    Still too much. I'll pass unless it's on eBay for cheaper.

    I hope that it being marked at $300 means that amazon (or someone else) will offer it for $150 or $100 after a month or so...

    I hope so too but I doubt even Amazon would mark something down that's this big anytime soon. $250 is the most I would ever pay for the lapdock. $300 is still too much. $199 would be perfect so I'll be scooping out eBay. I also wonder if the Bionic is compatible with the Atrix version....

    Yep. In a month or so we will likely see the Bionic and Dock for $300.

    If they were bundled together for that much, who wouldn't buy it??? I would take them both bundled for $400 but no more.

    What exactly does the lapdock come with, besides a small (for laptop standards anyways) 11.6" screen? What kind of connectivity will it give me? USB? Ethernet? Does it come with a keyboard and touchpad like all other laptops have, or will I need to buy a keyboard and mouse for it too?

    If I'm basically spending $300 on just midget laptop screen, I'm thinking it's not much bang for my buck.

    Why does everything lately to do with smartphones feel like such a huge ripoff to me? Am I the only one the feels that way? :)

    From Droid Life:

    I can make out the keyboard and track pad.
    I'm assuming it uses the Wi Fi from your phone but I haven't a clue about USB, Ethernet, etc.

    EDIT: If I remember correctly, external USB support comes out with ICS.

    I dunno, paying the same price for the lapdock as the phone seems ridiculous. Put the 2 together you can get a decent laptop.. what they should have done, is made a laptop thats Bionic compatible... I dunno ... mixed feelings..

    I'm not sure if it was ever confirmed, but supposedly similar devices on AT&T use the phones Wifi or if you pay for tethering you can use the phones Data connection (which I think is total BS).

    Yeah.... they are out of their F'ing minds. Sorry but I just bought a 13.3 inch laptop with a 10 hour battery life that is more powerfull and does A LOT MORE than this ripoff. LOL not a chance in hell i'm gonna buy this.

    Yeah with the Atrix I think you have to pay for tethering or use wifi. That would definitely be a no in that case, unless someone could find a way to free tether with it.


    Actually what would be better is if somehow I could (maybe with the webtop adaptor) dual boot my normal laptop. Basically boot windows7 or my droid bionic. That would be a cool mod. If only my laptop screen had HDMI in.
