Already using a wireless USB mouse, works perfect.
I've been listening to music through the stereo speakers while looking at pictures or videos in my Gallery. Browsing full page websites with the firefox browser. Playing games like Angry Birds on the larger screen. Copying files, music, documents, pictures, videos to and from a thumb drive connected to the dock. E-mailing is easier having the keyboard and so is document creation. The touchpad is very responsive, but I am using a compact wireless mouse for even better navigation. If you can't think of anything to do with this, you're not trying. All your phone apps will run on the lapdock. The lapdock will charge the phone and seems to have a quite large capacity, although I can't find the spec for mAh.
My local vz store would not match online price! It was heartbreaking cause i was holding lapdock in hand ready to purchase. They said to buy it online. Stupid jerk faces! Guess I'll buy it online and have to wait for it.
The authorized retailers aren't held to the same pricing as true VZW stores which I think a lot of people are finding out.
I guess that's true. I thought they were true vzw store. I have given this store in particular hundreds of dollars over the years. One would think they would cut me a break. Wishful thinking on my part I guess.
Well, Looks like vz is out of stock with the lap dock online. Guess I missed the boat on this one. Damn!
Is this compatible with the Razr Maxx?
We used the Lapdock 100 with the Bionic and Razr MAXX and they both work well with it.
Been kick,n it around a bit this morning. Couple of observations/comments:
1.) Tried using Splashtop Remote, had some challenges. I am using a wireless mouse. The cursor moved but click the mouse had not effect (also used the touch pad on the lapdock, same thing). Anyone using SplashTop Remote or any other remote desktop app successfully with the lapdock?
2.) Slingbox: Seems to struggle buffering enough data to keep up when viewing full-screen, okay when I resize the screen a bit smaller. Wireless seems to be okay speedwise.
3.) Netflix: All seems okay. Works great, even in full-screen mode
4.) Would be great to get Webtop 3.0 :icon_ lala:
5.) Anyone figure out how to get a screenshot of the webtop on lapdock? Just wanna know cuz that would be cool!
6.) Wanna test bluetooth if I can find my dang MotoRokr headset.
7.) Anyone know how to disable the touchpad mouse thingy? I prefer to use the wireless mouse... keep dragging my hands over it when using the keyboards and it does bad stuff.
8.) Very well worth the $50 dollars. Gives me something to do while waiting for ICS dancedroid
9.) Curious to hear what other cool things folks are doing.
Yea I'm having problems clicking boxes also but it eventually works.
To disable the touchpad, double tap with your finger the touchpad light.
I'd call around to some of the Verizon stores in your area, that is where most are finding them.
Go to Store Locator - Verizon Wireless and look at the Corporate stores (first tab). I had to call 2; while both had them in stock, the first quoted the $199.97 price. The second said $49.97 and it was because the Bionic was now "free" (with 2-year contract). I probably could've gotten one at the first store if I talked to them more.
I have to put a caveat there. According to Lapdock 100 - Overview - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA the Lapdock 100 works with most Motorola smartphones. The lapdock we're talking about is made for the Bionic's shape (with or without the Motorola extended battery) so I don't think the RAZR will fit. It might work if you get a short cable with mini connectors so you connect the cable to the lapdock and then to the phone.
