Motorola Showcases Atrix Smartphone/PC Hybrid At CES

Motorola has revealed its Atrix smartphone at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, which is powerful enough to power a PC and a laptop.

The Atrix comes loaded with both Google's Android 2.2 Froyo operating system, as well as a new Linux-based operating system designed by Motorola, which helps the device to transform into a PC.

The Linux OS, however, offers only three apps: a Firefox web browser that supports Flash, a file manager and Android-in-a-window.

The handset also comes with a number of docks, which allow it to attach to a desktop monitor and keyboard for a full blown PC experience, or alternatively to a laptop.

The smartphone packs a powerful dual-core Cortex-A9, a NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor along with wireless support for both 3G and 4G networks. The device also has a 1 GB RAM, 16 GB of in-built memory, a memory card slot and a finger print reader.
