A lot of people were blown away by the cool docking ability and webtop app that the Moto Atrix is coming with on the AT&T network, and rightfully so.

Let the image above sink in some. If you don’t yet own a Xoom (like me), then you can begin to be envious of the sheer power that owners of the latest Android device have in their grubby little hands.
