See Motorola’s ATRIX 4G Smartphone Double As a Connected TV Device

As you’re all already aware, smartphones are getting smarter and more powerful by the day. At CES 2011 Motorola demonstrated their upcoming ATRIX 4G smartphone, running Android, that got people talking about its ability to be docked into a netbook-like peripheral and power a custom webtop interface — all while still providing a separate screen for the user to interact with the mobile UI. Seriously, it’s wild! However, there’s another trick up its sleeve that will impress Connected TV enthusiasts. The Motorola ATRIX 4G has a TV dock (nothing too new there) that can — get this — display a TV optimized UI or the webtop interface for a full computing experience. The TV UI can be controlled with the dock’s bundled wireless remote, but the webtop can be operated via touch or ideally with a paired Bluetooth keyboard. Whichever route one decides to take, ATRIX 4G can handily pump out 720p and 1080p video via its dual-core Tegra 2 processor.
