The Motorola Atrix is different from any smartphone you are likely to encounter. Not content with being the most powerful smartphone currently available, it also converts into a handy multi media centre or a laptop when used with the applicable docking station. This alone makes the Atrix stand head and shoulders above the competition.
A range of three docks is what makes the stylish new handset very unique. The first is fairly standard, a desktop dock and charger. Things however get a little more interesting when you look at the second two. A laptop dock effectively converts this mobile phone into a versatile portable computer, complete with its own keyboard, battery, trackpad and stereo speakers. the dock also incorporates an 11.6 inch screen, thus the phone is used purely for its processor and storage capacity, which in itself is impressive at 16GB, with the option to increase this to 32GB by adding a micro SD card. For home entertainment fans, the multi media dock may prove a worthwhile option, enabling simple HDMI connection to an HD ready television, with USB sockets giving you scope for the addition of items such as a keyboard or mouse. This is perfect for not only viewing your own photos or videos, but also downloaded material as well such as movies and music files. Not content with just offering the docks, Motorola have installed software on the handset unique to each of these docks. When fired up, the phone gives you the option of Webtop or Entertainment Centre. The first option gives you your own customised desktop, perfect for the laptop option whilst the Entertainment Centre offers a portal for viewing all manner of media files.
The Motorola Atrix runs on the popular Android operating system. Utilising version 2.2, this is easily upgradable to the latest 2.3 platform. This is teamed with a high quality Nvidia Tegra dual core processor. At 1Ghz this is in line with many modern handsets such as the Motorola Defy, however the fact that it is dual core means performing multiple tasks at once is a much speedier affair. With all of this technology on board, you would be forgiven for thinking that this model may be on the bulky side, but you would be very much forsaken. At just 11mm in depth, the Atrix is a slimline handset on a par with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S, and at just 135 grammes it is pretty lightweight too. A high quality qHD screen ensures whichever material you choose to view look superb thanks to the 960 x 540 resolution, whilst Gorilla glass ensures your screen will stay free from marks for longer than a traditional display.
The Motorola Atrix is a unit that is not only a superb mobile phone, but also a multi purpose device that will meet a whole host of consumer requirements.
