accessory pricing insanity


Feb 20, 2011, 8:33 AM
$300 (bundled) or $500 (unbundled) for a keyboard and display? I can buy a full up netbook with equivalent display for $250 and have a much more capable device. if I'm going to haul along a laptop sized device, I might as well have a full pc.

not to mention the unbelievable oversight of not putting the phone dock where the touchpad is.

$140 for a powered USB hub and HDMI passthrough? I can buy the hub for $5 and the passthrough is unnecessary

$40 for a hunk of plastic to charge my phone on?


if they priced the netbook dock @ 200, multimedia dock at 40 and the charging dock at 20, then I'd be all over them, but at the current pricing I am certainly not going to buy them. I'll wait for third party docks and skip th...

I'd have to agree that $300 for the mobile laptop is out of line. Plus you are required to pay for the tethering service at $45/month.

I could see some value or the HDMI hub if I decide to connect this thing up to a screen, mouse and keyboard. It would be nice to just place the Atrix in the cradle and have everything connected. $140 seems pretty step for this limited functionality though - I'd probably just get a hub and then plug everything in seperately.

It'll be interesting to see how many people are willing to pay the price that Motorola is asking for. Probably mostly only business people.

The Atrix is most definetly the King of smartphones for right now.

It's a damn shame smartphones are useless on AT&T cause people have to pay to use more than a measly 2GB's.

My billing cycle isn't over until the 23rd, and I have already used almost 2gigs.

Get wifi at home and you can use your phone all you want at home.
