The innovation of mobile cameras has been one of the main goals of many companies.
Among the strongest companies in the mobile device market is Samsung, which has continued to work with ideas and solutions to increasingly improve the quality and versatility of imaging on its mobile devices. By 2020, the company can take the next big step by implementing and using a mutant camera that can make the feature more versatile, with greater focus and smaller optical parts.
The development of this type of technology has been planned since 2005, when Samsung began work to develop a mobile phone with a liquid lens camera and optical zoom capability. At the time, however, this type of technology was still too expensive and too large to deploy on mobile devices. Through a partnership with Varioptic, the company even announced that it would launch a handset with the feature later that year, but the plan did not materialize.
Nowadays the only thing that sets a smart phone apart from a computer is the shell – inside they’re not that different. Motorola realized this and decided to offer several shells: these are two accessories that make the new Atrix phone a desktop PC and a netbook (more or less like those watches that changed bracelets).
Connect the Atrix to the desktop dock (accessory sold separately), and it transforms into a real computer with monitor, keyboard and mouse outputs and a full version of the Firefox browser – with which you can access Flash content and use online services like Google Docs. Internet access is via 3G.
How to netbook
Atrix also has a portable dock (also sold separately), which is shaped like a netbook. Snap the phone on it, and voilà: now you have an ultra-lightweight 10 ″ screen and only 1 kg in weight. It also runs Firefox and has a 7 hour battery life (which, in turn, recharges Atrix’s own battery).
All in sync
The phone continues to make and receive calls when in desktop or netbook mode. And the documents you create in Google Docs are saved on the web and can be accessed anytime – from any machine.

Jonothon traveled from his native England to the United States after accepting help from the Massachusetts Academy to learn how to use his powers and integrate with; Generation X, Emma Frost’s new mutant team. Shortly after landing, while still at the airport, was attacked by Sangria. An evil mutant who feeds on mutant genetic material to survive. Jono got help from Banshee and Generation X and faced the threat.
Sangria captured Câmara with the help of Gayle his ex who blamed him for ruining his life, but the two managed to overcome the pain.
Câmara found the beautiful teammate Escalpo drunk and tried to help her. She steals a kiss from him (though he has no mouth) which panicked Chamber, his power activated and destroyed the girls’ dormitory. Paige didn’t want him to tell anyone she was involved in the blast and Camara misunderstood that she didn’t want anyone to know that she kissed a monster like him. The team faced Omega Red and Câmara proved to be the only one able to resist their death spores having to face the threat alone.
