Techstination feature for Friday, April 22, 2011

Motorola’s innovative approach to smartphone docking.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Motorola’s Atrix phone from AT&T is a solid, fast and powerful Android phone on its own.     But pair it with the add on laptop dock created by Motorola, and it adds a whole new dimension.   It’s cool looking and works surprisingly well.   Motorola Mobility VP and chief software engineer Seang Chau…

Having just your smartphone isn’t enough.   You see most people sitting with their laptops.  Sometimes you need a full keyboard, mouse and a much larger display.   But you also want to be fully connected to the Internet regardless of whether WiFi  is there or not.  So we built this thing, this lap dock to use with your Atrix, so you wouldn’t have to buy and manage another laptop, another netbook, notebook computer or any of that.”

And the plan is to make similar docks available for more Android smartphones down the road.    You can find us with archives, interviews and more at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
