A Look at DROID 4 Accessories: Two LapDocks, Two HD Docks and Wireless Keyboard with Trackpad

The DROID 4 should be here in just a couple of weeks on December 8, so I’m sure some of you were wondering what the accessory situation would look like. Since the DROID 3 missed out on LapDocks and other webtop goodies, would this phone get compatibility with them? It most certainly will. As you can see in the image up top, the whole array of docks, LapDocks, car docks and keyboards are on the list. The wireless keyboard with trackpad seems fairly new, so we’ll be on the lookout for the improvements made to it over the standard Bluetooth option.

This truly is a RAZR with a keyboard and slightly smaller screen. Check out the full specs here and press shots of the device here.

Cheers ___!

  • Droid 8 – too little,too late.

    I will be locked into my Gnex for the next two years.   At this rate, by then I’ll be lamenting the fact that the Droid 8 still has a locked bootloader, no SD card and no removable battery.

    • STiK

      Umm no… In 2 years you will still be waiting for your Gnex.

      It’ll definitely have an SD card, it isn’t a samsung nexus device or an HTC with a mammoth WVGA display, and it’s much too early to start calling some kind of unremovable battery trend just because they went that way with ONE PHONE.

    The LapDock is a great idea (and I really do think it’s the future of smartphones) but Moto needs to enhance it further in 2012. It’s a real disappointment.

    Now let’s see if they charge to tether with these devices like Att did with the Atrix. Knowing Verizon, they will.

  • Anonymous

    These lapdocks will be more appealing once Google & OEMs start working together & start incorporating ChromeBook connectivity/docking with the phones……At the moment the whole lapdock experience is half-baked, and don’t get me started on the Firefox situation (which is not nearly as ridiculous as the “Bing/Google Search” travesty, but still pretty stupid IMHO)

      Your absolutely correct.  Ice cream sandwich should have it baked in and let the 3rd party go hog wild with universal docks and adapters.  All you need is hdmi out and bluetooth for the keyboard and mouse.

        Look back at éclair and gingerbread. (Froyo is a mixed bag) don’t think there’ll be a ICS phone till next June aside from the Galaxy Nexus.

    • Dominick DeVito

      That’s Motorola for you.

      Great idea – completely screw the pooch

    The Droid 4 looks ugly. Normally, I’m impressed by their build quality and look. But starting from the RAZR, they seem to be going down hill.

      You held a RAZR?

        Sorry, I meant only looks of their devices. Build quality on Moto is pretty darn solid. I’ll edit my previous comment now.

    • Dominick DeVito

      I don’t like Moto these days but even I love the Razr hardware (as long as it’s powered off).  :p

    speaking of worthless accessories, I think I am going to combine the dyson ball and nike shox to create a vacuum shoe. i’ll sell more than those lap-docks

    does the galaxy nexus have a multimedia dock with hdmi out?

    • Anonymous

      Sure they will. They have a hdmi adapter supposedly so I am sure they will make a dock. Only slowdown here, is the fact that everyone else will use docks made for the slightly thinner gsm version while the Verizon version may have a proprietary dock just for their version. In Verizon speak, that means an opportunity to charge more.

    Nexus gonna be Verizons bastard stepchild…

      G-Nex is already Verizon’s bastard stepchild!  :-(  SMH

    Kellen you are on fire with these D4 leaks. Nice work! December 8 can’t get here soon enough.

    • Mike

      Yes, keep the D4 news coming, thanks!. I’d only get the car dock though.

      • Steve

        It’s pretty cool if you have your GPS on and remove your D4 from the car dock, it’ll automatically save your car’s location.

  • Rikstr

    This is what they will be pushing instead of the GNex?!  

    • http://thisisjohncoffey.com GRAND MASTER SEN$Ei {{-_-}}™

      Duh. Verizon bloatware gets all the branding. Plus they wanted to keep a more mystical feeling about it like the HTC Nexus One. In other words, expect more push from Google than from Big Red. {{-_-}}

    This phone could replace my OG Droid, but then I realize it’s 6.3 ounces. MORE than the OG. No wonder they don’t call it RAZR Pro, it’d have to be RAZR Fat.

