First Ever Demo- Motorola Atrix 4? Phone To 20? Desktop to… 24? iMac Listen to this article


Francis and I got to spend some intimate time with Motorola’s Xoom powerhouse tablet and Atrix smartphone and we came away impressed. Toward the end of the demo we asked for a chance to try something new; we asked to take over the Atrix while it was connected to a 20″ monitor, keyboard and mouse and use it, in conjunction with LogMeIn, to take over my 24″ iMac in New Jersey. The result… The smartphone took over and controlled my Mac seamlessly. We asked if anyone else had done this, and were told this was, at least in their experience, a first.

That’s right, the new Motorola Atrix is a 24″ iMac in your pocket; here’s the video.
