And just like that, Motorola has killed off the Lapdock. The unsuccessful laptop-like accessory hasn’t exactly been flying off store shelves since its release and we’ve been expecting its demise ever since the Motorola Atrix HD lacked support for the over-priced accessory. We’ve seen older versions pop up on the daily deal sites in the past, and now it looks like Death has come for the latest version — the Lapdock 100 — which has found itself marked down to a staggering $50 in Verizon retail stores (not available online).
This latest clearance/fire sale is an effort to clear stores of remaining stock and will most likely be the last you’ll here from the Lapdock — a product with great potential (seriously, I wish my phone supported one) but tablet-like pricing caused it to be shunned by consumers. Pity. If you were looking to snag one on the cheap (the 100 series is compatible with all Motorola Lapdock enabled handsets), better run into your local Verizon store to see if they have any left. These wont last long.
Oh, and you might want to keep an eye out for the Lapdock 500 Pro. It’s currently listed as “out of stock” on Verizon’s website, but if the subject of a similar fire sale in stores, it’ll make quite-the-steal with a 14-inch display, ethernet port and VGA out.
