Apps

The Atrix ships with an average number of apps at 48 installed out of the box. Some can be deleted, some cannot; either way, there's plenty of room for owners to install their own apps. None of those preinstalled really stand out as spectacular.

Bluetooth

The Atrix support a number Bluetooth profiles, including those that allow you to connect to mono and stereo headsets, other phones, PCs, cars, and so on. It paired with each device without issue and had no trouble communicating with other gear. Phone calls sent to Bluetooth headsets were excellent, as were those sent to my car's communication system. Music sounded OK when passed through stereo Bluetooth speakers.

Clock

If you're in a hurry to check the time, a quite press of the power key lights up the Atrix's display, making the large digital clock visible. The clock is white, so choose your wallpaper carefully. The behavior of the lock screen clock can't be adjusted, but of course there are myriad clock widgets for the home screen panels.

GPS

The Atrix includes Google Maps, Navigation, and Latitude, in addition to AT&T Navigator. You know the drill here. Google Maps is great for a free service, with cool features such as offline use and 3D maps, while AT&T Navigator is a bit more robust when it comes to turn-by-turn directions for an extra monthly fee of $10.
