Samsung Galaxy fingerprint scanner up next: Note 3 nearly supplied

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 works with a variety of next-generation abilities, most of them based in its unique S Pen technology - one thing it doesn't have (but almost did) is a fingerprint scanner.

According to an anonymous "industry official" speaking with the ETNews network in Korea, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was initially supposed to be part of this first wave (first modern wave, that is,) of print-scanning smartphones.

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.

Inside the halls of Motorola, the second coming of the ATRIX, also known as the Motorola Edison, is upon us.

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.

The phone has been on the market for a while now and we put up our review of the smartphone back in February. Vince called the Atrix 4G a very solid and usable smartphone at the time, even if the 4G speeds were a bit underwhelming.
