Motorola DROID BIONIC HD Station Hands-on
Essentially, the HD Station dock looks like any other pedestal dock available for other smartphones, but the beauty in it all is that you can essentially turn the DROID BIONIC into a quick and easy to use mini-computer of some sort. In the rear, three full sized USB ports that allow you to connect USB peripherals to it – like a mouse, keyboard, or flash drive. Of course, the entire thing actively charges the handset while it’s docked, and it connects to a high definition television via its microHDMI cable.
After selecting the Webtop option on the handset, it transforms into one giant trackpad that’s used to navigate around the Webtop interface – plus, there are left and right mouse clicks to help better select something. Furthermore, you can easily input text by using the on-screen keyboard available on the handset as well. With Webtop, we’re still able to interact with the DROID BIONIC since a virtual representation of the handset is displayed within the interface. On top of that, Mozilla Firefox is available to provide us that desktop-like experience right on the big screen.
For something that’s constructed out of plastic, it doesn’t necessarily exude something that’s priced up there at $100, but it makes up with its depth of functionality with the entire Webtop experience.
