Mobile phone doubling up as laptop could dethrone iPad

Friday April 01, 2011 05:22:52 PM, IANS

London: A mobile phone doubling up as a laptop is being hailed as the gadget that could end iPad's supremacy in the market.

The Motorola Atrix phone can be turned into a proper laptop by attaching a screen and keyboard, both of which have to be bought separately.

It has so impressed gadget experts since it debuted at technology fairs earlier this year that it has been dubbed a 'laptop killer', the Daily Mail reports.

Technology magazine T3 has even snubbed the iPad 2 - Apple's latest version of its tablet device - to hand the Atrix the 'hottest gadget' accolade.

T3 editor Luke Peters said: "This wasn't about products that have been hyped, but about products that really disrupt the market. We see the iPad 2 as more of an evolution than a revolution."

"The Atrix can really reshape how we think about mobile phones. It's incredibly powerful and versatile, and for us it really showed that you can do something different with a mobile phone."

"It is also a warning to Apple that mobile phones like the Atrix that run Google's Android software are really making a big impact."

Although the iPad came second in the poll, Apple still sold out the 399-pound gadget in many stores within three days, and is warning online buyers they face a wait of three to four weeks.
