Motorola Edison Atrix 2 AT&T

It wasn't long ago that we were treated to an up close and personal look at the Motorola Edison, aka Atrix 2, in the wild, but tonight even more details about the Atrix 4G's successor have come to light. The folks over at This is my next were able to spend some time with the Edison and came away fairly impressed with it. The Edison's design is described as being curvier than the original Atrix, and the handset managed to put up Quadrant scores between 2,100 and 2,400. As far as specs go, you can expect the Edison / Atrix 2 to pack a 4.3-inch 960x540 qHD (non-PenTile) display, 1GHz TI OMAP 4 processor, 8-megapixel camera, 1080p video capture, 1GB RAM, 1,735mAh battery, HSPA+ connectivity, and Android 2.3.5 beneath Motorola's custom UI.

Overall it sounds like the Edison is shaping up to be a suitable follow-up to the Atrix 4G. There's still no word on when it might be launching, but whenever it does, AT&T customers in the market for a new smartphone will likely have a tough time trying to choose either the Edison, the HTC Holiday, or the Samsung Galaxy S II.
