I'm not a fan of AT&T's network but this new Moto smartphone with optional Laptop and Desktop-like docking stations as well as Home Media sharing dock with remote (and web-browsing, etc. using the phone screen as a touchpad) is pretty nifty. The phone itself is pretty impressive with a 1 GHz dual-core processor and 1G of DDR RAM, a 4.3 inch hi-res display, dual cameras, etc. A big question will be does AT&T lock it down (no 3rd party apps install, de-googlized, etc.) like they have other Android phones.

The DROID Bionic will match most of the specs and be on VZW but they haven't announced any plans to bring these same docks to that device.


One thing is for sure, Motorola Mobility is once again a real player in the market and have brought some truly innovative technology to CES this year!

I think I spent two hours in the motorola booth at ces. The atrix was the coolest thing I saw at the while show.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I can't imagine it only coming to AT&T, but it is the most intriguing tech item I've seen lately.
