Verizon, Sprint and AT&T soon to get the newly introduced Motorola Lapdock 100
Motorola Mobility introduced on Tuesday the Motorola Lapdock100. With a 10.1 inch high-resolution screen, and an ergonomically-slanted keyboard that features dedicated Android keys, the Lapdock 100 offers "desktop class" tabbed web browsing that uses Wi-Fi or the user's smartphone data plan. Weighing in at 2.2 pounds, this is a lightweight, mobile way to get the most out of specific Motorola models.

Thanks to the ability of the Lapdock 100 to multitask, users can answer a text or take a call while browsing. or using an app from the Android Market. The device is equipped with the latest Firefox browser and Adobe Flash.  A File Manager, like the one seen on desktop PC's, will allow users to view, move, copy, paste and delete files on a phone or a microSDcard. If you need more memory, extra drives could be connected to the Lapdock 100 via the two USB ports on the device. The Lapdock 100 is portable and can run as long as 5 hours using its rechargeable batteries.

The Motorola Lapdock 100 will support "multiple Motorola smartphones" according to the manufacturer., including the upcoming Motorola ATRIX 2, the Motorola PHOTON 4G, and the Motorola DROID BIONIC along with future webtop-enabled devices released by Motorola. While pricing wasn't mentioned, the Motorola Lapdock 100 will launch from AT&T on October 17th and later this quarter will be released by Verizon and Sprint.

I hear you. I'm looking to see what the cost will be for a lapdock for me once my employee discount kicks in at my new employer.

until they can get these things under $200, I dont see the point. you can buy a brand new laptop with a 15" screen for around $300. hopefully this one being more universal will help drive down cost.

As a owner of a Notion Ink Adam, an iPad 2, a Windows 7 Ultimate PC, a Photon and (my wife's) HTC Evo 3D, $200 is the sweetspot. Another $400 - $600 almost-full-featured-device isn't gonna fly in the market.
