The term ground breaking is used all to often these days, often without good cause. Mobile phone manufacturer Motorolas latest handset, the Atrix, is one item that fully justifies such a hyped up introduction as it takes mobile technology to a whole new level.
At first glance the Atrix looks just like any other smartphone, however it boasts a unique feature that enables it to be used as not only a phone, but also a multi media centre and a satellite navigation system. Using a range of docking stations, the Atrix becomes pretty much anything you want it to be. The basic dock is ideal for standing beside your bed and using as a charger and alarm clock, fairly standard so far. There are other stations available that push this model beyond the realms of other handsets. Take the multimedia dock fro example, this boasts 3 x USB sockets for connecting peripheral equipment such as a keyboard and a mouse, and also an HDMI socket to connect to an HD television. The really unique aspect of this is that when connected to the TV, the phone ceases to work like the Android smartphone that it is, and a Linux based operating system kicks in. Named webtop, this system enables web browsing via the full version of Firefox, as well as allowing you to view your multimedia files on the big screen. Another addition is the excellent "Laptop" dock. This basically adds a screen and keyboard to the phone, giving you laptop functionality as and when you need it.
As a standard mobile phone, the Motorola Atrix is one of the very best available. Sporting a 4 inch display, the screen competes with other similar phones in terms of size. Resolution on the screen however is above and beyond what is offered on other platforms at 960 x 540. This exceeds the 800 x 480 offered on models such as the Motorola Defy, pushing this new handset alongside the likes of the iPhone 4 with its excellent Retina display. The Atrix operates at great speed thanks to a powerful 1Ghz processor that differs from other available as it is dual core, making multi tasking a real joy to use. RAM memory is also hefty at 1Ghz, nearly doubling what is on offer from many rival brands. The usual array of web connectivity is available, with WiFi and 3G well backed up by the likes of EDGE and GPRS.
The Motorola Atrix really takes mobile phones to a whole new level with its excellent processor as well as the superb docking facilities. This really is the handset for everybody who wants to stay one step ahead of the game.
The Motorola Atrix and the Motorola Xoom are coming soon.
