Motorola just dropped possibly the most impressive press conference of CES yet right on us, but they did one better by opening up their line of new Android handsets for some hands-on time with the writhing masses. Of course we snapped up some video for your viewing pleasure — which will follow below — but what about the Atrix 4G?

In one word: impressive. The Atrix 4G does something unexpected but so obvious by allowing the handset to dock and instantly transform into a near desktop-like experience thanks to a newly-crafted Linux interface. You still get access to your Android interface in a separate video, too, as you will see. While the ability to dock and transform your phone into a personal computing platform is awesome in its own right, don’t even get me started on the blazing dual-core processor couple with 1GB of RAM. I get the feeling the similarly specced Droid Bionic might get some of the same docking functionality, but Moto seems happy to keep their lips tight to give AT&T a bit of a handicap. They will need it, as the Bionic features most of the same blazing specs with the addition of 4G LTE, unlike AT&T’s “4G” HSPA+. But enough rambling, hit it below for the video.
