Motorola Atrix 4G Review:
Motorola Atrix, Android powered touch screen smartphone is now available at Orange UK. It will be available nationwide in Orange stores and even online.
Motorola Atrix runs on 1 GHz dual core processor with 1GB RAM. There is a large 4-inch HD screen with 540*960 resolution with 16GB internal storage and expandable memory up to 48GB via microSD slot. It features Motorola’s WebTop application running on Mozilla Firefox 3.6 browser and even supports Adobe Flash Player for checking out all the animations, videos and high-quality graphics. One can open web pages twice as fast as other smartphones and media content can be created and edited on the go. There is a biometric fingerprint reader for unlocking which is a unique feature from all the other smartphones.
The display of Atrix has been compared to the retina display of Apple iPhone 4, but Atrix is larger in size so that pixel density is not that great and is less smooth. The Atrix runs on Android 2.2 and not the latest Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). The skin of this Motorola Atrix is MotoBlur and apparently this is not the most popular Android skin.

Motorola Atrix Review Summary:
The device is solid and well-built with a sleek design. The fingerprint reader at the top makes Atrix stand out from all the other devices. This also doubles as the power button. The main setback with Atrix is that currently it runs on Android 2.2 especially when latest Android Gingerbread has been out in the market for quite some time. However, it is the future of mobile computing.
