The combination of Webtop 2.0 and the Lapdock 500 Pro has turned Motorola smartphones into much more capable PC-replacements than the first Motorola Atrix smartphone and the original Lapdock. Here's a comprehensive look at the improved Lapdock and screenshots of Web 2.0 software. The new Lapdock also gets the price right. While the original Lapdock cost $499, the street price of the Lapdock 500 Pro is $249 and there are even specials where you can get it as low as $149 when purchased with a smartphone.

Here's a look at the Firefox browser running in Webtop. Fortunately, with smartphones that have stronger multicore processors and the performance improvements in the Webtop 2.0 software, the browsing experience in Webtop 2.0 is much faster and more fluid than the original version.
