    Atrix 4g Lapdock verses Lapdock 100 Experience

    I currerently have an Atrix 4g and am perfectly satified with it. I am however considering getting a lapdock. Is the lapdock experience on a Lapdock 100 improved over the Atrix 4g enough to warrent an upgrade to another Moto phone?

    Well the Lapdock 100 has a 10.1" screen while the original Lapdock has a 11.6" screen size. That would probably be the biggest difference. It would be nice if the Firefox was faster, but I'm not sure any of the newer phones would be notably faster, you'd have to compare directly (all are dual core at this point, so mostly unlikely).

    It's a bit too bad they made all the "next generation" stuff not the same compatible connector. Although apparently you can modify the connector to make it work.

    Interestingly enough I noticed they also have a VGA webtop dongle connector for the "next generation" which plugs into the HDMI/USB port allowing VGA connection and webtop.

    (corrected Lapdock screen size)

    That would really depend on what ROM you are running(if any), as the ROM may not have the appropriate files for its operation.

    I don't flash another ROM, but I did "freeze" a lot of the stock programs. Do you know what this needs to run?

    I think that Monsta's point was that some of the Atrix 1 roms have the software built in (or can be added) which permit you to access the lapdock - and some don't. It's not so much a case of what apps you froze, as what *rom* you're running.

    DockService and PortalApp are the main two apps/services that are needed for Webtop, but there could be more apps tied to it.

    Do you really need the tether plan to run it through your home wireless?

    If you run wifi you don't need a tether plan. It makes it easier to type for sure. I now notice Motorola itself is selling this for $99. Someone posted an ebay sale for $60.
