Sporting a "Kevlar strong" body and splash guard nano-coating, the Atrix HD will measure only 8.4 millimeters thick. Motorola's press release and website offered conflicting information regarding the size of the display, stating that it will be 4.5 inches in the former and 4.3 inches in the latter. Both sources do confirm, however, that it will be an HD ColorBoost display.
As for the rest of the specs, the smartphone will run Google Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and will be powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor.
Other features include an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and preloaded extras like Motorola's Circle Widget (which displays information like data usage on the home screen) and the SmartActions app. For those who aren't familiar with it, SmartActions can automatically change the phone's settings throughout the day based on usage; for instance, plugging the phone into a vehicle dock can automatically enable Drive Smart, putting the phone into vehicle mode, read texts aloud, provide turn-by-turn navigation, etc.
The Motorola Atrix HD will cost $100 with a new two-year agreement. And for a limited time, as part of an initiative to promote responsible driving, customers who pick one up at participating locations will receive a vehicle dock for free.
