    Should be getting the lapdock in a few days, but had a question. Is it possible to transfer photos/files onto it to upload via the lapdock? The idea was to use a camera with a full size SD card and transfer to the phone/lapdock to upload. Does the lapdock have a USB port?

    yes, there are two usb ports in the back of the lapdock. It does recognize flash drives and I assume would recognize a full size sd card plugged into a usb card reader as well. I believe the only caveat to the lapdock recognizing a drive plugged into it's usb, is that it has to be formatted in fat32.

    Bumping this to the top:

    Is there a way you can hook up a printer and print with this?

    You may have to use the Motoprint app for printing.

    I haven't tried it yet, but my guess is that it wouldn't work. Most printers require that you install print drivers and since you can't do this on the lapdock / bionic, it poses a problem since the lapdock and printer can't communicate with each other.

    Like aaf709 said, the motoprint app is your best bet for printing.
