Motorola Bee Concept Phone Runs Honeycomb, Trumps ATRIX

Over on the lovely and wonderfully wishful designers portfolio Joy Studios, makers of such gems as pre-pre-concept visions of Apple iPad 2, Sony Playstation Portable Phone, and the Apple iPhone Nano, they've got a brand new bag. This new design is a phone that will run Honeycomb out of the box, making use of Android 3.0 to create what they're calling the "big brother" of the Motorola ATRIX. This Motorola Bee can record video in full HD 1080p, has a gigantic 4.3 megapixel screen at 1280x720, and of course works with both its own HD Multimedia Dock and Laptop Dock.

You see the similarities to the ATRIX, I'm sure. Or you don't, but wish you did, therefore take a quick look back at our Motorola ATRIX 4G Hands On and Unboxing post, courtesy of SlashGear. This phone connects to several different media outlets in the same way the ATRIX is being promoted as doing. In addition to the HD Multimedia Dock and the Power Dock, it can plug into a similar Power Dock and has Micro-HDMI output.

Also similar to the ATRIX this phone has a fingerprint scanner for security. Our pal Vince says this feature completely rules. The Motorola Bee has Wifi, Bluetooth 3.0, 3G speed (this is weird considering the 4G speed of the ATRIX,) and 32 GB memory upgradable to 64 GB. The display is AMOLED and has super multi-touch, and there's a whopping 5 megapixel webcam on the front of the phone for video chat. On the back is a generous 8 megapixel camera with flash, and it just looks very lovely, wouldn't you agree? -- thanks for the tip, Manni!

    The screen is just plain AMOLED? Not even Super AMOLED or Super AMOLED Plus? Umm, pass.

      amoled and super amoled are the same this super amoled is just samsungs version of amoled the quality could be the same being as motorola doesn’t have a tradmarked name for amoled the quality would be distinguished by the resolution 1280×720 which is better than super amoled and super amoled plus

        First of all, use some punctuation, capitalization, or any grammar for that matter. Good gawd, man! Secondly, I don’t know how you can say with a straight face “amoled and super amoled are the same”. I personally own an HTC Nexus One and I have seen a Samsung Galaxy S class device. That “tweek” (sic) is like night and day in terms of brightness, contrast, and clarity.

        True, the Motorola display COULD be the same or better to Samsung’s, but they don’t have have their own AMOLED display fab facility, which means they have to source that part from some other established manufacturer like LG or Samsung. Right now, it seems LG is the golden standard with their NOVA display. I guess we’ll see when it ships/leaks.

        600PPI? Where did you pull that figure out of? I’ll believe that when I see it! FYI, a 1280×720 resolution at a 4.3″ diagonal is actually more like 341 PPI. So, while potentially impressive, it isn’t ridiculously impossible. And just for reference, the Galaxy S (SAMOLED) is 233 PPI (Pentile), the Galaxy S II (SAMOLED+) is 218 PPI (RGB matrix), and the Atrix (LCD) is 275 PPI (Pentile).

    This is a tweaner product. 4.3 inches is borderline to big for a phone, and definitely too small for a tablet like experience. You need at least 5 inches to run unaltered honeycomb otherwise you’ll just be squinting the whole time at the widgets. epic fail
