Motorola Atrix 4G: Ideal for Business Travelers

by Reads (6,364)

Everyone would like their vacation to be a complete escape from work, but that’s often only a dream. In the real world, most people have to check in with the office every now and then, even if they at the beach, and maybe even deal with a crisis or two if it arises. 

A smartphone can be ideal for this, as it gives you access  to your email without the hassle of totting a laptop around, which can be quite a hassle if your vacation involves going on the road, and frequently changing hotels.

For travelers who want to simplify their life a bit, there’s an interesting solution: the Motorola Atrix 4G is both a smartphone and a laptop.

The handset itself has a cutting-edge feature set, starting with Google’s Android OS running on a NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, plus there’s a 960 x 540 qHD Touchscreen and a fingerprint scanner.

When it’s plugged in to this accessory, the Atrix 4G switches to a version of Linux that offers a full desktop version of the Firefox web browser, while also still providing all the features of the Android OS.

The Atrix 4G brings some flexibility for travelers. On trips when they know they aren’t going to need to do much work, they can just take the handset. During times they need to get more accomplished, they can add the laptop dock to their luggage.

Naturally, Brighthand has a full review of the Motorola Atrix 4G, as well as a separate one that concentrates on the laptop dock.

This handset is available exclusively from AT&T. It sells for $100 with a two-year contract — an amazing low price, given its feature set.
