Motorola Lapdock 100 Made Formal for AT&T, Sprint and Verizon Devices

While Motorola and many of their OEM carriers have mentioned the Lapdock 100 casually in device press releases, we still haven’t had a formal announcement for availability or pricing. That’s what the press release below is for, though.

Starting out it will be compatible with AT&T’s Motorola ATRIX 2, Sprint’s Motorola Photon 4G and Verizon’s Motorola DROID BIONIC with future high-end devices also getting love. As for availability, AT&T’s will be here Oct. 17th (no pricing) while Verizon’s and Sprint’s are coming later in the quarter.

The Lapdock 100 is a 10 inch device that connects with the aforementioned devices via a cable instead of a docking station. They designed it this way so you can easily switch from compatible device to compatible device without having to buy an entirely new dock (though we’re not sure how often most people will switch between Motorola’s phones). Check out more details below.

Making Your Smartphone Even Smarter

New Motorola LAPDOCK™100 Coming Soon to Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and AT&T

Motorola Mobility today introduces the latest smart companion device for its premier line of webtop-enabled smartphones with the arrival of the Motorola LAPDOCK™ 100. Unleashing the full-scale power of select Motorola devices, the new Motorola LAPDOCK 100 gives consumers the ability to reach the ultimate smart mode, play mode, or productivity mode.

Equipped with a bright 10.1 inch high resolution screen, high quality audio, large ergonomically-slanted keyboard with dedicated Android™ keys, touch-pad, multi-tasking capabilities, and desktop-class tabbed web browsing using Wi-Fi or the smartphone’s data plan, the innovative companion device is now more affordable, lightweight, and intuitive.

Motorola LAPDOCK 100 supports full multi-tasking – making it easy to respond to an incoming text or take a call while browsing the web, using any one of the thousands of Android™ apps available, viewing pictures, or listening to music.

Owners of supported Motorola webtop-enabled smartphones can view multiple windows simultaneously, watch or share their favorite movie, type long emails or text messages, and even create full documents with a new keyboard and integrated two-finger scroll touch-pad. Motorola LAPDOCK 100 with webtop includes a recently updated full Firefox® browser and Adobe™ FLASH™, delivering broad compatibility across more content and more sites. Work documents can be viewed using the popular PDF format, edited and shared using QuickOffice™ or Google® Docs, or even printed to a long list of supported printers through the integrated MOTOPRINT™ application. Motorola LAPDOCK 100 also includes a PC-like File Manager, making it convenient and intuitive to view, copy, paste, move or delete files on your smartphone or its integrated SD card. And if more space is needed, the device’s two USB ports support USB storage, so hard drives or thumb drives can be used to back-up or transfer content such as personal pictures, video, or data to and from your phone.

At a mere 2.2lbs (less than 1Kg), Motorola LAPDOCK 100 is designed to be as mobile as its owners’ lives. Compact enough to carry in a back-pack or briefcase, use in the office, in the classroom, at a café or on the couch at home, the device’s up to five hour* battery charges the phone so a user never loses their freedom to be mobile.

Motorola LAPDOCK 100 is compatible with multiple Motorola smartphones, including Motorola ATRIX™ 2, PHOTON™ 4G, and DROID BIONIC by Motorola.** It will also be compatible with future Motorola webtop-enabled devices.

The Motorola LAPDOCK 100 will be available online at AT&T on 10/17. It will also be available through Verizon Wireless and Sprint later this quarter.

    When it gets hacked to work with the Prime, let me know.

    Using an adapter defeats the whole lap”dock” feature. I wish manufacturers kept the same design (and phone size) for their ports so future or variant handsets actually “dock”. Just look at the HTC Rhyme with that sweet speaker dock. Knowing HTC just crapping new phone designs every week,we are not going to have onether handset use that dock sadly.

      Take a look at the main image in the link they provided: http://www.motorola.com/lapdock100 – it certainly looks like the old-style docking option is still there. It’s possible they’ve simply given users another option too…

    • feztheforeigner

      Yes! Manufacturers please stop trying to do your best and stop making new innovative products all the times! Your rarely used docks are not interchangeably compatible with every product you make! We want the same design over and over again! Go Apple!

      If I’m not mistaken which I don’t think I am they have the dock part for current phones because the port is the same on all of them and they should all fit. It has a cord however for future phones in case they have to change the port or its location for some reason. In the end its a good thing making it so that it isn’t only good for one device then it becomes a throw away, you can use it on future devices.

      Anyone else thinking the same?

    Will it work for the first Atrix

  • JonathanBond

    It could work with the Atrix2 o_O

    for the price…. buy. a. tablet.

  • KTAB

    F’in Moto how does this compare with the old dock for the Bionic? Just the cable connection instead of the cradle?

  • A6sinthe

    I’m actually really glad this is coming out. I have the Photon 4G, and Sprint doesn’t have the lapdock (a dummy netbook), just a charging dock with hdmi option. I actually dropped by AT&T to try and buy one but the “dock” part of the lapdock was proprietary to the Atrix. Bastards swapped the connector for micro usb and mini-hdmi! The Photon, essentially the same phone as the Atrix, couldn’t fit. This new lapdock should work so I don’t have to take my heavier laptop computer to school, and that is what I wanted.

  • dman977

    I do not understand why the phone is not docked in place of the trackpad so that the phone becomes the trackpad.
