Motorola Atrix HD arrives on AT&T
When it comes to the world of smartphones, right now the market can be said to be fragmented into three different groups – the Windows Phone platform is one of them, occupying a minority spot, while the other two would be the Android operating system from Google as well as iOS from Apple. AT&T’s latest offering, the Motorola Atrix HD, is clearly part of the Android camp, where from this Sunday onwards, it will be made available in all AT&T channels for $99.99 a pop. Do not be charmed by the relatively low price point at first glance, as it would mean you will have to agree with a new two-year agreement.
Still, that would be better than purchasing a phone outright as an unlocked model, since you would have to get a data and voice line for the phone anyways. Not only that, if you are already a regular of AT&T for so many years, why not continue the trend and stick to the Motorola Atrix HD for a couple more years? Let us take a closer look at what the Motorola Atrix HD is able to offer underneath the hood in the extended post, shall we?
It goes without saying that the Motorola Atrix HD is the latest addition to Motorola’s Atrix family, where it measures an incredibly thin 8.4mm, but do not think that this is fragile at any time. After all, this puppy is made out of Kevlar, the same kind of material used for bullet proof vests, making it incredibly stable in any situation. Apart from that, the Motorola Atrix HD will also feature a high-tech, invisible nano-coating that doubles up as a splash guard for the outer shell as well as for the electrical circuit boards within.
Owners of the Motorola Atrix HD might find the smartphone to be worth their while thanks to the pre-loaded SMARTACTIONS, which is a free app from Motorola which actually suggests ways to automatically change your phone’s settings throughout the day in order to let you fall into a comfortable routine. For instance, should you place the Motorola ATRIX HD in the Vehicle Navigation Dock accessory and enable Drive Smart, it will automatically send the handset into vehicle mode, reading out any of your text messages, in addition to sending auto-replies to incoming calls and texts while delivering turn-by-turn navigation.
Other hardware specifications include a vibrant 4.5-inch HD ColorBoost display, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities, and a front-facing 720p HD camera. This will be an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich powered device, so you need not fret about not having the latest operating system version, that’s for sure.
