If these announcements from AT&T don’t scream, “We’re losing iPhone exclusivity, so we need more Android!” I don’t know what else could be happening. On top of the announcements for the Samsung Infuse, and HTC Inspire, to round out the big 3 Android manufacturers, AT&T announced the Motorola Atrix 4G.
The Motorola Atrix looks like the previously revealed Olympus, featuring 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, a Tegra 2 processor, and an HDMI out port, with an HD dock. As with the other phones, “4G” means HSPA+ not LTE for the Atrix.
[UPDATE 1] Motorola has also announced that the Atrix will come with something simply called the “Laptop Dock”, which will pair with an app called “Webtop” to turn the phone into a smartbook.
The official Motorola Atrix website is up. The spec sheet is as follows:
- NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core 1 Ghz processor
- 1 GB RAM
- 16 GB internal memory
- 4 inch QHD display (supposedly refreshes faster than other screens)
- 5 MP rear camera and VGA front facing camera
- Fingerprint scanning security
- Android 2.2 (Froyo) with MotoBlur
- 1930 mAH battery (one of the biggest I’ve seen in a phone)
As always, more info as it comes.
