Motorola Atrix 4G Pushes Smartphones to New Heights

Even though tablets are getting all the hype during this year’s CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas, one Smartphone stood out and simply amazed everyone. The Motorola Atrix 4G is a powerful 4-inch touch screen Smartphone that supports QHD graphics. Its set to become one of the most popular phones on the market and the hype it receives is only comparable to the iPhone.

The Motorola Atrix 4G packs a powerful 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor. It has speed and power that could easily beat computers released only last year. The power of Tegra 2 is not only inn speed but also in graphics, as the device can support full HD streaming. Complementing the processor is the 4G signal capability which should easily achieve the speed required to stream HD videos.

What really made Motorola Atrix 4G a truly remarkable electronic device is its capability when paired with the right accessory. The device comes with a dock used for external video display with full HD capability. The device doesn’t show the phones screen on an external screen – instead the dock transforms the Smartphone into a virtual computer, as the external video displays a webtop interface. There’s also another dock dedicated for video streaming and another dock that can be used for laptops. The webtop interface comes with Firefox 3.6 version and since the phone is powered by Android 2.2, it can support flash videos. If there is no 4G or even 3G to speed up the streaming, the device supports 802.11n with dual-band Wifi (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz).

Motorola has also announced that the device will be available on the first quarter of 2011 in the USA through AT&T.
