I was just listening to your recent podcast where you discuss the Motorola Atrix docks. I think you miss the key point of a dock from business point of view. If you have a dock then you can run a virtual desktop, such as Citrix Xen Desktop, on your phone. This means I can arrive at work, plug my phone into the dock and open up my Windows 7 virtual desktop. You would also be able to run any citrix published app such as MS Office, lotus notes if you didn’t require the full Windows 7 experience. I am hanging out for the Atrix with the multi-media dock. That laptop dock seems an interesting idea but it would be nicer if the phone slotted inside rather than hanging out the back rather awkwardly.

I’m thinking about buying a Motorola XOOM, but I don’t know if I should get the 3G version with the discount or wait for a Wi-Fi only version to come out. Is the 3G version come with a 2-Year Contract or Month to Month. Thanks in Advance. – Arthur
