The Motorola Atrix is soon to be released and looks set to receive a warm welcome from those who like upto date technology and high levels of functionality from their gadgets. Features such as a 5 megapixel digital camera, Android operating system and heaps of internal storage makes this great looking handset a winner in an increasingly competitive smartphone market.
The handset measures 117.8x 63.5 x 10.1 mm, so it is slimline and also very lightweight at just 135 g. The 4 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen boasts a pixel size of 540x 960 in which up to 16M individual colours can be displayed, ensuring top notch display quality of the on screen imagery. The screen is made from gorilla glass which protects it from everyday wear and tear, whilst proximity and accelerometer sensors are included as standard. Multi-touch input is supported and there is also a touch sensitive control panel. Another interesting feature of the screen is the biometric fingerprint reader which will allow users to simply use their fingerprint instead of entering a password or pin number.
A generous 16 GB internal storage is provided alongside 1 GB of RAM as standard. Additionally there is an integrated microSD card slot which can accommodate a memory card of up to 32 GB, meaning that users can potentially have 48 GB of storage capacity at their disposal. This means the Motorola Atrix can easily store an entire digital music collection along with any number of video clips, documents or additional downloaded applications.
The Motorola Atrix comes with a wealth of connectivity features, with both GPRS and EDGE being called upon to keep the handset connected to the appropriate cellular networks. In order to browse the internet, an HSDPA connection provides super fast download speeds of 14.4 Mbps in areas where 3G coverage is available. An alternative method of Internet connection can be achieved thanks to Wi-Fi connectivity which allows users to gain an even faster and more reliable connection simply by utilising available wireless networks. Bluetooth and micro USB connections are also provided to connect the handset to compatible hardware devices whilst GPS is on hand to allow functions such as geo-tagging to operate.
A handy 5 megapixel digital camera is on hand to snap high quality images with a pixel resolution of 2592x 1944. The camera boasts Autofocus and image stabilisation along with an LED flash which overcomes the obstacle of low lighting conditions. An additional means of image capture is presented in the form of video capture in 720p quality and, however a future software update will allow video quality of 1080p to be captured.
Social networking integration is provided in the form of Facebook, Twitter and MySpace applications, whilst a versatile internal media player is on hand to support numerous music and video file formats. Adobe Flash 10.1 compatibility allows users to enjoy the best of the net such as embedded games and videos.
Android 2.2 (Froyo) works alongside a 1 GHz processor to provide a versatile user interface and lightning fast operation. The Motorola Atrix offers an impressive alternative to mainstream smartphone models and boasts a number of innovative features which means this is a handset you are likely to see much more of in the coming months.
