Earlier this month at CES, Motorola unveiled its ATRIX 4G smartphone, positioning the device as the world’s most powerful smartphone. Combining some impressive hardware with the new Motorola “webtop” application, it very well could be one of the most sought after smartphones this year. So much so, that we’ve even awarded it with one of our “Best of CES 2011” awards.
The ATRIX boasts a dual-core processor totalling 2GHz of processing power, 1GB of RAM, up to 48 GB of storage (16GB internal + 32GB MicroSD card), front and rear facing cameras recording 720p, a fingerprint reader for added security and the world’s first 4.0″ qHD (Quarter High Definition) smartphone display. The ATRIX will run on the Android 2.2 OS (Froyo).
Perhaps the most intriguing feature of the ATRIX is the webtop application. The webtop application runs a Firefox 3.6 browser and supports Flash to allow you a full browsing experience. Used with one of Motorola’s new docks, the ATRIX is unrivalled in the market at this time.
The Motorola Laptop Dock gives users a larger screen (11.6-inch), a keyboard, track pad and up to 8 hours of battery life, allowing a computing experience from your smartphone. Also available will be the Motorola HD Multimedia Dock with 3 USB ports and an HDMI port allowing users to connect their on keyboard, mouse, speakers and monitor. Not only limited to browsing users can still use their Android applications, send messages and make phone calls just by removing the phone from the dock.
The Motorola ATRIX 4G will be carried by AT&T in the US and Bell Mobility in Canada (known only as the Motorola ATRIX smartphone in Canada) and is expected to hit shelves in late January.
