    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 would have bought the dock if; A. The price wasn't so incredibly high. B. AT&T hadn't forced a tether plan down our throats, just to use it.

    So... I don't think I'll be using any of these docks in the near future, until AT&T gets the picture. Or I switch carriers and they don't try the same garbage.

    I agree completely with those two points as both were my reasons for not getting the Lapdock as well... and still are.

    Do you think the lapdock will make it to $250 or less? Probably on a close-out!
