Qs on the HD dock
1. How much?
2. All cables included or the HDMI cable purchased separately?
3. What apps and services can you have with the HD dock and Webtop other than pics, videos and music on the phone?
4. If I only use them with WiFi, do I must still upgrade to the $45 plan?
Thanks in advance.

If you mean the multimedia dock, on the ATT site it's 130 purchased separately.
I'm not sure if a HDMI cable comes with the multimedia dock. I just received my phone and multimedia dock. The HDMI cable was in the box with the phone. There is a charger and a remote in the box with the multimedia dock. I haven't gotten a chance to play with the dock yet, but as far as I know, the Webtop application allows you to use a full size Firefox browser and any apps on the phone in the phone view.
Also it is my understanding that yes you can use it on Wifi only if you do not upgrade to the $45 tethering plan. I kept my grandfathered in unlimited plan when I ordered. There may be ways around this with rooting that others know more about.

To the other Manny, as far as connecting a portable hard drive to the HD mutlimedia dock, I really doubt that would work. I haven't read that they have support for that anywhere, and I'd be a little afraid to even try it. As far as I know, the only external memory the phone supports are the microSD cards up to 32 GB as advertised.

Direct from Motorola it's 99.99
From Amazon its 89.99 (preorder)

I'm definitely going to get this soonish. The WebTop OS feature is really cool when it's been decoupled from the crazy expensive laptop dock. And it looks like the price is dropping like a rock. I'm hoping to get it for ~50.
