    I don't like how the phone connects to the laptop dock, would be better if it stid inside or something.

    Other that that, all I have to say is: wow! :dribble:

    +1 on that - I'd be worried about knocking the device and damaging the connectors. Plus I'm cynical enough to wonder how much dinero Moto would be looking for to get this dock - under £100 would be a winner as far as I'm concerned. A phone that can double as a netbook is a neat idea imho.

    Just reading the review on CNetUK http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/mobile-pho...view-50002122/ and it looks like a very impressive device to me - certainly far better than the Sony Ericsson Arc which was also at CES.

    I don't think you guys need to worry about the dock...



    I'm not due for an upgrade for at least another 18 months. So I'll be keeping an eye out for the Atrix successor.

    Like I said, I'd be more worried about kids/dog hitting the back and damaging the connector. Can't help thinking that being able to slot the phone into the dock (like an SD card into a reader) would have been visually "neater".

    I'm with you on that (and it's 18 months to go for me too). Maybe Motorola are finally getting into their stride - be nice to see someone giving HTC a run for their money... (I discount Samsung and Sony Ericsson because of poor software support).

    I wonder if Three would let me buy out my contract early...
