Asus Padfone 2, Motorola has decided to pull the plug on the software and the accessory. When launched, it was considered a huge idea that would be the perfect way to position Android as a businessman's platform, able to turn a smartphone into a powerful tablet for the busy pinstriper on the go.
But the idea wasn't executed perfectly. The phone and lapdock accessory was priced at $500 together, and the tablet at first ran too slowly until it the software was updated. A pet project of former CEO Sanjay Jha, the Webtop software was expected to be included with every high-end Motorola handset. Motorola says the idea has become redundant with more desktop like features included on the Android OS.
Starting with the Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE, the Webtop software was no longer loaded on Motorola devices. That includes the Motorola DROID RAZR M and the upcoming Motorola DROID RAZR HD and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD.
