Last updated: Jan 5th, 2011.

The Motorola Atrix 4G brings several firsts to AT&T's lineup, among them a dual-core CPU in the form of NVIDIA's Tegra 2 platform. The CPU is clocked at 1GHz per core, providing enough zip to match the HSPA+ connectivity and 4G download speeds. The Atrix rocks a 4.0-inch qHD display with a 960x540 resolution, a 5MP camera, and 16GB of internal storage.

The handset can plug into an HD docking station or Lapdock accessory, launching a desktop-like interface with full Firefox web browsing capabilities. When not docked, the Atrix sports a custom Motorola interface with enhanced messaging, email, and social networking capabiltiies.
