DROID Bionic Weptop Accessories Start to Arrive at Verizon Stores

Over the weekend, we posted up a ton of info about the line of webtop accessories for the DROID Bionic that are expected to be available at launch including the brand new Webtop Adapter.  Those same accessories are now starting to arrive in stores which is a good sign that we are on schedule for that September 8 release.  We are a little concerned still about pricing though, and were hoping to see some sticker prices on these.  The LapDock for the Atrix was horribly priced and to our knowledge, did not sell well.  Could Moto possibly go down that same sky-high pricing road again?

Oh, and we heard a couple of rumors that a pre-order could potentially start on Thursday (9/1), but are looking for confirmation on that.  Gettin’ closer.

    Hopefully the pre-order is on Thrusday am gonna order it on midnight after work, if this is true.

    I dont need any of these.  I just want a standard dock to charge my phone at night and the car dock for GPS use.  I MIGHT get the adapter if the price falls on Amazon or something.  But really i have no real need for any of these pictured here.

    These LapDocks will work on all future Motorola phones with the Lapdock feature.  You won’t have to buy a new one even if the placement of the ports are different.

    As a gesture of thanks for removing the crazy T-Mo ads, I just spent the last few minutes clicking through all your ads on the page.  I salute you DL, for staying classy.  Keep on keeping on.

    I have never been so impatient/excited for a phone in my life

  • Bill Morrow

    I am just trying to decide, is the LapDock worth getting when I already have a Xoom?

    • Anonymous

      id say no.  Seems a little reduntant to me.  Why not just get a keyboard dock for your Xoom?

    I’m still sore that the D3 didn’t come with Webtop functionality as was originally rumored.

  • Trooper

    Not sure what to think about this.

  • http://twitter.com/Dapke Dan Lampke

    Well, I was torn between the Bionic and holding out for the Nexus Prime.  However, today my DInc decided that it didn’t like the verizon signal and wont talk to it anymore.  New radio install didn’t help.

    So….time to get pumped for the Bionic!

  • Illinipoke98

    Other than the full blown firefox, can you load up other software that is not on the phone?   Trying tofigure out what you can do on the webtop dock that you can’t on  the phone itself.

    • Illinipoke98

      I’d be interested if it could run light weight html and image editors. 

      • Anonymous

        As far as I know you’re limited to what it comes with but check XDA, I’m sure they’re trying all sorts of stuff.

      • Anonymous

        Yes.  My friend uses a few programs like that on his Atrix dock

    Do we have any conformation that the PHONES have arrived?  Demo/Dummies?  Training?

      Yes.  My store here in town has 3 for training.

    Lapdock seems interesting, but I’d be more interested if they made a screen dock that you slid your phone into creating a tablet for watching media and surfing, much like a regular tablet, just powered by the phone.

  • Mctypething

    I still don’t really understand these products. Okay, the laptop dock is pretty self-explanatory, but what the heck does the HD station do? As for the adaptor, I don’t get it. Phones don’t have PowerPoint on them, the last time I checked, so how can you edit a PowerPoint presentation using your phone. I think they need to explain these a little better for people to get interested.

      There is Quick Office Pro.

    • Anonymous

      The adapter allows you to use the webtop software but you need to connect your own monitor, keyboard and mouse. Basically what the laptop dock does sans the screen and keyboard. Each of these devices allows your phone to be used on a bigger screen thus allowing you to use software such as a power point editor or a full blown version of firefox.

      • Carl Weathers

        If you have a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, couldn’t you just plug your monitor into the HDMI port on the phone and use the webtop software without worrying about the bulky adapter? Knowing Verizon they’ll probably make you switch to a tiered tethering plan and abandon your unlimited data in order to use this feature because they’ll claim it is making your phone act like a tethered laptop. ;-)

      You can absolutely show power point presentations from it and I believe Quick Office allows for some editing as well though I haven’t tried.

  • Jason

    The closer we get and still no word and no advertising is starting to make me think that it won’t be coming out on the 8th. I’m just about over all this crap though, not sure why they would still be keeping this a secret if it was coming out in 9 days. We already know everything else about the phone so what the F***?!?! lol these guys are so aggrevating, it’s not the cold war, It’s a damn phone!

    • Mctypething

      Agree with you 100%. I guess I don’t really understand the marketing behind smart phones. I’m not sure how it benefits anyone to keep the release date a secret. Just let it out already.

      Wait until the NFL regular season starts, it will be all over the place.

      • Carl Weathers

        Maybe they’ll have the Droid Bionic Girl from the teaser beating up on Cleatus the Fox NFL Sports robot during the football games this Sunday. 

