Motorola Atrix 4G is an indication that he is right. The phone itself marks a technological leap, as one of several new Android phones with dual-core processors, but the real revolution is an optional dock that acts like a laptop when the phone is plugged into a separate base is also high definition TV and external monitors with USB ports for full-size keyboard and mouse. Ladies and Gentlemen, silly shells. The Atrix is actually two devices: 4G phone is a high-end dual-core Android, and a laptop. Breaking the phone in the back of a new laptop dock, the powers of a same size screen and keyboard with a modified version of Android (Linux) screen made to look like a desktop computer.
eWEEK test the processing speed of 4G Atrix, which is the deployment of AT & T in the first quarter, and the Bionic Droid, Verizon Wireless offered in the second quarter. The test was done side by side with the power of 1 GHz Droid X. Although X is not far behind Droid data pipes, eWEEK noticed a marked decrease in the latency of the X Droid to new devices.
First, the phone. For a telephone to also run a laptop, need a bit of power. From what we saw, Atrix has some impressive specifications. The Android 2.2 device is powered by NVIDIA Tegra 2 1 GHz dual-core processor AP20H (one of the first mobile dual-core) and has an impressive 1 GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, a powerful 1930 mAh, a 540 × 960 4-inch multi-touch LCD gorilla (zero and resistant to breakage), a VGA front facing camera, a 5MP camera that can record video back to 720p, and a proximity sensor for auto-off.
When your smartphone is based, the software launches desktop screen 11.6-inch laptop with a full version of Mozilla Firefox browser and Adobe Flash 10.1. If you believe that demand for Google to spend 90 percent of our computing time on the web browser, the spring Atrix is pretty close to being a fully portable, and can use the Citrix virtualization services to access applications PC over the Internet. The base software also can access the Android operating system, so you can run full-screen applications.
The 720p HD video dock fed to external monitors or TVs, and although software can access the base of the laptop and a Web browser, also has its own multimedia interface quickly launch movies, music and photos. Atrix by Motorola is a potentially damaging development for wireless operators, because while they are trying to push more data plans to users of laptops and tablets, the Atrix is the beginning of the building back to a single device. Why get a 3G netbook shell move if your smartphone makes almost all the same tasks?
And yet, AT & T carry the Atrix when it launches this quarter. If AT & T does not mud up the pricing data or charge a fortune for the docks, which could only get a glimpse of the future in the coming months.
