there if you wanted to use Webtop without a lapdock pre-ICS. With ICS, if you want to run Webtop on something other than a lapdock, all you need is a cheap HDMI cable.

    So, while you're right on the MSRP for the lapdocks, it doesn't change the fact that they can be consistently found for much less than that (and, in fact, have always sold for less than that from Verizon, which means they've pretty much always been cheaper elsewhere).

    Either way, I'm still not sure why you're trying to start an argument here about every little detail. Your comments are valid, as are mine and anyone else's. I think the Webtop changes are worthwhile overall, even with what was lost. You disagree with that, as do several others. That's fine. Agree to disagree.

    You can buy an Atrix lapdock on Amazon for less than $70 and either use a pair of connector cables to attach your phone or do as I did and carefully flip the port connectors to align with the RAZR. Works great!

    Or at least, it did until ICS was released - there I am in full agreement with you. Webtop for Gingerbread was a LAPTOP emulator, with some very annoying limitations and issues, to be sure. Webtop for ICS is a TABLET emulator. That isn't why I bought my Lapdock. If there were a Tabletdock accessory, then I'm sure this would be great, but there isn't and for me, it really sucks. So much so that I have had to put my Lapdock aside and pull out my 6-year old Compaq laptop to compose this reply, because trying to do this on ICS Webtop is a pain in the - er - neck!

    On a DROID Bionic you can, but you're in the DROID RAZR section - completely different ballgame with the RAZR.

    I have tried to rollback with the roms I had and the backup I made. I basically bricked my phone. After a day of this/that, finally put ICS back on. My 2-cents is that don't try it unless you have a lot of time.

    If you guys install the new ics leak 215 it now brings the chrome browser that works great with webtop. It looks and feel like chrome for your regular pc. Sadly no flash but a much better browser.
