Droid Bionic Accessories: Ones Are Worth the Money?

to use your new Droid Bionic in your car, at your connected to your TV, or as a laptop? has a dock for you. When I these accessories, however, some proved extremely just wasn’t up to snuff.

Navigation Dock ($40)

The vehicle navigation dock you mount your Bionic to the of your car for easy access. you pop the Bionic into the dock, the automatically launches into the app. Within the app, you can through three panels large, finger-friendly buttons for access to features such as contacts, music, and the Navigation

The dock will charge phone while you’re and it will also allow you to the Bionic to your car stereo via or a direct line so that you can to tunes through the car’s Although the Bionic car dock is to one that launched with the 4G. this dock won’t with any other Motorola The Bionic won’t work any of the previous car docks either, so if you to use it while you’re driving have to buy this latest The vehicle navigation dock is if you are on the road a lot or if you frequently use your for navigation. Its usefulness is definitely the price.

Standard Dock ($40)

standard desktop dock for the doesn’t add much functionality, it does turn the phone a makeshift alarm clock. you plug the Bionic into the a menu asks whether to Bedside mode or Productivity In Bedside mode, the Clock app and replaces the home screen; there you can set an alarm, check the and listen to music. (The comes with an extra cable, so you don’t have to about your phone out of juice in the middle of the night.) In mode, you get fast access to calendar as well as your the browser, and your email. As who is always checking a calendar for meetings, I could see the dock coming in handy in the office.

HD Station ($100)

The Bionic’s HD which hooks up to a monitor or TV HDMI, gives you access to a Firefox browser as well as the to run apps in full-screen view on a display. Some apps as Angry Birds look on the larger screen, but others from pixelation. Most of the videos I tried looked as well, though HD content a bit better. (The dock is in both form and function to the dock that launched the Photon 4G.)

The HD station has three USB ports, so you can in a keyboard and mouse for better and input on a bigger screen; it also charge your while the handset is docked. The HD makes for a great temporary because you can use the Bionic’s LTE connection browsing the Web—and since it with a remote, it’s for giving presentations or watching

Lapdock ($300)

The laptop turns your phone a very basic laptop. The itself has no computing power and is a monitor with a keyboard; the does all the heavy lifting, and is actually powers the entire While the phone is plugged in, you access to the same webtop that you get with the HD station. The interface is a modified version of that lets you access of the features on your phone, but on a screen.

The dock has its own battery, and charge the Bionic while the is plugged in. The dock cannot run off the battery, however, so you’ll to keep the dock charged. identical in almost every way to the laptop dock, this will work only the Bionic; as the connectors on the Bionic and are different, they cannot use any of the accessories.

Unfortunately, the laptop dock improved in any way since we first saw it the Atrix. The keyboard keys are the touchpad can be unresponsive, the screen has a viewing angle, and the webtop is slow overall. As with the HD you still have access to the and its LTE connection while it’s in the but at $300 the laptop dock isn’t worth the investment. is one idea that sounds in theory but falls apart in You’re better off carrying a separate laptop or (if you are particularly in the webtop interface) buying the HD instead.
