all you would need is the Atrix 4G phone, HDDock with hdmi cable. get a Bluetooth keyboard/trackpad/mouse...
Your all set my friend....
This is what I did. Pictures coming soon.
So i am doing some research here as well. The Motorola Atrix is a darn powerful dual core Android Device. With the HD dock that puts all the device functionality including HDMI, USB, audio etc out to any HDMI compatible system. It also creates USB inputs for keyboards and mouses back into the device.
We are at a point where dropping your phone into a dock and having it become the Car PC is practical!!!
I personally like to have all my info, music and setting be available on one device rather than two and the Atrix makes that possible. Being able to get in the car and put the atrix in a cradle and have it pop up on an LCD screen is IDEAL!
The only hurdle is being able to make a device driver for android that can accept the inputs of a 7" liliput LCD for example. Since the HD Dock already takes a keyboard and a mouse (really any mouse) what is missing. Where is the missing puzzle piece to allow the OS to see the LCD as if it were a mouse?
Any thoughts? Ideas?
yea but is touchscreen controll what we really need to develope here
My System (2005 Ford Explorer)
VIA EPIA MII 12000 Mini-ITX Mainboard
1 GB RAM
80 GB hdd
250 GB USB hdd
Storex USB DVD Rom/CDRW (not yet installed)
D-Link DWL-121 WiFi
OBDII Elm327 v1.2a (not yet installed)
I also have an atrix and am interested in this. wouldn't you simply be able to plug the usb for the touchscreen into the atrix hd dock? I figured it would come up as a mouse pad though and not necessarily as a true touchscreen.... there is a difference.
