      Excellent Project. Best of Luck with funding _ From the Firstandlexington.com team and crew.

    2. Creator Mark Solomon on July 9, 2012

      Thank you to Charles, Dean, Adam, Mike and everyone else for your support and encouragement. Don't worry - lack of Kickstarter success will not stop us. We believe we have a fantastic product and we'll continue to explore and push. Thanks again!

    3. Creator Charles A. on July 9, 2012

      @Mark - I applaud your product and efforts; I hope you can secure funding somehow to bring your idea to market. I believe Apple’s pending hardware change more than anything impacted this project.

      wow what a let down, i personally think this is the best project on here.. such a shame

    5. Creator Adam Wen on July 5, 2012

      Well, Hopefully if they came out with the App, it goes viral, we might have a fighting chance. :)

    6. Creator Mike Reid on July 4, 2012

      I really wish this product had gone viral, it is one of the best docking systems I have ever seen. Very disappointed that Moboto may not get funded. Please keep the 297 of us up to date if another form of funding happens for you.

    7. Creator Dean Wilder on July 3, 2012

      It is a shame as it looks like a great product.. Just such a high goal.

    8. Creator Curtis Reinholdt on July 3, 2012

      damn i highly doubt thisll get funded

    9. Creator Rich Wiatrowski @weaponlordzero on June 30, 2012

      This is an awesome device! how the heck is it not funded?!?!?

    10. Creator Dean Wilder on June 28, 2012

      didnt stop me from picking the biggie smalls option :).. looks so smart just hope a massive boost happens.

    11. Creator Mark Solomon on June 28, 2012

      @ Celina - thank you!

    12. Creator Dean Wilder on June 27, 2012

      Pledge goal is far too high... it will not be reached unless you get very lucky with a viral campaign..

    13. Creator Celina Z on June 26, 2012

      21 days left, little bit surprised only 286 backers...really love this little thing and hope we can reach that goal. I want mine in NOV!!

    14. Creator Nicholas Johannes on June 24, 2012

      The pledge goal is really high, hopefully you guys are successful! It'd be a shame for this project to not succeed.

    15. Creator Ian Stearns on June 22, 2012

      @Mark Solomon - Thanks for the quick reply and info

    16. Creator Mark Solomon on June 22, 2012

      @ Ian and Brian: Thank for checking us out. You can do Smalls (Moboto phone) in black. We currently do not have Biggie (Moboto iPad) in black. Cheers.

    17. Creator Ian Stearns on June 21, 2012

      Came across your Kickstarter campaign from Gizmodiva blog and I love this idea. Keep up with gear/gadget/nerd blog advertisements. That will help bring us closer to the $400,000 goal, if for any reason the goal isn't met this time I would pledge again if a new date is submitted.

      I have to agree with Brian Meskill's comment "I've chosen the Biggie and Smalls reward, but I was wondering if there a way to get at least one of them in black?" Or possibly both in black

    21. Creator Ton Kalker on June 8, 2012

      Mark, congrats on this, it looks positively sizzling. I'm a backer and can't wait to get mine! :) Way To Go!!!!

    28. Creator J. Paul Logan Glendinning on June 8, 2012

      Bought in on the Early Bird, can't wait to see this project take off. I would love to see any of the following:
      Black & White Pack: Limited Early Bird Price
      Double Pack: Early Bird
      I would buy more than one, but who can resist a deal?

    29. Creator Jake Dempsey on June 7, 2012

      I am all in... Just remember me when you get huge!

    30. Creator Jeremiah James Jameson on June 7, 2012

      That's awesome!! Confused on why some people have already donated $50 when the $35 is the exact same! Silly people!

    31. Creator Brad Hodson on June 7, 2012

      Best iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch dock I've ever seen. Can't wait to get mine (and more)!
