Motorola DROID BIONIC to connect with "affordable" Webtop adapter and other accessories

Motorola DROID BIONIC to connect with
It looks like Motorola DROID BIONIC users will be able to ask, "What's up dock?" The highly anticipated, drool producing smartphone will be able to connect to a few docks including the Lapdock, which turns the handset into a laptop computer with an 11.6 inch screen and a full-sized QWERTY keyboard. A trackpad helps you navigate your way around the screen and of course, a full-Firefox browser (not the mobile version) takes you wherever you want to go on the internet.

Despite appearances to the contrary, this is not a legitimate Verizon or Motorola account

The HD Station for the Motorola DROID BIONIC comes with USB ports allowing you to connect to peripherals like a keyboard, a mouse and a printer. When not in use, the dock will charge your device. The Webtop adapter offers an affordable way to create, edit or share pictures, videos and PowerPoint presentations wherever there is an HDTV or monitor available to connect to using HDMI cables. You can also charge your phone while it is plugged into the adapter.

Remember that tweet we reported yesterday, confirming the September 8th launch of the Motorola DROID BIONIC? Supposedly, that tweet came from an "official" @DROIDBIONIC Twitter account. As it turns out, despite the apparent legitimacy of the account, Verizon and Motorola are both saying that it is a fake. PCMag.com is reporting that Brenda Raney, a public relations spokeswomen for Big Red, confirmed that @DROIDBIONIC is not an official Verizon Wireless Twitter feed. As for the manufacturer, Motorola spokeswoman Danielle McNally said via an email that it is not an official Motorola Twitter feed. Of course, this means that we still do not have confirmation of a September 8th launch of the smartphone. We would still leave the date circled on the calendar, but based on that previously leaked ad from Verizon, a September launch is still expected, although it just might not be on the 8th.

a rep at an AT&T location i visited said they weren't selling the Laptop Docks too well but that they were selling the other docks well enough. i haven't even SEEN the Photon's Laptop Dock. it'd be great if they were all backwards compatible.

The iPhone will probably come out in a couple of years, maybe 4 or 5... And at that point they will come up with a really catchy and literal name for it and say "Its the next big thing, The innovation of Apple" hahahaha

I'm not hating on apple, I wish it success... All I want is for isheep to see, what the actual techniques they use for them to drink the kool-aid hahaha

I really like the idea of these docking stations. There 2 things that bug me though!
Will a dual core phone be able to do everything I want it to and will I have to buy a new docking station/laptop dock etc for every new phone I buy?

I feel there needs to be a peripheral standard set by Google that all manufacturers should adhere to..
