Got one. Just under 55 bucks after taxes at Verizon store, on Alma School, Mesa AZ. Store was out, but found one for me a couple of hours later. Thanks guys, and the sexy gal who helped me. Firefox lags a bit, wish I had Chrome. Constant memory warnings are a pain. Working on losing some aps for more memory. Still learning, and I'm quite sure the updates will help. Nice unit for 50ish bucks though, so I ain't returning it.
The keyboard is definately driving me insane, especially the space bar. You have to slam it down with your thumb to get it to register. Also, the FF browser hangs way too much for me to consider it useable. I think if I could disable theflash plug in,or have it load 'on demand' when I need it, that could help a lot. But, I haven't figured out a way to make this happen yet. Any suggestions?
Also, the differences between how the trackpad interacts in the mobile view and ff are pretty annoying. I find myself double-tapping to scroll in ff, but it just highlights a bunch of text.
I've been reading through some posts on Ubuntop and I'm pretty intrigued. Anyone else out there give that a go yet? I haven't seen anyone who has set it up on the Bionic, and I certainly don't want to be the first.

I think the lapdock is a great addition. I can't figure out why folks are complaining about using Firefox. Why not just use the browser on the phone? I find it much faster and no low memory pop-ups.
Got mine last night. LOVE it!
My only gripe is the trackpad. I really wish it had two-finger scrolling.
Other than that, its great.
Can't wait for Webtop 3.0!!!
thanks to this forumn i was able to obtain one from a local Verizon store. just started messing with it, looking forward to learning all it's capable of. for $50 you cant go wrong.
For those having a challenge with the space bar - my experience is not that you have to hit it HARD, it's that you have to hit it in the MIDDLE of the bar.

Thank you OP for starting this thread! I just picked one up last night and I told a buddy of mine about it and he got one too. I drove to my local store and the sales rep said they just had the lapdock 100 for $199 and never heard of the sale. I showed him a picture that one of the members here took of what the box looked like and he said their box was different and said he never saw a lapdock box with the Bionic logo on it. So I drove home and just for humor I called the same store to see if I could get a different answer from someone else and sure enough the guy on the phone said they do have them for $50 so I drove back and bought it. When I picked it up I told him another sales rep said they didn't have a Bionic lapdock and they weren't on sale and he said that one he sold me was hidden in the back so that other sales rep may have been trying to save it for himself. So the moral of the story is call multiple stores multiple times until you get the answer you're looking for.
I had a chance to mess with a bit last night and overall I think it's really cool and totally worth $50 but it is a little on the weak side and a little quirky.
- I noticed in Firefox when I watch youtube videos in full screen it can get a little choppy here and there regardless if the quality is set to 1080p or 240p.
- While watching Youtube my phone got really hot and my BattMonX app gave a warning that my CPU was at 49 degrees (if I remember right). After I closed Firefox I tested some games and the temperature dropped considerably.
- I tested Angry Birds, Tiny Bee and Eve of the Genesis and noticed that any time I held the mouse button down the games would slow down and get a choppy framerate. I tested this with and without a mouse and got the same result.
- Another quirky problem I had was when I docked my phone for the second time I got a black screen with a message that said, "No HDMI source detected" and then it would display my lockout screen for about 10 seconds and during this time the mouse would not work and then it would switch back to the black screen with the same message. I re-seated the Bionic a few times and still got the same issue. I had to reboot my phone and re-seat it to get it to work again. Hopefully that will not be an ongoing issue.
Those are the issues that I can think of at the moment I'll add more if I can remember or if I run across anymore. Other than that it is a really neat device and I'm dying to test it out some more.
I do have some questions about functionality that I haven't figured out:
Does anyone know how to perform multi touch inputs such as pinch zooming?
Does anyone know how to scroll down web pages using the track pad without manually clicking on the elevator buttons?
