    Yes, the phone itself uses a ton of it's own RAM and I've found streaming videos on the stock ROM is not very effective. When I watch videos, I use the mobile view in full screen mode instead of Firefox. If you can manage the memory better and keep down the ram hogs, you can get some impressive results.

    I watch netflix, slingbox, youtube all perfectly over the lap dock. Like Graymayre said, it's best not to have a lot of apps running in the background on the phone when using the lap dock.

    Got mine!

    :) Got mine today around noon and been playing with it on and off since... SOOOO worth the 50 bucks! This thing rocks! dancedroid Even in the store when the guy told me it was 50 I was like no way! "Why?" I asked. He said he didn't know but that it was probably a promotion or something. So I got it and am typing this on it now. I've already tried a lot of browsing, a little youtube (embeded in articles) and soon will try phone calls. Evernote works great in the phone window on the desktop and so does my bookmarks widget. tried wifi and 4G both are flawless with the dock. I read that it gets 8 hours on a charge plus charges the phone... SWEET! I also like the app dock on the bottom of the screen, the big touchpad, the USB ports (I have a mouse hooked up) and the build quality and design seem to be excellent... Highly recommended! :)

    Does anyone know if there's an app that allows you to see the actual battery level of the lapdock? Sort of like the "dual battery monitor" app I have on my Transformer tablet that shows battery level for both the tablet and the keyboard docking station.

    Does anyone know if the Seidio case will work with the lap dock?

    Thanks! :)

    push the button on the front of the lapdock that has a battery on it. each light represents 20% battery charge. So 5 lights equals full charge.
    also the light on the right rear of the lapdock beside the screen is a steady red when the battery is low, flashes white when charging, and is a solid white when fully charged and plugged in

    Thanks, UR. Yes, I do know about those tiny LEDs on the front. But 20% increments is a huge gap. I'm hoping for an app or widget that gives an actual reading.

    Considering how snug the Bionic fits with the extended battery, I would say not without a bit of surgery.

    I finally got mine hands on one today and it's pretty sweet, especially for the money.

    Can anyone recommend a laptop bag for this? Especially those that carry this around with an iPad?

    Yea I was looking at that option, but don't think I want to go that route .. gonna try a Diztronic TPU case for $12 to see if it works.

    You're best bet is just to buy a regular carrying case for a laptop. The only one I found specifically made for the lap dock was just a sleeve, which, like someone else mentioned, leaves no room for accessories or anything else.

    Where are you all finding these things? My local Verizon store says they are all sold out within a 100 mile radius, none left in warehouse, and production has ceased. Apparently, from what I have been told, the Bionic is indeed out of production and so are all of the accessories.
