    Lapdock?

    Have heard rumors of a lapdock for the bionic. Curious to see if that comes to fruition. Currently using a Droid X running Liberty GB rom, overclocked ULV and the phone runs fast, smooth and gets a day and a half on a charge. No need to upgrade really, unless I could dock the phone and run linux on a thin lapdock. I wish ATT didn't blow balls, otherwise I'd have an Atrix right now...

    Funny, all the polls I've seen online on what would be a determining factor for purchasing the "next phone" and the lapdock is never mentioned. I understand that its pretty locked down out of the box and was expensive at launch, but I hear its a pretty damn convenient accessory if you root and rom the Atrix.

    Sadly, I have a feeling its not in the cards for the Bionic.

    If Android has any weaknesses compared to the Iphone, its definitely fragmentation, too many damn phones, were seeing this now with Gingerbread having issues with so many different devices. Same thing is most likely going to keep the lapdock from getting a Bionic port.

    Meh. Can't win em all, Droid X will do the trick for a while longer, unless I'm wrong.

    It will have it. Moto said all high end phones will have it from June onward. Read engadget, they have alot of info on android phones.

    We've seen pictures of the Bionic in the lapdock, not that I find it important, but it will be available for use.

    The Bionic will have the lapdock as was stated above. I personally think the lapdock would be cool - I just can't justify paying a huge amount for it. I definitely don't understand all the hate out there for it - I find it very strange to "hate" an extra added feature that you don't have to use if you don't want and that has no effect on the phone if you don't use it.

    Thanks for the link. This is encouraging news. The lapdock didn't sell too well for the Atrix, and the prices have fallen pretty low at this time.

    ****. Now I'm gonna have to get a Bionic...

    Reports are that the lapdock capabilities for the Bionic have been upgraded over what's available for the Atrix. If that turns out to be true it will be a much better overall experience but likely still pretty expensive.

    I think I might actually get the lapdock. Not retail but through eBay or something. I used one at Bestbuy with the Atrix and it was pretty cool. Just wasn't worth the asking price.

    I will most likely be getting the lapdock. I use my computer at school and would much rather take the lapdock with me instead of my $1200 laptop. Would be a great convenience and can leave my laptop at home for my girl to use too. Hope it's reasonably priced and functions properly.

    I would consider a lap doc if I didn't have to pay for more data. ATT&T requires a tethering data plan for theirs. I'd expect Verizon to do the same, even if you have unlimited data on your phone.

    To me the laptop dock has always been a gimmick!!! I will not purchase it!!! All I need is the Bionic and my HD tv...
