Yes, Asus may have taken the thing to the next level, but the Lapdock was nonetheless one of the best things Motorola came up with in 2011, and now it's promising to keep the concept going in 2012.
The add-on for the Android powerhouse is essentially a slave netbook: slot your Atrix in and it'll automatically reinterpret its smartphone ways into laptop form. A high price and narrow compatibility held the Lapdock back from being a hands-down success, however, but Motorola isn't ready to throw in the towel just yet.
Speaking to AllThingsD, Moto exec Christy Wyatt said it was a “very bold move” to introduce the Lapdock, but promised “I do think you are going to see us continue to go down that path”.
She didn't go into details, but given that the arrival of the Atrix 2 also saw a more universal Lapdock 100 touching down, and Motorola has also recently introduced the MotoACTV fitness accessory thingy, it looks like it's into this accessory business for the long haul.
