Game Changer: Motorola Atrix 4G Android smartphone with laptop dock

Motorola today at CES unveiled the AT&T bound Atrix 4G Android smartphone. This device packs in a 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor with 1GB of RAM. The massive 4-inch display will be a QHD 24-bit capacitive touchscreen, giving Apple’s Retina Display a run for its money. It’ll host Android 2.2 with MOTOBLUR and Flash Player 10.1. I know what you’re thinking, AT&T doesn’t have 4G, and that’s correct they don’t; so it will use the HSPA+ network until around 2013 when true 4G is unleashed. You can expect the Atrix 4G to surface in the first half of 2011, with another 20 or so 4G LTE smartphones coming out of the AT&T stables this year.

Not just another Android phone. What makes the Motorola Atrix 4G a little different than all the rest is their customized docks. Motorola designed three docks for the Atrix, but most notably is the laptop dock with 11.6-inch LCD display. You’re not going to be running photoshop or anything like that, but the “Webtop” dock will give you a big display to view your Android handset on as well as adding a fully tabbed FireFox browsing experience (Flash included). The other docks are a Multimedia dock for 720p HD playback and a Vehicle dock for seamless Google map navigation and multimedia playback.

No price is set on the Atrix 4G, nor are any release dates for the docks. It’s going to be interesting to see how the laptop dock performs with Android, we’ll do our best to get some hands-on time with the Atrix at CES.
