Motorola Atrix 4G is one Olympian of a phone!
posted by Ray S. / Jan 05, 2011, 11:55 AM
Apparently, the Motorola Atrix 4G is no other but the long-rumored Motorola Olympus - a Tegra 2-powered dual-core Android beast, which seems to be dubbed by Moto as "the world's most powerful smartphone"... Ouch. The Olympian of a phone will of course have a giant 4" qHD screen, with 540x960 pixels of resolution, as well as the whooping 1GB of RAM and a monstrous 1930mAh battery to keep the whole thing alive. Pretty impressive to say the least.
So what network will it operate on? AT&T's Ralph De La Vega says that both HSPA+ and LTE should qualify as 4G networks, so which one is it? Well, there's a good and a bad news. Okay, bad news first - it will run on the carrier's current HSPA+ network. The good news? It will be launched in the first half of the year, while AT&T's upcoming LTE devices will see the light of day sometime during the second half. The handset is going to run Android 2.2, customized by the one and only MotoBlur UI.
But that's not all. It seems like Moto is also gearing up to launch a... drum roll, please... laptop dock for the Atrix 4G! That's right, it's a 13.9mm device that you dock your phone into, behind the monitor. Another dock for the Motorola Atrix 4G will also become available as the HD dock. Now we've got to admit that this one seems a lot more like a traditional dock, you know, it reminds us of when dock used to be just a piece of plastic that you place your handset onto.
- Display 4.0" 540 x 960 pixels
- Camera 5 MP / 0.3 MP VGA front
- Processor NVIDIA Tegra 2, Dual-core, 1000 MHz
- Storage 16 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 1930 mAh(9.00h 3G talk time)

AT&T is really hitting T-Mobile in the ass with the new 4G phones. And HOLY CRAP!!!!! That is the most high-end smartphone and makes all the other high-end phones look like mid-range smartphones. Wonder how the HTC Thunderbolt is going to hold up against this. Hope AT&T replace their unlimited data soon because this phone will eat 5Gb without even thinking about it.

I love it, I'll get it. But I have one nitpick.... why the thick bezel? I mean look at the HTC and Samsung phones announced next to it The screen is almost edge-to-edge on them. Anyway, won't get any better than that; and in my books, it's better than the LG Optimus 2X.
