A mobile phone doubling up as a laptop is being hailed as the gadget that could challenge iPad’s supremacy.

The Motorola Atrix phone can be turned into a proper laptop by attaching a screen and keyboard, both of which have to be bought separately.

Since it debuted at technology fairs earlier this year that it has been dubbed a “laptop killer”, the Daily Mail reports.

“It is more of an evolution than a revolution. The Atrix can really reshape how we think about mobile phones. It’s powerful and versatile, and showed that you can do something different with a mobile phone,” said Luke Peters, editor, T3, a technology magazine.

“It is also a warning to Apple that mobile phones like the Atrix that run Google’s Android are really making a big impact.”
