From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auto_Transmission#Automatic_Transmission_Models
Automatic transmission families are usually based on Ravigneaux, Lepelletier, or Simpson planetary gearsets. Each uses some arrangement of one or two central sun gears, and a ring gear, with differing arrangements of planet gears that surround the sun and mesh with the ring. An exception to this is the Honda automatic transmission, which does not contain any planetary gearsets; It is essentially a robotized manual gearbox with a torque converter in the place of a conventional clutch.

is this statement true? Honda's automatic tranmission is a robotized gearbox with a torque converter?

Yes, this is true. Search on Google for "Hondamatic"
