Motorola to ditch Webtop concept

Just as expected, Motorola is ditching Webtop. Motorola recently made a statement to CNET that it officially killed off its Webtop concept, which enabled Motorola smartphones to serve as the brains of a Lapdock or TV.

What You Need To Know:

  • The Webtop concept was first revealed in the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show. It featured its flagship phone, the Atrix 4G, to power a special laptop device called Lapdock.
  • Many believed that the feature would become Motorola’s competitive advantage in a tight smartphone market. However, the acceptance of the concept remains weak. Consumers were discouraged with the $500 price tag of the phone and the laptop dock.
  • Another criticism of the concept was its speed and substandard user experience.
