Motorola revealed the Atrix HD on its web site, a follow-up to its Atrix line of devices that joins the RAZR family in overall design and appearance. The Atrix HD runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and features a Kevlar back cover for added strength and a water resistant interior. The Atrix HD has a 4.5-inch 1280 x 720 HD display, with what Motorola calls 'ColorBoost" technology and Gorilla Glass. The device is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, which is accompanied by 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and expandable storage up to 32GB via microSD cards. Other features of the Atrix HD include an 8-megapixel camera with autofocus, flash, and 1080p HD video capture; 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi with mobile hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0 LE+EDR, USB 2.0 and microHDMI; and LTE Band 04/17, HDSPA 21.1Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps, and 850/1700/1900/2100 WCDMA. The Atrix HD is powered by a 1780mAh embedded battery and measures 8.4mm thick. Motorola's web site did not indicate when the device might go on sale, nor which carriers might sell the device. However, the device supports AT&T's 3G network, and the image of the Atrix HD on Motorola's web site includes AT&T's globe icon and branding.
Motorola's third attempt at the Atrix brings the charms of a ColorBurst high-def display, LTE 4G, and a powerful 8-megapixel camera to the table. Is the Atrix HD lacking anything, or does it have it all?

Kevlar is a Gimmick
Kevlar used to mean something, these days, when I hear it being included in the linkes of Cellular phones, thats just ridiculous.
I don't see Sonim advertising they put kevlar in any of their phones, but I bet just about any Sonim phone is tougher than this one is.
But I seriously doubt anyone is going to firing bullets at their phone because ...
Hit or miss?
Add some great stereo speakers, and maybe offer Jelly Bean 4.1 version of Android, an...
