Motorola Atrix dual-core Android smartphone
Docks and slots for all occasions
The Lapdock will set you back £300 though, the same as you’d pay for a cheap netbook, and as for the others: multimedia dock and remote (£76), keyboard, £75), standard dock (£33). Currently, Orange is throwing in a ‘Work and Play’ kit with keyboard (but not screen), multimedia dock, wireless mouse and remote for existing customers who upgrade to the Atrix.
Multimedia dock interfacing
Browsing is a breeze and fast too, both by 3G and Wi-Fi. In the standard Android browser pages render well, there’s support for Flash video and the pinch to zoom function makes navigation easy. The media player is a bit more than the standard Android model, with a few tweaks from Motorola, including options to search for related videos online, song ID and the ability to display lyrics where available.
Handset micro USB and docking connections
There’s also TuneWiki networking options to give you inspiration from what others are listening to and to share your tastes. The supplied headphones are surprisingly good quality too, but there’s no FM radio on board.
Syncing is achieved with Motorola’s iTunes-esque Media Link and while there’s 16GB of onboard storage and you can boost this by a further 32GB with a microSD card.
