    Motorola Plans to Offer Atrix-like Docks for More Phones in Future


    Remember "way back" in January when we reported on the Atrix 4G and its dock during CES? Apparently, the dock idea hasn't been doing very well, but Motorola still believes it is a good enough concept that they are going to try again and push it a bit harder. According to a statement from the CEO of Motorola, Sanjay Jha, Motorola plans on creating and releasing more lapdock devices for smartphones in the second half of this year. Here's his official word,
    You will see multiple devices from us in the second half launching with these capabilities, and we will expand the range of our Lapdock devices so we cover a broader price point, addressing both the enterprise premium tier as well as more consumer tiers.
    He also added, "We plan on introducing successive iterations of our Webtop software and accessories that incorporate improved productivity tools and multiple price points." Interesting... I wonder if the Droid 3 will get this functionality? If it did, would it be something you guys would be willing to invest extra money in?

    I like the concept, I just don't like the pricetag

    Agreed... there's no reason for it to cost so much. Look at netbooks... you can get a whole, independent working netbook for as much, or sometimes cheaper than the lapdock. Fail moto, fail.

    I think the unsubsidized dock was like $600! Completely ridiculous and another instance of a wasted opportunity for Moto to do something cutting edge.

    Xer you are correct, the original price of the unsubsidized lapdock was $600 currently I believe that you can get it for $200. Its still not the best idea with the same companies creating tablets. Transformer with the keyboard dock. Its way better looking. I still haven't gotten my hands on a demo yet. To give a good comparison.
