AT&T and Motorola, or should I say Motorola Mobility, had quite a treat to announce at CES 2011 this week. The Android 2.2 powered Motorola ATRIX 4G will be offered exclusively by AT&T and is being billed as the world’s most powerful smartphone. That’s probably due in part to the phone’s 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra dual core processor which is capable of supporting intense 3D graphics.
Speaking of graphics, consumers will also appreciate the QHD display that offers 24-bit graphics with a refresh rate that’s faster than other smartphones. The Motorola ATRIX 4G will also come with 1GB of RAM with up to 48GB of available memory for storage of songs, photos and files.
Since you’ll be able to keep a lot on your smartphone you’ll be happy to know the ATRIX 4G offers advanced fingerprint recognition which not only makes your phone secure, but easy to access as well. Of course, at its core the ATRIX 4G is a phone right? That means good voice quality is key. Motorola Mobility has that covered as well with its two-microphone noise reduction technology. Naturally, there’s nothing impressive about the “world’s most powerful smartphone” if it just does voice calls. It also supports video conferencing with its front-facing VGA video camera.
With all those specs and features mentioned the crazy thing is that’s not even the coolest thing about the smartphone. A Vehicle Dock will be offered in addition to a HD Multimedia Dock which will allow consumers to connect their smartphone to an HD television to watch videos thanks to its HDMI 720p output. The jaw dropper accessory though has to be the Laptop Dock which turns the ATRIX 4G into a netbook thanks to the included Webtop application along with the dock’s display, QWERTY keyboard and mouse. The fact that the smartphone supports HTML5 is a bonus for the netbook feel.
The Motorola ATRIX 4G is expected to be launched by AT&T sometime during the first quarter.
