AT&T has begun offering the Motorola Atrix HD, a mid-range model with a large display, a speedy dual-core processor, and Android 4.0.
It has a 4.5-inch display with a 1280 x 720 (720p) resolution, giving it a pixel desity of 330 ppi. This is set in an 8.8 mm thick body that's strengthened with Kevlar and includes a splash guard nano-coating.
The Atrix HD runs Google Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) on a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor. It has 1 GB of RAM and 4.7GB of internal storage available to the user. A microSD stot can provide additional storage.
Other features include an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. It is powered by a 1780 mAh battery.
It is bundled with Motorola's Circle Widget which displays information like data usage on the home screen and the SmartActions app that can automatically change the phone's settings throughout the day based on usage -- 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.
Price & Availability
AT&T is asking $100 for the Motorola Atrix HD with a new two-year agreement. That's the same price this carrier is charging for the Motorola Atrix 2, which does support the Webtop accessories.
There appears to be some problem with AT&T's website that's preventing customers from placing an order, but the retailer Best Buy has no such problem, and is asking just $50 for this smartphone, with contract.
For a limited time, as part of an initiative to promote responsible driving, customers who get an Atrix HD at participating locations will receive a vehicle dock for free.
