Hi, I would like to buy a new phone and since I want it to last for a while I want it to be state of the art! Since the Motorola Atrix is the only dual core phone available in the US, I have focussed on it. I read some reviews on it but unfortunately I have even more questions than before now. Hopefully you guys can help me to answer them. I know it's a lot of questions so I am happy if you comment on any of them! 1. Using the phone in Germany Given I have the phone unlocked(also see 3,please), can I use it in Germany with my German SIM-card then? Without any drawbacks? 2. Using the phone as a Computer I would like to hook up the phone to an external display using an HDMI cable. Then I would like to be able to do stuff like Word, browse the internet or watch movies. I read this review and in the chapter HD/laptop dock it says I can use simply an HMDI cable to do this. But this "hack report" sounds like there's quite a couple things to do to bypass the desktop dock. Can I simply use an HDMI cable to use the phone as a computer? And what's that whole hack about then? 3. Root/Deodex/Unlock I am completely new to Android so I am not familiar with these terms. What do they mean and is it legal to do it? 4. Keyboard Do I have to buy the Motorola external keyboard or can I use cheaper ones from other manufacturers? 5. Tethering I would like to use the phone as a modem. I mean connect it to the internet and then have internet acces via WiFi with several laptops. Is that possible or are there any restrictions? I was quite confused when I read that the phone requires an AT&T tethering plan? What happens if I buy the phone without a plan? 6. Gingerbread/Updates I read that I can update to Gingerbread via AT&T. Above I mentioned that I won't be using AT&T. How can I update to Gingerbread? And how can I generally run updates? 7. Competitors If there are any competitors that will definitely (=announced exact release date) be available until May, please let me know about them. I'm also happy to hear why/why they are not better than the Atrix! THANK YOU!
