Motorola Atrix HD Doesn't Support WebTop or Lapdock

The Motorola Atrix HD does not ship with Motorola's WebTop software and will not support Motorola's lapdock accessory. Motorola explained to Phone Scoop in an email that WebTop was excluded in order to help meet the retail price of $99 being charged by AT&T. The company "focused on the features that will deliver the greatest value for this device’s target audience," said a Motorola spokesperson.Â "Motorola Atrix HD was designed for people who get excited about new technology that is relevant to their lifestyle, but are also price conscious. So we’re offering the experiences and software that this target would be most interested in and still be able to make it affordable." WebTop together with the lapdock allow certain Motorola smartphones to act like a web-connected laptop, with a full Firefox browser and access to all the apps, media and features offered by the phone itself.
Motorola's third attempt at the Atrix brings the charms of a ColorBurst high-def display, LTE 4G, and a powerful 8-megapixel camera to the table. Is the Atrix HD lacking anything, or does it have it all?

Does anyone, ever think Motorola has *ever* enough foresight to work this kind of long-term platform?
