    Question Multimedia Desktop Dock vs. Smart Dock

    Help - what is the true difference between these two devices besides $50. And which one would you get and why?

    The Multimedia Dock gives you audio out and a charging connection. The Smartdock gives you HDMI and 3 USB ports so you can hook up a keyboard, mouse and ext. Hard drive.

    If you register your device with Samsung, they will email you a 50% off coupon reducing the smart dock to 50.00, along with whatever else you fancy with their name on it-

    Very nice! Thanks!

    I would love to have something like motorola had with the lap dock, but with a 5.5 screen, the smart dock might just work enough.

    Has anyone been able to order a Smart Dock from samsung.com? I've been attempting to order one several times daily since November 6 but it's always "out of stock."

    So for those of you buying the smart dock, are you going to be buying a laptop/mouse to use with it as a computer?

    I've been looking around for laptops with mousepads/trackballs in them, but dont really want a full size keyboard, or a mini one either. Would like tofind one in the middle. One where you can key with all fingers, not just thumbs, but small enough to be portable.

    They sent me an email saying my backorder product was now available, but when I went to check out I changed my mind and decided to buy something else instead.

    I don't. I plan to use flash drives. I really need a Smart Dock now!

    @DAS:
    Was it a Smart Dock you had initially planned to purchase that samsung emailed you was in stock?

    @ ItsaRaid:
    I called a couple weeks ago and got the same answer you did.

    Yes, I added the smart dock to the cart, then had to be away from my puter for a few minutes; when I returned, the smart dock was no longer available.
