    Wink HD multimedia dock review

    I got the multimedia dock last night and hooked it up to my hdtv.

    I managed to pair it with my Logitech diNovo Mini keyboard/mouse

    diNovo Mini

    Pairing it was kinda tricky. When the Atrix asked for a PIN, I entered 0000. After some research I determined that I also had to enter 0000 on the diNovo keyboard and press enter to get them to pair. Worked pretty slick after that.

    The setup is both good and bad. It is neat having the phone interface on my hdtv in addition to the full Firefox browser. Navigation worked pretty well. Not too many hiccups.

    But the video resolution isn't very good. When I set it up, it recognized the resolution on my hdtv and set the webtop resolution to match it. But I also have an old PC connected to my hdtv via hdmi and the resolution on it looks much better.

    The other issue I had was about every other time I put the Atrix into the dock, it didn't recognize the configuration and webtop was not an option. I could pull it out and put it back in and the webtop option appeared on the Atrix. Frustrating.

    I played around in the multimedia mode too. I recall some demos from CES showing the webtop interface as one of the options when in this mode. But it didn't show up for me.
    Hmmmm.

    Overall I like it. It is a slick interface and pretty amazing that a cell phone can do all that. And hey, it charges my phone at the same time.

    Or maybe I just like gadgets.

    Thanks for posting this, kansas...I have the dock, but haven't played around with it yet. Now I have an idea what to expect.

    Any idea how to do a pinch zoom function on this setup? I was running phone apps and couldn't figure out how to do it with a mouse.

    I should add that you will get better results if you render movie videos using the multimedia application for the Atrix versus webtop.
    Not sure why there is a difference, but there is.
    I also found that .m4v is the best format as the other formats work in webtop, but are not recognized in the multimedia app.
