Motorola ATRIX 2 Hands-on and Unboxing [Video]

Motorola ATRIX 2 Hands-on and Unboxing [Video]

Here in the USA the very first smartphone to carry a dual-core processor was the first ATRIX from Motorola - what we've got now is a wholly new device by the name of ATRIX 2 from AT&T, complete with a different brand processor, bigger display, and a whole new set of accessories to complete the package. The original ATRIX 4G lead the way for Motorola with what they called Webtop, a form of operating system that came from the smartphone but was displayed on either the big-screen TV, the home PC monitor, or the brand new "Lapdock," a laptop with the ability to plug the smartphone in to the back of it -- there's a whole new Lapdock (or two!), accessories galore, and the form factor on the ATRIX itself is wholly changed.

Inside the halls of Motorola, the second coming of the ATRIX, also known as the Motorola Edison, is upon us. This follow-up to the first dual-core processor-toting device to hit the shores of the United States has an upgraded dual-core processor (likely a 1.2 or 1.5 GHz OMAP4 chip from Texas Instruments), WONT be an LTE device, and will have an 8-megapixel camera on the back.

Motorola DROID BIONIC incompatible with ATRIX Lapdock

Motorola DROID BIONIC incompatible with ATRIX Lapdock

Bad news if you picked up a Laptop Dock for the Motorola ATRIX and hoped you could use it with the brand new DROID BIONIC: we can confirm that neither peripheral is interchangeable with the other smartphone. Although the original Laptop Dock and new BIONIC Lapdock are the same in theory - an 11.6-inch display, full keyboard and trackpad, to turn the Android smartphone into a notebook replacement - the change in dock design means that there's neither backward or forward compatibility.

Motorola to offer Atrix-style laptop docks for other smartphones in H2 2011

Motorola to offer Atrix-style laptop docks for other smartphones in H2 2011

Back in February, we put up our review of the Motorola Atrix 4G and its cool laptop dock accessory. That laptop dock turned the Atrix smartphone into a netbook that you could use for surfing the web and checking out connect on a larger screen. The smartphone had to be docked for the laptop dock to function since the laptop section has no processing power on its own. The downside to that laptop dock is that the functionality of it wasn’t all we hoped for.

AT&T Admits To FCC Its Network Unprepared For iPhone And iPad

AT&T Admits To FCC Its Network Unprepared For iPhone And iPad

AT&T officially filed with the FCC yesterday seeking approval for their acquisition of T-Mobile. Among the many reasons they gave, one that stood out was an admission that the current state of their network cannot handle the onslaught of iPhones, iPads, and other new smartphones and tablets. Thus, the T-Mobile acquisition is necessary to ensure an improved and stable network for customers. This may explain the controversy starting in February when new devices on the network seemed to have HSUPA intentionally disabled.

Motorola ATRIX 4G review

You have to be a pretty special device to win Best Device of CES, and this year Motorola's ATRIX 4G took away the coveted crown. It's not hard to see why, either: the 4-inch Android smartphone not only pairs NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 processor with a beautiful qHD display, but offers some compelling accessories such as a laptop-style docking station that wants to replace your MacBook Air. Plenty of promise, then, but does the ATRIX 4G deliver the speed, data and flexibility AT&T promise? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
