Motorola releasing performance update for ATRIX 2 now

Motorola has just now started rolling out a major software update improving both performance, as well as security. Update v55.13.25 will completely remove Carrier IQ from the device, and if you don't exactly know what that is - navigate here. You'll see about 9 fixes, and of them improved picture clarity delivered from the camera will be most noticeable.

Motorola ATRIX and DROID Bionic fastboot files now available

Just yesterday, we saw fastboot files for the Motorola DROID RAZR leak into existence over on XDA Developers and Now, two other Motorola devices have been graced with another generous leak of fastboot files - the ATRIX, and DROID Bionic. As a recap, I'll note that fastboot files can be used to let a user flash stock recovery images to their device, thus helping them recover from a 'soft brick'.

Motorola Atrix lapdock now just $50 from AT&T

First shown off back at last years CES many were extremely excited about the Motorola Atrix and its lapdock accessory, and with good reason. While the price eventually was quite expensive and the device didn't ship probably as much as many had hoped today we have good news. The AT&T Motorola Atrix Lapdock accessory can now be yours for just $50 dollars, down from current retail price of $299 -- more details below.

CyanogenMod 7 coming to the ATRIX 4G, nightlies available now

The Motorola ATRIX 4G is a pretty solid device, but it's a rare Android phone indeed that the CyanogenMod team can't improve with some clean, optimized software. Brave ATRIX owners can now try their hand at an early build of CyanogenMod 7.1 for the AT&T device, assuming of course that it's already rooted with a custom recovery installed. Like most "official" CM nightlies, it's already surprisingly stable.

Motorola ATRIX 2 Review [Video]

Motorola's ATRIX 2 is a modest update to one of the most exciting smartphones to hit AT&T's network this year. It seems a little soon for the ATRIX to get a sequel, especially since the original is still available - at the same $99 price point, no less. Does some slightly updated hardware and a larger screen add up to a more compelling purchase? Let's find out.

Motorola ATRIX 2 hands-on [Video]

The original Motorola ATRIX was a top-end phone and a curiosity, mostly stemming form the novel addition of the laptop dock and its almost-desktop experience. The ATRIX 2 adds a few improvements, most notably a bigger 4.3-inch screen. Elsewhere the phone is mostly unchanged: same 1GHZ processor and 1GB RAM, same camera, even the same screen resolution. There are a few stylistic differences - the battery cover no longer has a faux carbon fiber look, for example - so let's explore them now. The 4.3-inch qHD screen dominates the front of the ATRIX 2, sparing just enough space for capacitive navigation buttons, a front-facing camera and of course, an AT&T logo. The screen is bright and crisp, the 960 x 540 resolution being put to good use on the large size. The phone itself is a little thick at 10.1 millimeters, but the curved back makes it comfortable enough. On the right side of the phone you get Motorola's standard mini-HDMI and USB ports, while the right side has volume up/down and - YES! - a camera button. Around the back you see an exposed speaker poking through the battery cover and the 8-megapixel, 1080p camera. The battery cover pops off when levered by a thumbnail from the bottom of the phone, and coves the entire back and top and bottom sides. This makes it a devil to get off, but once it's on there's absolutely no danger of it coming loose, which I feel is an acceptable trade-off. The ATRIX 2 comes with a measly 2GB MicroSD card, a poor inclusion on a top-end phone, especially since the internal storage has been halved to 8GB from the original ATRIX's 16. Inside you'll find Motorola's standard subtle Blur customizations running over Gingerbread, and the experience is a lot smoother than some other Moto phones I've seen, even on high-end hardware. The bloatware factor is unfortunately high: an AT&T-branded QR scanner, navigation, two specialized Market links, Live TV, a branded music store, and the Yellow Pages app. Other inclusions are the ubiquitous Let's Golf 2, ZumoCast, Qik, and QuickOffice. Motorola sent along a bevvy of accessories: the new universal Lapdock 100, desktop and car docks, an extended external battery and various cables to take advantage of them all, none of which are included in the retail packaging. All you get in the AT&T box is the phone, a charger wall ward and a USB cable. We'll be taking an in-depth look at the available accessories during the review.The ATRIX 2 is, currently and paradoxically, the same price as the ATRIX 4G at $99. Check out the hands-on video below. Note that I made an error in narration - the original ATRIX did not have a kickstand, that was the Motorola Photon. [vms 9c7956b1df66729296a4] [gallery] [device id=1734]

Samsung Galaxy Nexus rocks a PenTile Matrix display

There has been plenty abuzz about Samsung and Google's latest and greatest, the Galaxy Nexus, but one thing we haven't heard talked about much is the display. Yes it is amazingly gorgeous coming in at 4.65" and having a large 1280 x 720p resolution, but we've had many questions and comments asking about the panel type. Yes the Samsung Galaxy Nexus uses a Pentile Matrix display but don't worry it still looks great. What is the difference between RGB and PenTile you ask? All the details are after the break.

Motorola Atrix 2 now available, just $49 at Amazon

The Motorola Atrix 2 might be one of the faster follow ups we've seen in a while, but its still a great smartphone and is available now from AT&T. Press shots gave us our first solid look back in September and the Atrix 2 was officially announced at CTIA. The original was released less than a year ago, and now the new Atrix 2 is available from AT&T and for only $99. Any Atrix owners feeling a little down?

Motorola Atrix 2 available next week at Costco

We haven't heard a lot about this device lately but Motorola is all set to roll out and ship their new smartphone for AT&T, the Motorola Atrix 2. It has leaked a few times over the past few weeks but we never saw much of it until just recently. Then at CTIA this week Motorola announced it will be for sale starting October 16th. As usual Costco has a few different things in mind and will most likely be undercutting AT&T with a better price, and bundled accessories, so you might want to hold off until we see what they have in store for the Atrix 2.
