Enterprise Mobility: Motorola Atrix 4G Android Smartphone Links Media to Big Screens

By Clint Boulton  |  Posted 2011-02-28 Print this article Print
AT&T began selling Motorola's Atrix 4G smartphone, which runs Google's Android 2.2 operating system powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 1GHZ dual-core processor in February for $199.99. As tested by eWEEK, the handset is worth the subsidized price, mostly because it's quite speedy on AT&T's HSPA+ network. We experienced nearly no latency running applications such as YouTube, Angry Birds, Google Maps and Gmail, which all ran faster than on our Motorola Droid X running on Verizon Wireless' CMDA network. Photos were crisp and bright, and snapping shots was actually quicker with this handset than on the Droid X, whose 8-megapixel camera suffers from some latency. The Atrix 4G's 4-inch, quarter high-definition (Qhd) screen also ranks close to the Super Amoled displays that have made Samsung's Galaxy S series famous. We also tested the device with Motorola's HD Multimedia Dock, which is a $79.99 accessory that lets users connect their Atrix 4G to a computer screen or TV through an HDMI cable to port music, video and pictures on a larger screen. Take a look as this eWEEK slide show to see what we found inside the Atrix 4G box.
