Motorola Mobility has announced the Motorola Atrix Android 2.2 samrtphone, which unleashes the power of the smartphone like never before. Motorola's revolutionary webtop application makes the Motorola Atrix the only smartphone to carry the power of mobile computing inside a pocket. Featuring quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as quadband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA the Motorola Atrix also supports WiFi b/g/n as well as Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. Motorola Atrix includes a dual core processor with each core running at 1 GHz, delivering up to 2 GHz of processing power and 1 GB of RAM.

The Motorola Atrix comes with the world's first qHD display for a smartphone, offering high resolution and 24-bit color, making it easier to read indoors and outdoors. Furthermore it features a front-facing VGA camera and a rear-facing 5 megapixel autofocus camera for video chat and the ability to record HD videos, up to 48 GB of storage (16 GB internal and optional 32 GB microSD card) as well as an optional 3G Mobile Hotspot service for connecting up to four additional WiFi-enabled devices. The biometric fingerprint reader allows to easily unlock the phone while providing extra security and the extra large 1930 mAh battery is made for extended standby and talk time.

The Motorola Atrix is designed to essentially become a user's primary digital hub to create, edit and enjoy documents, media and content. This is facilitated by Motorola's webtop application and by the optional Motorola HD Multimedia Dock and Motorola Laptop Dock that provide users with a larger screen, keyboard and trackpad – enabling an enhanced and more interactive experience with their devices.

Motorola's webtop application runs a full Mozilla Firefox 3.6 browser and supports Adobe Flash Player to open up all the rich graphics, animations and video on the web. While in webtop, users are given a window into the smartphone that enables access to all of the device's functionality within Android. Calls continue uninterrupted if Motorola Atrix is removed from a dock. Plus, the new Entertainment Centre feature lets you show all of the photos, music and videos you already enjoy on-the-go on a big screen in your living room.

Motorola Atrix provides consumers with instantaneous access to all their E-Mails, files and media. While using the webtop application, business customers will benefit from the Citrix Receiver application for complete access to commercial desktop-licensed software. In addition to the full suite of office productivity and E-Mail applications, users can also access a great number of web applications such as, Google Docs, and any HTML application or service from a full desktop browser.

Motorola Atrix runs Android 2.2 with access to more than 100,000 apps and games in the Android Market.

Furthermore, Motorola is highlighting two industry-leading companion docks for Atrix:

  • The Motorola HD Multimedia Dock as 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 theater audio system for enjoying video, music, games and more.
  • The Motorola Laptop Dock has an incredibly thin design with an 11.6" screen, 36Wh 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 is expected to be available in the UK from Orange in Q2-2011 and in the US from AT&T in Q1-2011.
