Breakthrough device of CES: Motorola Atrix = Phone + PC | Tech Sanity Check | TechRepublic.com

An intriguing mobile device market reality check

I had no idea how that we were so close to this idea becoming a reality.

I certainly didn’t expect to see it at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. So, you can imagine my surprise when at Motorola’s press conference on Wednesday, the company trotted out the Atrix 4G (above), a new dual core smartphone that contains an extra surprise: a piece of “Webtop” software that allows it to function like a full PC when connected in one of three docking modes:

  1. Desktop PC mode with keyboard, mouse, and display
  2. TV mode with a remote
  3. Laptop mode, with a special laptop-like dock

[…]

The two photos below provide a look at the Atrix in its two PC docking modes as well as a peek at the Webtop UI. In the second photo, notice the phone window on the left that has the Atrix home screen.
