Motorola Atrix: Possibly the best smart phone in the world

Posted:  January 8, 2011   By:    9 comments   


When you’re talking about innovating the smart phone the Motorola Atrix is the epitome of that. There is so much tech packed into this 4-inch device that it puts some full fledged computers to shame. Just look at the spec sheet.

  • 4-inch 960×540 display
  • 1Ghz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor with 1GB RAM and 16GB of on board storage
  • MicroSD memory expansion up to 32GB
  • 5MP main AF camera with digital zoom and dual LED flash. Supports 720p video (Motorola says 1080p video recording is possible and is coming with a software upgrade post launch). There’s also a secondary forward-facing VGA camera for video chat
  • Power button doubles up as biometric thumbprint scanner
  • Massive 1930mAh battery
  • Android 2.2 with 2.3 upgrade in the pipeline
  • Micro USB connecitivity
  • WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth2 2.1 with EDR

Yup Motorola even managed to cram in a thumbprint scanner and a huge 1930mAh battery in that svelte 10.95mm thin frame. In comparison, the “world’s thinnest smartphone”, the iPhone 4 is 9.3mm thick.

If that doesn’t blow you away, then the two docking stations along with the developed Webtop for the Atrix will. These docks effectively transform the Atrix into a notebook or a multimedia home entertainment player capable of churning out HD videos and images.

The Weptop app is the key to the Atrix’s tremendous appeal. The app essentially turns the Atrix into a capable PC, with a solid looking interface that’s not unlike the Mac OSX. There’s also a full version of Firefox with Flash 10.1 support, a file manager, and Citrix remote desktop support so users can remote access their PCs while away.

Who needs a netbook nowadays? Imagine working out of the office where you only need to dock the Atrix to its laptop dock, to access everything in your work PC at the office. This here is the key to office independence ladies and gentlemen.

The Motorola Laptop Dock features a 11.6-inch display, two USB ports, a spacious keyboard along with a large trackpad that support two-finger scrolling. There’s also a set of built-in stereo speakers and a three-cell battery that can power the whole assembly for up to eight hours. From the pictures, the laptop dock looks thin and light, and judging by the combination of aluminum and plastic that makes up the dock, we can bet that the built quality is going to be top notch.

The Motorola HD Multimedia Dock features a power connector, three USB ports, and an HDMI port, along with an infrared remote. It turns the Atrix 4G into both a multimedia center or a kind of desktop PC when connected to a display and a keyboard/mouse combo.

The question now is when will the Atrix come to Malaysia? We can see so many uses for it.
