AT&T to Launch Motorola ATRIX 4G on March 1st

Mobile phone carrier AT&T might put on shelves the new Motorola ATRIX 4G smartphone on March 1st, offering its users the possibility to try out the most powerful handset on the market.

No confirmation on the possible release date of the handset emerged for the time being, but a leaked shot of AT&T's internal system shows March 1st as the planned launch date for the handset (with SKU 65230).

According to a recent article on Android Central, while there are great chances that the handset would indeed come to the market on that day, things might actually turn out differently.

The news site points at the fact that March 1, 2011 is a Tuesday, and that AT&T usually launches new devices on Sundays. But this does not mean that the carrier could not act differently this time.

In addition to unveiling the possible release date for the Motorola ATRIX 4G, the said leaked document also showed some info on the specifications list of the new device.

For example, the new mobile phone comes with a dual-core processor inside (Nvidia Tegra 2), complemented by 1GB of RAM for increased performance levels.

The handset also includes a qHD display, the first in the world, a 5-megapixel photo snapper with video recording capabilities, and a front-facing camera for video calling.

The specifications list of the new device also includes 16GB of internal memory, along with a microSD memory card slot with support for up to 32GB of additional storage space (AT&T would include a card in the package, but no info on its size emerged).

The mobile phone also includes WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth, support for GPS navigation and 3G connectivity, as well as for a series of services compatible with the Android 2.2 Froyo platform it runs.

The phone's 1930 mAh battery can offer up to 9 hours of talk time, or up to 10.4 days of standby time. The handset measures 4.6 x 2.5 x 0.4 inches and weighs in at 4.8 ounces.
