Motorola Atrix 4G: Unboxed – The Best Android Phone On AT&T?

This new smartphone from Motorola is very nice; it’s acts as a link between cell phones and laptops with its cool accessories. It has plenty of features to keep you interested. We have already reported on some of the accessories including the laptop dock and also how it has been rooted before it had even been released.

Now that the device has been released on AT&T we have seen an unboxing video over at Phonedog where their author and reviewer Aaron Baker has got the device in his hands and working. There’s quite a lot to the device that makes it interesting such as the lock and power button. We have a question for all of you, is this the best Android device on AT&T?

Let’s just have a recap on the specs that are on the device, it has a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera with LED Flash, a large 4” capacitive touch-screen at the resolution of 540×960 complete with multi-touch. It has a dual-core Tegra 2 processor running at 1GHz, 1024MB or RAM along with much more, check out the full specs over at

The video is at the bottom of the article and kicks off with talking about the box and what comes inside. One of the interesting things for us was the actual power/lock button, in the video Aaron Baker talks a little about a fingerprint security password, which we will talk about in more detail in another post.

What do you think of the device? Will you be picking this up or is there another smartphone that’s caught your eye? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section below.

    i picked mine up yesterday , coming from a iphone 3gs , atrix in comparison has several issues , my biggest one is that you have to power on and then unlock just to get the screen active , when texting this will get annoying , example when someone texts you, the screen does not show the message , you have to power on button , then swipe to unlock , then go to text messages , should i go on?
    but the explorer is fast , but social networking is not user friendly , night be taken mine back soon and waiting for the samsung infuse
