Motorola and AT&T have just released the successor to the original Atrix. While the differences aren’t quite as substantial as from, say the Samsung Galaxy S to the Galaxy S II, there are some fairly significant differences between the two Android powered phones. Of them, perhaps biggest differences are the fact that it’s faster, will have a bigger display, will have significantly faster connectivity, and that Motorola decided to get rid of the finger print reader, a personal favorite of mine.
Atrix 2 specs:
4.3″ qHD Touch Screen
8MP Camera; 1080p Recording
8GB Internal Memory: Comes with 2GB SD Card, supports up to 32GB SD Card
1GB of RAM
1Ghz dual core OMAP processor (similar to Droid 3)
It’s important to point out that just because “4G” isn’t in the name this time that it isn’t 4G/HSPA+ compatible. Look at the specs above again, and you will see that it is 7mbps faster then the original Atrix. Now that’s what I call awesome.
Engadget was at CTIA Enterprise & Applications and did a quick hands-on review of the Atrix 2, which you can find below.
Will you be picking up the Atrix 2? Perhaps the Galaxy Nexus?
