Multimedia Dock for the Atrix 4G May Cost only $60?

Since CES, we’ve seen a lot talk about the multimedia dock for the Atrix 4G by Motorola. For those unfamiliar, the dock will allow you to connect your phone to your TV and stream audio and video over the 4G network to your TV via your phone. It’s been widely theorized that the dock would cost somewhere in the $150 neighborhood, and frankly — that seemed believable. But as it turns out, there may be reason to suspect that it will be way more reasonable. Mobile accessory web-retailer Frommy has a page offering it for $59.95. They have none in stock at the moment, but the fact that the page is live is a promising development.

In addition to just serving as a dock for your phone, it appears to also have HDMI and USB input ports as well. This will allow you to connect your computer to the phone while it’s docked and sync your data or transfer files. All phone functions still work fully while it’s docked, and the multimedia dock will also charge your phone. It looks like a great accessory for anyone looking to pick up the Atrix, which should be out by the end of next month.

    I think some info has been misread. The Laptop Dock IS believed to be around $150. The Multimedia Dock has been expected at around $50-$60. Also, the standard charging/desk dock has been guessed at $40 and the car dock somewhere around $30-$40. The Multimedia hasn’t been rumored at the $150 range from what I’ve seen.
