"Motorola just dropped possibly the most impressive press conference of CES yet right on us, but they did one better by opening up their line of new Android handsets for some hands-on time with the writhing masses. Of course we snapped up some video for your viewing pleasure - which will follow below - but what about the Atrix 4G?"
Wow... I mean really... WOW. This is somewhere slightly beyond pretty freakin sweet. When I first heard about the Atrix 4G's desktop dock and webtop dock I thought that was pretty cool. Then I heard that once you dock it you will get access to the full desktop version of Firefox running the full version of Flash. Woah... I wondered exactly how that worked. Well now I know. Docking the Atrix seems to launch some sort of Linux environment where you can run the full version of Firefox. Extremely awesome!
Now, why this is some custom Linux environment running Firefox versus Chrome or better yet just Chrome OS we may never know. I also wonder if Firefox is upgradeable or are you stuck with what every security holes exist in the version your phone ships with? What ever the case this may be the most exciting thing to happen to Android in a long time. I absolutely hate carrier phones but I will be keeping my eye on this one.
