As Motorola's exclusive UK launch partner, Orange UK today announced pricing and availability for Motorola ATRIX - the world's most powerful smartphone. From today, consumers will be able to register their interest online or reserve their device from Orange retail shops and Orange telesales ahead of launch in early May. The Motorola ATRIX is the true epitome of mobile computing. The Android handset features a dual core processor which delivers up to 2 GHz of processing power. As a result, Motorola ATRIX is capable of opening web pages twice as fast as most other smartphones, and it has been designed to become a user's primary digital hub to create and edit media content on the go.
Running on Android operating, the Motorola ATRIX also offers Motorola's revolutionary webtop application which runs a full Mozilla Firefox 3.6 browser and supports Adobe Flash Player for rich graphics, animation and video.
To support the device, Motorola has developed two companion accessory docks for purchase separately:
- The Motorola HD Multimedia Dock, which has three USB ports and an HDMI port enabling connections to a keyboard, mouse, speakers and HDMI-compatible monitor for working at your desk, or connecting to an HDMI-compatible television and home theatre audio system for enjoying video, music, games and more
- The Motorola Lapdock, which has an incredibly thin design with an 11.6" screen, 36 Wh three-cell battery that delivers up to eight hours of battery life, full keyboard, stereo speakers, and weighs just 1.1 kilograms. Users simply dock their Motorola ATRIX into the back for true mobility at work, at home and playing on the go in a form factor that's lighter and smaller than most laptops on the market.
The Motorola ATRIX will launch exclusively on Orange and will be free on a £35 per month, 24 month contract, which includes 600 minutes, 750 MB data allowance, unlimited texts, 50 MMS and unlimited Wi-Fi (but also subject to fair usage) per month.
Those who purchase Motorola ATRIX from Orange will also be able to take the Work and Play Kit which includes a remote control, mouse, HD multimedia dock and keyboard for only £49.99 (standard retail price £129.99), and to celebrate the launch, existing Orange pay monthly customers who upgrade to Motorola ATRIX during the month of May this year will receive the Work and Play Kit for free.
Customers will also be able to purchase the Motorola Lapdock from Orange, normally priced at £299.99, at reduced price points on select tariffs. A unique price plan is also being introduced which includes free tethering allowing customers to connect to the internet on the move using the Motorola Lapdock - the new Panther Extra 60 plan also includes 3,000 minutes, 1 GB data allowance, unlimited texts and unlimited Wi-Fi (again subject to fair usage) per month.
Business customers can also get Motorola ATRIX and the Motorola Lapdock bundle free of charge on Solo 55 and existing customers will get a great deal when re-signing with Motorola ATRIX.
