Motorola Officially Introduces the Atrix HD for AT&T
Motorola and AT&T today formally unveiled the Atrix HD after accidentally outing it on Motorola's web site last week. The Atrix HD will be exclusive to AT&T and joins the RAZR family in overall design and appearance. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and features 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 support for AT&T's HSPA/LTE networks. The Atrix HD is run by a 1780mAh embedded battery, measures 8.4mm thick, and has a Kevlar back cover for added strength. The Motorola Atrix HD will cost $99 with a new two-year contract. It will go on sale July 15.
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?
