Motorola Atrix 4G, Droid Bionic Smartphones, Toshiba Tablet Impress at CES

??ÃMotorola Mobility CEO Sanjay Jha chats with Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg and Verizon President Lowell McAdam as Time Warner CEO Jeffrey Bewkes looks on. This motley crew has reason to be excited about Android.
??ÃThe Atrix 4G has a gorgeous 4-inch qHD screen. It will launch on AT&T in the first quarter of this year, runs Android 2.2 and is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core chip.
??ÃBut there's more than meets the eye. Motorola is offering laptop and desktop docking stations. You can see the dock port behind the laptop here.
??ÃThe kindly Motorola official helped us get a closer look at the dock, which will be sold separately at prices to be determined later here.
??ÃThe docking capabilities allow users to make their content accessible on larger screens via Motorola's Webtop application, which runs a full Mozilla Firefox 3.6 browser.
??ÃThe Droid Bionic boasts a 4.3-inch screen, as well as the qHD screen Motorola is touting. While the device lacks the newfangled docking capabilities of the Atrix 4G, it has an 8-megapixel camera, as well as HDMI connectivity to let users view video and games on large-screen HD televisions.
??ÃJha was adamant that the Droid Bionic means "the end of waiting" for data and applications to render on smartphones. That's because the Bionic, like the Atrix 4G, sports a dual-core processor for speedier processing.
Motorola Cliq 2
??ÃA sort of -me too announcement in the wake of the Atrix 4G and Droid Bionic, the Motorola Cliq 2 is coming to T-Mobile Jan. 19.
??ÃThis WiFi-only, 10.1-inch screen, Android 3.0 Toshiba tablet was encased in glass to hide its secretive functions. Seriously, it's not ready for prime time yet. It does have resolution-plus technology, converting standard resolution content into HD quality.
Mystery Tablet Features
??ÃLike the Motorola Xoom, the Toshiba model has a 5- megapixel back camera, while the front is 2 MP. Expect it to compete with Xoom this spring. A key perk of the Toshiba tablet is the easily swappable battery. There will be a 16 GB and 32 GB version of this device, which lacks a proper name.
