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)
  • 21mbps on AT&T’s HSPA+ Network

Atrix 1 Specs:

  • 4″ qHD Touch Screen
  • 5MP Camera; 720p Recording
  • 16GB Internal Memory; Optional 32GB External SD Card
  • 14mbps on AT&T’s HSPA+ Network

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?
