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.
