New Android phones are popping up like crazy at the Consumer Electronics Show. A number of them have Nvidia’s Tegra 2 dual-core ARM-based processor, including the Motorola Atrix smartphone.

This kind of cool new phone is what makes Motorola’s smartphones the “tip of the Android spear,” which is pointed right at Apple’s iPhone. We got an up-close look at the Atrix 4G at Nvidia’s booth. This is AT&T’s first smartphone with a dual-core chip that runs at 2 gigahertz and features 1 gigabyte of RAM. The phone is so powerful that Motorola will offer a dock that lets you plug in the Atrix 4G so you can use it as a virtual laptop.

Check out our video of the device up close and personal.
