The smartphone of the future is approaching February 22. Motorola Atrix 4G dual-core handset will officially launch on AT&T next Tuesday, based on a tweet from Motorola Mobility's official Twitter account. The Android-based mostly device is an important landmark, as a result of the Atrix 4G can operate as a daily smartphone or may be hooked as much as a keyboard and monitor for a desktop PC-like experience. But whereas the system is unquestionably the smartphone to watch in 2011 the first-generation Atrix 4G has some serious downsides for the common user.

Winner of numerous awards from the current Shopper Electronics Show (CES), the Motorola Atrix 4G is billed as one among - if not - probably the most highly effective smartphones available. It is because it includes a dual-core processor, with every core operating at 1GHz - thus delivering as much as 2GHz of processing power. The telephone additionally boasts 1GB of RAM, which is about twice the system reminiscence in comparison with other smartphones.

You possibly can sense this pace when opening and running apps, browsing the Net, and for if you're docking the smartphone into one of the accessories to use on bigger screens. We launched the same website on the similar time on both the Motorola Atrix 4G and the new Nexus S, and the Atrix was much quicker at loading the location (and sure, we know one is on AT&T and the opposite on T-Cellular). Apparently, both Android smartphones launched a recreation (Samurai II) at the very same time and have been equally as clean within the performance department.

The Atrix 4G contains a 4-inch touchscreen - and "the world's first qHD show," says Motorola - delivering a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels with 24-bit coloration and a 16:9 facet ratio. Certainly the color and contrast is impressive, however the shiny display has loads of glare when used outdoors (worse than the Nexus S). The 11mm-skinny Atrix 4G is snug to hold in your hand, with its rounded edges and curved back, and isn't any heavier than other smartphones.

Different features embrace twin cameras (together with the flexibility to document 720p HD), 16GB of inner memory (with assist for up to 32GB microSD cards) and built-in Wi-Fi N (2.4GHz and 5.0GHz).One interesting and distinguishing characteristic is the built-in fingerprint reader on the again of the smartphone. Together with (or as an alternative of) making a PIN to unlock your cellphone, you possibly can swipe your left or right forefinger on the black energy button. Set up takes about minutes and it worked flawlessly after that. This non-compulsory biometrics safety characteristic must be a welcome addition for mobile executives carrying around sensitive company data.

Battery life was respectable however not extraordinary, with the battery life indicator showing slightly below one-third of energy left on the end of every day - with reasonable use. Whereas it's powerful and safe, the Motorola Atrix 4G won't blow you away as a smartphone. It's certainly nearly as good as another Android units available on the market, if not a tad higher in most departments - but it's what you are able to do with it that makes it stand out from the crowd. That's, the equipment make the cellphone much more compelling.

It's expensive, however the LapDock worked like a charm, and should be an appealing various to vacationers who need a lightweight laptop whereas on the road. The HD Multimedia Dock additionally worked properly for consuming media, however a couple of other smartphones as we speak have an HDMI output option for a television.
