Android 5.0 Jelly Bean could include WebTop-style desktop mode

And now, let us commence months of speculation on Android 5.0! Just a week after suppliers claimed that Android 5.0 "Jelly Bean" (which, by the way, has not been confirmed as a code name) would be popping up this summer, Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin claims that Google will be including a dockable desktop mode in the next version of Android. That's not too far from a reality right now - most Android phones can output their video via HDMI in some form, and Motorola's high-end phones can connect to LapDocks to use the packaged WebTop OS. But instead of a completely different OS, Android would simply adjust its user interface for desktop mode.

Motorola: more Lapdock-style devices coming in 2012

While we and just about everybody else was floored at the potential of Motorola's Lapdock when it was introduced with the Atrix 4G, the reality of its utility has proven somewhat underwhelming. Even when the Atrix 2 brought us a semi-universal model in the Lapdock 100, the laptop/smartphone combination still felt a little cuimbersome, and hard to justify given the extra cost it requires. It appears that Motorola isn't discouraged, however: in an interview with AllThingsD, executive Christy Wyatt said the company plans more multi-screen intiatives in the coming year.

LightPad: a pico projector for Android with big ideas

As neat an idea as they seemed, Motorola's various Lapdocks haven't amounted to much. The principle's is sound, but if you're going to carry around an accessory that's as big as a laptop, as heavy as a laptop, and almost as expensive as a laptop, why not just carry a real freaking laptop? Startup company QP Optoelectronics intends to change the equation, by giving you an 11" screen, full keyboard AND up to a 60" projector, all in a package about the size of a few magazines.They're calling their flagship product the LightPad.

Motorola Lapdock 500 clears the FCC, spotted with the DROID RAZR

We've seen plenty about Motorola's Lapdock offerings but until the recently released Lapdock 100 they were proprietary and only worked with a single device. The new Lapdock 100 and 500 will be universal and will work across all future top end Android devices from Motorola. We showed you a little about the Lapdock 100 during our Atrix 2 review but today its bigger brother the 500 has cleared the FCC and is on its way to store shelves soon.

Motorola ATRIX 2 Review [Video]

Motorola's ATRIX 2 is a modest update to one of the most exciting smartphones to hit AT&T's network this year. It seems a little soon for the ATRIX to get a sequel, especially since the original is still available - at the same $99 price point, no less.
