    Give me a few and I can try them. Albeit my phone sits next to my router so i'm on wifi, but I can try the 4g for you.

    I think I'm going to get one too. Seems like it's worth it.

    I ended up getting the HD Dock today. Yeah, totally worth it. Can't wait until the Smart Controller I ordered from Verizon shows up later this week.

    Love mine, but when I plugged it into my TV and TV ONLY, loaded up the lapdock, and watched a Youtube video it was small. So I hit the fullscreen button and now the lapdock is frozen. I tried to reset all data for the dock app but nothing is fixing it.

    Is there a difference between using the HD Dock vs connecting an HDMI cable from phone to TV?

    Here, here .... trying to figure out what this thread is about:

    HD Dock?

    HDMI out to TV?

    I've been able to "Mirror on Display" to TV with all programs so far without any glitches, i.e., Browser, Youtube, MX Video Player Pro, in full stretch landscape mode.

    As far as I know (please anyone, share to the contrary), the HD Dock serves as a desktop charger with simultaneous HDMI out functionality and the abilty to serve as a desktop digital clock while charging.

    How does Smart Controller come into play?

    BTW, HD Dock does ROCK!!

    You're exactly right with the functions of the HD Dock, and the Smart Controller is supposed to let you control what's on the screen from across the room. It can also take calls so you don't have to unplug the phone from the dock.

    I can't find (on Motorola's site) if the HD dock comes with the HDMI and Power cord. Does it?

    Dock comes with power cord butno hdmi though. For that I suggest accstation or eforcity sellers on Ebay.

    I have used hdmi sans dock and it uses mirror. It does not activate Web top. The web top is what makes this awesome. They give you a pip set up where a small part of screen is the mirror of your phone, the rest is like a regular computer desktop with full Firefox! And please let us know how that smart controller is. looks awesome!

    Oooops, my bad... I didn't realize Smart Controller was a separate hardware accessory (I was confusing it with Smart Actions). This phone just DOES too much. Now, another thing to put on my list. Got the Lapdock 100, haven't used it yet because I was kind of waiting for the 500 Pro to make it on the market (it's on Verizon's website but, not in stores yet). However, I think it will be too big and heavy (compared to the 100) and, therefore, it will lose that light and portable practicality.

    For those asking later in the thread:
    The HD Multimedia Dock is packaged with two pricepoints.
    Both the $59.99 and $99.99, respectively, include the Micro USB Wall Charger/AC Adapter; the $99.99 package also includea the Micro HDMI cable.

    I got my HD Dock in today and tried to watch NFL Network on NFL Mobile app on my tv but it keeps giving me a error that says "HDMI/Tv out cable is plugged in". Anyone else get this? Is the app blocking output to a TV? Tried it with just the cable and same error. I have a Droid Razr

    Yes, the NFL is VERY protective of their property and doesn't want anyone connecting their phone and watching games on a TV. Not sure why since you get the games over the air but that's the NFL.

    got them all. lapdock, hd docking station, smart controller. everything works as advertised. the smart controller is able to make and receive calls as well as pointing and clicking, and it has the android control buttons. its nice being able to site across the room and control everything remotely. I'm typing this on the lapdoc. I hope MOTO keeps the webtop accessories coming.

    Hey, newbie here... I'm looking to pull the trigger on a Maxx soon. I've been studying and researching Razr accessories and it looks like the keyboard with track pad should take care of most of my needs. Question, do you need a dock to get the phone in web top mode? Or, can you accomplish this with just an HDMI cord?

    The dock is needed for the webtop mode. You can do mirror mode with just the hdmi cord, though.

    They make a little webtop connector that plugs in.

    Oh yea, I saw that thing. Thanks guys. Anyone using wireless keyboards out there? That seems like a pretty cool way to work from the sofa with images on the big screen.
