Review: Motorola Atrix 4G
From the home screen, press the phone icon and the dialer pops open. The dialer is the stock Android dialer. There is a large number pad in the middle of the screen, and there are four tabs along the top to access the call log, contacts and favorites. The Atrix 4G offers haptic feedback when you dial numbers, which is a nice touch. Users can choose to disable that if they wish. Nothing really new to report here.
The Atrix 4G will import all your Google and Exchange contacts if you have them. Adding Facebook friends is optional. If you choose to do that, the contacts application is smart enough to add the Facebook profile photos to your existing contacts and merge them into one contact.

If you press the area next to the profile picture/Android, it will open the contact's page. Use the menu key to make changes or perform other actions.
You can also choose to sort contacts via status updates and/or your most recent calling/texting history. Swipe to the left to see all the most recent messages you've sent/received and who you've sent them to. Swipe to the right to see your contacts' most recent Facebook (and Twitter if you want) status updates.
We go hands-on with "the world's most powerful smartphone," the Motorola Atrix 4G. The Atrix 4G packs killer hardware specs and Motorola's Motoblur interface on top of Android 2.2.
