HTC Thunderbolt display comparison: looks are deceiving

Users of the new HTC Thunderbolt may be quite happy with the phone's touchscreen display ... so long as they don't show it next to the Google Nexus S or the Atrix 4G. Comparing the Thunderbolt's TFT display with the Google Nexus S Super AMOLED display or even the Atrix 4g qHD display, it really shows just how muted and washed out the images from the TBolt really look. But according to the review by Vince over at SlashGear, it's still a pretty impressive display. Users just shouldn't succumb to display envy.

Motorola Atrix headed to T-Mobile UK in June

This morning some news has came up that T-Mobile UK looks to be getting the Motorola Atrix. The date I'm hearing is starting in June, but no exact time frame has been given by T-Mobile. Hopefully they plan to release it before June because by then I expect there to be more than a few dual core phones to compete with it. Sooner the better T-Mobile.

AT&T Responds to Atrix upload speed cap complaints

Last week, we reported of complaints that AT&T was apparently caping upload speeds on the Atrix 4G Phone to 300 kbps, far below what the phone is cable of and nowhere near 4G speed. Well AT&T has responded to the complaints and assuring their customers that they aren't capping upload speeds at all, but rather, they're not offering 4G uploads period... yet. HUH? Aren't they already selling it as a 4G phone? Can you say "class action?"

ATRIX 4G Webtop on ANY HDMI Connection

Oh joyous day, we'd hoped this sort of functionality would be coming soon - and like any great innovation, it was already built in to the phone, just waiting for some intrepid developer to uncover it. This is the key to getting the ATRIX 4G's Webtop app working via any HDMI capable screen, simply by removing the Device ID check from the Webtop Launcher in PortalApp.apk and making the DockProvider/DockService show Webtop as an option whenever your ATRIX 4G is connected via HDMI! This lovely functionality is brought to you by none other than "Fenny," a smooth dev from over XDA way. Check below for the interactions.

Is AT&T capping upload speeds on 4G phones?

There's a movement of angry Atrix fans who think that AT&T is capping upload speeds dramatically on the Atrix 4G. Comparing the new Motorola handset, users can see by using apps like SpeedTest that the Atrix 4G is not only uploading data slower than the iPhone on the same network (to the tune of 4-10 times slower) but is also dropping calls more often (a shock considering the iPhone 4's penchant at reception issues). Users of both phones pay the same cost in data rates, but the Atrix 4G is being clocked by users at uploading no faster than 300 kpbs. Does the evidence show that AT&T is capping upload speeds?

Atrix 4G price plummets on Amazon

Amazon is really pushing the Atrix 4G for AT&T, dropping the price another twenty bucks to $129.99 with a 2-year contract through MaBell. The 4G Smartphone, which is powerful enough to double as a laptop with the optional dock, is listed at AT&Ts website for $199 subsidized. So, the online retailer seems to have an inside track on so much Atrix inventory that it can undercut even their own suppliers and still swing a profit? Or, more likely they anticipate high demand for users to want the laptop option but are experiencing some sticker shock on the $500 price, thereby giving them motivation to buy both and stay under $700. More sedentary users can use the optional HD Multimedia Dock for $90 plus free shipping. Great if you love movies.

OtterBox unveils Defender case for Atrix 4G smartphone
