3. Motorola Atrix 2
I called the Motorola Atrix "groundbreaking" when it was released in April. That was mostly due to its ability to dock into a laptop or desktop experience with the help of Motorola's Webtop software. Motorola has now extended Webtop to several more smartphones, and six months after releasing the first Atrix, Motorola has upgraded the product with faster internals, a newer version of Android (2.3), and a better camera. The device is sized perfectly (not oversized like the Razr) and feels sturdy and comfortable in your hand. With its docking capability and overall versatility, it's an especially good choice for professionals.
