    You have all heard how Motorola's Atrix is unique in having all these docking stations and a Webtop app that collectively turn it into a far more versatile computer than your average superpowered smartphone? Well, Sanjay Jha has just told investors at a Morgan Stanley conference that the Atrix won't be unique for long -- the Webtop app will be making an appearance on all of Moto's "high performance" smartphones in the second half of this year. Attendee's were told that the only reason the Droid Bionic won't be shipping with it was the simple constraint of time.

    What that implies, but something Jha didn't say, is that the Bionic and Moto's other forthcoming devices are likely to have laptop docks of their own -- hopefully with a connector that makes the docking accessory interchangeable between models.

    We have heard this previously through credible sources but no other details were revealed. The Bionic will have to be fitted with more RAM to run the WebTop App so lets see how this all plays out.

    The Bionic just got more attractive wouldn't you say?

    High End?

    Is there a compiled list of what Moto considers "High End" smartphones? I'm currently using a DROID 2 Global. It sure does a lot of cool stuff that my D1 didn't do.
    Thanks!

    This is such an awesome idea. But to make it even awesome-er I'd like stock android and instead of webtop chrome os. How 'bout it google? I'd be all over that. I'm interested in webtop though. Just wish it wasn't firefox. Or at least give a choice of chrome. I'm willing to give it a chance though.

    I really am looking forward to my next phone. I just hope Moto doesn't loose focus on doing well with hardware quality.

    Wow, that alone makes me rethink the 'no moto for me' situation. I'm unhappy only because of locked/encrypted bootloaders. But the laptop dock is pretty damn nice. I could see myself definitely using that. More and more often I find myself using my phone for basic computing tasks and have even paired my bluetooth keyboard at home to it so I can type e-mails much easier.

    I won't find this a point of interest until technology makes this a viable replacement for laptops in battery life and computing power. Just a gimmick until then.

    Me personally I do not care about the Laptop Dock... Just a car Dock and the Desktop Dock.

    It's for devices that will be announced/released in the second half of the year. Already released devices (and possibly already announced devices - Bionic included) will not receive it.

    What is the advantage of these docs vs just connecting a screen via hdmi and a keyboard via bt?

    my same response.

    The laptop dock is neat, but useless IMO.

    I hope they don't put it on 'ALL' high end models... it's an option a lot of us could care less about and will never use.

    Try to contain your enthusiasm - full desktop Firefox browser.

    Perhaps their marketing pitch for this can be "bringing more flash player crashes to your smartphone". Seriously, I haven't been able to figure out what's causing it but I get a ton of crashes on Firefox and Thunderbird now, and they've really increased the last few months.
