Motorola Lapdock 100 Docking Station Unveiled; Turns Motorola Atrix 2, Photon 4G, and Droid Bionic into Laptops

October 12, 2011, By Leo Xavier

Motorola has introduced a new docking station, the Lapdock 100, which has been designed to let you use your phone as a laptop, provided you own either (or all, if you are rich) of the following devices: the Motorola Atrix 2, Photon 4G, and Droid Bionic.

The Lapdock 100 will be available for purchase for AT&T customers on October 17th. Customers of Verizon and Sprint will be able to get the device by the end of this year.

The new docking station, which measures in at 10.6″ x 9.2″ x 1.2″ and weighs about 2.2 pounds, comes with a 10.1 inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768, 2 USB ports, a QWERTY keyboard with special Android function buttons, and a touchpad that allows two-finger scrolling.


As you might know, this laptop docking station isn’t the first from the company. Earlier this year, the company launched the Atrix 4G smartphone along with the Webtop docking station that came with an 11.6 inch display and a space behind the screen for inserting the handset.

The Lapdock 100 also has a space behind its display for the purpose of docking. But you can also connect your phone using a cable.

But the station does not have brains of its own. It will not work as a standalone device. When you connect your phone, you will be able to do more than just running Android apps on the screen. You will also be able to play with the full desktop version of Firefox and will get access to a file manager and other apps.

The station’s battery should power it for about 5 hours, and you can also recharge your phone’s battery with it. Although it only supports 3 devices at the moment, you can expect it to support upcoming devices as well.

There have been no hints regarding the price tag. Just to let you know, the original Webtop came with a price tag of $499.
