Motorola ATRIX 2 specs revealed, press shots indicate AT&T launch

Is there any possibility they will name this just the "Motorola Atrix 4g" and it will just be a refresh of the original, taking the other one out the market and keeping the pricing it has now? That'll be nice... Especially since most people don't consider this much of an upgrade from the original.

Weird comment to say, since that won't happen.
I support you though when you said it's not much of a upgrade.
I miss the fingerpront Scanner, the battery that lasts two days, and the at&t branding in front is ugly.
the old atrix already had 1 gb of ram, camera does not matter much as long as its descent. And I think I like tegra... tegra 3??

Halving available storage to 8 gigs? Stupid. The new Lapdock seems kind of ugly too, and I hope the cable isn't some long snaking thing because it invites too much trouble.
However, I'm mostly reserving judgment for when it's launched.

Where's SPRINT's VERSION?? First they delay galaxy s2 by several months until its already obsolete at launch with a pathetic screen resolution and underpowered chipset. Notice ALL 3 others, VERIZON, TMOBILE, ATT, all offering phones within the next month that blow the galaxy s2 out of the water, EXCEPT SPRINT?!? Hell, notice how all 3 of those others have MULTIPLE superior phones from HTC, Motorola, etc., coming out within the next month that blow galaxy s2 out of the water, no mention of ANYTHING coming from sprint in the next few years even!

Please name these phones that "blow the s2 out of the water". Aside from the Prime and the Kal-El phones coming in 2012, nothing is going to dethrone the GSII any time soon. If a phone doesn't have an Exynos at this point, it's automatically slower since it's so much faster than the competition.
Plus, aren't they getting the new EVO soon? That phone looks to be on par with this one.

Your absolutely correct mister. That guy kind of jumped the gun saying all that well actually he is flat out wrong. I heard people say that they think that the sprint version is the best one. Different opinions but from what I have seen the sprint version is a fast and nice phone. And about the exynos chips. They have way faster benchmark test by far. The sad thing is that they do not support LTE yet. LTE is really fast. I played around with a bionic and I am not sure but it seemed to be a lot faster than wifi

This doesn't seem like much of an improvement. A lot of the same specs. Just a bigger screen and uglier body. Also looks kinda fat to not be LTE.

I agree not much of an improvement unless it has LTE. Which unless it saves money cause it is on the same assembly line as the droid bionic if that's possible but with either sinerio LTE should be apart of this phone otherwise it's just a wast because having come out so soon after the atrix 1 it would kinda irritating people that bought the first one. It would be like buying an iPhone five if it came out tomorrow than having a brand new iPhone 5gs come out a couple months lator. Kind of annoying.

This will be fed with a lot of dust by Samsung and HTC flagships.

Or they might be using the cable to connect to the phone so that you could still have aa case on your phone, and also use the dock...but the dock still looks too futuristic.

The laptop dock accessory really interests me. I would be interested in one for my phone if I hadn't already bought a tablet.