    Back to the Nexus, I just hope that it’s mounts are as good as Moto’s.

    • Anonymous

      You must have the arms of a 12 year old asian girl if 6.3 ounces is too much for you.

      • Anonymous

        It’s not as much the weight in hand, I’d just rather not have a massive Rezound in my pocket. Why should I have less screen and more weight? 

        • Anonymous

          It’s safe to assume that if a phone has a physical keyboard and LTE it’s going to be thicker and slightly heavier. For the people that absolutely need a real keyboard they’ll settle for a smaller screen and more bulk.

            Samsung Stratosphere managed just fine.

          • Anonymous

            The Stratosphere is .4 ounces heavier, is around the same size, with the same size display and in general is a joke of a phone.

          • Anonymous

            Stratosphere is 5.8 oz. Droid 4 is 6.3 oz. how is that lighter? Especially for something that is using “RAZR Styling” 

            Maybe Samsung products are designed with my Asian girl arms in mind.

          • Anonymous

            So you’re telling me you can tell the difference between .5 ounces?

    If for some reason this delays the Galaxy Nexus and they both aren’t released on December 8th, I may have to just buy the Rezound. 

    • Jeremy Turnley

      I did that on the 15th, when the extended trial period started. The Rezound is OK, but the battery life is as bad as you hear, and my old car charger can’t put out enough juice to keep it charged when it’s on LTE and running navigation and Pandora.  I was always planning on trading in for the gnex, but even if there were no gnex, I would probably not keep it for those reasons.

      • Anonymous

        Been hearing mixed reviews about the battery life, some reporting good(& not just good for an HTC) & some reporting bad such as yourself, pretty 50/50, how do you like the device besides the lack of battery life???……No current 4G phone is gonna be able to charge/give great battery life using Nav & streaming music using only a constant 4G signal, they just draw too much power, so I can’t hold that against the Rezound (hopefully the 2nd-gen LTE cards coming next year give the consistent/better battery life we are looking for)….But as I said earlier, would love to hear your thoughts on the device as a whole so far

        My old Blackberry charger was the same way. But it only put out like 700mA. So I bought 2 Amp each wall and car chargers meant for tablets for my Bionic. Works like a charm.

    I’d like the D4 to have the now gone optical pad so you can have mouse pointer for websites. Especially for activating mouse hover elements.

    • Eckard

      An optional mouse pointer for the browser would be pretty useful and provide a more full web experience. The design of some sites sometimes make links look too similar to the text. Also, menus usually require a mouse hover action to activate them. A mouse would also help control Flash content (I’m sure what replaces Flash would benefit from a mouse as well.

      • Niko20

        I’m glad that there are still sliders being made, although not as many as I’d like. I don’t understand why manufacturers are removing physical features from phones when Android has increased keyboard (sliders) and mouse (use for an optical pad) support in versions 3.0+. I’m not going to buy a separate keyboard and mouse when it should be built.

    • Paul

      That would be great but for now the arrow keys can activate some mouse over elements. Not ideal though but still better than the touch only workaround.

  • http://www.searingarrow.com AlienSix

    I dont understand why MOTO keeps making different laptop docks for every phone. I thought the idea was to create a universal laptop dock for all of the phones that support it.

      The 100 is smaller and the 500 is bigger, the only similarity is that they both are worthless

    • CaptainKGB

      Lapdock 100 and lapdock pro 500 are compatible with webtop enabled phones Bionic and up (some keyboard “hot keys” do not work with bionic and Atrix in the current software build).

      Very useful for those of us that work behind an iron curtain firewall.

      • CaptainKGB

        Almost forgot, the web cam will not work with current software build on the Bionic and Atrix either, “usb device not recognized”.
