Motorola Atrix 4G Dock Hands On (Video)

Trying to prove that devices like Folio from Palm and Redfly from Celio were the right idea at the wrong time, Motorola is rolling out a dock and netbook-like device for the Motorola Atrix 4G that will be sold on Verizon’s LTE 4G network in Q1. We’ve never seen any device do what the Atrix can, and we attribute that to its Tegra 2 dual-core CPU and plentiful 1GB of RAM. Not only can you access the phone through the dock or netbook device, effectively giving you a huge screen for your phone, but you can launch Firefox and do some serious web browsing, use a file browser, and more. It’s a really interesting concept that is executed quite well. We just wonder if Atrix 4G buyers will skip these accessories and just carry around their fully-functional laptop instead of this sort of half-functional netbook device or dock. What do you think?
