Although Motorola Mobility said last week at the CES show that its flagship Atrix superphone will launch on the Orange network in UK by the second quarter, the handset might become available to Americans on the AT&T network on March 1, AndroidCentral has learned through a leaked internal AT&T screen.
The superphone-meets-computer device is billed as the world's most powerful smartphone because it packs in a considerable amount of oomph inside its eleven millimeter thin enclosure.
According to Motorola, the impressive Atrix specs include an unknown dual core processor with 1GB of RAM, with each core running at 1GHz, delivering up to two GHz of processing power.
Other notable features include a four-inch Gorilla Glass-strengthened capacitive display whose 960x540 pixel resolution all but matches Apple's 960x680 Retina display, biometric fingerprint reader and up to 48GB of storage (32GB on an SD card plus 16GB of on board storage).
It's the accessories, however, that turn the Atrix into a netbook-class machine that turns heads. Hook it up to an HDMI-compatible display device with a keyboard or Motorola's Laptop Dock sporting an 11.6-inch screen and full keyboard and the Atrix suddenly replaces a mid-range netbook, thanks to the included webtop application and a web based desktop that supports content-creation applications.
In such a scenario, Motorola promises web surfing with the Firefox browser and access to all your files, emails, photos and movies on a larger screen.
