If you were out considering the Motorola Atrix 4G and had a chance to check out the laptop dock in-store and subsequently purchased it, you will find that the demo units are mysteriously more capable than the product consumers are taking home. Numerous people are reporting that while checking out the laptop dock demo they very clearly had working multitouch scrolling capabilities, something that almost seems standard for a netbook style device heavily featuring a desktop build of Firefox. Compare that to the actual laptop dock, which doesn’t feature the capability.

According to Motorola, it won’t ever feature multitouch scrolling, either. So don’t go hoping for a firmware update to address this. Based on this we have to assume the demo units either feature different hardware or run a version of multitouch Moto didn’t feel fit for the end user. Just a wee bit disappoint, I should say.
