iPhone 5 laptop dock incoming?

Insider claims Apple is planning to take on Motorola.

The Apple rumour mill certainly enjoys the odd curveball. And none are more odd than the latest morsel surrounding the forthcoming iPhone 5.

The next-gen phone is apparently getting a dedicated laptop dock, with Apple looking to take on the sleek Motorola Atrix at its own game. The Motorola Atrix has been receiving considerable attention, even topping T3's own Hot 100 best gadgets list.

According to some of ITProPortal’s “intelligence”, the laptop dock will let users slip the iPhone into a slot where a trackpad would normally sit. The iPhone would then be used as a mouse, with the dock running the cell’s iOS software and using its web connection.

The insider even reckons this new iPhone laptop dock will have a Retina Display. Apparently, the iPhone 4 will not play nice, but the next generation iPod touch and the iPhone 5 will.

While an iPhone laptop dock might seem extreme, the idea isn’t as far fetched as it sounds. The Motorola Atrix has proved that a phone can be used as a central computing hub, although surely such an effort from Apple would compromise the iPad.

Bunkum or brilliant? Tell us what you think of the iPhone laptop dock over on our Facebook and Twitter pages now.
