Lapdock 100 to go beyond ATT with Sprint deal

Motorola's Lapdock 100 won't just be confined to AT&T when it ships. A leak Saturday from Sprint's internal employee rewards newsletter relayed to Engadget has the phone-to-netbook transformer shipping on October 21. It would be arriving just four days after it arrives at AT&T linked to the Atrix 2.

The 10.1-inch Lapdock is the first model from Motorola to not be attached to one specific device. On Sprint, it will work with the Photon 4G, but it should also work with both the Atrix 2 and Verizon's Droid Bionic. It provides the full Webtop environment, complete with an adaptation of Firefox, a file browser, and other desktop-like apps.

It has five hours of battery life independent of the phone it's attached to and has a pair of USB ports. A Verizon edition is expected before the end of the year.

    dead on arrival

    look at the UI.... resemble anything you've seen before? maybe... OS X!
    if this device ever had a chance to sell over 100,000 units, Apple would take them to court too! When are companies like Samsung, Motorola, Microsoft ever going to learn how to come up with truly innovative and original designs.

    Do NOT buy this!

    The lapdock is a loser all around. Took Motorola three weeks and many, many phone calls to finally ship me one. It worked for 48 hours and now won't load the webtop. Three attempts with tech support to fix and they have no idea why not. Their system doesn't recognize the serial number, so they can't process the repair order. Here I sit with a useless piece of electronics and no way to get it fixed. Motorola customer service is so inept that I would never recommend trying to deal with them.
