We were lucky enough to get our hands on Motorola's much-touted Atrix 4G phone with the accompanying laptop accessory. You can dock this phone with an HD display, mouse, and keyboard, or you can use the laptop dock. By doing so, you immediately turn your smartphone into a laptop. The OS uses a "Mobile view" to display the phones' onscreen functions, but you can also use an Apple-style quick-launch bar at the bottom of the laptop dock to access other applications and functions.
We'll have more thoughts later this week, but for now, here
-The phone definitely takes a back seat to the laptop dock/chassis. It's Macbook thin, and we like the sleek black matte body. It's heavier than it looks, weighing about 3 pounds.
-It's cool, and the laptop screen looks great. We plugged the Atrix into the dock behind the phone, opened the laptop dock up, and we were typing on the keyboard and using the mousepad like any other laptop.
-In non-docked mode, the phone is fast. In docked mode, however, we were surprised by how pokey this thing runs.
-We're puzzled as to why a Google OS device would use Firefox as its primary browser as opposed to Chrome. Very strange.
