One of the twelve Android smartphones AT&T has promised to deliver in 2011, Motorola Atrix 4G has just made its appearance at CES 2011, in Las Vegas. The device has been announced alongside Samsung Infuse 4G, another top tier Android smartphone, at the AT&T Developer Summit.The Motorola Atrix 4G has been leaked for the first time last year in December with the name “Olympus” and it is fully compatible with the carrier's 4G mobile broadband network.
This is the first smartphone in AT&T's lineup to feature a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, the world's most advanced mobile processor featuring dual core technology including 3D graphics.
The Atrix 4G runs on the Android 2.2 (Froyo) platform out-of-the-box with MOTOBLUR UI, which seems to have been updated to cope much better with the operating system.
It boasts a huge 4-inch QHD touchscreen with 24-bit color graphics and 960 x 540 pixels resolution. The device also packs a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, as well as secondary front facing camera for video-calls.
Other key features of the Atrix 4G include: HSDPA up to 14.4 Mbps, 16GB of internal memory, microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB), 1GB RAM, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and unlimited usage on AT&T's entire national Wi-Fi network, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP and EDR support and 3.5 mm audio jack.
The smartphone is powered by a high-energy 1930 mAh lithium cell battery, which is rated by the manufacturer for up to 10 days of standby time or up to 9 hours of talk time.
Motorola is expected to launch a special accessory for the Atrix 4G called “Webtop,” which turns the device into a 11.6-inch notebook with full QWERTY keyboard.
According to Motorola, the smartphone will provide users with an additional 8 hours of battery life, thanks to the extra battery included with the “Webtop” accessory.
