Not so long ago, Motorola tried to win us all over by creating the “LapDock”. Although it came with the ability to turn mobile phones into a laptop was insanely cool and appealing, the price was a complete turn off. In fact, when it was first released, customers were being asked to pay a ridiculous $500 for the device. Now, a brand new unit can be found on the internet for around $300. For that price, why wouldn’t anyone just go and buy a ligit laptop, net book, or even a tablet? Well thankfully, Motorola and AT&T finally got the message.
As of now, you can head over to AT&T’s website and get the accessory for your Motorola Atrix 4G for a mere $50. But be careful, this Laptop mutant has one teeny tiny flaw: “Full Firefox browser use with AT&T Mobile Broadband requires DataPro 4GB plan.” We are guessing that if you have this plan on your Atrix 4G, you’re covered. If not, AT&T is getting really hungry with your money.
Now that the LapDock has sunk to an incredible 90% off of its original retail price ($500 to $50), will you (Motorola Atrix 4G users) be picking it up anytime soon? Let us know in the comments below.

Fail at reporting guys….. You post a few day old story from engadget and don’t check to see if the offer is still valid? The dock is out of stock! Why bother posting this?
The Firefox browser will be fully functional on WiFi regardless of
tethering plan. Firefox on the webtop will not work on 3G/4G unless you
have the tethering plan (although the Android version of Firefox will).
Supposedly there are tricks to tether without the plan which may or may
not enable the browser on 3G/4G, but AT&T is getting savvy to those,
so it’s probably not a good idea.
I just got one for $60 from Ben’s Outlet that works great. I don’t have the tethering plan and Firefox runs great over wifi. Fantastic device, a few flaws but I’d say well worth between $100 and $150, a steal at $60 (Amazon has it for $70)
