Along with the Motorola Xoom Wifi, I picked up the standard dock for it as well. The dock itself is a heavy little thing, which gives it plenty of stability when you are touching your tablet while docked. The Motorola Standard Dock comes with an adapter for gel case users, and a power supply. The power supply is the same proprietary adapter that the Xoom uses (no surprises there I guess) but still made me disappointed once again that the device is not powered by mini-usb. The tablet light sensor lines up nicely with a dot on the dock so you can easily get it into position. Also included is a standard jack to route your audio into a better sound system without fuss when docked.
I like the dock overall, but here is the list:
- Sturdy, heavy duty feel
- Sound routed to external system works great
- Charges unit
- Stays “dim-lit” so you can see your desktop/apps when not in use
- Makes for a great living room end table slide show dock
- If you are a developer and think this thing will have a mini-usb pass through so you can develop and debug while docked, think again.
- The viewing angle while docked, to me, seems a bit steep
- MSRP is $50 – are you kidding me? You can find it cheaper, but still…
So there you go, aside from a few complaints this thing is a solid addition to the Xoom. I’m guessing a nice Bluetooth keyboard would make this thing a pretty handy travelling PC.
