Motorola Puts a Fork in Webtop and the Lapdock
Motorola has confirmed that it will no longer develop Webtop software for its Android smartphones, nor will it continue to develop and sell the lapdock accessory. In a statement provided to CNET, Motorola said, "While consumers around the world have adopted Webtop and the concept spurred a lot of innovation in the industry, the adoption has not been strong enough to justify continued resources being allocated to developing Webtop on future devices. We have also seen development of the Android operating system focus on the inclusion of more desktoplike features." Motorola said that the Photon Q, Razr M, Razr HD, Razr Maxx HD, and all new devices moving forward will not include Webtop. The Motorola Atrix HD, which shipped in July, is also lacking Webtop. The software, when paired with the lapdock, extended the smartphone's display and apps onto a 13-inch display and keyboard.
