Switch on to Motorola’s manic modularity with the MOTOACTV

At the time when the newly sovereign Motorola Mobility announced its Atrix phone on the AT&T carrier at CES, the Smart Phone was received with good critics. But what was drawing more attention was the collection of accessories Motorola was supporting for its Smart Phones like the Astrix, Droid Bionic and Photon.
All these devices now come with car dock for navigation purpose, an HDMI clock for fun purpose and a lapdock for superior productivity. However the HDMI clock was not introduced first by the Moto guys as even the Asus Padfone had it that entrenched a phone more easily onto other compatible devices than the current Motorola devices do. Mixing all together the Motorola dock races the first in phones as the core of current mobile lifestyle, the one that can be simply shifted so that it can come out of the limitations from its natural form factor. It’s a perfect push for the other phone companies that still haven’t entered into the different similar devices like the televisions or computers.
When Motorola announced the Droid RAZR, they jumped back to originality – thinness and basic integrity of its once highly famous phone. It is too obvious that today’s Smart Phones are incomparably advanced than the flip phone when it comes to software and hardware sophistication. And with the new generation accessories Motorola has come up with, it shows that even the highly advanced Smart Phones also have limitations to their intelligence. At the time when the Moto guys announced the Droid RAZR, they announced one more gadget – MOTOACTV, a wearable display that is not only advanced with the fitness than the activity monitors but also performs as remote user interface for music control, notifications, somewhat similar the disastrous LiveView watch by Sony Ericsson.
This is not the only magic the MOTOACTIV can play though. It has a square screened device that works via Bluetooth to two earphone sets that not just plays music but even helps measures your heartbeat, thanks to its sensors.
With the trio of Smart Phone, MOTOACTIV and Bluetooth headphone, Motorola is trying to market its first ever genuine special area network for consumers. The tech firm who began by build a building by molecules thru its Smart Phones, now is trying to break atoms with both smaller and larger accessories like the MOTOACTV wrist strap, bike mount and armband. All of them make what we call a sophisticated contemporary Smart Phone. But when it comes to the HDMI dock or lapdock it’s a display and in the case of headphones that monitors heartbeats and taking about the MOTOACTV the peripheral screen, it’s the sensors and size.
At the time when MOTOACTIV was launched, Motorola didn’t commit whether it will open the device to a third party developer. However there are many companies using Android, who intend to create a watch sized gadget with a variety of brands. The quest is a long one still has many miles left, but from what Motorola has to demonstrate, it clearly states that the todays phone software is now so intertwined in peoples lives that it difficult to be one just one single device.
