Motorola Atrix 4G packs a dual-core Tegra 2 and is headed to AT&T [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Remember the Motorola Olympus that leaked a few times back and was rumored to be heading to AT&T? It's finally been made official, and it's now known as the Motorola Atrix 4G. Featuring a dual-core Tegra 2 processor and 1GB of RAM, Moto is marketing the Atrix as the most powerful smartphone around. Other Atrix specs include a 4-inch "qHD" (presumably quarter HD, or 960x540) screen, 16GB of onboard storage, a microSD slot that accepts cards up to 32GB in size, a 1930mAh battery, Android 2.2, and a body that's only 10.9mm thick. Additionally, the Moto's Atrix can be used with a docking station to turn it into a laptop of sorts, allowing users to access a Firefox browser with a larger screen and a keyboard and mouse.
Moto will also be launching an HSPA+ tablet on AT&T, which will sport a 10.1-inch display, dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 core, and Honeycomb. Expect the tablet to hit some time in Q2 2011.
The Atrix certainly sounds like a beast of a phone, and I'm glad to see that it's packing a huge battery so that you'll be able to get more than 10 minutes of battery life out of the thing. AT&T is obviously stepping their game up when it comes to Android, bringing in droolworthy devices from Samsung, HTC, and Motorola to bolster their lineup. Which new AT&T Android phone looks best to you?
UPDATE: More specs for the Atrix have come to light. Motorola and AT&T's Android monster will sport the following features:
- 4-inch QHD display, likely with a 960x540 resolution
- Android 2.2 beneath MOTOBLUR
- 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
