Gartner research director Michael Gartenberg hs been playing around with the Motorola Atrix 4G smart phone and the related docks. Will noting some of the limitations and overpriced accessories, Gartenberg had the same vision as TOV, it seems:
That said, the Atrix pushes the envelope for what a mobile device can be, and the modular integration is nothing short of a breakthrough that I expect to be replicated and evolved over time. The ability to use one device and having to manage only one device is quite appealing, and I expect that we'll see more of this type of implementation in the weeks and months ahead. The benefits to users and IT folk are quite clear. If you want to see the future of how personal computing might evolve, just put a Mototrola Atrix in your pocket.
