Motorola giving up on Webtops already!

Motorola has officially revealed that they are no longer working on newer Webtop accessories for their smartphones.

The company launched their first Webtop model along with the Atrix smartphone.

Webtop was essentially a laptop like docking station powered by the phone. Users could get access to a larger display and a keyboard to work on the move.

The idea was to provide an alternative to a laptop to surf the web and other activities on the move.

But the product was expensive and required specific models from the company ensuring that it never became popular.

The company said:

Motorola’s Webtop app helps users extend their smartphone experience to larger screens. While consumers around the world have adopted Webtop and the concept spurred a lot of innovation in the industry, the adoption has not been strong enough to justify continued resources being allocated to developing Webtop on future devices. We have also seen development of the Android operating system focus on the inclusion of more desktoplike features. Beginning with Photon Q and Droid Razr M/Droid Razr HD/Droid Razr Maxx HD, we will no longer be including Webtop on our products moving forward.