        • Jim Dandy

          Nope, it will be a featured product on NBC Sunday Night Football.

  • Markduenas

    boo yah!

  • Booboolala2000

    So why wouldn’t these be available for the D3? I don’t see the difference in specs minus lte.

    • Anonymous

      My guess would be not enough RAM in the D3

      • Booboolala2000

        I always forget the Ram. Dammit.

  • Jason Purp

    They should ship ‘em on back.

  • Kixofmyg0t

    I honestly was dead set on getting the lapdock for the Bionic when I pick it up…..

    But then I had to think…..what exactly would I use it for? I already have a few laptops….AND most of the time I’m on my XOOM. So I really have no use for it.

  • T Hall

    Any word if Verizon will require a tethering plan for the Laptop dock like ATT did with the Atrix?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=10215724 Raj Bhatt

      Wow ATT required tethering? That’s BS!

      • T Hall

        Yeah probably another reason the expensive dock was not very popular…  Hopefully they get the pricing figured out this time around!

        • Anonymous

          Wow I had no idea AT&T required a tethering package.  That’s nuts.  I was looking at the lapdock as being a nice little dodge around the ol’ tethering mess.  Guess they thought of that too

    • Jason

      isn’t the laptop dock a extension to the screen and keyboard? How could att charge you tethering when all your really doing is just making your phone bigger?

      • EC8CH

        Another question: How can they charge for tethering on plans that don’t have unlimited data?

        The answer: Wireless Carriers are Evil

        • http://twitter.com/Underscore_Hero Kelvin Tso

          Tethering plans and data plans are slightly different, if you have unlimited on your phone, and you have 2GB of tethering on the phone, you can only tether up to 2GB (unless you root). If you have 5GB of data, and 2GB of tethering, you have 2GB of tethering, but whatever you don’t use with tethering, it adds to the original 5GB. So if you have 5GB and 2GB, you have a total of 7GB to use with the phone, but only max 2GB worth of tethering.

          • EC8CH

            Point is charging extra for Tethering with tiered data is only slightly less evil than charging $20 for a texting plan.

    • DanielZ

      This is almost as important as how much the lapdock cost.

    • Art Saenz

      go cougs!

  • Anonymous

    Just curious, what would you guys be willing to pay for the laptop dock? I think the max I would pay is $200.

    • T Hall

      Yeah I would maybe go to $250 – if it is improved upon the previous version.

    • Anonymous

      Verizon will likely meet or exceed your max. ;)

    • Anonymous

      I’m with you, I’d say $200 max.

    • http://twitter.com/Rocko9999 Rocko Smith

      $200 but that will never happen. With the quantity being produced they will be taking a loss at that price.

    • Djlowproz

      Id say between $250-$300 for this dock.

    • Anonymous

      The Atrix ones are going for $175 from AT&T at the moment

    • docking

      I’m hoping under 200.  You figure that together with the phone price, anything under 400 total will beat any laptop price and almost stay neutral with their zoom.  I really want this, but cost will have to be valued.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=10215724 Raj Bhatt

    I called about a pre-order today and the reps are still clueless. We are so damn close, you’d think we would know something by know.

    • Ron Henson

      They aren’t clueless. A customer service rep about three weeks ago slipped and mentioned an email concerning training. I would assume that training has started and includes a gag order.

  • http://twitter.com/rkein87 Rob Kein

    It will be priced high again…It is known.

  • http://twitter.com/vangoroth ivan bayu

    oh well, if the lapdock runs honeycomb it would have been better

    • http://twitter.com/Rocko9999 Rocko Smith

      It simply mirrors the phone so how could it run HC?

      • TomHolmes

        It literally is the phone but it doesn’t really mirror the phone’s function. The webtop runs its own little Linux OS (on the phone’s processor) that offers a browser and some other functionality for the larger screen, including a mirror of the phone itself. There are lots of videos out there on YouTube that you can watch to get the feel of it, and I recommend doing so before plopping down a wad of cash on the little doo-dad or especially on the web-top itself.

        • http://twitter.com/Rocko9999 Rocko Smith

          I saw the cable only dock lets you mirror the phone completely, I assumed this did also.

        Ashton Kutcher walks out from behind the Verizon customer service counter and informs the Bionic it’s been “PRIMED”

      Agreed. It has been delayed until January

      Yep, totally fake. Scam. Don’t buy it when it comes out. It’s a refurbished OG Droid circuit board inside a new plastic case.

        I heard it was leftover parts from the CLIQ?

      • Myfacetwitterbookspace

        I’d like to know what kind of car some of you drive. Very farrel does a new car come out (even when it says “all new”), that has more than 10% in new parts.
